|Ultra 64 Sound Format|
Ultra 64 Sound Format (USF) is an audio file format created by Adam Gashlin. It is based off of PSF and named after the Nintendo 64's codename: Ultra 64. A Nintendo 64 soundtrack stored in USF will have two file types. USFMINI are the individual song files which contain the instructions for playing each song. There is also a single USFLIB file which contains the instrument data and program information for replay. These files must all be in the same folder.
Desperately needs a simple C based USF to WAV open sourced program.
- 64th Note - Winamp (32-bit only in 2020)
- LazyUSF - foobar2000 (32-bit only in 2020)
- Audacious USF plugin (can record to a file using the Record Stream feature)
All Nintendo 64 games can have their music ripped to USF.
