Extract Voices from expansion packs
« on: January 29, 2020, 07:10:16 PM »
Is is possible to extract voices from expansion packs in a batch operation? By extract, I don't mean the wave or audio files, I mean only the Voice files (org, vce, liv, swv, clv, mgv, sar, sa2, ldr, drm, swv, nlv, mgv, sfx, lsf, env, cvn/d, cwn/d, uvn/d/i, tvn/d/i, vv1, cv1, vli, t2e)

I learned how to extract Styles, Mutipads, Reg files and midi files from expansions using YEM Content Explorer and it works great and does the extraction in one batch operations.

Is there anyway to perform a similar batch operation to extract voices?

thank you

It is possible to extract voices as vce/sfx files (same kind of files you get if voice is saved to usb stick on keyboard). I use StyleExtractor for that (found it somewhere here on forum). Btw. StyleExtractor will extract voices only from ppi files (not ppf).
Keep in mind, that those voice files aren't really of some practical use -as they actually only contain "info" about (wave) voices. That is, even if you run this voice on keyboard, you hear nothing if "real" voice isn't installed first.
As far I know, there is no tool which would extract wave voices from expansion packs.

The "ppf to wave converter" program can extract voices from Pack. After that it is necessary to arrange the wav files in multisample.

Beeing in a beta version, it will not extract all wave files  :-\ Anyway, those functions are in progress in YEMCEv2, too.

Thank you for that info (and link)!! Haven't tried it yet (only downloaded), but is sure better having something than nothing :)
Edit: just tried PPFtoWave, but it doesn't work for me at all. I can open ppf file (containing voices), but it always fails exporting and shows error messages which aren't really helpful.

@valimates
-that would be extremely practical :)

That's because it cannot handle some kind of samples types, that cannot be decoded back to wave file.
