(DSF = Sega Dreamcast Sound Format)

Updates to this page will be posted on my main rip page and not here.

At the moment, I mainly intend to keep my own rips here. For a more complete collection of SSFs/DSFs, with those by others as well, check here:


SSF-related Python scripts
Here are a few scripts that may be of some use for dumping/ripping SSF files. Documentation/usage information is embedded in comments in the scripts themselves if available. If I get enough requests for it, I'll try to provide better documentation/tutorials (probably in HTML) on using these.

Scripts for SDDRVS sound driver

Scripts for AM2 DTPK sound driver
Note to SSF rippers (on DSP effects)
Please don't neglect to include DSP programs if the game uses them. Just because you are not hearing any effects in the player (there's a bug in the Highly Theoretical demo (in_ssf.dll) that is preventing many SSFs from reaching the DSP program load routine) does not mean any DSP programs should be excluded. If you can't find any DSP programs among the game files on the CD, you can try getting them from a dump of sound memory (via or other means). Read the comments in for details on extracting DSP programs.

Along with the DSP program, a sufficient amount of RAM needs to be allocated so it can be used as a ring buffer for delay processing. DSP programs typically need either 0x4040, 0x8040, 0x10040, or 0x20040 bytes of RAM (you can use to find exactly how much RAM the DSP program needs). Also, the starting offset for DSP RAM must be a multiple of 0x2000. If it isn't, the driver will refuse to load the DSP program. DSP RAM size and starting offset is handled in the area map, so if you are using a custom one or one of the general maps provided with, please keep this in mind. See the comments in for more details on the general area maps and DSP RAM.

Yet another thing that needs to be considered when using the DSP is selecting the correct mixer. Basically, you want to make sure that the effect send levels in the selected mixer are not all zero. will give the necessary information on the selected mixer (just make sure the EFSDL values in the selected mixer are not all zero).

Problematic Driver versions
Here is a list of problematic driver versions that aren't playing back properly with the current ripping methods (likely a problem in how the driver is being initialized). I haven't been able to determine why these problems are occuring, and at this stage I would suggest using a different, working version of the sound driver when ripping. If you do use a different driver version, please document it when releasing the sets (in the ssf comment tag or in documentation distributed with the set). To check the driver version used in a SSF, use

Known problematic versions:

About the archive...
SSF rips are not usually very conducive to ssflib/minissf optimization. To save bandwidth in cases where minissf/ssflib is not used, files are stored uncompressed in a 7z solid archive. These sets include a bin2ssf script which will convert the uncompressed .bin files to .ssf files. All sets include English and Japanese tagging scripts as well (running one of these will be necessary for tagging for the uncompressed-stored sets). The scripts require both bin2psf and PSFPoint tools, which can be found at PSF Central.
