Looking for .dcm file that sounds something like this...

Postby Steve » Sun Apr 09, 2017 7:45 am

I'm currently working on a cover ofthis, and I'm trying to find a sample of the drum sound used in song. It's not the more static-y one that can be recreated with the noise column, but the one that you can hear being sampled between them. If anyone has a .dcm file that sounds something like it, it'd be great if I could use it.

Thanks!

I would get a wav/mp3 of the song and then isolate each drum into its own sound file, which you can then load into FamiTracker

Why on earth would you do that instead of loading the spc into spcplay and muting every channel but the drums you need?

Oh, I saw there was an spc file for it, but I wasn't sure if there was a software for spcs, thanks!

EDIT: Where would I find spcplay?

Anyways, does anyone know of a software that can record the audio and use it for famitracker?

Awesome, thanks. My recommendation would be what was said earlier in the thread. Get the song to MP3 or WAV somehow, then edit it down to the sound effect w/ Audacity or whatever. Then just import the edited sound file.

You need SPCTOOL, or Split700 (also at SMWCentral), to extract samples from an SPC file. Additionally you might need to change their sample rates using an audio editor to match the original pitches before they can be imported.

SPCPlay actually supports "saving" WAV files. All player settings will be used, including channel muting; this is another way of obtaining samples, and is often faster if the sample has either a loop point or an envelope.
