Upon initial extraction using Bregalad's GBA extractor, none of the soundfont's instruments will have actual names. So, in response, it falls on the user to go through and make sense of all the "Types" and "0x009875" and what have you.

Unless you're me and that's too much of a pain in the ass to do every time you wanna use this godly soundfont.

Which brings us, to this: the latest in Waaa techanomology, now excluding the seemingly endless Japanese syllables that are Palm Tree Paradisum

((HI ROBIN, HI CM30, HI JUST A WARIO FAN

HAVE FUN, I LOVE YOU ALL :DD

A version of the Wario Land 4 soundfont I made that names all the presets (and excludes the Palm Tree Paradise lyrics for conciseness)

Complementary MIDIs that came with the initial extracted .sf2. All are compatible w/ soundfont (obviously) and already come pre-named (for the MIDIs that you're gonna care about, anyway)

    Thanks for this. I spent a ton of time sorting through those unlabeled samples.

  • james r.

    almost every sample has a loud blip sound followed by noise.

      That's because of the way they're encoded. The Pulse Waves and the 8-Bit Noise channels all use the same samples (little blips and stuff), just repurposing them via delay and envelope and what have you. So, most of the samples are sounding the way they're supposed to.
      Unless you mean that all the presets are making these sounds, like they're corrupted, in which case try downloading again because I just did and it's fine.
      Either way, ur doin it rong

    I can't download it

      There we go. I was confused as to which option for the publish box meant it could be downloaded, because it works on a X/Check mark system and I thought 'if this is the image then clicking it will set it to this' rather than 'if this is the image then it is set to this'

    The reason why I put together all the presets and named them one by one is because this soundfont is seriously dope as hell: some of the presets-- like the Hurry Up square wave or the Bass Organ-- have sounds that're off the chaaain dude

    It took me something like a full 24 hours to do, if you include the first time I did this, which was when all we had was Colonel Pigmask's version and I had yet to discover the King of Soundfont GUIs that is Polyphone.
