Arcade soundfonts

Post by 1983parrothead »

In the VGM community, most people discuss 8-bit (especially the most generic NES APU instrument sets) and 16-bit (mostly the Sonic-based Ultimate Mega Drive soundfont).

But I seem to enjoy the unique sounds of several arcade soundfonts. From Data East's DECO16, DECO32 and DATA EAST MLC SYSTEM to Irem's M72 and M92 Hardwares.

I wonder if it's possible to extract and convert them to things like .sf2 or .opm files?
