    Hi, I extracted a song for mario kart ds demo and I extracted it twice with VGMtrans, first with midi and dls and second with midi and sf2. The dls one was converted to wav with fl studio 12 and the other with Foobar2000. I think that they sound different. Do you know why. If it is yes the answer: which is the best format, whichis the most acurate? Is the problem with VGMtrans or is from the dls or sf2 files?

    I doubt there are any differences...
    Edit: wait, how did you get the sf2?

    Oh, a newer version can convert to midi + sf2 instead of midi + dls... OK, I'll check the differences.

    There are some differences...
    The sf2 one is slightly better than the dls one.

    Hmm?
    I'm talking about the quality, sf2 is better, I just tested with NSMB.

    Both sf2 and dls can miss some channels though...

    Use Foobar2000 to play/convert mini2sf to wav.
    And yes, you can get the highest quality possible with this.
