       sf2extract - Extract samples from SoundFont version 2 (.sf2) files.


       sf2extract [ -v ] SF2FILE DESTDIR [SAMPLENR] [ [SAMPLENR] ... ]


       Extract  samples  from  SoundFont  version  2  (.sf2) files. All extracted samples will be
       written in .wav format. You must at least supply name of the .sf2 input file and an output
       path where all extracted samples should be written to.  By default sf2extract extracts all
       samples contained in the SoundFont file, even if they are not linked by any instrument  in
       the  .sf2  file,  but  you can also extract only particular samples by supplying a list of
       samples indices at the end of the command line. You can use the sf2dump(1) tool to see the
       list of available samples and their sample indices of a SoundFont file.

       Stereo  Samples:  Note  that stereo samples are always stored as pair of separate two mono
       samples with Sound Font files. Keep that in mind  when  selecting  individual  samples  by
       index.  sf2dump(1) shows you which (mono) sample is linked to which other (mono) sample to
       form a stereo sample pair.  sf2extract automatically detects if one of the samples is part
       of  a stereo pair and automatically extracts the two as combined interleaved stereo sample
       data to the output .wav file. Hence it is sufficient to pass the index of one of  the  two
       (mono) samples of each stereo pair you want to extract.


              filename of the input SoundFont file

              output path where all samples should be extracted to

              optional index of sample(s) to be exclusively extracted

        -v    print version and exit
