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

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

DESCRIPTION
       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  con-
       tained  in  the	SoundFont file,	even if	they are not linked by any in-
       strument	in the .sf2 file, but you can  also  extract  only  particular
       samples	by  supplying a	list of	samples	indices	at the end of the com-
       mand 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.
