Dark Souls uses the sound library FMOD, which has its own sound formats to make programming sound events easier. There are at least 3 file formats related to sounds:

  • FMOD Sample Banks: FSB (FSB4)
  • FMOD Events: FEV (FEV1)
  • Probably also ITL

It is easy to extract sound samples from FSB files with tools like FsbExtractor or fsbext. Sounds are WAV files compressed in MP3s, except 3 files that are still in WAV.

Most files have a name that follow some naming convention: it starts with one of the following letters, then has a unique ID.
