Could anyone tell me where I can find a .MIX converter? No, I’m not talking about the image format, but a much less known sound format. I in fact don’t really care what it converts the .MIX file into, as long as the new file’s extension is more famous than the .MIX sound format itself 😛
And no, I’m not just about to “convert” [b:67y7o8i0]Track04.MIX[/b:67y7o8i0] into [b:67y7o8i0]Track04.MP3[/b:67y7o8i0] simply by altering the three end letters
Why am I posting this at the [b:67y7o8i0]FMOD[/b:67y7o8i0] forums and not at [url:67y7o8i0]http://www.converters.tk[/url:67y7o8i0]’s forums (their [b:67y7o8i0]MixMan[/b:67y7o8i0] program, the only one that can read .MIXs, didn’t work for me)? Because:
1) I [i:67y7o8i0]did[/i:67y7o8i0], without result, and
2) I saw that there was no known .MIX sound format for [b:67y7o8i0]FMOD[/b:67y7o8i0] to read, and yet when I selected All Files and tried opening the .MIXs, it was able to play all of them without any error at all 😮 That is truly spectacular 8)
I have absolutely no experience in computer sound-creation whatsoever, but since [b:67y7o8i0]FMOD[/b:67y7o8i0] seems to be an all-powerful demon program which can read virtually anything, could the company that made [b:67y7o8i0]FMOD[/b:67y7o8i0] form a sound converter which is format-omniscient as well? 😀
Sorry if I skipped something (e.g. there already is a powerful converter, etc.). In that case, point me towards the end of my problem, and you can cuss at my ignorance prior to banning me from this forum afterwards 😛

[quote="KarLKoX":2vousulv]… .MIX is just a file extension, what i suggest it to open the file with your favorite text editor and chek the first bytes to see if we can extract the header or at least, deduce it….[/quote:2vousulv]
Oh! I’d’ve [i:2vousulv]never[/i:2vousulv] thought of that 😆
temporarily opens in [b:2vousulv]Notepad[/b:2vousulv], the simplest yet [b:2vousulv]best[/b:2vousulv] text editor [i:2vousulv]of all time[/i:2vousulv] 8)
And yes, I grant you permission for begging to differ 😉
[code:2vousulv]RIFF ÉWAVEfmt ...[/code:2vousulv]
So does that mean a WAV or RIFF (whatever [i:2vousulv]that[/i:2vousulv] file type is) converter would be able to recognize the two types? Should I try a WAV or RIFF converter, or is there something completely different at hand? 😕
As a side-note, wow; this thread’s become popular already 😀
If fmod can play the files, and if the header said:
RIFF ÉWAVEfmt …
Then obviously you do not need a converter at all, FMOD can already
play it. It is just a wave file or some kind of ADPCM encoding. All you need
to do is rename the extension from .mix to something that is more
I in fact don’t really care what it converts the .MIX file into, as long as the new file’s [b:23gw22qr]extension[/b:23gw22qr] is more famous than the .MIX sound format itself
The name of a file is not important. If i take a bitmap and name it
Keron.mix, and if i open it in paint and see a picture…. what would that
tell you? It is obviously a format that paint can read. so it is either a bitmap
or a gif, or a jpg or whatever else paint can read.
the extension is irrelevant, it is what is inside that counts.
Just out of curiosity, how big is one of these “.mix” files? Less than
5,000 KB or larger? A typical mp3 is about 2,000 to 7,000 kb in size
a wave file is usaually around 15,000 to 80,000 kb
Do you have any programming experience at all?
I don’t exactly know what he meant, but i think he is saying to Open the
file and check to see if the file header is mp3, riff (wav) or something else.
can you point me to a place where you got these .mix files? I can check to
see what it really is.
Don’t worry about being banned from the forum. Iv’e asked some
pretty retarded questions in my time here
Dang, I [i:5t74pr84]am[/i:5t74pr84] a moron; One of the files is a .MUS (though the other 4 are .MIXs) 😆 But [url=http://www.google.com:5t74pr84]Google[/url:5t74pr84] came up with the same results Can some guidance towards [i:5t74pr84]that[/i:5t74pr84] be given as well?
[quote:5t74pr84]Do you have any programming experience at all?…[/quote:5t74pr84]
Uh, um… well, I can hex-edit some applications a bit and extract .ICOs or .WAVs from .EXEs 😳

It’s .MIX, no doubt about it [b:5t74pr84]:-|[/b:5t74pr84]
[quote:5t74pr84]…can you point me to a place where you got these .mix files?…[/quote:5t74pr84]
I can’t give you an exact link, but gimme your e-mail, [i:5t74pr84]brett[/i:5t74pr84], so I can e-mail you it as an attachment for you to upload to this topic yourself* and you’ll soon have it in your research laboratory, dissecting it for further investigation 8)
