Following my previous guides with this one, here's the guide on how to extract the Mass Effect 1 music files from the game data archives:

  • Download Psychonauts Explorer by Ben Gorman
  • Extract the zip archive into an empty folder and run the program
  • Click the "Open" button
  • Open C:\Program Files\Mass Effect\BioGame\CookedPC\Packages\ISACT\music_bank.isb
  • For additional tracks, open music_knossos.isb from the same folder
  • For additional tracks, open music_bunker.isb from the same folder
  • For additional tracks, open music_unc.isb from the same folder
  • Click the "Dump All" button to extract the music as wav files
  • Click the "Save All Audio Files" button to extract the music as ogg files (click on a track to show this button)
  • Choose a folder for the program to extract the files into
Depending on whether you prefer the ogg and wav formats or not, you may want to convert the music files into some other format. The music files are extracted with pretty self-explanatory file names.

Matt, it would be best to address the tool's creator for support as we are not equipped to handle such queries. At least, I'm not, maybe some kind soul around here is, but no guarantees. :(

Make sure you've extracted both FreeImage.dll and PsychonautsExplorer.exe, as they need to be in the same folder for the .exe to work.

hey, i know this is a very old thread, but does anyone know where one could find the sound effect files? i'm having to scroll through them one by one and it's a lot of data to sift through.
