This is sbi files that used in Korean adlib music users. Originally for .bnk file and extracted to .sbi. Of course some of them are duplicated in AdlibTracker and synth-bbs but there are lots of awesome instruments.

Enjoy!

I think it's good there is also support .ins/.bnk format instruments support. Because, in the 90's OPL2 music in Korea, they used Visual Composer and it used .bnk format created in Insmaker. Of course we can extract .sbi from .bnk, but if .bnk file is too big, we can't do it because of 'out of memory' message.

I had a quick look, and it shouldn't be too hard to support .ins format. Do you have some .ins files as an example?

Handling .bnk will be a bit more complicated, because there can be multiple instruments in one file, so there would need to be a UI to handle that.

You can easily extract .SBI/.INS file from .BNK using SBank 1.06(in DOSBox from modern machine)
But I thought again, .INS support is not so useful because when they used Visual Composer, they used .BNK files instead of seperated .INS. (and if we need extract in .BNK, it's not so different using .SBI and .INS)

Visual Composer default instruments (piano1, bdrum1, snare1, tom1, cymbal1 and hihat1) extracted .INS and .SBI.

Thank you very much for contributing the SBI files! I've finally added them in the latest release, and deleted all the duplicates.

https://github.com/bsutherland/JuceOPLVSTi/releases/tag/0.13.1

I'll leave this issue open for INS support.
