What is a BRR file?
A BRR file is a sound sample file used by Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) games. It stores instruments and voices in a compressed format which are used to make up .SPC SNES soundtrack files.
BRR stands for Bit Rate Reduction or Bit Rate Reduced and is the audio compression used by the SPC700 sound coprocessor in the SNES. The compression method is also used by the PlayStation and Philips CD-i audio processors.
BRR files can be extracted from game ROMs using the AddmusicK tool. The BRR Player can be used to play BRR files. You can use BRR tools to convert BRR files to WAV files, WAV files to BRR files, and rip BRR files from within SPC files into WAV files.
