In need of Converters - PSF/USF/2SF to WAV

Hello all, I've been tearing my hair out the last few months over something that I don't really have any control.

Basically I'm trying to convert PSF/MiniPSF, USF, PSF2/MiniPSF2, 2SF files to wave files. Sounds simple enough but there is a catch. It has to be done from the command line so no GUI or user intervention at all (it'll be run automatically by a script). I've found converters for many other exotic formats but not these. It can be a Linux or Windows app, as long as it suits the above criteria.

Anyone? Someone save me from my madness :P This is pretty much my last stand now as I'm quite sure I've scoured the entire internet in disbelief that none such converter exists for any of those formats.

    Sounds like you need to head to Tosche station.

    Luke was heading in there to pick up some power converters.

    Alright, but as this is a serious thread that I really need an answer to, I'd appreciate the derailment kept to a minimum.

    I would just put them all in a Winamp playlist and use the Disk Writer plugin as your output option.

    I didn't know anything that could be run from the command line, and I couldn't think of any good Star Wars references. What's the usage scenario? I'm just curious what sort of situation exists where you can't just convert all the files you have at once using a GUI-based program.

    It's on-the-fly transcoding done by the web server. See the site that I'm using it on to see what I mean - http://retrotracks.net

    Hey Prime, nice to see the place is still around. More familiar faces than I was expecting too.

    I'd check and see if these file types can be played using mplayer or VLC in linux. Both of those can transcode on the command line. Just not sure if they support those formats or not.

    They can't play them (those were some of the first apps I checked). Audacious can (with plugins) but it's not capable of command line conversion.
