SM64 Soundbank Documentation Essentials + Soundbank Expansion
After on on and off research project that was going on for 2 years-

I finally present:

SM64 Soundbank Documentation Essentials + Public Expansion Release!

Release Video + Tutorial:

Important: 256MB ROM will only work in certain emulators and flashcarts, so you'll have to repoint the soundbank elsewhere manuallly. Only PJ64 has been tested to work with this. Follow the tutorial yourself if you want to make practical use of this

Soundbank Notes:

The soundbank has three different "segments" with an indicator at the beginning of the table of each one, 1=ASDR, 2=Raw SFX Data, 3=.m64 Data

The controllers that determine the location for SFX, .m64 data, ADSR, and SFX Memory Pool all shared in the same ASM code in the checksum at 80319508-8031990C (Use -245000 to find ROM location)

The reason allocation of the soundbank works is because it is ROM data being loaded into the RAM at a rate that doesn't crash or overwhelm the game, allowing for streamed music to be possible

Creating an .m64 that is intended to play 1 note for "streamed music" will only play for around 5 minutes and it will suddenly stop: to get around this, import your music over the "playsound objects" like the waterfall playsound if the song is over 5 minutes

In order to import sounds into s different ROM location, you must edit the Soundtool's "gameconfigsound.ini" file each time you change the address

SFX Data can be repointed to past the 64MB mark and the ROM will still run, allowing for the soundbank to have 192MB of freespace if done correctly

Soundbank Offset Addresses work by [Starting Address of Table + Offset= Start of First Bank + Offset 2= End of First Bank and Start of Second. Offset 3= Starting Address of Table + Start of Second Bank. Offset 3 + 4= End of 2nd Bank and Start of 3rd. Rinse and Repeat.]

The Offset Addresses look like they'd be 4 bytes long, but only have a 3 byte range, as using a 4-byte offset will freeze the game, the only way to change the location of the whole thing is to change the pointer in the checksum

Segment 1 and 2 of the Soundbank have 0x26 listed Instrument Lists, but Segment 3 only has 0x23 listed Instrument Lists, and the Level Importer M64 Data Lists 0x46 Instrument Lists

Some (not all) Instrumentss (not to be confused with instrument banks) seem to end with a 00 padding that can range from 8-10 bytes (00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00) and/or 16 bytes most commonly (00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00),
although there are large padding areas which I have documented above

There are 2 SFX in which their locations are "undocumented" by the Soundtool [as deleting every sound in the game with the soundtool seem to have no effect on these 2 particular sounds]:
1: The Red Coin Sound
2: The Instrument used in (Beat Level: New High Score/Record)

Most Instruments in the Soundbank use a sample rate that varies 16khz, 8khz, etc
Mario's SFX are 16khz and Peach's Voice Clips are 22050hz

The Waterfall Playsound ASM code is at: AB7F4 and to change the sound that's played, change the value at AB7FC

The prefix that is typically used for the "ADSR" data is 00 02 00 00 00 02

Soundbank Tables Layout (ADSR): There's 0001, then count ctls 16-bits (00026), then starting at offset 0057B724, it's 4-byte offset (from 0057B720), and then 4-byte size, repeat till 0x26 entries.

I have completely redone my tutorial video, making the video nearly twice as short and containing twice as much content as prior.
In the description, I have also included all the tools and docs I used for the creation of it as well

Revised Soundbank Expansion Tutorial:

In addition, I have now ported my soundbank documentation to both the PAL and JAP Versions of SM64. 
This is a showcase of a larger project I have planned in porting a large portion of US ROM documentation to both the JAP and PAL versions of SM64 (such as behavior scripts, level scripts, ROM differences, ROM Map).

Here is a video showcasing the first custom .m64 sequences done from scratch and expanded soundbanks in the PAL/JAP ROMs of SM64:
