I have seen a couple guides like this all over the site, but with users reporting errors with using NUS3Bank editor I decided to create my own in-depth guide explaining how to make NUS3Banks for SSB4 using the NUS3Bank editor.

1. What you will need:

  • Audacity (optional)
  • NUS3Bank Editor
  • The MP3 or WAV file you want to convert
  • A NUS3Bank file (If you don't have one, download the silent NUS3Bank in the downloads section)
  • WinRAR (optional)
WinRAR is for zipping and unzipping files (this will be explained). If you want to download my silent NUS3Bank you will need this, as it will be in a Zip file. If you want to post your NUS3Banks on GameBanana you will also need this.

Audacity is to make sure your MP3/WAV file is at the perfect volume.

You will need an MP3/WAV file to convert, and you will need to have a song to convert. If you don't have one, then you can find a Youtube video with a song and put it through an Youtube to mp3 converter.

Obviously you will need NUS3Bank converter too.

2. (OPTIONAL) Preparing your MP3 or WAV file.

So you have your MP3/ WAV file. One small issue. Is it loud enough? If you want to adjust the volume of your file before converting, which you should, read this guide also written by me:
https://gamebanana.com/tuts/12470
The guide will teach you how to properly check is your song is the right volume, and then fix it. I highly advise checking it out.
Whether or not you fixed your file, on to the next step.

3. (Optional) Unpacking the Silent NUS3Bank

If you want to use my silent NUS3Bank file, then first download the zip file. Unzip the file with WinRAR. Move the NUS3Bank file to NUS3Bank editor master, so it is in the same folder as the .exe file. Keep it there for simplicity.

4. Convert the file.

Now to the converting. Open NUS3Bank editor. (see picture 1)
Click "file", then click "Open NUS3Bank".

Select your NUS3Bank file. Open it. Your file will now appear in the NUS3Bank editor. Click on it so it is highlighted in blue. (see picture 2). While it is selected, click "Replace".

Find your MP3/ WAV file. Open it.

5. To loop or not to loop?

Some pages should flash by. The shorter your song, the quicker they will pass. DO NOT attempt to close any of them, unless you don't want to convert your NUS3Bank. Multiple windows will flash by, then a question will pop up if your MP3/ WAV doesn't loop (meaning when it ends, it ends, the song does not restart on its own).

"No loop was detected, would you like your audio sound to loop from the beginning to the end?" (picture 3)

If you want your song to endlessly repeat in SSB4, select "yes". This is recommended for songs. If you do not want your song to endlessly repeat, select "No". This is recommended for Voices and SFX noises. After your choice, continue to the next step.

6. Convert your file two, Electric Boogaloo.

Some more pages should flash by, and then finally the last question, asking you if you would like to replace your NUS3Bank with the audio file. (see picture 3). Smash that yes button.

Another window will now pop up saying the file has been converted. (see picture 4) Click "Ok". If you did everything correctly, your NUS3Bank editor should look like picture 5, by which I mean the once grey bottom banner should now be light blue. (see picture 5)

Click "file", then "save as". Give your file a name! Name it:
snd_bgm_XXXXX.NUS3Bank
Put whatever you want in the X's. You now have a NUS3Bank! YAY Icanfinallystopwriting! It will say your file has been saved.

7. (Optional) Preparing to post on Gamebanana.

Create a folder. Call it whatever you want. Place the NUS3Bank in the folder. Use WinRAR to zip the folder. You will now have a RAR file! You can post this on Gamebanana!
