ROM Hacks News
The Final Fantasy V advance that restores the sound has now been updated, it now features 100% authentic music and sound effects, and supports all three versions of the ROM (Europe, Japan and America).
Even the reverb was made to sound like the original SNES version.
This version also fixes things that were even wrong in the original GBA release (and previous versions of this hack) : The correct music now plays in correct places, and the framerate drops in the game are eliminated.

ROM Hacks News
The Game Boy Advance of Final Fantasy V featued a terrible port of the music, with aggressive instruments. This hack was made to fix this problem by re-inserting back the original SNES soundtrack in the GBA game.
In this version 2.0, the Final Fantasy V Advance Sound Restoration hack has been completely remade from scratch in a new version, using the same technique used in the Final Fantasy VI advance patch, where the soundtrack was entirely re-sequenced.
The hack also changes a few sound effects, and features a fully orchestrated introduction !
As a plus, this hack also greatly reduces lagging problems that were introduced by reducing the CPU usage for mixing sound. Now all spells will play their animations at the original SNES rate.
