I noticed that this thread was made a couple of years ago - http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php/topic,8776.msg135836.html#msg135836
and piqued my interest. Then I was lead to this - - - http://www.ff6hacking.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=493

Now that we have established some understanding of this structure, let's examine a song. We're going to look at the Battle Theme.
Now, the location of the Battle Theme's instruments starts at Hex Address "054614".
This is what it looks like:
00 0D 00 0E 00 1E 00 02 00 0F 00 11 00 12 00 22 00 14 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
It then proceeded to ask to open Final Fantasy 3.smc.
After trying programs such as WindHex, Cygnus Hex Editor, etc and every time I search for the Offset "054614", none of them have any results and don't show the above address. So, how in the heck can I find these hex values for the SPC data if I can't even find one?
What needs to be done in order to first, find the right programs, second, find the patience to find/hack the hex values and lastly, port SPC data from game to another. I know it's easier to use SPC data that uses a certain driver, i.e. Final Fantasy 6 and Chrono Trigger use the same one, etc. To be honest I'm overwhelmed, but I love a challenge.
