Quote from: Bregalad on February 02, 2020, 12:49:54 PMHello again,So I've looked into it, and the issue is pretty simple and is a combination of 2 things :The song you imort uses the Aria of Sorrow soundfont, so you have to adapt the instrument so that they sound good with the Aria of Sorrow soundfont. If you don't they'll sound bad or the sound might even be muted if multiple channels try to use the same PSG channels.The songs you import have more data than the song they replace, and this overflows into the next song. This causes issues such as the 1st track sounding wrong and the tempo being affected.In the end when importing song you have to know what you want. If you want them to sound like their originals, this require much more work than having them adapted to AOS.If you want to adapt the song to AOS you just need to undersand how the soundfont works, which are it's instruments, and adapt the MIDIs so that they use AOS instruments and drums. You also need to make sure no more than 7 direct sound voices are used simultaneously, and that not more than one PSG voice of the same type is used simultaneously.If you want the songs to stay the same (assuming songs from GBA games), you need to import the sound font those songs uses into AOS. This is a long and complicated process. Then if they use more than 7 simultaneous voices (Circle of the Moon does that in some of its songs), you need to hack AOS so that it supports those extra voices. With the risk of seeing the game lagging as this uses more CPU time.If you want to import non-GBA songs basically its the same but you have to import the sondfont from another format, which is even more complex.So at first you have to know which path you want to take. Then I'll be able to help you further.Best regards.

Since you seem to obviously have more interest in realeasing random patches very quickly as opposed to work and do things properly and don't listen to my advice, I won't attempt to help you anymore as this is a pure waste of my time.
QuoteIf I were to use your method. How would I go about changing each instrument in sappy?
Quote from: Bregalad on February 13, 2020, 02:32:54 PMThe simplest is to edit the MIDI files so that they do what you want. This involves no programing whatsoever. Also this is a requirement if you want to have the freedom to arrange the song like you want, not only to change the instruments, but also to remove some notes or change octave, introduce looping etc, etc....Without editing the MIDIs the result will always sound very poor at best, no matter what you do.
