Super Mario Advance - Music Pitch Correction

Hack of Super Mario Advance

Description:

In Super Mario Advance, all the songs that came from the SNES (Super Mario All-Stars) version of “Super Mario Bros. 2 / USA” had their pitch slightly increased.

To achieve this, the developers included a command in the song’s data that modifies its pitch to what is heard in-game.

This hack edits all instances of said command so the pitch of the songs is no longer increased, making them sound closer to the SNES version.

Much better

Reviewed By: SuperStarFox on 23 Jan 2022

The music sounds better than it usually was. Originally, the music was pitched a little but didn’t actually sound that bad. But with this patch, the music pitch is toned down a little to be more faithful to its SNES counterpart.

Here’s a little fun fact, if you apply it with the SNES Color Restoration you’ll get the best improved port of the original Super Mario Advance.
