Hi this is Magnius. In this document you're going to find information on the voicegroups used in RSE, as well as some general information about voicegroups. For those of you who have not read the Fire Red voicegroup document yet or are just clueless about what voicegroups are, I'm going to go over the basics of voicegroups.

So what is a voicegroup? Well if I had to define it myself, I would define it as a list of instruments stored in a particular value of a rom. That's my personal definition of what a voicegroup is. But why are voicegroups important you ask? Well, it's because they play such a big role in whether or not a midi you insert into the game sounds good. I'm sure you've all been in a situation where you assemble a midi into the game, but then some of the most important instruments get turned to GBSynth. This is most likely because of A. The instruments that get turned to GBSynth aren't in the voicegroup you assembled the song too or B. You have too many DirectSound instruments.

"But Magnius, how do I know which voicegroups support which instruments?" Well, simply, read through this topic and you'll find out all of that. Below, you're basically gonna find a list of most of the voicegroups in RSE and what instruments they play.

But before we get on to that... I'm gonna list a few things that are true for every voicegroup, as well as some general notes on things regarding the voicegroups.

- Usually, tracks 80 and up are used as GBSynth. In the rare case this ISN'T true for a particular voicegroup, I'll note that.

- Tracks 2-13 are also usually used as GBSynth. There are however, some cases where that's not true. In the case that one of these instruments IS used as a DirectSound track, I'll list it.

- 125, 126 and 127 are used as "Noise" tracks.

- Track 0 is usually the drum track, however, in some voicegroups Track 0 is used as an Acoustic Grand track.

- Tracks 33-38 are commonly used basses in RSE, however, you can only hear in Sappy is Track 38 - Synth Bass 1, in Sappy. So while all the other basses DO play in game, you won't be able to actually hear them in Sappy.

- Be aware that even if a voicegroup has more than 5 DirectSound instruments in it, you can only have 5 DirectSound tracks playing at once. If your song uses drums, that already counts as one of the DirectSound tracks.

Read through all that? Haha. Well then here it is, what you guys have been waiting for! The list!
