Erm, when I edit the instruments in a midi in Anvil Studio, what does that channel number fir a track do and what effect will it have on the sound of the song in-game?

The track number has no real effect if that's what you're referring to.

Well, he doesn't mean the track numbr, but the MIDI Channel number, as in:
@**************** Track 1 (Midi-Chn.1) ****************@
But if that has any effect on how it sounds, I don't know. Probably not.

Well the channel 10 should be used for the drum track always. The other channels don't matter.

Anyway, I'd just like to express my compliments on this tutorial, I easily learnt how to insert music. And the video tutorial is very helpful

Can you export the music from G/S/C and import it to FR? How do you if you can?

No, .wav files merely store the data of the sound wave. A .midi file stores the actual notes and instruments. It's easy to create a sound wave from notes played on an instrument, but much harder to figure out which instrument and notes are being played from just a sound wave.

Maginus, I have a question...
How long can a song be in order for it to fit into the ROM? I don't want to push it, but the key change to my song really adds depth. Overall, the song is 1:14. Is that too long or am I far from exceeding the limit lol?

If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

Wonderful vid tutorial. I added Spiders by System of a down and it worked like a dream. Keep up the good work. Maybe make a vid tutorial about voicegroups sometime.

mine says "Can't find file MPlayDef.s" for incluson. Assembling halted." :/ What does that mean?
Edit: Fixed it. The song had to be in the same folder as Mid2Agb.

Huh, I have XP and I keep getting the "VbalComEx6.ocx" doesn't work. I've diowloaeded it, put it in System32, and it still doesn't work. So, I downloaded Sappy 2005 and it still doesn't work. Do, you know what might be wrong with it?

did you register it? (using command prompt, then using regsvr32)

I've never heard of this happening on xp. I had the same prob on vista, if you're getting that error, you probably need other files which I've included a link for you (along with a readme to help you out) http://www.4shared.com/file/10924290...ppy_Files.html

even after installing all of these, I still had problems with sappy. every time i would load a ROM, it would crash. Sappy 10 seems to work fine with these files though. Hope tis helps you with your problem.

Don't use the download from here for Sappy (using the mid2AGB download is fine). Get Sappy from Elitemap's homepage.

I've tried this out and it works great so far, but I have a question regarding the 2005 version (which I'm forced to use as a vista user). It uses the format &####### when this tutorial and the voice group one use the format 0x######, which doesn't work for that version.

My question is, what exactly is the former format, and how does one convert between them?
