Nope. It's just for example. You wouldn't need to import a song to import others lol

Oh, that's right, the pics were removed.

This tutorial is extremely old though, I'd follow it but ask questions if you really need to. I never did explain things correctly or update anything, sorry.

Everything still works as it should, but it's not explained in the best of ways and not in the newest swing of things. This is how we used to insert songs, and it takes a long time, but it's useful if you're only adding a song here and there and not trying to redo a whole soundtrack if that makes any sense whatsoever lol

Nope, but this should be enough to do songs and instruments still. This tutorial is OK, but it's not greatly explained which is a pain. But if you understand, then good for you lol
Again, if you have questions just ask me. But it's better not to spam the thread, so join the chat http://chat.linkandzelda.com:9090/?channels=GoGo

I have two questions:

1.) Which Root Key should I type in the calculator: from the Instruments tab (the one with the table) or from the Samples tab (the one to export WAV)?

2.) Should I import type the loop (from the low pass filter frequency) even if it is higher than the sappy shown (example: 20000 / 16565 (almost dls I have ripped are having 20000)?

1: The root key is labeled "root key" lol
The tut shows you where it's found. The pictures are no longer there so you'd have to skip to that part
2: Same thing, the loop is labeled loop lol

I changed the RAM pointers to expand the amount of tracks, it worked well, but some notes doesn't disappear(after title screen) and plays forever.
How can I fix this?

The gen 3 title screens are a bit stupidfunky. They sometimes don't end songs like they should; they perform a fadeSong but it doesn't work fully.

The only way to fix it is to
1: Skip the title screen
2: Create an entirely new title screen
3: Keep the old title screen song

It's 100% not your fault, it's the games' faults.

I don't understand how to change the RAM pointers to expand the amount of playable tracks. All I understand is "change 0A 00 00 00 to 10 00 00 00", but the rest I'm clueless.
Also, is there any possibility you'll make a quick tutorial video on this after you explain it to me? I think it could be really helpful to the more visual learners out there like myself.

You need to point to the RAM offset of 0x03004308, so you'd put 08 43 00 03 at 0x4A32A0

Thanks. Didn't realize I had to type 3004308 backwards. I'm a noob at hex editing if you can't tell.

I didn't know DirectSound track numbers could be expanded so easily, I always figured that was a simple hardware limitation. My whole life has been a lie.

With that knowledge, I will now aggressively fix a lot of my hack music, since before I worked around the 5 DS track limit.

I think your tutorial is missing two things: The modded Sappy actually allows you to increase the DirectSound limit to 12 so that can be used to accurately listen to music, and the GBA synth (Wave Memory, Square 1, Square 2, and Noise) tracks can only play one note at a time, while Directsound and Multi tracks can play chords, but chords will take multiple DirectSound slots for each note playing at once. If this is mentioned and I missed it, then I apologize.

Very nice tutorial!
The only thing I didn't understand is the reason why we need midfix4agb.exe, as it seems not to be included in the tutorial.

I'm surprised that not a lot of people have mentioned this but, a good chunk of the links are no longer available.
Would it be possible to get alternate links for the tools required for this tutorial?

Well this tutorial isn't very great because I wrote this when I was like 14.
My Dropbox has too many people using it, so that's why the links are down.
Sadly there aren't any other great ones (the other ones that exist are all misleading and have inaccurate/guessed/incorrect information)

If you really want to use this tutorial, you can still google for each of the tools because none of them are mine. The only one you won't find is "MidFix4AGB" so ask ipatix for it.

That's the thing.
I have googled for these tools, the problem is that there hasn't been a link that isn't dodgy.
And even when I've taken the risk, it doesn't turn out to be what I was looking for.

In particular, the version of Sappy that automatically updates your computer to include the missing files.

I'm thinking of starting a thread for missing tools and resources. It seems to be a common problem among tutorials that date back a few years.

The Sappy Mod will need to be downloaded from Filetrip because.. it's a mod. It was made by a separate person.

Oh my god, thank you so much for this.
I've been looking everywhere and I'm pretty sure I picked up a few viruses along the way. xD

Thank you once again. :D
