    Here is something I recently discovered that can help with your games. This is very useful and converts to a .wav file (BTW, .wav is supported by RMXP). So, let's get started!

    Step 1) Find a MIDI file!

    This one is both easy and hard at the same time. For the most part, you can just google the song in MIDI format and there will be a result. But some don't show up, as I saw. I will be using the Attack on Titan opening for this tutorial.



    Step 2) Download GXSCC

    This one is a bit tricky, as it's a Japanese program. The program is in English, but the website is not. To download, click here: http://www.geocities.co.jp/SiliconValley-SanJose/8700/P/GsorigE.htm



    Step 3) Drag the MIDI over GXSCC

    As simple as it says. It takes a whopping two seconds.



    Step 4) Exporting it to a .wav

    This part is easier than it sounds. All you have to do is click the "Authoring" button in between Pause and Config.



    Step 5) ???

    Step 6) Profit!

    BTW, here are the song downloads:

      No. No. No. No.

      This is the WORST kind of 8Bit, it's not even real, you'd be better off usuing NES soundfonts in FL Studio, and rendering it to a .mp3 and it will sound somewhat better quality than, GXSCC.

      Seriously though, apologies if this sound round, but GXSCC is bad. :l

        It sounds fine to me, and FL Studio costs money. :/

        It's really just personal preference, though.

        Edit: After thinking about it, I should've put chiptek instead of 8-bit...

          There's a free version of FL studio, from what I've seen, it's not different to paying.

          GXSCC may sound like chiptune/8bit, but thge instruments are not functioned correctly, making it slightly out of 8bit standard.
