    this tutorial requires that 1 you are using anvil studio, and 2 that you know what you are doing.

    this is ment for music hackers to where you can have multiple instruments without creating multiple tracks, thus saving space.

    first open your midi in anvil studio. if you cannot do that, leave now XD

    you play the song till you get to the place you want the instrument change.

    next, you then go to edit, insert midi controller event.

    a box will pop up. check do not show this again, and click ok.

    now check the box that says show all events, and select program change.

    go to the box that says control value, and type in the number of the instrument - 1

    [example, french horn is 61, but you will type in 60. then select OK. there you have it.]

    there! you have now changed the track to support multiple instruments!
    be sure to follow the instrument standards for your ROM, otherwise, it could turn into gbsynth, which you don't want...

    after searching the internet and finding nothing, i finally opened a midi that had an instrument change, looked at the events list, and figured this out. I decided to post this finding as my first tutorial, but it seems Magnius beat me to it. o well, it was hard to find in his tutorial, so hopefully this edit should help.

        Did you update Anvil Studio or something, because it isn't working for me.

          ill post pics soon.
          Not true, look at part 2 of my music hacking, it documents this and more. And by not true I mean that, yes there was already a tutorial that documented this. Good info nontheless.
          Check out my original music on my youtube channel:

            Very useful tutorial! I had no idea that you could do this.
            What are you so afraid of?
