It's been a while everyone. I come here because I seek any help I can get. What I want to do is make Midi system(I will call it like that) in RPG maker XP. That is in my game so it would use it's own instruments. But how does it work in actual Roms and if someone can help then tell me how could I code it in RPG maker XP game? Well? Also this might be helpful with GS engine creating.

This may seem like an odd response, but... have you asked people in the RPG maker forums?  I'm sure they've already figured it out and would be pretty helpful to you.

This topic has some in depth info on the GBA's music format in a spoiler at the bottom of the first post, and in the second post.

As far as programming something for music in RPG Maker, I can't really help since I don't know enough about it's scripting language.  I have my doubts that it provides low enough level audio stream access to do it properly though.

So you want to directly take the music from GS and put it in RPG maker? I doubt that's going to work.

Perhaps you can find midi instruments that sound the same as the GS one and use those to create music.

There's a rigid grap even
Oreads fear the tread"

There may be an add on to allow you to use a midi controller with the samples, but some of Golden Sun's instruments are generated by the engine itself, not samples - I had to manually create samples when inserting them into Pokemon Jupiter back in the day, but it didn't sound perfect. These are mainly used for the synth instruments, such as the lead in Isaac's Battle Theme.

It's more probable though that you can't do this dynamically and you'll have to compose them outside of RPG maker. This is probably a better option anyways because you really don't need to have them running on a midi controller.

Well Yes. My teammates decided that it's also the best. So yeah we got good Soundfont and we are going to change instruments of midi files and output as mp3.

Fox: (If that makes sense.)
October 11, 2018, 12:48:33 AM
Fox: Yeah, I guess so.  More just saying that's a good place to get answers to GS related questions at the moment.

Crystal Sonata: I did before, but I guess I could try it again
October 11, 2018, 12:41:32 AM
Fox: Not much at the moment. This forum seems pretty quiet. Perhaps you'd be interested in joining the Discord for GSHC that seems to have more activity?
October 10, 2018, 11:16:53 PM
Crystal Sonata: Any projects going on? I need a distraction from the daily grind and I'm interested in hacking GS again.
October 10, 2018, 10:02:53 PM
Fox: Thanks, and good to see you too!
October 10, 2018, 10:02:10 PM
Fox: A few people I'm sure... Most likely the regulars of the past. Such as Atrius, Charon, Role, Salanewt....

Crystal Sonata: I find myself wondering who still remembers me here. Obvs you do (Good to see ya Tea)
October 10, 2018, 12:46:11 AM
Fox: On second thought, it might be because you haven't posted much as Crystal Sonata.
October 10, 2018, 12:41:12 AM
Fox: And your intro isn't that bad. - I imagine most people would say the same about theirs?
October 10, 2018, 12:39:39 AM
Fox: :O - You've been gone so long, I think I forgot you were Momo.  Interesting.

Crystal Sonata: I just revisited my dark past on here and ouch. Someone delete that introduction thread please, the cringe.

Crystal Sonata: Aaaaand, she re-appears yet again. My life keeps dragging me away from the internet sadly.
