I have to disagree there.
Here's my take on it. Assuming it's a port of this
theme, you definitely chose a poor MIDI since I'm hearing wrong pitches of notes all over the place. The bass note sequence doesn't even match up (the original bass had fewer notes), and it just sounds dissonant as a whole. I'd try to find a better MIDI to convert, or try to transcribe it by ear if possible (and use headphones too!).
Also, if you're trying to aim for making a port as accurate as possible while unsampled, you should change some of the instruments you're currently using since I feel that there's better SMW samples that can work here. The bass could be a @0, the melodies could either be @1 or @6, and the percussion is using noise (although I'd say it's optional idea since noise can behave strangely at times). Keep in mind that there's ADSR commands that can make SMW samples sound more acceptable. I like using this thread
for finding good ADSR values for SMW samples.
