Hi everyone. Just made my first spc song, hoping you will take a listen. (It's an original with stylistic features taken from SMW and SMS.)

Happy to hear musical suggestions, but I'm more worried about the tech/procedural side:

1. Any technical problems with it, or reasons it wouldn't work in a rom hack? (I'm very interested in music, not at all interested in level design, so I'm trying to avoid ever diving into LM myself.)

2.I was looking at the submission guidelines - is this "correctly optimized"? How can you tell?

3. What does Rule#5/Guideline#4 mean - "Your submission must include as many original SMW samples as possible." (This doesn't use any external samples, if that matters.)

Thanks everyone. I'm trying not to have my very first submission be rejected.

(Just made a new thread in the Custom Music forum, but apparently I should put this here?)

Thanks Counterfeit. Do you mind clarifying this:

There is also data here that, when looped, is increasing the insertion size, such as [r1r1]2. That would actually be optimal as r1r1r1r1. [r1r1]4 however is better as [r1]8.


What makes the difference in those two cases?

I was trying to submit a custom music file for the first time, and I don't know the insert size. I'm more interested in music than level design, so I was hoping to avoid going into Lunar Magic. I saw someone said that you can open Addmusick from the command prompt and enter -norom? I was able to open Addmusick, but it asks for the ROM name right away, and I obviously don't have one.

Anyone willing to walk me through the steps? (Or should I bite the bullet and get a ROM?)
Perfect - thanks to both of you.
I recently submitted this song:

https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&a=details&id=24177

One thing I didn't notice before I uploaded it is that each time it loops, the vibrato is less and less. The difference between the first and second time is almost imperceptible (which is probably why I didn't notice it before uploading, since SPC700 only loops twice before fading out), but on the third time through the vibrato is almost gone, and by the fourth time (and beyond) there's no vibrato at all.

Easiest to hear on the "trumpet" solo starting at 0:10, which then repeats at 1:11 and so on.

Help appreciated - thanks.
Thanks Tamaki. Doesn't seem to make a difference, but I'll see if I can figure it out.
