Custom music import from SPC?

Hi. There's probably already a thread asking this but I can't find it.

I've been getting familiar with SnesGSS recently, and I'd like to make some custom SMW music with it. Problem is, it only outputs to SPC, and I don't have the SMW instrument set available in a format the program can import.

So, my question is, how would I go about making a vanilla SMW compatible song in SNESGSS and importing it into the game?
A tool that simply inserts SPC files to a SMW ROM doesn't exist, we insert music by making a text file as MML language for AddMusicK, which then can be inserted into the SMW ROM as custom music. SPC files are merely audio dumps of what the sound driver has exported, the music needs to be compatible and optimal with how the game's sound driver works, and sound drivers usually work differently per SNES game.

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a program that automatically converts SNESGSS music files into AMK music text files. Please read this tutorial to get the idea of how to create music files for AMK.

Sidenote: If you work with tracker interface, then IT2AMK that converts IT files (that can be made from softwares like OpenMPT and Schism Tracker) into AMK music files. Though some parts do not get converted properly, and they will have to be fixed manually, in the text files.
Ah, OK, that makes sense. Thanks for the reply!
