Tip: Unless you've disabled the bonus game, don't use a goal tape in a vertical level. The bonus game won't appear if a player happens to reach 100 bonus stars there.

I've seen that a lot of original compositions are made with a program and exported as an MP3 file. How is the MP3 file turned into a txt file that can be inserted with addmusic?

Really all they do is just make the MP3 than make a Midi that's close to what it supposed to sound like (or they can go straight ahead and do the txt file from ear) than they turn it into a txt file and do the rest from there.
I change my layout every 4-5 months
In addition, some use keyboards and midi composers to speed the process along.

Edit: My postcount went up by 1!
Songs must be re-sequenced in MIDI format, usually by ear, but can also be converted (not the best method, but it can save some time in some cases).

As for custom songs that you usually hear in MP3 format, they're are usually composed as a MIDI, then given a sound font to make it sound better. MP3s are just previews before they start porting them.

Alternatively, MSU1 can play external MP3 files to play in-game with your game. Personally, I don't support it, but I guess that's just my speculation as a porter. In-rom music is very compressed. :P
