I reccomend you start to don't use TinyMM.
Open your MIDI in a MIDI editor (I'm using FL Studio)
Look at the notes.
Port them to txt.
Do you really think a beginner would know how to do that? Especially with FL Studio which is not that easy to use. Let him start with tinyMM, then when he's more experienced and feels like it, he'll do what you say.
Oh, well, I can try the Luigi370 way, but for now, I'll continue using TinyMM. I listened your spc, and I like it. You used sample banks, is it? One day, I will learn to use them too!
Funny thing: FL tudio is difficult for a beginner?...I use it normally! A bit difficult, but I learned many functions of this.
Quick question: What is the need of the "q7f" or something like that? I saw it in some ports...
It doesn't matter what you're using in the least bit. You can still use tinymm and still get it to sound amazing and for the record L370, nice detuned samples you got there.
Yeah anyway Silver, that's entirely up to you, everyone has their way of porting some people look at sheet music, some people copy notes in FL, some people use tinymm, some people port by ear. Also I wouldn't recommend diving into using brr just yet either, compiling a bnk is much easier.
-------------------- I think a post layout goes here somewhere...
Thank you all for the tips. I tried a song with L370 method, but I realised that is still too difficult for me. I'll continue using TinyMM....for now.
This summer, I'll try to learn Sample Banks!
I honestly have to agree with Luigi370 on this one; however, I think "look at the notes" could be explained more thoroughly. The unfortunate thing about that is, there is a lot to be explained (It's an entire subject called "Music Theory", taught as its own curriculum in some schools.)
I don't mean to sound discouraging, but it will be difficult to improve your music skills if you can't get a general understanding of music theory. I'm not saying it's impossible, but learning music theory is probably the most efficient method. In fact, you don't have to take a course for it, because it is all documented online on sites like this: http://www.musictheory.net/lessons/10
Added Touhou 8 Mooned insect tune! Listen it, the looping is almost done!
Yayayay! I love Touhou!
EDIT! Improved Mooned Insect and added the so-wonderful Old World tune! Man, it was really hard: it's not for beginners to mute 16 channels into 8 channels...aaand, added a Music layout for decorate the main post!
Man, added Night bird Tune of Touhou 8...and Ghostly Eyes!
It was really really difficult! Also, I think I have to improve it...
Actually, the Ghostly Eyes sounds like screwed...what happened there? I will try to fix it. Because I love Touhou!
EDIT! I want to do an announcement: I need someone that can loop the txt files for me. I'm too lazy to loop txt files, so if someone want to do it for me, PM me and you'll get the job.
In this way I can also submit something, because rules say that the song must be as small as possible.
So, yeah, if you want to help, I will be glad. Of course, big credit will be given!
