Mmmh...not bad actually! You got the chords right, and the port's very catchy overall. However, I think you could try to slow down the vibrato a bit, lower an octave on the main melody and use @4 instead of @6 (though @6 works pretty well too). It should sound a bit closer to the original version. Also, it would be nice if you used some stereo pannings on the various channels.

The battle themes are simply outstanding. Romancing SaGa games seem to be very hard, though.
It's WAY better than your old port, but there are lots of fixable things:
1. The tempo is too fast.
2. That @8 should be @14.
3. A @29 would work better than a @28. Maybe even a @10 $ED $7F $E0 o4 f would work as well (wow that was really specific).
4. Channel #2 can use a @3 or a @2 instead of a @0. I used a @2 but maybe it would work just as well with a @3.
5. Channel #1 should be @1, not @0.
Basically, you just used other instruments. Maybe if you replace them with some of my suggestions it will sound better. Also nice @1 choir.
All those $ED $80 $xF $yy represent the FIR filter, a special command which is used to make the echo somewhat stronger/weaker. For each channel there is a coefficient, which is represented by $yy. It's a bit complicated to understand and I honestly have always used it only for accurate ports. Anyway, you can see the FIR filter of a music by viewing the Mixer in the SPC700 player (click).
