This port is now here
in the SMW music sections if you want to use it in your levels.
Now to reply to some posts:

Damn, this is rad. It's always amazing what some people can do with just the vanilla samples. I can't imagine the fiddling it took to get (what I assume is) the steel drum sounding like that. Good work!
If you're talking about the part at around 0:25, you guess it. That's the steel drum. It sounds the way it is because I had the volume set to zero when the beginning of it plays, leaving only the looped end to be audible.

I like how this one improves on the rendition of the old one Opposable made many years ago.
I was actually rather motivated into porting this song after listening to that since I figured it could sound better, while still keeping it unsampled.

This is basically the max in accuracy in terms of unsampled.
I agree Mark.

It sounds too accurate for unsampled music which is amazing. How is the fast clicking noise done?
@22 for one tick, then a very quick and high-pitched @29 afterwards.

The further into the song I listen, the more amazed I am that it's unsampled. This is such an awesome rendition! I can't begin to imagine how much effort must have gone into getting everything to sound just right. (I didn't expect to be familiar with the song, but it turns out I recognized it - the old port of this is one of those songs everyone seems to be using back in the day. Needless to say yours sounds so much livelier.)
Definitely something worth having posted!
This is a nice post to read! I've worked on this port for a couple of weeks, although I was taking breaks in between. I relied on my ears to get the notes down carefully, which can take a few listens and trail-and-error.

Oh, hey there Banzai Bill-der! Glad you enjoy it my port!

I'm absolutely speechless. I can't believe this didn't use additional samples at all. Words can't describe how amazing you are! See that showing this off was worth it? High five!
