You know, there is probably a much easier way to rip some games's soundtracks.
A prosounded GBA, GBA SP, or GBA SP with a headphone jack would be sufficient, and the recordings would probably require mixing, but the games are limited by accessibility to levels or music test screen instead of sound driver. With the prosound mod you get a pure unamped signal, and a legitimate GBA render. Personally, I think it would be easiest (and best sounding) to do this with a GBA SP with a DIY prosound mod, and an EZ flash IV so you could flash any ROMS you needed to record and use cheat codes/hacked saves to access sound tests, etc.
Just a thought, for those of you vying for non-Sappy sound tracks.
You'd still wind up with PWM filtering. Which is the main point of the MIDI+SF2 rips, to avoid the filtering.

Problem is, as you know, Camelot uses a custom version of the "Sappy" engine, and thus there are instruments missing. I have discovered, by playing with a MIDI editor, that the problem lies with the soundfonts. If someone could fix the soundfonts, I would be most grateful!

Did you use the -sb option?

Didn't make a difference. Had another go with MidiEditor, and discovered something interesting about the midis - it seems the track data is present but much of the instrument data is not!
For example, I tried changing some of the silent parts at the start of "Wintery Imil" to a recognized instrument and this is what I got:

Wait a minute... How comes the size of the Pokémon Emerald soundtrack is roughly the size of a CD? o_O

Hahaha Its the samples. Plus you've got these unused voice synths that got ripped with it as well. To be honest, I could have left them out, but I'm a bit of a purist.

So...what exactly did you do? And it can it be done for other games?
Posted 22 May 2014 - 10:36 AM
? Oh, all I did was run a script which converts sappy to midi and converts the samples to sf2 soundfonts. If you grab the right plugins for Foobar you can listen to most GBA songs in high quality due tot he samples not being nerfed by the gba or the gsf format. And yeah, as far as other games go, check the first post. Its basically anything sappy based. :P

So I was wondering if anyone had a mirror to GBAMusRiper. Mainly because the one I can find is Romhacking.net, and it doesn't allow for download pausing and doesn't have a direct link to the filso I can redirect the fle to somewhere else with download pausing.
The reason for this is my computer goes stupid after a couple minutes on the same file.

And that's largely my own fault since I registered then, Made numerous horrible attempts in the same thread the years since, then actually tried separately.
Edit: it occurred to me once it finally downloaded that I have no clue how to use these types of programs.
I encountered it first with Xoreos tools, although that was more of a "I want" instead of "I need".
Edit2: fixed. Spaces In the directory name.
