NOTE: In order to use added SSEQs, you need to use my mod of NSMBe (It changes the Music Selection Box into a value box)

You also need to insert Roadrunner's code to allow sseq IDs over 112:

Before I start, I'd like to thank RoadRunnerWMC for making this possible, by figuring out how to disable the 111 max sseq limit for levels.

Video Tutorial:

Prerequisites:





Inserting Roadrunner's Patch


1. Put the .s file in the source folder, and run make insert like usual.


Adding Songs With Nitro Studio


1. In the ROM file browser, export sound_data.sdat.
2. Open the sdat with Nitro Studio.
3. In the files section, add the needed SWARs, SBNKs, and the SSEQ for your song.
(If you added any SWARs) 4. Go into the Wave section, and rename "New Entry" to anything for sanity.
(If you added any SBNKs) 5. Go into the Instrument Bank section, rename the entry, and set it to your SWARS:


Edit the name of the new sseq entry, and set it to the correct banks. It should look something like this:


Now hit save, and you added a file!


Using Your Song In-Game


1. In the ROM file browser (of my modded NSMBe), import your new .sdat over sound_data.sdat.
2. Open the ROM in VGM_Trans to see if everything is working right.
3. Open a level, and then a view of the music you want to change.
4. The value you put in the music box is the SSEQ ID, which is found in Nitro Studio:

5. Click another box, click an object, then click the view again to check that the number saved, then hit save!
Enjoy your music!

UPDATE:
You can now preview instrument sounds in Nitro Studio!
Please note, that I can't figure out how to make them have the modifications made in the editor though so...

Here is what they do:

Player Number


Look at the players. That number you have as the player number will play your SSEQ. Usually, you just want this to be 0.

The Priority System


As you may have heard, the DS only supports playback of up to 16 channels at a time. If you have too many channels playing at the same time, some may need to be stopped so that another one can play. Priorities tell what is most important. If an SSEQ has a higher priority than another SSEQ, then the one with the lower priority would be the one to get cut off. I'm not completely sure on the specifics about the channel vs. player priority, but just remember that the higher the number means the more important it is.

Nitro Studio doesn't support SWARs. Yes, it does, and has for a while now. Edit a SWAR or SBNK by double clicking on it. Maybe I should have made that more clear at some point, but oh well. Anyways, here is some info about each file:

SWAR


These are known as Sound Wave Archives. Think of them as like a folder of SWAV files. There really isn't much else to say about them. Banks can hook up to multiple of these and use their SWAVS for audio.

SWAV


The DS's version of a wave file. These are generally used for instrument samples, SFX, voice clips, and other things. They can be PCM8, PCM16, or ADPCM encoded, but that's not really important.

SSEQ uses SBNK for instruments, SBNK uses SWAR for instrument sounds.

Yeah, the main culprit is usually the wave archives. Other games tend to cram tons of SWAVs into these things. You need to try and delete unused SWAVs and edit the SBNK to use the new IDs of the SWAV.
