This was fun to make. Sort of a new style for me, as always. I am still on the quest to figure myself out.

WARNING: Your EDL is set too high, resulting in sample data loss (Your .spc player probably does not emulate the echo writing to SPC700 RAM). The maximum EDL this song can handle is 12, not 15, based on a hex lookup.

At least one other song has also fallen prey to using too high of an EDL value... and I personally dealt with that one, too.

Here's your bugfixed .spc file:

Thanks for sharing your source.

It's not much but at least 283 bytes can be saved be removing duplicate volume commands, removing arp when the volume is off, and changing the pattern length instead of using the pattern break command. Additional bytes could be saved by using volume envelopes.

Also, if you have the same instrument on a track and you set the volume to 1c and the next note is the same instrument and volume you can remove the instrument number and volume command and it will save bytes.

Thanks for the tips!
Since I am using such small samples it doesn't really matter in this case, though. But I'm sure it will be useful later on!
I am usually very sloppy with this kind of stuff. :)

I actually tried removing the instrument number once to see if I could save bytes that way. The tactic didn't work for saving memory on the SNES end, presumably because it was already auto-optimized in some sort of fashion...

I suspect that when I "discovered" that, I must have deleted something else at the same time.

The other suggestions will save 290 bytes. I have seen some songs where I was able to save enough space to add more echo.

It might be better to have an option to have the converter ignore certain commands (like arp) when the volume is off and set the pattern length if pattern break is used.

Another 800-1000 bytes could be saved by using volume envelopes instead of using all those volume commands.
Since the samples being used are so short it still saves space even if several of the samples are duplicated with different volume envelopes.

Ah, one of the other things was when I was converting Amiga mods. I could save bytes by moving the bass drum and snare drum to their own channels. By not switching between instruments on the same channel I was able to save additional space.
