New to ASM Music

I'm interested in learning how to code music in the disassembly format.
Does anyone have any tips/tools/tutorials or something that can help me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Re: New to ASM Music

Are you trying to mod red or crystal?

They are really similar when it comes to music, but they are still somewhat different.

If you are trying to mod red, then I recommend taking a look at https://github.com/mtolly/pokemid

It converts midi files to the text format that the red disassembly requires.
pokemid can be a little bit unreliable if it has a complaint about the format of your midi file but it has generally worked really good for me.

Either way, I recommend getting familiar with the format you see in the music files in the audio/music/ folder.
Then you can tweak/optimize the text files that are generated by pokemid.

I'll be trying to mod crystal, so i assume that I could use that PokeMid thing for it as a base?

Thanks for the reply though! Definitely will look into it.

Re: New to ASM Music

Yeah pokemid was never made compatible with pokecrystal but it would probably be less work to still use pokemid and just manually make the changes that are needed to go from red to crystal
