In case you're wondering, this is the best I can eke out of the DOS conversion.

The pitched conga has been substituted with a piano, which actually worked okay on the first half, but not too great on the second half.  I think the problem is, in the actual DOS version the conga instrument has an unstable pitch, but with MIDI you might, at best, need to go through a bit of extra work to get the same effect.

Ok, so I guess it would be better not to try to edit them using Anvil Studio then.

Yep, this is the program I use to sequence my songs:

Your converted songs are very good too!

Well, when I have time I'll try to see if I can get my conversion program to produce something more friendly towards Anvil Studio.  I know Anvil Studio is fairly popularly used for doing MIDI editing and other stuff, and it would be a shame if it was excluded from the process of editing Lemming MIDIs.

Incidentally, just wondering, did Anvil Studio fair a little better with the SNES conversion?

I was talking about the MIDI for Beast2 I posted, whether Anvil Studio was able to open it.

But it turns out I actually have Anvil Studio on my computer, just never used it very often.  I tried and it was able to open the MIDI without complain.

I think I might be able get Anvil Studio happy if I always pass my MIDI through Microsoft DirectMusic and re-saved the file from there (as I did for the Beast2 MIDI during a cleanup process).  I'll try to do that for future MIDIs I post.
