The main melody sounds way off, and that's because it's actually literally impossible to have on the GBA, so I made the best of what I could.

If you don't mind me asking, what limitations did the GBA have?

The melody uses one instrument (43) which is a square. The DS can use many of the same type since it only has one square apparently, which HGSS uses in gbp music often. However, since it plays more than one at a time, the GBA can't do that and only plays the first note.

Simply use gbfont and import the instruments as direct sound instruments. That font is as close to the original hardware as one can achieve through direct sound and crushes the GB player on the DS any day.

However, it'd surpass the directsound limit since it's already hitting 15. Adding two more (plus the chords they play) will basically mean 0 drums. And half the song out of the picture.

Crafty conversion. If done correctly, not noticeable.

But you don't understand, there's a limit on how many sounds I can play, and I'm already past it

I do understand. Edit the song to follow the limits. It is destructive, but if done correctly, not noticable except by hardcore anal muzik junkie monkeys.
