Today I present ya a lil experiment I made while a was a bit bored.
You all know and maybe like the new Soundtrack from Secret of Mana Remaster available on Steam. If that's the case and you even own it legally, this one is for you.

What it does:
- Converts all needed sk20**.win.sab files to WAV as single looped and not fading out. (used tool: vgmstream)
- Allows you to select the two hidden alternate versions of "Danger" and "The Oracle" which I prefer over the default ones tbh.
- Normalizes the whole soundtrack with the recommended settings from Colines aka "-a -21dBFS" (used tool: normalize)
- Splits the intro sound to two separate files needed for the SNES ROM. (Track 44 and 45 aka "Mysterious Moaning" and "Angel's Fear") (used tool: SoX)
- Converts the WAV files to fully looped MSU-1 PCM files. (used tool: wav2msu) Nice funfact about the .win.sab file format: These files contain the perfect loop sample numbers in their header.
- Adds missing sounds for "Cannon Travel Launch" and "New Contient Rises") made by me. And because everyone seems to do so, added the unused Jingle tracks 33 and 35 too.
- Added silence trimming to track 7 "Close your Eyelids" (-1 sec at start) and track 43 "In the Darkness' Depths" (-4 sec at start) to make em at least fit better in the shorter sequences of the original game.

All tools included, just throw this stuff into your Secret of Mana root folder and wait a bit.

d/l: HERE

Bugs:
- Some sounds are simply too long to fit to some of the original cutscenes. Hard to fix this...
- You tell me^^

OK, no reply, thus I asked Conn if I can post a premade one and he said... Sure:

https://dreimer.eu/msu/SOMRemaster.7z

I am all open to bugs, but as already said... the music was made for the Remaster version and thus a few tracks WILL be too long (even after some splitting and cutting silence) and thus it will be hard to fix that few occasions where this will happen.

This version was made with both the ORIGINAL and the
hidden ALTERNATE versions of "Danger" "The Oracle". Check track 4 and 12 and then rename them by removing the a or o to choose the one you want.

Secret of Mana Script for converting the Remaster Soundtrack Empty Edited MSU Converter Script for ORIGINAL Music

Post by PabloGaldini on Sat 18 Jan 2020 - 4:49

Hi everyone,

after seeing the phenomenal work done by emuandco on his MSU Converter Script for using the Secret of Mana Remake Soundtrack as MSU-1, I decided to re-write the script to make the following possible:

- Using the ORIGINAL SPC soundtrack for Secret of Mana, but thanks to the power of MSU-1 finally without the music sound channel cut-outs that happen frequently when any other sounds (sfx from fighting, running) are played.

- As I personally prefer the original SPC music over any other SOM MSU-1 music pack I have found, this is for all of you that want to experience the original music as originally intended by the composer.

CHANGES FROM EMUANDCO's VERSION:

- REMOVED the following MSU-1 sounds, so the game falls back on the actual SPC in the ROM, due to inconsistent playback, missing sounds or simply because they didn't fit as well (you don't lose anything, as the SNES simply plays the original sound from the ROM, which is what all of these MSU-1 tracks sound like anyway):

07 = Close your Eyelids (converted MSU-1 version would cut off first few notes)
18 = Menu music (converted MSU-1 version got really loud after a few seconds)
25 = Cannon Travel Launch (SFX) (custom sound by emuandco for the REMASTER, but sounded inconsistend with the SPC soundtrack)
26 = Cannon Travel Flying (SFX) (timing of the converted MSU-1 didn't match the length/timing of characters flying)
30 = New Continent Rises (SFX) (custom sound by emuandco for the REMASTER, but sounded inconsistend with the SPC soundtrack)
43 = In the Darkness' Depths (The Dead of Night) (converted MSU-1 version had the wrong timing for the SFX that plays at the end of this opening cutscene; also: original SPC version just sounds better)

WHAT YOU NEED:
- an official copy of the PC version of the Secret of Mana Remake
- the edited converter script
- the MSU-1 patch for Secret of Mana from DarkShock
- OPTIONAL: Secret of Mana Turbo patch (which is what I did all my testing on)

(I also have a pre-made version of the MSU pack, but I'm not sure it's allowed to be posted here)

ALL CREDIT GOES TO emuandco FOR THIS AWESOME TOOL!!!
(all I did was re-write the script with new loop values and file paths)
