FE7 Native Instrument Map

Recommended Posts

Alright, so, you know how FE7 has all these nice instrument samples, but we can't link our music insertions to them because they're all scattered across different maps for different songs?

Well, I hope to remedy that here. Basically, what I've done is gone through most of the songs in FE 7 and picked out instruments out of the different maps and combined them into one master map. With this, hopefully, we'll be able to start making midi conversions that sound like they should be in fire emblem. Here's the map:

Just open that in a hex editor and paste it in your ROM pretty much anywhere that's word aligned.

Here are the instruments, with the names of the songs they were pulled from (in case you want to hear an example of said instrument).
