    sweet!

    only problem is that most modern songs don't sound good in 8 bit just because of how it is. anyway it seems great now ill have to find some good songs to 8bitize (new word)

    Normally I'd complain about how bad sampled to sequenced (e.g. MP3 to MIDI) audio conversion is, but in this case it actually helps the effect, doesn't it?

    Depends it could give an unnatural grittiness to the sound that doesnt sound faithful to 8 bit games

    Or you could just import music into melodyne, abletons built in midi to mp3 converter or wavetunes which is generally better sounding at quality than the now obsolete WIDI (okay, whatever I still use it too personally) and open it in GXSCC, just a suggestion.

    Bad idea, VSTs are meant for instruments. You put a full song into a basic Audio-to-MIDI plugin it's going to sound awful.

    If you want 8 bit music, go use Famitracker.

    Is the quality of sound lost in this process? 8-bit sound must be like the N=old NES type game sounds :D

    Well, actually sound quality turns out to be pretty good, maybe melody accuracy will be fair/poor, 'cause it's auto midi recognition. Obviously, if you create your own midi from scratch, it will sound good! ^-^
