I couldn't find a tutorial of the way to get midi files from GB/GBS.
So, I write tutorial about the way what I found.

Read This Page !!

After you downloaded Emu2MIDI, download MIDI.lua and put it into the same directly of emu2midi.lua.
http://www.pjb.com.au/comp/lua/MIDI.lua

You can find gb rom that was converted from gbs by googling "[gametitle] gbs."
If you couldn't find it, you have to download GBS2GB.

GBfanPlus and GGBOY is DEAD.

----------------------OLD POST----------------------

First, download GBfan Plus and GBS2GB.
We use GBfan Plus to record game music as midi.

Follow pictures and discriptions.

:mellow:GBfanPlus is not supported GBC rom. So you have to download GBS of GBC game and convert GBS to GB.

9 Click "PLAY"


10 Start the game, then pause it when it reaches the point that you want to start MIDI recording.
GBS Player can replay music by inputting START.

13 Choose location where you want to save. If you cancel, GBfan keeps recording midi.

Unfortunatelly I can't find the ggboy ... I only get "visual boy advance" ...

I would mainly like to convert 1 gbs file to midi, as I would like to do a transcription of a GB soundtrack for Classical Guitar Quintett. Could I maybe send you the file and ask you kindly if you could convert it for me and send me back as midi file? ;-)

Cool, thanks. I managed to open the gb file in GGBoy, but I do not understand how I can record the songs to midi. This option is disabled so far ... and it says below 001 of 049 (I guess these are the track numbers). Can I skip them somehow? Track 1 is playing in loop over and over again... ;-)

Thank you for this! One thing you might want to add is that you need to open GBfan Plus with Japanese locale (with a program like this Locale Emulator for example) otherwise the program won't activate.

Need to activate to unlock all functions but I couldn't find the activation password.
You can't use GGBOY without it.

My deepest apologies for the bump but I've been following this thread for a while now and decided to ask for some help because ripping GBC midi's is a general interest of mine, the old tutorial still worked last time I tried it as far as I know and that was a few months ago but of course is very time consuming (I'm not lazy I promise!) if I'm looking to record and rip a specific song from a GBC game, Link's Awakening is a prime example of that without an in-game sound test either and the new instructions on this page seem to be exactly the same if not similar as the old one...I'm just wondering is there another way or has anyone attempted to create a GBC2MIDI program for everyone to use yet? I couldn't and know many people probably don't care which is very understandable and alright in a sense since streamed video game music is more popular than midi now, all I can say is if someones reading this in the near future I hope one is finally made.

I can't understand why people don't make a midi dumper.
Foobar2000 can play sound but why there is no way to dump it as midi?
You can find threads about gb/gbc and midi. Some of them ware posted few years ago !!
Gameboy was released on 1989.
Today, 2018.
