    This is great but, someone can help me with the tempo? I was working on some songs but the tempo is around of 160 and I don't know how to fix the tempo higher about 150.
    Anyway, the mid driver works fine in my FL Studio, very good ValleyBell really, thank you so very much.

    In order to get fitting tempi, you may need to change the Ticks/Quarter and Tempo Divider values.
    For details, look at this post.
    You don't need exact BPM values for the SMPS. Something close to the intended tempo is enough.
    It is more important that the Ticks/Quarter value fits the notes used by the song.

    Hey, love the program, but I've run into some kind of bug. I've been having a problem where I will export the smps, build the ROM just fine, then when I select the level with the new music my game gets stuck on black screen. There is nothing wrong with the midi nor the export as far as I can tell, the only thing I can think of as the cause is reopening a midi and re-exporting as smps without closing out of mid2smps. I will experiment further to see if this is it.

    EDIT: It doesn't have to do with opening or leaving the program open, it seemed to be an issue with the program not recognizing a midi instrument. I was using the wrong "synthbrass" apparently. Make sure the instrument you choose has an SMPS equivalent, everyone!

    Question: is it possible to install the midi driver without admin permissions? It just seems kinda odd because I've been able to get most other plug-ins for the DAW I use (Reaper by the way) without needing to give anything permissions like that.

    That's because those are VST plugins and are installed differently, usually by just dropping the files into your DAW's plugin folder and refreshing. The midi driver requires admin privileges to install because it does so via the registry. It's also worth pointing out that it's optimal to use the driver on an administrator account in the first place because from my experience, activating it in your DAW causes a crash if the program isn't running under an admin user, and choosing to run as admin every time can be a hassle as you'll end up having to manually navigate to your user account's directory (and all shortcuts set in file explorer will be absent, which would be especially crippling to me as I use these often due to a convoluted file system).
