it possible to do 3*16*96 , but it is less accurate :

you can look for freq1 like minimize ( f(vol1,freq1,time, phase1) - sample(time) ) ^2 that gives f1, then
minimize ( f(vol2,freq2,time, phase2) - sample(time)-f1(time) ) ^2 then the same for f3.

you can even do a little optimization like assuming freq3>freq2>freq1 so the frequency is searched not
on 96 possibilities but on 96 for f1 and (96-f1) for f2 and (96-f2) for f3.

guess what .... i have ! .. i never imagined u could propose a variant that quick ! thanks !

after some trials , it seems to converge always to minimal volume as if all other solutions were worse , i tried adding phase and dealing only with freq1 and 2 to make it lighter , but still converges to minmial volume and frequency is really meaning less since it is converges for f1 and f2 to the same freq.

i realize also we dont control the relative phase of the 3 voices, i guess they are in phase since they must be produced by the same counter mechnism inside psg , but we still have a 180degree uncertainty.

Urg! Melody is the same of that played by a child pressing random keys at random duration in a piano. :(:(:(:(;)

guess what .... i have taken the 2 more hearable song of my stac of trials ....

they sound very nice actually
what is the matlab code you used for getting them?

Thanks for the feedback , i am not very musician ( that is why i am searching a programa that do it for me )
so i may find ok something that is ugly for everyone else !!!
...
I have used the code i posted in first place .
What i do to improve : is to select a very clean source , i go to youtube and i search for any song with flute or ocarina or pan flute or other simple melody . Then i try to "clean it" with low pass filter and high pass filter , usually i try to use only the 150Hz-3khz band since all what is above 3khz is more or less cymbals and all what is below 150Hz are very loud bass which tends to asphixiate the main theme , at least this what happens with my prog .
I also tweak the variable that integrates the melody and also the parameter that defines the the size of each audio segment to analyse . Usually i try to use only 5 notes per seconds and compare it to 10 notes per seconds, using only 5 notes per sec makes smaller data in rom .
Also 5 or 10 notes per seonds cn be easily replayed in ether 50Hz or 60z games.
For integration a 1/3 vs 2/3 ratio is good in general sometimes for fast changing musics 1/4 vs 3/4 is better .
...
@pingpong : i have a better one : sounds like a monkey going down the stairs !
Just kidding ... in fact what also males them sounds unnatural is that the beat is
somehow fixed to 5/sec , as i was just explaining.

Here is the code for the roms with replayer , in fact very basic :

I liked that WIND song. That is nice enough to be added into some game! Surely gives strange atmosphere! And that was a praise for your song conversion.

Shame that my Rock-A-Billies were too raw to your converter.... hhmmmm... that must mean that Rock-A-Billy is too raw thing to be played on MSX!! Shame indeed......

But I still would like to hear how strange and horrible my tracks sounded, Leo. I don´t care if they are "unhearable".
