You were right. I replaced the string and horn samples. The MIDI had a lot of wrong notes in the harmony. I guess RareSPC isn't so good at exporting DKC2 tracks and Krook's March has a lot because it's a complicated track. I fixed most of them in the first pass but I just found more which are now fi...
