I don't know of any sample files. I've never tried it because the format seems
more complex than the original format.
Sorry I can't help on this one. Just two weeks ago I reread through that
part of the specs also while working on stuff related to the
"seek and phrase info chunk". And at the time I did a search
for sample files of the type you describe and came up empty.
If the ringtone sources were in a format other than midi that had
lots of relooped stuff, it would be great to try out this more compact form.
The reason I haven't is that midi is nothing like this format and most of
the ringtone sources are made in midi.
