The Supercharger has problems with the input being too loud
as well. If the cassette speed doesn't work for you, you should
try setting the output of the WAV player to about 75% and then
lower the Makewav volume setting until this speed works for you.

A too high volume would also explain why you need to have different
bit lengths for different games, since the Supercharger detects
zeros and ones by how long the input staya over a certain level.

The tracks on version 2 of the SganB CD were created with the
slowest speed on Makewav. So if the CD works for you, the WAVs
you created yourself with this program should work too.
