Ok I'll go straight to the point as there isn't much to say on it but whenever I try to play a sound from the me ones the game freezes for a few seconds then plays the song.
This problem only happens when I play the song for the first time afterwards it plays just fine with no freezes.
When I play SE, BGM, BGS nothing like this happens.
Anyone know this problem?

I can guess that the file is a .midi.
This is a too-common problem with .midi files and Windows 7. Sadly there is no real fix for it except to convert your .midi's to .ogg, etc.

Ah that kinda sucks, oh well will convert them then.

On Windows XP I have the inverse problem.
MIDI files are played well, while .ogg have some lag time...
In a previous discussion, someone told me that RMXP has to fully load the .ogg before playing it...

After trying several converter as they were (And still are) reducing the quality of the midi sounds it worked fine with .ogg but will keep on searching for other converters as some of what I tried make them very bad.

Quality loss is indeed a problem if you want your midi to be converted into an other format.
Personally I have found a good solution for this, but it does requite quite a bit of work and some programms not everyone has. If you have a whole lot of files to convert it might not be a good idea. But I'll give you the suggestion anyway. Or a verry basic one at least.
Basically what you need is a programm that will allow you to record your system audio. That can either be a screen capturing programm or something like Audacity which records sound only. (I have found that the first category works better simply because you don't have to turn your volume to max like you would have to do with an audio-only recording tool.)
Hit record and play your midi. Once it's over stop the recording. And then you'll have to find the EXACT milisecons when the music starts an stops (at least if the midi loops). The recorded file can then be converted in basically any audio format of your liking without loosing any ot the quality really.

Thanks will try that out when I'm able to be in the room alone with no sound interference
