Attached all of them, with dates same as STC files.
Only 18/1513 would not decompile, and 16 of them were due to too many pattern lines - SNG file max is 64 per pattern. Though STC player will cope with them OK.

I must admit I found Andy's ZX81 SoundTracker much easier to use than Spectrum original. Waiting for pointer movement and getting it exactly in right place was tedious, and put me off using it in the past. Andy's use of simple button navigation is quicker.
Just tried a few files in Vortex tracker (which seems a popular choice) set for Spectrum mode.
The same files played back on a Zeddy are at least 2 semitones lower in pitch which might explain why some of the tunes created on the Spectrum sound a bit crap on the 81 especially the more grunty bass end found in the turbo stuff.
Set Vortex for Zeddy mode and both Vortex and Zeddy sound same pitch wise.
I assume this is what you mean by tonally?
In which case anything that makes these files play at the original correct pitch would be most welcome though I have some doubts about how well the envelopes (buzzers as referred to by some) would transpose as they are a hit and miss affair pitch wise at the best of times.
Yes, Yes you did
I Have been a little un zeddy lately... but i guesss my mojo will return sometime
also DaveZX4th, on the converting STC to SNG, there are some of us that do both QL and ZX81 and I think posting our SuperBasic code (if you don't mind) would be useful.

I'll tidy my ZX81 STC/SNG programs so they don't require my QL set up. I've also done programs to list completely contents of STC & SNG files, which make it easier to peruse song and samples/ornaments.
Re ZX81 Tracker, I've only used it on EightyOne since (IIRC) it needs ZXpand for filing. My ZX81 is far from ZXpand'able so it would be interesting if it is possible to hook filing calls to elsewhere (Tape, UART etc).
