Is there a way to easily convert midi files to wav files?
Hi M8 you can use a seq like cakewalk or cubase load up your midi file and create an audio track then route your midi through your sound card and record it on to your audio track you can also take the audio out of your sound card and feed it to the line in then use media player or other audio app to record it.
with virtual sound canvas you can just click and do it!
I've got Cakewalk HS2002 which is supposed to include Roland VSC but I cannot find it under Fx in an audio sound track. Do you know what I am supposed to do to get it installed properly? I have tried many times including Custom Installation but it WILL NOT install on my HD. Anybody with a suggestion please!!!!!
I used Vegas Audio to do this once, but I no longer have the program, t'was only a trial.
You can use a free program called ModPlug Tracker (http://www.modplug.com) and load up the midi file. You can then just save as a wav file or MP3.
Try Wingroove is excellent
Melody Assistant can export a midi file to wav.
Try Tommy Anderberg's WavMaker - you should be able to get a copy of this fully functional shareware prog from www.simtel.net.
Alternatively, a prog called Wingroove (virtual soundcanvas prog) does a rather nice job of converting midi to wav.
Both of these progs use internal soundbanks, so the conversion is done without any need for recording via your soundcard.
I use a program called MidiSyn - it's very simple and you can select the soundfont that it uses to create the wave file. It only converts to .wav (no MP3).
Just adding one more proggie that will sample midi to wav. Audio Compositor, Like MidiSyn it also accepts Soundfonts as a patch source.
Refer to my reply on the topic "Can midis be converted" on this board.
There are more than one alternative.
I use the virtual Soundcanvas also
Virtual Soundcanvas is the way to go.
alternatively-as i found out yesterday, if you have windows wp with moviemaker, you can record the midi into the audio section and it will convert into a file that you can burn on to cd.
If you own a soundcard in the soundblaster range you can record midi by using the record option "What u hear".
I suggest also Melody Assitant, or the pro-version Harmony Assitant. (www.myriad-online.com).
It have a build-in soundbase, so you get a wonderful sound with EVERY soundcard.
I got very good results with it, and it can not only make wavs out of midis, also mp3s.
Yes, use Logic or Sonar, Pro Tools or any good Sequencing program that has its own VST and sample libraries. Assign instruments to the MIDI File channels then render as WAV, MP3 or many other audio formats.
