    I think the program is called transistorMIDI, or zingMIDI or something to that effect. It wasn't helpful at all. It would be more beneficial to simply get the MIDI, and not bother with converting it yourself. You end up with a large pile of seemingly randomly sequenced notes.

    And there is about a whole page of junk posts here, is the mod going to come clear them away soon?

    i've tryed a program like this, too, but it's the biggest shit in the world. if you try to convert any sung thing, that, what comes out, is just some garbage.

    Of course you can convert MIDI to mp3...is like in a recording studio...you can record all the instruments in one song...but you can't extract each instrument from a song....

    It isn't possible, I've spent many late nights trying to find out how to do this. all I get is scratchy noises.

    There is still a chance...if you have a song with only a few instruments...maybe just drums and somathing like piano...

    Just drums would actually produce by far the most undesirable results. The piano on its own would stink too, but by far not as much.

    Oh dearie me - just look at the date of the original post guys. This one has been thrashed to death since then!

    However, just to say it once again.... you can convert a audio recording of a single monophonic instrument to midi (with a bit of lick and a following wind) but a polyphonic instrument or an ensemble of monophonic ones is a non-starter.

    Midi makes music, not vice versa.

    there is no way to convert mp3 to midi. midi is computerized frequencys that play when its programmed to. mp3s are true sound waves. their is no way.

    I have tried many programs and so far the only way it can be successful is if there is only one instrument playing

    i've tried many mp3 to midi programs. they are right. all you are going to get are scratchy noises. but you can get some of the notes and manually create your midi. but it is really a hard job. actually, the only problem with the mp3 is the voice. if the mp3 plays only the notes then the program would easily convert the song to midi. :)

    He's talking about many of them, from what I figure. Try Digital Ear for starters. They claim to be the very best converter available, and sadly I agree with them.
