    All polyphonic does is take a sample of sound and match it as close as possible to a known note. It can't figure out which instruments are guitars, pianos, etc, or separate out the channels, or even distinguish between human voice and instrument. All automatic wav/mp3>midi programs will always be inherently crap, at least with the technology we're using at the moment. The best way to get a midi file? Sequence it.

    it's possible but not ver good, all the software that I've tried don't work too well, on things like pure piano pieces, the software picks up most of it but then you need to spend a couple hours cleaning up after it

    i think it always depends on how many instruments are playing at the same time to "scan" the file for the converting program.

    when you have a clear piano line with not much overdubbing it should be easy to recognize for the software.

    It's possible, but the quality is crap. Making the whole process useless for practical purposes.

    I've tried it on songs that were very simple in nature, and it worked "ok"... But you could probably do better making the song yourself in midi... since they're not that complicated. At the end of the day, I won't be able to buy a 'mp3 to .midi' maker

    I've seen a ton of those programs, none of which did anything but a pretty crappy job.
