    Yes, its a very simple process. Play the MP3 then figure out each note of each instrument and either manually input that into a sequencer program or learn to play it using Midi capable equipment and record the midi. Its just that simple:hit:

    Welll.........

    It IS possible to use .WAV-Midi converters (must convert mp3s to wav first) but they are very inaccurate, and you would have to go in and edit the song a lot =(

    They all suck.

    You can use 'em only for MP3's with one instrument and no polyphonic tones.
    Or there is this piece of software that can do such a thing. (Read about it in some article) That garantees it can convert any MP3 into MIDI. Errorless! Only one bad; it costs $8000.

    MrSuperglue try and find that article, I would love to know if a perfect mp3 to midi conversion was possible, then maybe i'll do a quick eDonkey search and see if the price has fallen into my price range (read free to nearly free) hehehe

    Yeah, maybe you could explain this process in depth for us deficient midi folk. You mean you can actually split the tracks with a program and then record them in midi format for almost perfect results??? Please tell me more!

    Jobu, you make it sound easy to convert, but I am still confused about this process.

    Can I get a free WAV to Midi converter off the net? I im provise music on flute and record it as a Wav, it'd be a heck of a lot easier to use a WAV to MIDI converter (no matter how crappy it is) to renotate as music than to playback the WAV to myself thousands of times to notate the midi. I like any equipment that saves time :)
    And whats the $8000 program called? If its as good as it claims, I might research it and see if any of my connections have it.... I know a few people into that sort of thing thing that might be crazy enough to spend that much money on a program and of course, if I knew the name it'd be easier to ask and beg to let me use it :)

    the first post was the best advice. Listening to the song and learning it helps to be a better musician

    It may help you be a better musician, but sometimes you have a time crunch and need the quickest way (or easy way) out! Besides which, some songs are way to complex to notate without perfect pitch, and that's not too common. Even with *really* good relative pitch, some songs are near-impossible to notate as a midi and other methods are necessary

    I've looked everywhere and there's not one decent program. better learn how to actually make midi files from these songs cause if you do use the programs it's almost the same. edit edit edit
