    Despite what some people might tell you, there is no software for converting polyphonic .wav files to midi - it's an impossible task.

    You can just about get away with a monophonic file, but that's it!

    well, you have to find out which software is the best for YOU ...the software is just a tool, like a hammer for the mechanics.... ;)

    the important thing is that you have knowledge of music and what you want to do.

    there is no one-click-finished-software...or no good one

    There are no wav to midi converters that can do it justice. Use a midi program like cakewalk or cubase or anvilstudio to make the midis then convert to mp3 or wav. A little knowledge of music is useful as well in order to get the best out of the software.

    totally agree with the above. In midi different instruments go to different tracks where the notes are events that trigger the appropriate instrument. No software is able to identify and group the different voices from a single WAV file to give you a multi-track midi.

    Nobody is disputing that there are softwares around which claim to be able to do this but, as you have found out for yourself, they don't actually work - certainly not for polyphonic source files.

    Once again, there is evidence of a complete lack of understanding of midi - and this is supposed to be a midi forum!

    When will you guys get the message that one uses midi to make music, not music to make midi's?

    the software works by detecting the note's pitches, like a software chromatic tuner and then writes the midi file according to this

    We know how it works. The point is, it cannot be made to work for polyphonic music. Even if it could be done, it could hardly be called 'sequencing'.

    It's just another "God I want this to be no real work at all" thread. Let's face it, wave to midi, mp3 to midi or whatever has never worked to anyone's satisfaction because if it did, everyone would have midifiles that rocked. For all out there, please listen. JUST LEARN TO SEQUENCE OR HAVE SOMEONE SHOW YOU THE TRICKS OF THE TRADE.

    It's just like learning any instrument. The more you put into it, the more you'll get out of it.;)
