    Its possible, but isnt trying worth, believe me. you can better try to play it down bij yourself, if you have a piano. The easiest way is to do it with a midi keyboard and a sequencer like cubase. In the begin it need a lot of time. But you'll learn fast, and do it quicker.

    There are software who can do it, and perhaps they give you a base to begin. If you want to try it, and you've got a song you want to convert; try celemony melodyne to divide divert instruments from the audio file. This program is works well.

    Example: you want a piano sound from a song in midi:
    Celemony take's the piano, the strings and the drum (all the intruments you want) from each other so you can cut the piano from the song and save it. Now you can convert the piano to midi. This is the best way to do it... You only have to find a program to convert, buts that's not so tough try www.google.com

    Melodyne does a great job if you have a clear single instrumental WAV to work with.

    unless its only one instrument in the file (and even then, the result is pretty crap), its not worth trying. It converts evey instrument into one (ie, drums, bass, guitars etc into one).

    Creative Labs

    Creative Labs has a free utility that you get when you buy one of their sounds cards called wavtomid.exe and it works pretty well, however I think it only creates single channel output?

    You can't convert a WAV file to MIDI.
    You can convert a MIDI File to WAV.
