    there are very many midi programs out there to work with. I suggest going to www.downloads.com and searching for "midi". I know this will help you.

    You need a midi editing proggy.

    If you get Logic Audio(cough**Kazaa**cough)
    I can walk you through it step by step.

    so you people actually sit down and compose midi's for popular songs or do they have some program, cause everything i have seen out there isnt that good at converting wav to midi

    converting is really not the best way... better start from scratch...
    sure it`s much more work but it`s sound better then (if you can make it...)

    Personally, I go the notation software route, and use Noteworthy Composer and export the native nwc files to midi files. It's friendly, easy software, but it is notation software, so you'll need to know how to write out notes. If you don't, though, you could always use it to learn.

    Similarly, you could try Finale, but it's quite a bit more complicated. It's also quite a bit more powerful, though.

    Personally, I have both, but mainly use Noteworthy for actually composing and Finale for printing.

    So I'd recommend Noteworthy if you'd rather notate than play the music in. :)
