    Audio to MIDI conversion, which includes mp3 to MIDI, is effectively
    limited to music which uses only one instrument, a strongly tonal
    instrument (no percussion -- drums etc.), and ideally only one note
    playing at a time. Pitch recognition at best only gets the right
    notes. It won't recognize the instrument, nor make a proper
    arrangement.

    Check out the alt.music.midi FAQ,
    http://home.sc.rr.com/cosmogony/ammfaq.html

    It has links and info about audio to MIDI recognition applications.

    If you want to convert a typical pop tune with a mix of instruments,
    percussion, vocals, and effects, you're out of luck. You'll need real
    musicians to do that job.

    Keep in mind that a MIDI file is effectively a new cover arrangement
    and performance of a song, not just another way to record the audio.

    Some of these wav to midi convertors also require you to slow down the song.

    To do this with pre-recorded music, there is a tool that you get when you buy
    band in a box from www.pgmusic.com that does a good job, and does not shift the
    pitch.
