    I just registered yesterday and can't seem to find the right tools/methods to convert a midi file into an mp3, wav or cda file. Sorry if I sound ignorant...never thought about looking into midis until now. Isn't learning a beautiful thing?!

    You need to find a program that allows you to record Midi and Audio tracks... for example PT8 By PG music will allow you to send your sound card to an audio track... then with a press of a button converts that audio track to an mp3.

    With the power of SoundFont-compatible SynthFont created by Kenneth Rundt, one is capable of rendering MIDI to WAV with an outstanding high quality result. Look into http://www.synthfont.com/ for this freeware tool.

    So you don't have to pay for that stuff?

    Yeah Zandro's right, but I won't go babbling on about all the freeware/unlimited evaluation shareware programs I have...

    These WAV's are they copatible with Flash? And how big does it make em? Like Filesize compared to the MIDI...

    edit: Yeah I tried listening to his, just my comp goes screwy when using .wma files - I think they're the ones I'm meant to be listening to...
    Also; WAV files work on CD's right? If not, anyone got a link to a WAV/MP3 - CDA thingy?

    Macromedia Flash?

    Yes, WAV files do work as CDA.

    If use a modern

    Soundcard like Soundblaster Live! you can record your midi-sound with tools like soundforge or cooledit (over the function "record what you hear"). Often you can activate this option over the loudspeaker settings in the tray (win2k, winxp).

    you can record the midi in a recorder (DAT/mini disc/tape) then record it back to your pc as a .wav file... then burn it to a cd. i've done this several times. minidisc or DAT doesn't alter the quality of your midi the way it sounds from your soundcard or soundmodule.

    ...So your sound card does not use loopback? Even my Crystal SoundFusion FM chip built in 1993 fused to the motherboard supports loopback.
