    Okay, I know how to convert Mp3 to MIDI, but how do you convert MIDI to MP3's. I wanted to put the MIDI music files on a Music CD, but need to convert MIDI to MP3 first. Anyone have an idea?

    Hey, man!! Use a "Nero Burning Rom" software! Find it on any download-server. It can burn an audio cd with mp3, wave and MIDI - all you need!!

    Roxio's Easy CD/DVD Creator also lets you burn straight from MIDI to CD, I believe. For distribution elsewhere, I use a program called LP Recorder (it costs a few dollars but I got it free off a magazine CD). I can record from the MIDI synth to WAV and then just use a converter to MP3 or WMA.

    i was thinking maybe you could play the midi using winamp or something and using a program such as cooledit to record it in realtime to an mp3 file

    Well, that makes you one up on the rest of the world! I'd be careful making a bold statement like that.

    Easiest thing in the world. Play the midi through whatever soft/hardware you normally use and record the audio output. This will likely give you a .wav file which you can convert to MP3.

    the midi can sound very different, it depends on what synthez you use. you can use SF2 sound fonts to render your midiz more beutifull

    You can also use FL studio to play the midi out your USB to Optical converter to record into a CD recorder, then use Cool Edit Pro to "import from CD", then use any MP3 decoder such as Exact Audio Copy to convert to MP3.

    Mind your language. Nobody will be able to help you unless you present to us the actual error you have received.

    i use a freeware mp3 recording program, just play the midi and record.

    there is also a midi to mp3 plug-in but that would sometimes lock my computer up.

    midi to mp3

    Using a mini jack patch cord (it has a stereo male mini jack on each end), and assuming that you are playing the midi file with your computer, plug your soundcard output into your soundcard input. If you don't have one, make one using two headphone ends (disfunctional ones of course). Yes, plug the computer into itself! Make sure that your input is active (checkmarked) in control panel/multimedia/record icon, not the microphone. The soundcard's midi is being sent to the input as audio. You'll have to try it a few time to get the best level. Use whatever application you like to use to record that audio in real time. Then convert .wav to mp3 using whaterver utility you desire. I do it all the time. It works great.

    In my opinion, one should distingush two basic ways for converting MIDI to mp3:

    a) having the PC's sound card (or equivalent built-in setup) to create sounds from the MIDI score;

    b) using a PC program that includes it's software for sound sysnthesis.

    Using a) or b) depends wheteher you have a good sound card or not.

    Normally, I use a) because I have a Roland synthesizer card and it generally sounds better than standard cards and software synthesizers. However, an easy solution for case b) is using a program named Timidity that you may get form here:

    WAVmaker is the answer. I wanted to buy the software, but you cannot download it all (the whole CD) and I am in Europe... Another possibility is NI Kontakt...
