    Give me a program that can to a song off the radio and split up the notes,
    chords, intruments, effects, drums , etc...............

    If the end results need more effort to "fix" than to sequence from scratch
    then why bother!!!!.......

    Just for fun, look at some of those sample converted MID files
    using the score view and event view of your MIDI editor. Some
    folks have mentioned the amount of editing you have to do to make
    the converted results usable, but few mention that many of them
    are essentially uneditable. And I think it's more than fair to
    call a few dozen notes plus a few thousand pitch wheel events
    uneditable. In fact I think it's charitable.

    Lots of WAV-to-MID software sites listed in the FAQ at the URL in
    my sig. Some are worse than others, and none are good.
