    Hi

    Just looked at Tavenger5's post on Intelliscore.

    Is anyone using this, or any other, software? Could you give comments?

    Does any software "identify" what voices the notes are coming from in the conversion, or do you have to go through and set them to channels manually? Because this would take ages, surely?

    Thanks in advance
    Cheers, Ben

    I have tried several so-called MP3 to MIDI programs, and none of them produced even marginally acceptable results.

    lets have a look

    Could anyone email me, or a post, a midi of a well-known song that has been converted? I would like to see what you get...

    Thanks alot!

    me personally i don't see how midi files created from wav files could ever have acceptable results........i KNEW it had to be too good to be true.......what kind of wav files do people try to convert anyway? Educate me.

    Best results are received when the WAV is monophonic, like a saxophone. It still sounds crappy, though.

    >the WAV is monophonic

    True, it can be done polyphonically if the tempo of the song, which is as usual, is much less than the sampling rate you convert at. In which case you can seperate the notes played in the chord depending on the superposition, and also on the types of instruments used in the mp3 since different instruments exhibit different harmonic responses.

    Stuff and nonsense!!

    You need to read up some basic audio physics theory.

    It is impossible to convert a polyphonic file to midi (and why would anyone want to , anyway?).

    I've tried a few WIDI, Intelliscore, Digital Ear.....whilst INtelliscore seems to be the best they seem to all still be crap.

    I have tried it and it does work with single melody lines. Like if you sing "La la la la" it will convert it but it won't seperate different instruments
