    Good Program For Midis

    As a guitar Player I prefer using Cakewalk Guitar Studio 1.02 but you can use Cubase Vst or any of the Steinberg Cubase programs :thumbsup:

    An excellent freeware solution is the popular Anvil Studio.

    Anvil Studio is by far the best freeware for making midis.

    there's many programs out there that makes midis from any type of file.. mps.. wavs.. zips.. some free some not. I can't give you any program names since I want midi to mp3 programs for my uses.

    Nomad - FruityLoops will only export midi if you're using midi tracks in your song. More often then not you're just using wav files and looping them, and wav's cant become midi's that simply.

    Twilight - Yes, but converting an mp3/wav into a midi will probably give you one hell of a distorted midi.


    I suggest Cakewalk Pro Audio for making midis. I guess the newer version of that would be called "SONAR" but that includes wav/mp3 support as well, so it's a bit more like FruityLoops.

    Cubase 3.7 or 5 VST or Cakewalk are all good for making midis. Must have a look at this anvil studio one, sounds good judging by the listing of it on these boards.

    Finale (www.codamusic.com) might work for you if you want to input from a midi keyboard...

    Fruity loops studio is a great tool for making music files... but not too good for midi indeed :( unless your recording it from keyboard... the big advantage is the 'sequencer' idea: just record some sequences and build your own melodie by pasting the sequences.
    Exporting to MP3 works good, to midi only if you only use midi controls (which is not very easy to do
    :rolleyes: )

    This thread really helps, but about this anvil studio, is it all that good? My 56k (26.4 connection thanks to Qwest) is slowly downloading right now.

    Cakewalk is a very professional program and updated continuously.

    You may also want to look at PG Powertracks.

    Fruity Loops and Cubase

    Cubase is very good I must say, I created my GCSE composition on it and that's the reason I didn't fail.

    Whenever I try to export midi however it refuses to work.

    That thing about wav's on fruity loops certainly cleared a few things up for me, but I really want some of those samples as ringtones!!!

    I downloaded Anvil Studio. All I want to do is increase the volume on midi's I already have so that I can hear them on my phone at a volume that is louder (than they are now!) .... I've poked around in this prgram and have turned up all the Volume things I can find .... in the options choice I've been sure to check the "all volumes from 0-127" checkbox ... I still can't really figure out how to make a midi louder .... does it go any louder than 127? And how do I get it to that? I also downloaded a PSM program, but that also goes to 127 only (but I did figure out how to shorten a track w/this program, which was useful!) Thanks for any help you can offer!

    Many MIDI files have volume commands for each and every note. This can not be drastically changed with the master volume control.
