The easy way: get a MIDI player that can export to WAV files (WinAmp should let you do it), then convert these WAV files to MP3.

Lets go over some basic theory. MIDI isn''t audio, MP3 IS audio. Slight difference there.

However, when you play a midi file, the midi device in your computer plays the desired instrument from it''s sound bank, which is audio.

So what you have to do, is record the audio that is outputted from your midi device when it plays such a file. D/L an audio utility, like Audicity, and follow the setup instructions, then record your midi into a .wav file. From there, compress it to MP3 either with the same program (where available) or with iTunes or something, theres alot of free converters out there.

Can you guys post converters? Im looking for somenow. WinAmp only converts MIDIS intos RII or something like that.

You can also use winamp with the disk writer plugin to write out a pcm wav file, then convert that file to mp3.

Are you sure it wasn''t RMI? RMI is an internet MIDI format.

Anyway, there is no direct way of converting MIDI to MP3. MIDI is an abbreviation for Musical Instrument(s) Digital Interface, meaning it''s an interface that plays back music using the different instrument presets loaded into the Sound Canvas on your computer or whatever the program that is playing it tells it to use.

MP3 is a compressed form of WAV which basically got it''s name because when you record something you record the wave patterns made by the source and play back those Wave patterns. MIDI has no wave patterns because an actual MIDI file is merely a file that tells your computer to play this note at this given time using this instrument for the given length of the note.


Now, there are programs like Timidity that "kind of" convert the MIDI to MP3/WAV, but they aren''t actually converting per say. They are actually making a silent recording of the MIDI using the soundfonts/samples you load into Timidity to create a WAV file. Timidity is about the same as importing a MIDI into ModPlug and adding samples to it, then using that to convert to WAV.


http://www.modplug.com/

You can record MIDI using that after loading samples, but unless you know what you are doing, the MIDI will turn to shit after importing it.

Peace,
Zack

Timidity is probably your best bet.

Think of it this way, the MIDI file is like sheet music, it dosn''t actualy have a "sound" associated with it.

All these options will slap some samples onto your MIDI file (which is basicly giving each note a sound).

The WinAmp option is basicly asking your sound card to give each note from its internal sound bank (or synth, if it''s a crap sound card), just the way it would if you played it back, and then just recording the outgoing audio.

Timidity, IIRC, will just give the MIDI notes a sound in the same way your sound card would, but dosn''t go through your sound card. If the WinAmp method introduces noise, or you''ve got a crap sound card, use this method.

ModPlug will give you more control, but is harder to use and you''ll probably have to go sample hunting. If you have a SBLive card or other SoundFont card (or a sound font bank sitting around for some reason), you can use these samples (they are the same ones your sound card uses, and are generaly pretty good).

If you know what you are doing, the ModPlug option will give you a much better sound than Timidity or WinAmp would, but if you don''t, I''d stay away unless you have a lot of time to spend fiddling and learning.

ModPlug also has the advantage of being able to output MOD files, that are likely to be even smaller than the MP3 (because the MOD format is like MIDI, but the file also contains the relevent sonuds to play).

And then there are a whole lot of comercial programs that can do what ModPlug can do (import midi and give it pretty sounds) with ultra-high quality (eg: I use Reason). These, however, cost a small fortune, and I wouldn''t recomend getting them until you are skilled with the ModPlug method.

You can convert any ''sound'' into a wave or mp3. I did do a tutorial on this (Audio Ripping) but my site is down at the moment. Basically, you change your Audio Properties to record what is being played and then actually record it with a program like Goldwave or Cool Edit.

Pass me your email address and I''ll send it over if you would like.

Everyone disregarde any of thos other converters. Go to Itunes and Download Itunes. Its Number 1 . Convert to wav then conver wav in to MP3. I think you can do MIDI into MP3. It took like 1:00 to do it. And it works great!

Info :

Awave Studio can read almost any imaginable audio or instrument file format - over 240 of them in fact! And it can also write to some 120 of them! No other software even comes close to this!
