Hey,

As per title, can you convert an mp3 file into a MIDI file, and if so, how do you do it!!!

Does anyone have any recommended (free) programs they have used? Ive just downloaded one with a nice virus attached...grrr.

Hmm...It can be done.

But it takes a very special bit of software.

It's the equivalent of trying to get a program to convert an mp3 into sheet music, because that's all a midi file is - a set of text instructions.

You're probably going to have to pay for it.

You've hit the nail on the head. I want it so I can write sheet music...

I've found some software from widisoft.com that I'm having a play with the trial with.

Reet.

Freeware galore.

mp3 to WAVE just keeps crashing

You're trying to convert a WMA, not an MP3 aren't you.

It was an mp3, but the program didnt get anywhere near that stage. Anyway, got another program for that bit and I'm onto the WAVE to MIDI bit. Cept the MIDI file aint the best, and has alot of rubbish in it...

That's the trouble.

It isn't smart enough to know what is voice (for example) and what is an instrument.

Try turning the Spectrum Analysis on, and change the program number to Bright Accoustic Piano.

You can also try turning the minimum note length down a bit if that doesn't help.

Another MP3/WMA to WAV converter if you need it: ]Here

Time for a play "tomorrow" I think - lappy battery about to die!

Thanks for your help, the sheet music converter site is going to be a great help in the future...

Those MIDI conversion things are rubbish, what song is it that you are trying to score out?

Just download the FL Studio 8 Demo limited trial with no end date. Fl Studio 8 allows you to import music may it be mp3, wma, wav to Midi.

I use this software to make music!:thumbsup:
