Umm... I know this might be annoying, but do you guys know where to find a good, free, and virus free MIDI converter that converts MIDI to WAV, MP3, and OGG? Also, one that has features such as reverb and soundfonts? And I don't mind if it only converts to one of the certain filetypes. Please help me! :D I've looked everywhere!!! :x Any answers will be appreciated! :)

I know that either Sibelius or Finale has sound fonts and let you use them in MP3s. I'm pretty sure that it's Finale that does it but I haven't used either in a while, it might be Sibelius. Neither are free though but I think both have full featured trials available.

Finale: http://www.finalemusic.com/
Sibelius: http://www.sibelius.com/home/index_flash.html

I've always preferred Sibelius for notation, it's been a few years since I've really used either though.

EDIT: It's Finale: http://finalemusic.com/Finale/features/ ... ounds.aspx

Do you know one that's FREE? :| Also, I have used a trial one before, it solved everything, until it EXPIRED! :x And youconvertit.com doesn't convert MIDIs. Thanks though. :D

I doubt you'll be able to find anything free that comes with or even supports sound fonts. I'll ask a few friends of mine.

If I only knew how to program!!! GRRR!!! I'd put all of those money making idiots out of business by making a free converter better than their's.

Who charges money to convert a MIDI to an MP3? Sibelius and Finale are full music notation suites of software with tons of features, they don't just let you save MIDIs as MP3s.

Pistonsoft does. Direct MIDI to MP3 Converter. $30.00 Real easy to use. Soundfont Engine. Also allows Direct Recording. I don't have a credit card. Not worth spending 30 bucks either.

To convert MIDI to WAV/MP3 I use a recording software (not Sound Recorder because it has a limit of 60 seconds) and set the Microphone settings in Windows to record from Stereo Mix (what comes out of the speakers). It's recording it not converting it so it's probably not ideal, but it does work.

Well, that would work. I might try it out. All I would have to do is edit the saved recorded file and add reverb and stuff, thanks! :D

Hey, THANKS! It'll have to do for now, and I've been trying to get that Stereo Mix to work for ages, but I didn't know it was called Stereo Mix, or that it was disabled... :| Thanks! :) :D :) :D :P :wink:

You might try TuxGuitar. I think it can convert between MIDI and WAV.
