Unfortunately, this is not possible since MIDI files are not music files at all. They are instructions to the midi synth in your computer to play certain tones. Because music files (.WAV, .MP3) were created manually, they may have tones (like vocals) that can't be synthesized. Also, even if the tones could be synthesized, like if your file was just a keyboard track, software won't know how to tell the midi synthesizer which tones you want it to reproduce. Your best bet would be to play it again, creating is as a MIDI file. You need special equipment to do this, but that's another question.

You could try looking for an online file converter, but converting in this direction does not exist.

Going the other way is possible, since that would take the instructions from the .MID file and instrument samples from a sample library and essentially "play" the file into another format such as .WAV.

Short answer is you cant. Think of an mp3 as a recorded act of music, and a midi as a piece of sheet music. The only way to convert would be to listen to the mp3, and create a midi from what you hear. There are things called pitchriders that can convert a simple sound like a single guitar string or a note from a clarinet into a midi note number, but these are simple waveforms. An mp3 recording of a song is a very complex waveform which would confuse a pitchrider.

Use your audio editor and choose Save As. You can convert audio files into other forms, but MIDI files cannot be converted to audio files.

You should be able to download a MIDI converter or use an online one. Most music writing software also has that ability.

Converting CD files to MIDI Files cannot be done. A CD file is an audio file, mixed to 2 track stereo and in a completely different format to the raw data file that is a MIDI File.However, if you have the legal right to do so. This means have rights to the copyright you can play the cd (assuming its content is audio) on a computer that has a audio software package on board which will save its recording in the format you want. However, it IS stressed. This is illegal if you are attempting to do this with pre-recorded music which you do not own or have copyright to.

Converting a mixed track from multiple instruments to midi is not possible----A midi is a specific type of file--a certain type of sound wave (i.e. one that sounds like a piano or trombone, for example) with a set pattern of notes. You make midis by using a sheet music software such as MuseScore or Notation Composer. It is also possible to convert midis to mp3 format. However, it is NOT possible to reverse theconversion. Once a midi is converted to mp3, it loses all data specific to midis that makes the filecompatibleas a midi. Therefore, it is a one-way process, and you cannot convert any type of file to midi (midi is the "full acronym" for .mid files, by the way) as far as I know.I hope that helps and is understandable! If not, think of it as burning something: you can burn a piece of paper, but you can't freeze ash back into paper. :)(Did I also mention I'm fifteen?)

Many MIDI files on the internet are free and legal to download. Theoretically, a MIDI version of a popular song could be called a "derivative work" and be considered a form of copyright infringement, but I doubt that anyone cares that much about MIDI files anymore.

This isn't as simple as it sounds.. as it's almost like asking how to turn an apple into an orange. MIDI files only contain performance information. Tempo, notes played, their velocity and duration other performance related data. Think of a MIDI file as a player piano's roll of paper with the holes in it. Useless by itself. What you need is a software application can can first open this file and then assign sounds to each of the 'tracks' of data. Sometimes this can be deceiving. As an example, if you open a MIDI file in Quicktime - you'll hear sounds. But that's **not** sounds from the MIDI file, but instead from an internal 'general MIDI soundset' triggered from that MIDI within quicktime. Quicktime pro might allow you to save this as an audio file - such as MP3, AIF and WAV formats.
