How to convert MIDI to CDA?
CDA stands for CD Audio. It's not an audio format, but rather a format of
physical medium, so you can't get a program that converts MIDI to CDA. CDA is a
shortcut created by the operating system to provide an easy access to audio
Thus what you need is creating an Audio CD from your MIDI files. This
includes two different tasks: converting MIDI to WAV or some other suitable
audio format (MIDI is not an audio format either) and burning the resulting
files to an empty CD. You can burn MIDI files to a CD directly, but you won't be
able to play them on CD players and other devices later.
When converting MIDI to WAV, the two main things in question are quality and
speed. You can answer them both by using MIDI Converter Studio.
This program supports SoundFonts, which makes MIDI conversion quick and allows
to produce fantastic sound even on an average sound card.
Step 1: Download and install the program.
Download MIDI Converter Studio to a known
location. Run the downloaded setup package and follow on-screen instructions to
install the program.
Step 2: Start the program. Convert MIDI files.
Launch MIDI Converter Studio. On its toolbar, click the leftmost button:
This will invoke a usual "Open" dialog. Browse to the location where you MIDI
files are stored, select those that you want to convert to CDA, click "Open".
The files will be added to the conversion list. Now you can preview them by
selecting a file from the list and clicking "Play" on the toolbar.
In the "Output format" area (1), select WAV as the output format.
For our example, we choose to save converted file into the same folder where
our MIDI files are stored. You can do the same in the "Output folder" area (2),
or select any other folder on your computer.
Finally, click "Burn" (3).
The program starts converting MIDI to WAV. All buttons become disabled.
We could convert to any other format supported by MIDI Converter Studio, for
example, to MP3. However, as we need the files only to burn them to a CD,
there's no need to use other formats. Conversion to WAV is quicker, and WAV is a
lossless format, which is another advantage.
Once processed, files in the list change their status from "Not Processed" to
"Processed". Finally, MIDI Converter Studio shows a message telling that the
process is finished. Don't close the message window yet.
The trial version of MIDI Converter Studio converts only 60 seconds of each
file. If you are satisfied with the quality, you can register your copy and
remove all limitations.
Step 3: Download and install the burner application.
In order to burn files, you need a burner application, i.e. a program that
can burn CDs. MIDI Converter Studio cannot do that directly, but it offers a
very easy way of burning Audio CDs, if combined with another program called
Audio CD Burner Studio. This program is available as a full-featured demo. If
you don't have it on your computer, download and install Audio CD Burner Studio.
Step 4: Burn MIDI to Audio CD.
After installing Audio CD Burner Studio, switch back to MIDI Converter
Studio. It is still showing us the result message:
Click "OK" to close the window. Audio CD Burner Studio will be started
Its track list will be populated with the converted files. The program will
automatically detect your burning device and select it. So, in most cases it is
sufficient to insert an empty CD-R into your burner and click the "Burn" button
on the toolbar of Audio CD Burner Studio.
Please make sure that the total length of your CD doesn't exceed the capacity
of your CD-R. A typical CD-R can contain up to 80 minutes of music.
Optionally you can enter some information about your MIDI files, including
title, artist etc. This information will be written as CD-Text and can be shown
later by players that support the feature.
