MIDI to MP3 converter with ID3 tags support
MIDI stands for Musical Instruments Digital Interface, but most people
associate MIDI with small files that produce more or less artificially sounding
music. MIDI files are supported even by such popular devices as mobile phones.
Because of their size, they are also available in great numbers on the internet.
However, MIDI files tend to be underestimated by the majority of people. For
one thing, MIDIs don't sound natural. On the other hand, most players and other
multimedia devices don't support them at all.
These two shortcomings are easy to explain. MIDI files are meant for
professional musicians, in the first place. And they require professional
synthesizers in order to sound naturally. It is hardly a good idea to build expensive
synthesizers into general-purpose multimedia devices, automatically increasing
the cost of the latter several times. And there's little value in cheap
synthesizers, like those in mobile phones.
But still MIDI files attract attention of musicians, of people who plays
music either professionally or for entertainment, of those who love karaoke etc.
And the both problems of MIDI files can be cured by converting MIDI to MP3 or to
another wide-supported audio format. Modern sound cards usually have quite good
built-in synthesizers, but a MIDI to MP3 converter can do even better than that
by using a quality SoundFont file.
If you convert MIDI to MP3 for some portable player or other device, you may
be interested in filling out the ID3 tag information: artist, album, year, and
other details about the song. This can be done by a MIDI to MP3 converter with ID3 tag support, like
MIDI Converter Studio.
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 it.
Step 2: Start the program. Select MIDI files to convert to MP3.
Launch the MIDI converter. The main window will be shown:
Click the leftmost "Add Files" button on the toolbar to get a usual "Open"
Browse to the folder where you keep your MIDI files, select those that you
want to convert to MP3, click "Open".
Alternatively you can open the folder in Windows Explorer and drag and drop
MIDI files into the main window if MIDI Converter Studio. Other file managers
that support Drag&Drop can also be used.
Step 3: Fill out ID3 tags. Convert MIDI to MP3.
The files will be shown in the large white area of the program, the
conversion list. You can preview the files by selecting them one by one from the
list and clicking "Play" on the toolbar. To stop playing, click "Stop".
In the output format area (1), choose MP3 as the output format. You can
adjust the format settings by clicking "Setup" in the same area. MIDI Converter
Studio supports the whole range of MP3 bit rates and sample rates.
In the output folder area (2), specify a folder where converted files should
be saved. There is an option to use the input folder, i.e. the folder where MIDI
files are stored. If you add MIDI files from different folders and use this
option, converted MP3 files will be sorted correspondingly.
In the ID3 tags area (3), fill out necessary fields. Note that the tags will
be written to all converted files, so you should fill out only those fields that
are common to all files in the list. If some files shouldn't have the tags, you
can remove them from the list and convert them to MP3 later.
Finally, click the big "Convert" button in the right lower corner of the
program (4) to start converting MIDI to MP3.
Instructions on how to load different SoundFonts you can find in the help.
The trial version of MIDI Converter Studio converts only 60 seconds of a
file. If you are satisfied with the quality and features, you can register your
copy and remove all limitations.
