Writing MIDIs and exporting to mp3s
« on: November 27, 2006, 05:56:53 am »

> It's been over ten years since I quit my hobby of writing music in MIDI format, but ever since I got into writing simfiles for Stepmania, I began considering writing MIDIs of some songs I've had in my head for the past few years. I used Cakewalk Professional 2.0 to write my old songs, but that program was for Windows 3.1, and I'd like to use something more up to date for my future songs. Are there any good freeware / open source MIDI writing programs available for Windows 98? Also, what's the best freeware program for converting MIDIs into mp3s?

Reason, always

here's a sample of some reason work i have done:

Pytox

Iforgot to mention Reason only exports as .wavs but you can get goldwave which converts wavs to mp3s with such ease

Goldwave? Ease? Bah! CDex is better for converting stuff, to mp3 anyway.

If you just want to make MIDI files, then Anvil Studio is a good start if you're wanting freeware. (:

> Thanks for the tips, guys. I'll be trying out this Anvil Studio, as well as some of the other programs as soon as I get the chance to. I've got this song in my head that I'd like to transcribe into MIDI, and I'd like to eventually make it into a stepfile for Stepmania.
