Direct MIDI to MP3 Converter transforms the data in MIDI files into playable and recordable full-fledged audio files. This versatile tool can convert any MID, RMI, and KAR (karaoke) file not only into MP3, but also into WAV, Ogg, and WMA audio files. The program supports SoundFont 2 specifications, and allows you to add ID3 tags to the resulting MP3 files. Its clear and intuitive interface offers various other utilities, such as an MP3 splitter, an MP3 conversion tool, and an audio recorder with MP3 output. To access any of these tools, however, you will need to purchase a license.
As a MIDI to audio batch-converter, this simple utility offers you the possibility of selecting your favorite engine and to play with the tempo, reverb, transpose, and level settings. The program’s built-in MIDI player will allow you to find the right values for each MIDI file. You can also customize the output by selecting or deselecting any of the 15 MIDI channels provided, muting all or some of them, and by disabling the volume commands.
The conversion process itself couldn’t be easier to set up – it simply follows the standard source file plus output format selection common to most conversion tools. The program has a limited choice of output codecs, namely MP3, WAV, WMA, and Ogg. This limited availability of audio file formats is somehow compensated with the fact that the four formats supported are widely accepted by most third-party audio conversion tools.
Direct MIDI to MP3 Converter is simple and rewarding. It may not be the most comprehensive MIDI-to-audio conversion tool out there, but it offers much more than many other similar applications.
