It's impossible to convert them directly. The only real way to do it is by ear - construct a MIDI by listening to the different parts of the MP3 and tracking those yourself.

actually, I found a couple of programs that will do it, but they all are shareware with crappy quality and I wouldn't even want to think about reconstructing this piece. It's the Noir opening, and theres no way in hell I could do it by ear.

Get the DMC2 object at izzysoft so you can play MP3s instead...

Though I personally can't get it to work right.

I think the problem is that the song is about on par with the technicality of Bebop's Tank!. And the program is trying to render it with just one instrument. If anyone find the Noir opening song as a mid, let me know. The name of the song is
Copperia no Hitsugi.

I did have a program a while ago that tried to do it. It was all right for single instruments, but it couldn't just take an MP3 and convert the whole thing.

i have found a few before but they dont choose the instruments for the midi. even little background noises would probably become notes

This sounds impossible.

MP3's and midis entirely different from eachother in how they are made and rendered. Do what the other person said. Use DMC 2.

It IS possible with music which only has 1 instrument playing at once. A really good converter can handle 2 instruments at once but anymore than that and it won't work very well.

 
99 percent chance that the above post is 100 percent correct.

You should check out http://www.musicrobot.com/ Its a complete MIDI search engine for the net. You might be able to find it there.

You can always download All Converter (sorry, no link, but serch under google for that and wavs and mp3 and you'll find it) and turn it into wav sounding pretty much exactly the same, and then if you use multi samples and play it as an uninterruptable sample it'll work as backgroud music, no problems.

Unfortunately it'll be about 40MB (depending on the quality/length of the eventual WAV, of course).

I think you can set the quality, and the file ends up about the same size as the mp3. Otherwise, good luck.

does anyone here realize that mp3 is COMPRESSED audio? A wav file about a minute long ends up being ~10mb. That's FAR too large for music. I'll figure something out.

Obviously it's compressed audio, but I think Jimmy was saying that if the quality of the WAV is lowered enough after decompression you can get them to be the same size. Also obviously, the reduction in quality to achieve that will make it sound, in all likelihood, pretty terrible.

hell, maybe I will just use the DMC control. I'd hate to make my DL size that big though.
