    midi conversion

    hi

    i was wondering, as audacity will not let me do it, if there is a program to change the midi files (from rosegarden) to other types of music formats eg .ogg .wav or .mp3. help will be most appreciated.

    A midi file is just a set of events, not music. You can play that file through an instrument, record it in something like Ardour and then export that as an .mp3 or whatever you want.

    Timidity is a software MIDI renderer, and it can play its output directly into an AIFF, FLAC or Ogg Vorbis file.

    Should be something like this:

    Code:
    timidity -Ow -o destination.wav source.mid
    I don't have any MIDI files at hand at the moment so I can't try this out for you. If you get stuck, Timidity has a man page.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
