ChrisJBrady Tech: midi to MP3 (22) RE: Tech: midi to MP3 06 Dec 12

Free Audacity should do it.

But you need to configure 'Stereo Mix' as well. Google search 'configure Stereo Mix' for instructions. With Win XP this is already done. With Win 7 you need to do it. Its quite simple.

Another way of converting a midi file is to set up two adjacent Audacity sessions. Set one to play the midi file. Set the other to record this using Stereo Mix. Play the midi file in the first session and record the sound in the second. Then 'Save As' the second recording in MP3 format - you'll need to download the free Lame add-on to save files MP3 format. Use at least 192kbps otherwise the recording will sound 'muddy.'

Hope this helps.
