Direct MIDI to MP3 Converter is a fast audio utility that allows you to convert MIDI files to MP3, WAV, WMA and OGG formats. Adjustable Tempo and Reverberation control. High quality SF2 sound-fonts are available for karaoke or midi rendering.
Pros: This converter utility lets MIDI files to be rendered(converted) to audio files. MIDI files are basically descriptions of notes and this converter creates the tunes from the descriptions. The formats that you can convert the MIDI files into are MP3, WAV, WMA and OGG. These rendering then can be recorded on to standard CDs and played on any players. This conversion is done without going through generating a sound recording first, as many converters do. The direct conversion improves the quality and quality of silence passages so that achieving CD quality is easy. Just dragging and dropping a file into the converter interface achieves the direct conversion into the digital audio format that you prefer. Skipping the intermediate step makes the process faster too. Musicians can use own SF2 sound-fonts for rendering and change the instruments quality. A kind of preview player let you listen to the MIDI file to help make sure the original quality is right. MIDI/MID/RMI or Karaoke files could be played through the player. The user interface let you select a list of files to be converted and then convert them in a batch. MP3/WAV collections then can be used to create a MP3 or a audio CD quite easily or a portable player. Using the Tempo change feature, you can create an album of your favorite MIDI or Karaoke MIDI compositions performed in any tempo. OGG/WMA/MP3 tag editor lets you set detailed information about the tracks being recorded.
Cons: No problems noticed.
Overall a nice set of functionality with a very simple interface this is good for a 4 star rating.
