Hi,
Would it be possible to take the sound track from a Youtube video, convert it to midi, edit it and load the end result into a T4
I'm hoping Spike can sort this one out for me
Cheers
John

Hi John
The short answer is NO!
The Youtube sound tracks are audio, you cannot successfully convert audio to midi although there is software claiming this and it has a partial success rate provided it is one instrument . Midi is not music - midi is a set of electronic instructions which tell a sound generator which note to play , when to play it, when to stop it and which instrument to play it with plus a few more parameters.
What you can do is to record the soundtrack in audio, make a .wav file from it and load that into the T4 as an audio file and play along to it, you won't be able to edit it though - I believe you could also convert it to MP3 with Audacity and the T4 will play that too.
Does this help?
Cheers
Spike

Hi Spike,

Thanks for the very informative reply.
It is a shame that I cannot do what I would liked to have done, but at least you have given me other fields to investigate.
I do have a program called Band-In-A-Box and wonder if I can do something with this.
Oh well! Jump in feet first and see what happens
Thanks again mate....
John

Hi John,

Would it not be possible to get hold of a commercial midi of the song, as I suspect pretty much every song going has been midi'd now by someone?

That way, you could just load the midi and revoice as necessary.

Good luck!

Paul

Hey Guys!

Had a similar notion a while back about a great song I had on mp3. Tried a whole buncha "convert mp3 to midi" programs - a total waste of (my) good time.

Think I spent about 3 or 4 days on the project, before giving up completely.
Mr. JB - don't waste yer precious time an' brains on projects that CAN'T be done. Maybe sometime in the future some guy's gonna really bust his brains an' figure out how ta do that sorta thing - he oughta be an overnight millionaire.

MIDIs are the nearest ya can get, I believe - but knowing the name of many midis is a big problem. A lotta midisites no longer exist on the internet, as Yahoo shut down the Geocities sites in 2009, that hosted vast numbers of midisites.

Me, I'm lucky - some cat sent me a HUGE file with over 55K of the midis from many of the now deleted sites. Some real good stuff in that file, too - some real c**p, as well, heh heh!

Cheers

The Scooter

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the replies to my question....
Unfortunately the song I have in mind is not a commercially available one, so as far as I know it's not available as a midi.
I do have tons and tons of karaoke files, bought them at a boot sale, but have suspicion they may be pirate copies but the backing tracks are excellent.
I guess I will just have to experiment when I get my T4, but a six week delay in that as well.
Thanks again Paul and you too Scooter.
Regards,
John
