Midi Piano Teacher
One of the best ways to develop rhythm is to play along with someone (or something) - preferably an experience musician, but a recording will do. I use audio clips for the students to play along with, or to hear how it's "supposed" to be played. Until a few years ago using MIDI was fine and I could put files on disk for students or email them. With MP3 becoming more commonplace, some computers do not have the capacity to handle a MIDI file. In addition, converting to MP3 allows my students to play these sample/accompaniment files through their Ipods or whatever device they want, whereas MIDI is mostly obsolete and can only be played (maybe?) through the PC. Still, it is convenient to create songs in Finale and then convert them to MIDI since I can change the tempo, key or instrumentation without redoing the whole song. This is especially true since I have the music notated already as part of my books of arrangements that I make available to my students.
The Direct MIDI to MP3 Converter software is easy to use, and the MP3 files it outputs sound quite good. In fact, the MP3s seem to sound BETTER than the original MIDI files. The feature "save to same directory as original" is very convenient. Also very useful and convenient is the converter's ability to transpose (change key) from the original MIDI file, and to change the tempo. These are exactly the kinds of modifications I make all the time to suit individual students. I am very thankful that the program does this. You can also bump up the volume, which I like because Finale's MIDI file output tends to come out with far too low or a recording level.
Another interesting use for the converter is taking MIDI files acquired off the internet, particularly classical selections, and converting them so they can be shared more easily, or even played on external devices. I am pleased to have found this product. The controls are easy to use, and I intend to upgrade to the full registered copy soon.
