Jeremy --

A similar question was asked here on 12/29 so refer to that as well.

There are a lot of alternatives to make audio cd's from midi files depending upon what you own, can afford to buy, or can get access to via friends etc.

The basic process, however, is more or less the same: You record the audio produced by your midi files when played through your QS? synth. This recording then needs to get converted to an appropriate file format that can be burned onto a cd.

I generally use Cakewalk ProAudio 9 to record the audio produced by my midi sequences onto my computer hard-drive (PC), taking advantage also of the digital output from my QSR to record either a stereo mix from the QSR, or to record individual audio tracks in several passes which I then re-mix to get the final product that is burned to a cd. Generally this is also mixed with other audio tracks recorded using Cakewalk as well.

All these resulting audio tracks then get mixed to a stereo *.wav file, which I then further process and burn to a cd with Steinberg's WaveLab 3.

If you're new to this, and you have a decent PC with a CD burner, then you basically need a soundcard that let's you record into the computer, and some software that let's you record it in a *.wav format. If you do have a decent computer, then you've probably also have a basic soundcard on it that will at least let you record a stereo audio file through analog inputs using some relatively inexpensive software like Cakewalk's Pyro to make simple recordings, create playlists, and burn them to cd.

Feel free to send an email if you need some more help or info.


: I am kind of new to the electronic side of music, and I have some MIDI files I want to burn to CD. If anyone has any experience in this area, please let me know what equipment you used and how you did it. Thanks!
