how to make a midi

Postby cookiesnm1lk » Sat Dec 16, 2017 8:45 pm

So i downloaded "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" from here viewtopic.php?f=5&t=59721#Guitar_Hero_III_On-Disc
and i'm guessing there's some trick to getting a functioning midi out of the mess of files that came in the zip yes? I just got on this site and am SUPER clueless. help?

i'm not looking to use frets on fire. i'm looking to make a sheet music from a midi of this song. which i could do with a program like sibelius, HOWEVER, i need a midi that doesn't come out as a jumbled mess of random notes to do this.

This isn't going to work for your purpose, these MIDIs are not a representation of the song's real composition, they are 5 button representations. The only thing you could make use of here is the vocal track. Pro keys is already mostly real music representation, and pro guitar can be converted to real representation, but those features are not in the charts at the link you posted.

Try a google search for "free <song name> Midi download" You would be surprised how many results you get.. Or at a real push you could try a google search for " <song name> free sheet music" That again will yield hundreds if not thousands of results.
