vgm to midi?

Post by darkcircles » Mon Apr 05, 2004 9:26 am

Tom Seddon's Model B emu allows you to record the sound output...i haven't used it myself so you'll have to give it a go (details from the readme file below). If that is successful you'll need to find a way to convert .vgm to midi sound - i have no idea if this is possible! perhaps someone with audio knowledge could step in here. <br>
<br>
SPECIAL MENU<br>
<br>
Start recording sound<br>
Stop recording sound...<br>
<br>
Starts and stops the recording of sound data. Starting recording<br>
sound will clear the recording buffer and start recording. Stopping<br>
recording will bring up a file selector allowing you to select the<br>
file to save the data to.<br>
<br>
The sound data is saved as a .VGM file. This may be played in Winamp<br>
with a suitable plugin.

vgm to midi cont'd

Ta pops - but I think thats going to be difficult - I understand MIDI files are purely data type format so there isn't a straightforward method of 'conversion' - the files have to be 'created'? or am I way off base? lol

converting the mp3 file to a midi file - the results were . . .well . . . not good! Ranging from Amusical gibberish to barely-but-not-quite-acceptable (steel drums came closest)<br>
<br>
oh well

One of the best wee tunes ever to hit a game - I fancy it on my 'phone, which can only do MIDI files

Hmmm. I created a few VGMs when Model B started supporting sound logging last June. Perhaps I should upload them ... any interest?<br>
<br>
I did try converting them to midi too, but from what I can remember, they were awful!!

Hiya<br>
The music to Sabre Wulf is just Bach's prelude transposed into A major, I think? No doubt it's available in MIDI file format somewhere on the web.<br>
