How does one go from “Hey, I am playing piano” to “Here is my mp3, load it onto your iPod”?
- Connect the DP to your computer using, for example, a MIDI to USB cable.
- Record using something like Red Dot Forever, which captures MIDI signals.
- Convert the resulting Midi file to an intermediate format, like WAV*, using something like SynthFont.
- Convert the WAV file to mp3 using something like WinLAME.
*- WAV would be a good format to use for creating CD’s. Of course you can record mp3’s to CD, but mp3’s are really more for archiving music. For CD purposes, the compression you get from the mp3 format isn’t needed, and results in some loss of depth and detail.
