How to convert MIDI to WAV?

Last updated on June 19, 2017 by , Posted to midi

What is WAV? A Wave file is an audio file format, created by Microsoft, that has become a standard PC audio file format for everything from system and game sounds to CD-quality audio. A Wave file is identified by a file name extension of WAV (.wav). The only real drawback to the WAV file format is the file size associated with it. The average song has a large file size from 35 and 50 megabytes, which is significantly larger than the average MP3 file size.

MIDI is the complete opposite of WAV, it's very small, because it only contains a musical notation that the synthesizer turns into the sound. However, this method of conversion has a big drawback - it works in real time. Therefore, we have developed a high-speed converter, which allows you to convert at a speed of 100 times higher than real time.
