Converting audio to MIDI Posted on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013 at 9:04 am. PTWritten by Jim Dalrymple It’s been years since I’ve used Ableton’s Live, but this looks like a really great feature to have at your disposal. silversonic I wonder if this could help me arrange more music for my pep band by converting audio to midi then importing that midi into Finale. That would be a huge time saver to the way I arrange music now (put the audio into slow mo and painstakingly transcribe everything) Nikolozi Audio to MIDI converter in Ableton is pretty basic. Don’t get me wrong I love that feature. It’s good for clean drum loops and melodies. But you won’t be able to convert the whole songs to MIDI. You’ll be better off with Celemony Melodyne.
