I've started messing around with the MIDI on my computer and I finally have it so that there's no dither in the time signatures, which means that I can write complete songs with it. But my problem is that I can't convert from MIDI to a more widely accepted audio file, and whenever I play it in another program that program has a different MIDI protocol so it sounds different.

Do any of you know how to convert a MIDI based file into an mp3?

From what I know, PrintMusic (a notation program) can import midi and output wav, I think that's at least some sort of improvement. And I seem to remember iTunes being able to convert midi to other formats, but can't think of what these formats are.

Au contraire - I tried to use that one a while back and half the song was missing.

Did you follow the instructions?

Please right-click (save target as..) to save the file on your computer.
I tested it out before posting the link. The entire 2 minute of the midi I used was intact when it finished downloading so it works for me. I noticed if you just single left click on the link, only part of it gets downloaded. Save target as works though. Try it again grasshopper.

I actually ended up using Sinister's way, since I recently got iTunes. And it actually worked near-perfectly. Check out the result.

Yeah, I did the whole thing back in the day but my lead voice got messed up trying to do it. Right-clicking is too complicated!

If I wrote video game music, this is what it would sound like. (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NM2ZDRO7)

I use FL Studio (http://www.flstudio.com/) (Not a Free Software)

I used many midi to mp3 converters, and many of them didn't suit me because of their lack of functionality. MIDI Converter Studio (http://maniactools.com/soft/midi_converter/index.shtml) is the best program for me. Well, it's just my opinion.

Does no-one just use a loop-back cable from their stereo-out to their line-in anymore? Back in the early nineties, when all else failed, that method delivered great results.

For batch conversion I can suggest a MIDI to MP3 converter (http://www.abyssmedia.com/midirenderer/) from Abyssmedia. Its really fast, 5 min. MIDI track converted to MP3 within 10 seconds.
