Converting audio to musical instrument digital interface (MIDI) can be a time-consuming process if you don't have the proper signal processors or audio plug-ins. However, audio easily can be converted to MIDI by using Cubase 3X, which allows you to edit both audio and MIDI based recordings. The Cubase 3X interface comes equipped with useful effects such as distortion, delay and a "MonotoStereo" option to help you achieve crisp audio and MIDI samples. To convert audio to MIDI, you will need to have audio songs or samples in stereo format.
