A WAV file is a popular audio file format for storing audio bitstreams on PCs. These are typically large files as they are raw and uncompressed. Every time you record something on your computer microphone or a sound recorder, it is stored in WAV format. MIDI, on the other hand, are smaller files mainly used in digital musical instruments like keyboards and synthesizers. You will need to convert a WAV file to MIDI in order to store a particular audio file on your electronic musical instrument storage memory for editing/tracking purposes.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Use AmazingMIDI to convert a WAV file to MIDI. AmazingMIDI, the only freeware available for this function, is easy to use and can recognise single-instrument polyphonic music like recorded audio songs on a sound recorder or a computer microphone. With AmazingMIDI, you can transcribe music in staff notation that can be extremely useful for practice purposes.

  2. 2

    Download the program from Pluto (see reference), Tucows or another freeware source. Launch the program.

  3. 3

    Click on "Input File" on the main program window. Browse to navigate the WAV file you wish to convert. Single-click on it and select "Open."

  4. 4

    Click on "Output File." Browse your hard disk to select a secured location to store the converted MIDI file. Click on the Save icon (looks like a floppy disk) to start the conversion process.
