MIDI export

Post by neo3623 » Wed Jan 13, 2021 10:35 pm

Hi everyone,

I've been learning piano for a few weeks now on https://latouchemusicale.com which offers to import midi files to learn piano. So I wanted to know if there was a possibility to export midi files on Audacity?

If you need more explanations I'm still available.

Have a good day!

Or are you asking if Audacity can export MIDI as a playable audio file - a WAV or an MP3 say ?

If so, then Audacity cannot do that - and this would be a feature request.

This has "nudged" me into writing a formal proposal for MIx&Render of MIDI Note tracks in the Audacity Wiki:
https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Prop ... s_to_audio

But don't hold your breath - we are only a small part-time volunteer team with very few developers (and I do mean very few).

But
a) this is at least a stake in the ground
b) one of the developers has revived an interest in MIDI Note tracks, for Scrubbing in them - so may be interested in this, we'll see ...

Peter.

Yes. Please describe exactly what it is you are trying to do. :D

:( I do not think you can use Audacity to connect directly to your piano either for playing or for recording. :(
