Heya everyone,

Can a VST Plugin convert audio tracks into MIDI? Is it possible to do so?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for your brief reply. I was actually talking about a third-party VST effects plugin that could convert audio tracks into MIDI.

Is it possible for VSTs on this list https://techraver.com/best-synth-vst-plugins/ to do that?

I know it's not obvious, but my reply is a link. Click on it. :p

I thought you were being very succinct. :D WIDI Audio to MIDI seems like a decent VST, will try it and see how those tracks pan out.

Too bad the trial version has got some limitations though.

I'd be very interested to hear how you get on if you manage to try the plugin.

I accept that it is possible to create a MIDI file from audio, but I'm not at all sure of just how 'practical' this is, or what sort of midi file is created.

I've read that only certain sorts of sound file (as in type of music, instruments, complexity, etc) have any chance of creating anything useful, and that even then the resultant midi file may need so much work, manual tweaking, etc that it may all be a waste of time. But I just don't know.

If you do create any midi files this way, I'd really LOVE to get an example of the created midi file, to see just what comes out. And just what might be required to make it useable?
