CD+G to midi? I'm not concerned about having the words show up, just desire the great (dare I say) Karaoke Georgia Brown arrangements.

I'm then looking to have them on a stick, show up on my "songs" menu in the PA800 from where I can mute and balance tracks.

Can it be done?

thank you.

No...Well not very well anyhoo Zuki..

There are no "serious" polyphonic Audio to MIDI converters out there worth a damn really.

Some pretty good mono audio ones, ie a single instrument/solo vocal only, but for full band audio, none.

Zuki, I think Donny is saying just convert the CD-G over to an MP3 file and then use that as your backing track.

Although you WILL need to install the mp3 card into your PA800..

Hi Zuki
This is probably the best there is, http://www.celemony.com/cms/index.php?id=products_editor and it works polyphonically too. (Just remember it is not a real time process)
Hope this helps

Bill

But not very well Bill...At least I would not recommend using the output for anything professional...
Have you actually tried using it to extract even just drums, for example? Let alone correctly guessing the pitch and length of overdrive and distorted guitars...then separating all the effects that have been applied to the audio track....I could go on with a whole lot more reasons why they don't work well, but I think you get the idea...

Thxs guys, but what I'm after (after research) is a midi file. This is the only file I can take from my song mode to the sequencer mode in order to make track changes. An mp3 will not allow this in the 800. Midi files just don't have the quality and backup vocals as mp3 or cd+g

Well then why not just find a Karaoke version...karoke is only a midi file BUT with scrolling lyrics added and the extension .kar...
Its very easy to make it JUST a midi file from a .kar file
