I know a few of you have moved from using SMF/MIDI files to mp3. May I ask how you are making those conversions? Must I play the midi file while recording it as an mp3 or is there software that will do this? Thanks.
The end product (MP3) will only be as good as the sound engine used during the conversion process. I have always gotten the best results opening the MIDI's on my Yammie keyboard and tweaking the various instruments to my liking and then recording it from there.
Thanks for the link, Randy. I’ll give it a try, but I think the s975 sounds will be superior to to the program’s. When you record from the Yammie do you use the resident recorder or offload to a different recorder?

Cass - I have had excellent results recording directly on the keyboard. I have on occasion recorded directly to the PC (Mixcraft Pro Studio) app and also got great results. Also, I definitely agree - the Yammie voices will be superior to what most if not all the automated converters use. Have fun!
