How to Convert MIDI to MP3 (Lyrics preserved)

One of the great strengths of our flagship software “Kanto Karaoke” is its powerful functionality of conversion from MIDI to MP3, leaving unchanged the synchronized text in the output file. The only limitation is that you can’t change the key (or volume or speed) of the midi before the conversion: the file is converted in his original key/volume/tempo.
If you want a powerful MIDI TO MP3 Converter that allows you also to change key/volume/tempo of the midi before the conversion, the right program for you is Kanto Audio Editor. Is is a powerful midi & mp3 audio editor that allows you to edit and convert any MIDI to MP3 format. With it you can change the key (pitch) of the mid/kar file and then convert it to MP3. In addition, you can also change the volume and the speed of the song.

During the conversion from MIDI to MP3, the lyrics (and its timing) will remains unchanged!

  2. Hi. Downloaded the trial version but cannot create any file to play to see how it performs (Just stops half way through a create and says buy!) Would be useful to create a small file or half a song to see how it works. Was looking for something to create mp3s or similar with lyrics but as it is the app may do this but no progressing without testing that it meets my needs. Not sure what you can actually do with the trial version so may have missed something.

    • With trial version you can convert first 60 sec of each file, and then play that file to check the result…
