Subj: RE: [kl] Creating Wave Files From Midi Files
Date: Sun, 12 Oct 2003 11:21:40 -0400

For anyone who already uses Finale, which has always input and output MIDI
files, the new version for 2004 saves directly to .WAV and also saves to
SmartMusic accompaniment format. I think I read that the new Sibelius 3 does
the same thing (I haven't bought it yet). Of course, Finale and Sibelius are
a good deal pricier than WinAmp, which is, as you say, a freebie.
