mp3 to floppy

In short, no.

I once spanned an mp3 over 3 floppies to take to a friends house (heh, ye olde days :p) but to be honest the time it takes to split then re-build the other end just isn't worth it. Floppy is a redundant technology as far as I'm concerned.

If I need to take something to a friends house I either, CD-RW it, send it to him/her over IRC before I visit or put it on the web/ftp to download once I'm there.

I needed to know this as I want to transfer a mp3 file to a midi so it can be played on my wifes keyboard which will only take floppies, so splitting the file is not really an option

How about quality reduction? from like 128kbps to 64kbps? that could help.. MusicMatch can do that kinda stuff.. or what about windows media player... .wma format? :confused:

Hope this helps at all

There are programs that will convert .wav's to .midi files. You'd have to convert the .mp3 to .wav first. But, one caveat, the programs really only work well with monophonic sources. It has a really tough time converting polyphonic sources. You best bet would be to search the web for a .midi file that someone has already written of the material.


And most .midi files will fit on a floppy.

You can not convert an mp3 to .mid/midi format. No matter how many applications may claim they can do this, it's not possible. There are too many layers to the average piece of music for it to be accurate.

However there are a lot of midi resources out there, I'd suggest searching the net for a midi version of the song/tune you are after. If you have trouble finding it, name the tune and we can help :)

(edit) beaten to it, damnit :p
