Default Converting midi to wav files for better sound

For those who create tabs via software such as Guitar Pro, PowerTab, and TablEdit and then share them, people can listen to the midis but they generally do not sound that great. When I share a tab (like on my webpage) I generally add a PDF file (for those without the tab software programs) and a separate midi file. For fun I just converted one of the midis to a wav file (via Windows Sound Recorder, here’s how to do that

then altered the wav file a bit with some delay and reverb in my DAW. Finally I converted that to a mp3 for the internet. If you do post midi files you may be interested in trying something like this. Of course you could alter the original midi file much more than in I did in this example:


midi: http://dcoombsguitar.com/Guitar%20Mu...eWithSugar.mid

mp3 (from wav): http://dcoombsguitar.com/Guitar%20Mu...eWithSugar.mp3
