    Converting music files
    Does anyone know a way to convert midi files or real audio files to .wav or .wma files or something that can be used with Windows products?

    Sandra, you can try IrfanView

    It's free, and it can be used for many Windows products.

    Like:
    Video/Audio:
    AIF Sound file, Audio Interchange Format X
    AU, SND Audio format used by Sun and NeXT machines X
    MED* MED/OctaMED sound format X
    MID Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) X
    MP3* MPEG audio layer 3 format X
    OGG* OGG Vorbis sound format X
    RA* Real Audio sound format (Real Player required) X
    WAV Windows audio file X
    ASF Advanced Systems Format X
    AVI Audio Video Interleaved X
    MOV* QuickTime Movie format X
    MPG, MPEG Moving Pictures Experts Group format X
    WMA, WMV Windows Media Audio/Video format X
    Try It, it's Free!

    Yep, you need a midi to wav converter like these,
    http://www.polyhedric.com/software/wavmaker/index.html
    http://www.midi2wav.com/
    http://www.008soft.com/
    Once you have it as a wav music file you'd then be able to use other converters to make the other formats.
    The quality of the wav sound is based on the converting softwares own midi instruments so you might not get the exact same sounds as you do directly from your sound card's midi, so try different converters to see what one you like the sound of.

    I've not tried .ra to .wav but this software claims to do that

    Thanks, guys. There are hundreds of Pagan chants available but they are all .ra. There are also tons of good midis. That is very limiting. So, I need to convert them if I hope to ever use them.

    Any audio/ Mp3 recording and editing software will be of use. Suggests FlexiMusic Wave Editor. Play and record the real audio files n thr sofyware and then using "Save As" command convert and save the recorded real audio files as wav. To save the files as wma, use the option "Export to WMA".
