    Please point me to a freeware program that will convert a cda file
    to a midi file.

    There is No software that will successfully convert audio files
    into Midi format.
    If you wish to create a Midi file, you need a Midi Editor,
    and type the notes in yourself.
    Then you assign instruments to the notes you`ve created.

  3. Any combination of a cd player program, yourself (especially ears and
    fingers) and a midi keyboard program - works best with a good midi
    keyboard, but sometimes as a crutch, a typewriter type keyboard might
    suffice - should do. Success largely depends upon the HMID (Human Music
    Interface Device) which has to handle the wav-to-midi transform.

    That seems like a hard way of saying No, Walter. <g>.
    Mind you I did like the HMID.
    If you had added `input` it would have ended up as HMIDI.
    I like the idea of Human MIDI.

    First convert the cda files on the CD to WAV files
    onto the hard drive ("ripping") using CDEX:

    Then, convert the WAVS into midis using:
    (not free, but not everything you want that gets
    the job done can be)

    Good luck, as the midi conversion is not an exact
    science type of thing.

    CDA -> WAV -> MIDI. Nothing free that I know of that will create a MIDI
    from a WAV file. And those that you pay for don't do a great job. Best to
    search for a MIDI composition of the song(s) you want done by a human
