Really impressive how an MP3 can be achieved from MIDI on a musically "unmodernised" RISC OS computer that only recently got an AudioIn (Iyonixs) feature, long overdue since the death of the Acorn acclaimed !Sibelius days. I too have been searching for ways to get !Sibelius7 (RISC OS version) files and/or it's MIDI on to CD in MP3 or Wav format (to hear on CD like a song), and without having to cross over to Windows to complete the task is near impossible! Well done Antius, a lot of patience for a tricky task on RISC OS. However, I recently was told by local New Zealand sound studio professionals that all these tricky outdated software techniques and any new developed stuff is not really necessary??? I have been advised that for around NZ$1,200 dollars I could get an Audio Digital Mixer that has CD Writer built in... and that's it!! My RISC OS !Sibelius MIDI output to my Roland SC8850 Sound Canvas (external sound module that play all my !Sibelius MIDI sounds), and then the AUDIO output (RCA 2nd speaker outputs) from the Roland SC8850 Sound Canvas goes to the Audio Digital Mixer where the built in CD Writer will Wav format the sound to CD. Antius may know if this is correct and/or will work? This method I'm told appears to be an alternative to using computer software to achieve CD sound of RISC OS !Sibelius files. Having RISC OS software still would be nice though. MusicMan software last month told me that the next release will have MIDI grab support to get MIDI to MP3 on CD. But I'm still '*Dreaming of a White Christmas' (*the return of !Sibelius7 music software upgrades!!) in a New Zealand Summer Christmas!?!? :bowdown: Cheers, Steve.
