Being able to take audio files, decode the transients and pitch data, and then convert this data to MIDI is a super handy feature. And this can be done in FL Studio. For example you could browse through your audio drum loops pull them into FL Studio, extract the note data and then use this converted MIDI pattern with another drum instrument in your song. Or maybe you want to record your song ideas down singing/humming them into a microphone. Then you can convert these audio ideas to MIDI and assign them to other instruments. Let’s take a look at how this is done.
Step 1 – Adding Audio into Edison
First add Edison to an FL slot in the mixer (use F9 to bring up the Mixer if it is not showing). Double-click it to bring up its user interface. Drag and drop an audio file into Edison’s waveform editor.
Now go to the Step Sequencer (use F6 to open the window if it’s not already open), and add an instrument via the Channels menu. I’m going to add an instance of the FL Keys.
Step 2 – Convert Using the Tools Menu
Now jump back to Edison, and go to the Tools menu (the icon for the menu item is a wrench), then choose ‘Convert to Score and Dump to Piano Roll’ under the Analysis submenu. Go back to the Step Sequencer window and notice how FL Studio has placed a pattern in the channel with the instrument.
Step 3 – View Your MIDI in the Piano Roll.
Open this pattern up in the Piano Roll and see how Edison has converted your audio to a MIDI event with different note lengths, pitch data and velocities. You can go in and edit this MIDI data if you want.
Step 4 – Recording in Audio and Converting It
Alternatively you can record in audio ideas into Edison, and then convert these to MIDI. First make sure you have set up the correct audio input in Mixer. Choose your input on the input source on the mixer.
Then go into Edison, and make sure you have ‘On Input’ enabled.
Then click the Record button and Edison will record in the external audio input. Hum or sing in an idea, and when you have finished hit the stop button. You can playback the audio to check it recorded the idea correctly.
Now do the same steps as mentioned earlier, go to the Tools menu and choose ‘Convert to score and dump to piano roll’
Step 5 – Conclusion
That’s how easy it is to convert your audio files to MIDI. You can take rough audio sketch ideas, convert them to MIDI and then assign them to some of FL Studio’s awesome instruments. Or you can use your collection of audio loops, convert them to MIDI and assign the MIDI to new instruments. This really gives you extra songwriting flexibility.

MIDI was invented way back in the 1980s, it’s become extremely useful for producers of all music ranging from electronic music to rock, metal and even classical!
MIDI doesn’t actually refer to audio in itself, it’s actually a file or protocol which sends instructions to MIDI devices.
Most of us are familiar with MIDI as a series of blocks or notes on a piano roll within your DAW. MIDI also contains information about pitch bends and mod wheel parameters.
It’s essentially a code which can be freely transferred between different synths and patches.
For example, a MIDI part played on a normal piano synth can be transferred to another synth like Native Instrument’s Massive or Serum.
This makes MIDI extremely flexible, transferable and saveable to memory devices and cloud storage.
MIDI is perfect for songwriting – you can write melodies, chord progressions, single hits, drum beats – even entire complex compositions – and can then transfer them freely between software instruments.
Thanks to MIDI’s flexibility as a musical format, there are tons of free MIDI files available online for download. These can be imported directly into your DAW, placed on any MIDI-enabled software synthesizer and edited to your heart’s content!
You can download MIDI files ranging from full-blown compositions of your favorite songs to basic chord progressions, simple melodies, arpeggios, drum beats or almost anything else you can think of.
Here, we’ve compiled an enormous list of downloadable MIDI files.

EDM MIDI Files and Compositions
EDM has moved quickly in recent years. From Deadmau5 to Garrix, there are now hundreds EDM classics covering everything from dancefloor bangers to progressive evolving symphonies.

Hip-hop is widely known for sampling, the art of readapting and recomposing other music into loops. MIDI files for hip-hop tracks are often simple repetitive loops with hooks.
RnB is known for its soulfulness and slow groove.
Trap is known for massive beats and slow dark melodies.
