Doing a quick conversion

It is a very simple process to convert a MOD file into a MIDI file using 2MIDI. These are the basic steps to follow for a quick conversion.

Use the default config [FILE OPTIONS]
The default config contains the recommended general purpose settings. Select CONFIG from the file types. Then use the file selector to locate and select the default.cfg file. Click the READ button to load the config. When you run 2MIDI for the first time the default configuration is automatically used.

Load the MOD [FILE OPTIONS]
Obviously, you must load a MOD file into 2MIDI before you can convert anything. Select MOD from the file types. Then you can use the file selector to locate and select the file you want to convert. After you've selected the file to convert, click the READ button to load the MOD.

Choose a sample format [SAMPLE OPTIONS]
Select the format that you want the samples to be exported in. Depending on which format you chose, you may have to choose a base key for the samples to be exported in. You may also have to use the BIDI option, if you want to keep bi-directional loops in formats that do not support them. After you've selected a sample format, you should click the RESET button, this will reset the patch number for each of the samples.

Do the conversion [CONVERT OPTIONS]
Press the CONVERT button. After the conversion is done, information about the MIDI events and notes created is displayed. You are also informed of any rejected notes. If the MOD uses over 16 channels you are likely to have atleast a few notes rejected.

Write the MIDI [FILE OPTIONS]
Select MIDI from the file types. Then enter a filename (including full path) for the MIDI file in the path box at the top of the file selector. Then click the WRITE button to write the MIDI file.

Write the samples [FILE OPTIONS]
Select SAMPLES from the file types. Then select a directory for the sample file(s) to be written to, you can optionally also enter a prefix for the sample filename(s). Then click the WRITE button to write the samples.
