Simply open the midi file in Sonar, insert 2 audio tracks (left + right stereo). Set the track properties to record from either the audio output of your keyboard (if it's plugged into the computer using some kind of audio interface) or to any of the available virtual DXi synths. Set the midi tracks output to the same device, then start recording. The midi tracks will play through the keyboard or the soft synth plugin you specified and the audio will record to the two audio tracks. Once it's done, save the file with a new name as a Cakewalk Bundle, edit it and when it sounds right, delete the midi tracks and save the finished audio project. You can then select Export from the File Menu and export the file in Wave or MP3 format. For details just hit the Help button, it gives you specific instructions.

: Hi, hope there's someone around who can help!

: I'm recording some music for a short film, but have no idea what I'm doing! I've currently recorded one piece on Cakewalk Sonar 6 with my Yamaha P90 piano and saved it as a midi file.

: Now, I need to know what to do with it next. I was expecting to be able to convert it to a wav file or something, but this is apparently a ridiculously convoluted process so now I'm completely stuck.

: I checked out Timidity++ but haven't a clue what to actually do with it, so no luck there.

: If there's anyone who can give me some advice or help, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
