Converting MIDI to MP3

Just one quick, simple question, that I haven't found any information on thus far: Does anyone know how to convert MIDI files to MP3?

I read their page, Son-Goku, and read their exhaustive list of supported audio file type. As impressive as it is, it doesn't say it works with midi. Would you happen to know of any other programs?

Another slightly more roundabout option would be to fire up some sound recorder (like Audacity, perhaps) and record your MIDI channel while you play through the MIDI. Of course, it'll take as long to record as the MIDI plays for, but in the end you'll be left with the MIDI in stream format. Then you can trim it up and/or apply any other edits to it that you want, and then export it as mp3, wav, flac, ogg...

Ok, that seems to do the job. Thanks!

EDIT: Ninja'd by Gerf.

I tried doing that, but my microphone, for some reason, would only pick up the bass lines. So, I had to scrap that roundabout idea.

You actually have to change your input device from the microphone to your MIDI synthesizer; when you do that, then what you record will be exactly the same as what comes out of your speakers. It's different depending on your operating system, but if you're using Windows, you can select the MIDI synthesizer as the input device by going to Volume Control -> Properties -> Recording and choose something that sounds like "synth" or something. Or if you have something like "What U Hear" or whatever, that might work too.

But yeah... recording from your microphone will sound like crap unless you have a REALLY wicked awesome microphone.

Now why didn't I think of that before? That's definitely an easier way to do it than what I was trying. Thanks
