I have MIDI files that I need to convert to audio files. I typically do this by creating a track in my DAW, assigning to the track a sampler with the sound I need, dropping the MIDI track in there, and exporting the audio. I'm doing this a lot, it is becoming impractical and I would love to improve this workflow. Does any sampler (Kontakt, UVI...) allow some sort of "offline" rendering (where I would just give it the MIDI as input and get audio as output, according to my samples and settings)? Or is there another method I'm not aware of?

    There are many MIDI -> audio converters, including a lot of online structures, but I don't know of anything that will slipstream to a specific sample set. They tend to be "GM".

  • Thanks @Tetsujin, yes I saw a few of those but indeed I'm looking for something that I can set to my own sounds (with a proper sampler, not soundfonts or the likes...)
