A Morse code TEXT-to-MIDI converter that creates a Morse code standard MIDI file from ASCII text.

CW MIDI (for DOS) screen

The World's first TEXT-to-MIDI conversion software! Create Morse code files from ASCII text that play on your sound card. This program creates a Morse code (CW) Standard MIDI File (SMF) from ASCII text. Create MIDI files that send Morse code, by simply typing your messages, or importing ASCII text files. MIDI files provide an extremely efficient storage method for digital audio information. By using MIDI (*.MID) files, instead of using Wave (*.WAV) files to digitally store the audio, the file size is greatly reduced in comparison for the same Morse code data. You can save your CW MIDI file as a General MIDI file (*.MID) or as a RIFF MIDI (RMID) file (*.RMI) by including the appropriate file name extension (.MID or .RMI). This simple program is a "must have" utility for any Amateur Radio operator. Use it to send "E-Morse" messages, by E-mailing *.MID or *.RMI files to your "Ham" friends, create code-practice files, or create a CW station ID’er. Although this is a DOS-based program, it also runs great from within Microsoft Windows. However, a newer and improved version of this software is available specifically for the Windows environment, called CW Midi for Windows.
