Converting a MIDI file to an MP3 is sort of like making the outline of a painting, and letting someone else decide how to finish it. What kind of paint will they use? What colors will they use and where? There are a lot of decisions you make as a producer that will be the difference between a song that really encompasses your vision as an artist, or something that just sounds like a glorified Nokia ringtone circa 2002. Choices such as the sound palette of instruments (bass, leads, drums, pads, etc.), and other vital processes such as mixing and mastering make all the difference.
