Make sure you've installed swood before continuing!

Initial setup

Create a folder for your sound clips

Create a folder for your swooded MIDIs. (I'd suggest somewhere like Documents\swood on Windows.)

Download some WAV samples and MIDIs

Try downloading doot.wav and finalfantasy.mid to your swood folder. If you want to make your own samples, see Making Samples with Audacity. To make your own MIDIs, try MidiEditor.

How to swood a MIDI

  1. Open Command Prompt (or Powershell) by pressing Win+X and then C. (On Windows 7 and earlier, you can press Win+R and run cmd instead.)
  2. Copy the full path of your swood directory (e.g. C:\Users\Milkey\Documents\swood).
  3. Type cd <path> with <path> being your swood directory (e.g. cd C:\Users\Milkey\Documents\swood) and press Enter.
  4. Run swood with swood <in_wav> <midi> <out_wav> (e.g. swood doot.wav finalfantasy.mid ffdoot.wav).
  5. Your swooded MIDI is saved as <out_wav>. You can find it in your swood directory.
