Hi! I have a load of .sng/.SNG files which I downloaded to my laptop from the floppies I used in my X3.
So far, I have been unable to find any way to convert them to a format which can be heard - mp3 or whatever.
Does anybody know of a file converter within the budget of a total pauper (i.e. preferably free!) which will do the job?
TIA for any advice.

The .SNG file format is a MIDI-based set of instructions describing how to play music, largely on Korg instruments, rather than the digitised sounds themselves. The .SNG file format differs between intruments, so the only real way to reproduce the song itself, as originally played, is to load the .SNG files into the same instrument, i.e. an X3, ideally with the exactly the same soundset in the Programs and Combis as used for the orginal song.

SNG format is only readable by korg synths. The X3 SNG files can only be read by the X2, X3, N264 and N364. If you can find one and load those files in, you can save them to Standard MIDI (*.mid) and load them into any sequencer.
