As resident IMF Ninja I can give you a few pointers

First off, there is no way to convert mp3s into imf the format is just too different. You need a midi based format for the synthesizer to read off of

The ideal method is to use IMFCreator. You can find midis on the internet or produce your own using Seikaju or Anvil Studio or something similar. Keep in mind that the fm synth is simple and can’t handle as much as mid so keep your drum tracks simple and don’t use a lot of instruments at the same time. It will take some experimenting in the instrument creator to get suitable sounds that you want, plus you can also import from existing adlib type music and instrument banks. This is how I ripped the voices from Nitemare’s adlib music bank for my imf conversions.

Alternatively if you have knowledge of tracker programs you can use something like adplug tracker or even use Camoto studio to convert other adlib type music to IMF. This is difficult though because it requires rearranging and cutting certain channels and is difficult for the beginning IMF producer.

Keep in mind that depending on which port you use you have different max sizes for IMF files. DOS wolf requires that they are under 64kb, while wolf4sdl, wolf4gw and ecwolf seem to have unrestricted size.

If you would rather use existing music, we have a dump started on Zombie_Plan’s Wolfsource website.

Your best bet is decoding the MP3 to Midi, and then there are utilities that can convert the Midi into IMF form.

I wasn't too happy with the job the MP3-to-Midi utilities did when I tried them out. The transition just isn't very clean, and it doesn't put together the notes at a consistent tempo. It's probably made for MP3s much less complex than I've tried it with.

It tries (and fails) to match tones and set them to midi notes. You’re better off just remaking songs from scratch.

Don't forget that modern antiviruses have an odd tendency to detect old software. If you download IMFCreator from here and install it, and then your antivirus deletes the executable, it's a false positive. In which case you will have to find a way around it. Fortunately every antivirus has an option to manually set an exception.

Windows Defender says that because it's false positive as Serpens stated above.

I set an option of a folder to be a exception for Windows defender, I was able to download it, but when i was going to install it, Malware Bytes deleted it saying that is a malware.
I think is really a virus and not a false positive.
But if it really a false positive, why the antivirus says that is a trojan or malware?

Because most (if not all) anti-virus software is a scam, and you'd unironically be better off with none and take the risk of getting malware (which is usually pretty easy to remove) rather than go with the certainty of having a harmful piece of rubbish in your system deleting legitimate files.

Just my 2 cents. Wink

I haven’t used antivirus for a really long one as I usually use Linux and macOS but I can tell you all of Adams programs cause false positives for some reason. I can assure you that none of them are and the AV programs are retarded.

There are more programs to convert to imf, however they are a lot harder to use and you have much less control over what you can do. Camoto comes to mind for example. Chaosedit can directly edit imf files with the built in step sequencer but I don’t think you can convert.

There is also K1n9_Duk3's IMF tools (thanks to AstroCreep for showing me these):

I've only tried the IMF Player (which works in Dosbox) but heard some have had good success with his converters too:

Because MS tested it with 64-bit programs only, as far as I can tell. Adam's programs are written for 32-bit operating systems, and there's more than one reason he does it.

I decided to use it and to allow my antivirus to use it, is very easy to use.
Extra: You guys should try AmazingMIDI, is a program that allows you to convert to midi with waw files.

As others have said, it's a false positive. I've been aware of it for years, but I don't know why it gets flagged by some software. I've verified that what is downloaded is what I uploaded with nothing added to it.
I don't recall that all of my software has false positives, though, just IMFCreator.

Not every 32-bit program will spawn this flag - just ones with certain elements in the executable. I have no idea what these "elements" are, though.
