Some are free, some demos and some are on-line conversion programs. Also don't forget that on the Window's side RealBand will convert monophonic audio files to MIDI.
Also note that whatever converter you use they may/will be some editing that you will have to do to get a perfect MIDI file. Personally I have found that Melodyne is the best audio to MIDI converter as it requires very little if any editing. YMMV
The irony for mankind is that a computer program asks a human to prove that they're not a robot!
64 bit Win 10 Pro, the latest BiaB and RB, Roland Octa-Capture audio interface, a ton of software and some hardware.
This may add some info... Is does show it is polyphonic! It uses an off load to their cloud server which is a bit weird, but it is what it is. I love Melodyne for vocals, but I did not purchase the very expensive polyphonic version.

Well that was surprising! I got Samplab working on a cello/vocal duet snippet in Logic, and was quite surprised at what it does.
It doesn't just analyze an audio track and create a corresponding MIDI note data track, it analyzes the track then uses MIDI to drive samples extracted from the original audio.
It's like having a MIDI interface to the individual instruments in a recorded performance.
The untweaked output sounds the same as the audio input. I thought, "I must be listening to the wrong track, that's actually George's voice, but I'm trying to play this software instrument track." But I was doing just that, playing a MIDI track, as I discovered when I tweaked a few notes on the piano roll and heard George change pitch.
I don't know what this thing could really be capable of in its full theoretical possibility glory, but if it can keep anything like a promise like that, woo hoo.
P.S. – Yes, I understand there's the other thread.

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?
It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.
Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!
Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!
If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.
