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
My wife texted me a selfie and asked "Does this make my butt look big"? I answered Noo, autocorrect changed it to Moo. Please send help.
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.

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.
Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.
Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.
