SID to MIDI is a Windows command line program that converts SID files into MIDI files. The program supports a large array of arguments for customizing the quality and length of the output and does a pretty impressive job.

A later version was released with a proper windows front end and unrestricted options: SID to MIDI (Windows).

The supported arguments for version 0.17.7 include:
