How do I put music into MikuMikuDance 7.39? How do I add songs to Miku Miku Dance? Where do I get songs? Where do I get how do I make WAV files of my music?

Add Songs to MikuMikuDance 7.39:      Meiko showing her "Bones"All you need is a WAV file!

With your WAV file in hand, you can put it into the WAVE folder inside your Users folder in MMD. Then open your dance (or start a new one) … go to the FILE Menu and select Load WAV File. That’s all there is to it!

You can make your own WAV files from your music using audio editing software. I have found an easy-to-use program that makes it simple. It’s a big, full power application with a 14mb download … but after you get it installed, it’s only TWO CLICKS to make a WAV file. READ HERE for the details about Audacity® 2.0 Audio Editor software download.

While you are there in the FILE dropdown, note that your other WAV options are Play WAV with Frame and Not Play WAV File. “Play with frame” lets you kind of hear the music as you advance the frame counter; making it easier to time your motions with the music. You can also SEE the music on the scope above the frame counter. My computer often lags the MMD animation behind the music by a few frames when I push PLAY … but when converted to a video, the timing is right on .. so believe your eyes and ears as you synchronize you animation with your music, frame by frame, and know that clicking PLAY may show inaccurate timing … animation lag.

    Audacity should be able to open your source file … your original music. To save it as a a WAV file, do not click SAVE. Instead click EXPORT and see that the drop-down shows WAV file to be exported. That should do it. You gave me your email, I will follow-up with you to be sure it works.

    My WAV file cuts off before the end of the video after rendering. Did that happen to you before? I started from frame 0. It’s a 5 minute + song.

    Are your frames per minute in sync?
    MMD can 30 or 60 fpm’s and if one is off that might affect it.

    Perhaps start and end times could be out of sync as well?

    When you export the WAV file from Audacity, use the “(Microsoft) Signed 16 bit PCM” selection as the format for output. That works in MMD 7.39.
    I have never had a WAV fail to play when I “Load WAV File” in MMD. I am thinking the WAV file you have is not of the “16 bit PCM” variety. Please email me if you are still having problems: [email protected]
