I need to download one of arcamusical's accompaniments in a CD so I can play it in my CD player. What should I do?

CD players usually don't recognize MIDI files, you need first to convert the MIDI accompaniment to an audio format your CD player can read, like wav or mp3 but, take notice that not all CD players can read mp3 files. To convert the midi file you must use a converter software. There are quite a few free audio and video converters in the Web. We suggest you use Switch Sound File Converter which has a rather good basic free version. So here are the steps: 1. Download the song (accompaniment). 2. Download and install the converter software. 3. Load the song in the converter software and convert it to the desired format

It is not possible to obtain the score of the piece from its mp3 file or any other audio format file.

With a little effort, however, the notes can be read and the file might be useful.

Yes, it is possible. Most music notation software (MuseScore included) can perform that action.
