Has anyone any idea how to convert audio files to midi? I tried this audacity program but no luck. I think i need to remove the vocals first and isolate the music. Anyone knows how to do this? (btw sorry if this is the wrong category)

You are asking to do something REALLY complex.

The best article about how to use commercial programs to do this I've found is this:

But basically, if you aren't a professional musician well accustomed to working with editing midi files you are going to get really poor results. The technology just isn't there to isolate out the various instruments and assign them properly by computer.

Mostly this works if you record only one instrument playing. For instance if you have a very clean audio file of only a guitar playing, you can get a midi file that requires only a lot of editing to make it nice and clean.
