EDIT (September 2014): Link appears to be no longer active.

Please note (especially if you're affiliated with Apple Corps, Harmonix, EA or MTV): I didn't create or upload the files in the above link, and only found them via a Google search. I don't know who was responsible for ripping and uploading them. Also, The Beatles: Rock Band is a great game which I thoroughly recommend people buy, and this is no substitute.

OK. These are the stem files used during the creation of The Beatles: Rock Band. They can be opened in Audacity (freeware). You'll then be able to isolate or mute particular parts of The Beatles' recordings, eg vocals, guitar, bass, drums, edit them, rearrange them or sample them. So much fun!

You'll also be able to hear bits of conversations, asides, mistakes and much more that can't be heard on the album mixes.

The three files Huge One parts 1, 2 and 3 are the Abbey Road medley. If you can't unpack .rar files, download UnRarX (OS X) or Rar Extract Frog (both free). There's also a readme.txt file, which reads: "Rename any files with *.ogg to *.mogg"

One other thing: because these are Rock Band files they often have count-ins drafted in from other studio takes, or fade-outs, so they're not always fully authentic. It's still as close to The Beatles' multitracks you're likely to get.

Happy mixing!

Day Tripper works for me (on a Mac FWIW).

I did, but it just does the same thing. That's a shame; Day Tripper is one of my favourite songs.

I've read that too, but I can open the Abbey Road medley without any problem. I don't know why it would flip out on IWY(SSH).

There's a discussion in the comments here, suggesting it might be a memory issue, but I doubt it is. http://avaxhome.ws/music/The_B....._2010.html

Joe, this is awesome!  I played with these all weekend.  I mainly muted everything but Ringo and Paul, and messed around with the channels.  Outstanding!  I did have a problem with a couple files, IWYSSH and Day Tripper.  They convert in Audacity, but no song shows up.  Oh well.  This is a great find none the less.

I always wanted to play the role of  george-martin

 

Thanks Joe!

Damn you Joe!

All the hundreds of hours I put into my "Alternate Hystery Tour" thing, and now I've got all THIS stuff to contend with?!  It'll take me hours just to absorb the "Good Morning Good Morning" tracks. Finally get to hear that screeching guitar solo isolated! And who knew that the boys' vocal devolved into "Guten morgen, guten morgen, gut!" during the fade?

Again: Damn you, Joe! (By which I mean THANK YOU!)
