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!


You mean.......multi-track......actual Beatle tracks.......in my multitrack mixer.........??????   It's All Too Much......<faints deadaway!>

 

Who do I kiss for this?  THANK YOU SO MUCH, JOE, for bringing this to the forum, even if I don't get any sleep now for the next several weeks.....

Yep, that's it. If you've never done any audio editing Audacity might look a little strange at first, but if you play around with it for a while you'll get so much more out of it. Highlight part of a track, go to the Effect menu at the top of the screen, then reverse it, add phasing effects, Wah-Wah etc. Copy and paste it into a different part of a song, or a different song altogether. The sky's the limit.

Glad people are enjoying these as much as I am!

Yes, fantastic!  Also, I discovered that I Want You and Daytripper both balked at opening on Audacity but opened all right using "Reaper," which is a free (for 30 days) audio editor.  It's not exactly "intuitive friendly" but if you've dealt with any audio editing programs, you can figure out how to get the wav files out of there.  Audacity deconstructs the mogg files quite nicely!  I'm mixing the wav files on a nice little program called MultriTrack Studio (http://www.multitrackstudio.com/), a very user-friendly program for recording/mixing.  If EMI doesn't put out the White Album in 5.1, I'm gonna go crazy......listening to Dear Prudence last night: I actually started crying because it was so wonderful to ilsten to each and every part......

 

Thanks, again, for the lead to that off-board site.  You're right: this makes me want to go out and buy the game, all of its accessories and any future releases/upgrades.....

I don't find the bass inaudible on that song, but the drums aren't particularly prominent. The bass is actually distorting on mine - it goes right into the red.

Give another song a go. You're unlikely to get full isolation of tracks in anything but the Abbey Road and some White Album songs (which were recorded on 8-track) because full separation rarely took place in the studio. Normally there's at least a bit of headphone bleed, and often two or more instruments recorded on the same track.

Also, I don't think the makers of Rock Band really needed full isolation - the game works OK if an instrument can be mostly reduced.

By inaudible bass I meant full overload, but the actual wav file looks perfect!

And I was anticipating some bleed, but not THAT much. Like I say I'm probably expecting it to be too perfect.

I'll give some more songs a go later on this week.....

Wow.

I've started to download all.

I've started to do Stereo remixes too.

But i found a problem. a-hard-days-night-george-4 Because of the isolation, some of the tracks have been affected. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

And because of that, there's constant gaps, filters and all that, that makes it sound not so good. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

For example, on Can't Buy Me Love the drums seems that we're sticked to the guitars, and the isolation causes the drums have gaps.

On Boys, the drums we're sticked to the vocals, so both had gaps and sudden stops.a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

And that makes the stereo remixes impossible to do. blue-meanie

But i managed to make stereo remixes on other songs.

Wondering, what should be on the left on the center and on the right channel? a-hard-days-night-john-2

And now, i've made on most of the songs quite good stereo remixes. a-hard-days-night-john-6

 

I would post them soon. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15
