Any idea why this error is popping up?

There is nothing missing on any of the charts that I can think of and all difficulties are present. It's happening on two different projects.

Make extra sure you have no unallowed notes, like medium or easy hopos.

How about this one?

The test_suite.rpp project worked as it should. This error is from a new project that I am starting. So far I have Expert Drums, Guitar, Bass, and most Vocals charted, but absolutely nothing else is added (no OD, fills, prc, reductions, etc.) Should this work at this stage of development or must I wait until the project is more complete? Thanks.

I looked through all the charts and did not find anything out of place. Also, if it matter, the projects build in Magma without any issues.

Do you have time signature changes?

Yes


That might be it. I'm not sure CARV was developed to account for time signature changes (remember we haven't developed it, it's an old project pksage revived). Just for a test try to remove those TS changes and check.

CARV works on a song I've done with many time signature changes, so time signatures wouldn't be the problem. But since the error ws54 posted is the exact same as the one that BravoGangUS posted on the first page. I suggest making your EVENTS track compile ready (adding the music_start, music_end, end events. Possibly practice sections too). That solved Bravo's problem so it should solve yours too.

I had that exact same error, and the error was due to some blank meta events in my harm3 track. Go into the MIDI editor for your vocals tracks, and go into Events List mode (alt+3) and check for any abnormal events (abnormal being any event that isn't a Track Name, Text Event or Lyric). Also make sure that you only have one Track Event at the very beginning of the track.

Thanks for the help. I did manage to find some vocal slide "+" notes as text events instead of lyrics, but sadly nothing else unusual and I'm still having the same issue.

Could this be something specific to a GH conversion? Has anyone successfully used this tool on a conversion?

I had the music_start, music_end, end events. After I added the practice sections then the error went away. Thanks for the tip.

I really need to go through and make the script less sensitive to things that are out of place. The guy who developed it assumed everyone would be using the RBN template, that no one would import anything from GH or an external MIDI...bleh.

I can give tips on the main offenders. CARV tends to fail for any kind of error, almost.

The worst part is that a lot of them are just debug lines. There have been one or two cases where only the debug-printing has broken it, and commenting that makes it work.

I wanted to get this and the CAT working finally, but I can't get "ReaScript" to show up under preferences. I have Reaper 3.78, Python 2.7, and I'm on Vista.

You need Reaper 4.22.

Thanks. It works now. I guess it was time to upgrade. I'd been using 3.78 since the beginning because that's what was in PKsage's video, but I think I just might be familiar enough with it now to finally move on.

Real eager to try out CAT.

I get that error all the time, and I can't remember what I usually do to fix it.

Check/do the following things:

- Make sure none of your vocals tracks are muted
- Make sure you have phrase markers
- Run "Remove invalid markers" in CAT (this one is most likely to fix it, I think)

Worst case, if we can't get it fixed, we can go in and comment out that debug line.

Yeah, I'll take a look at it.

I'll see if I can find time in the near future to scrap this piece of shit script (that I didn't write!) and get the really important bits into CAT.
