Check your MIDI events and the name of the drum track itself. From the sounds of it, you've got an event that shouldn't be there, or there isn't a track name MIDI event named PART DRUMS.

 

I know its in Part Drums. I moved the GH tube into the C3 custom template, same as the other instruments, and only drums gives me this error.

 

I would have no idea what event would be out of place :/

If you copied the track into C3 template, it may be that the part drums is 2 part drums on top of one another because there is one on the track already from the template and one from the track you copied. It happened to me once in the very first conversion I did. I hope it is that easy to solve for you.

Well, I deleted the note tube that was there from the template, and moved the tube from the GH import into that empty track.

 

Also, I started working on another GH convert that gives me the same error so maybe there's something fundamental I'm doing wrong.

The correct way to use the template for conversions is to select all notes and events from each track (CTRL+A in the MIDI window), go to the template track, delete all events, got to M1 and paste.

OK I tried that and I still get the same error,

 

ERROR: MIDI Compiler: (MIDI FILE): MIDI track header for track 2 is corrupt

 

I tried it in an existing project; I will try it a little later in a fresh project in case that makes a difference.

 

Nunchuck suggested that I deselect four drum events when deleting the template drum track; Farottone is that something I should do too, and if so which ones exactly am I NOT deleting?

I have compiled 600+ songs and never seen that error. Are you sure you're exporting the MIDI to a readable folder?

 

I ... think so. I can compile the song if I mute the drum track, and I export both the drum and nondrum version midis to the same folder.

 

I'm sure what I'm messing up is something boneheaded, but I hope its not something THAT boneheaded :)

So, progress report:

 

spindoctor6969 somehow fixed the drum track! I have no idea how; seriously, it was voodoo or something. Now I need to add dryvox to it because I'm not into ventriloquism, and maybe spruce up the animations a tad. I should have spelled it out in my OP but my intent with this project is to get songs that I like into RB, with as much quality as I can eke out from my limited free time. Anybody who wants to add to/improve my stuff is welcome, just let me know.

Stray Cat Blues is finished and has been released.

 

I'm still getting the corrupt midi header with I'm Free, so I plan to start a thread in the troubleshooting forum to get to the bottom of it. It's really bugging me, to the point where I don't want to do any more customs because of it *always* popping up! Grr.

 

My next goal: learn tempo mapping. So far: tempo mapping 1, Kemiroch 0. Tis hard :(

I just finished The Stones - I'm Free (live). I don't want to release it until I have a chance to test it, though, so I threw up a beta version. If anyone wants to try it out let me know if it has any glaring errors.

 

I put The Sounds - Shake Shake Shake on the back burner, which made me very sad :( It's a song I desperately want on Rock Band but it is NOT a song to do for a first time tempo mapper. The drums don't even start until quite a ways into the song. I'm thinking of trying a song with a clock-like drum track that starts right away, like 'Time Waits For No One' or 'Mystery Achievement'.

This is the As Made Famous By version from GH somethingorother (1 or 2, I forget) that spindoctor6969 originally converted.

 

It's pretty good, as far as covers go. The guitar actually has some additional 'weight' that the original (at least the version I have) seems to lack. The vocalist is good but no Anne Wilson, though.

This is one of the better cover versions I have heard of any of the cover songs in the guitar hero games

Added some more progress. My plate is getting fuller and fuller, so the ones I'm working on now will probably be it until they are all done so I don't get too overwhelmed. Look for at least one of the Stones tracks some time next week, hopefully both and a slight possibility of the Heart track also.

 

I have begun the process of learning how to convert PowerGig songs to RB. It is a lot more labor intensive than GH tracks are, and pretty unknown territory, so I will post periodic versions for anyone to download, test, and provide feedback. Expect the first one before the end of the weekend, possibly even later today.
