similar to yegods above, I am trying to follow the guide and am not getting very far.

 

I downloaded all the tools, found a mid file, and imported that along with the mp3 into reaper but that is as far as I got !!

 

I mean I moved the start of the track to 3.1.00 and double click on an instrument track but I have no idea how to tell if they lined up properly. 

 

And this just has me baffled:  I get the first part about extending the track but after that..

4.1.4 Now we do a foolproof copypaste. First of all, drag the MIDI guitar track so

that it extends to the very beginning, at measure 1.1.00. DON’T MOVE IT!

You need to drag the left end so it touches the beginning of the project, so

that it looks like all the other MIDI tracks in the project. Now double click

the track to open it. Look at the bottom of the track and you will see the

PART GUITAR text event. Drag that to 1.1.00. Now you simply select all and

copy.

 

And when picking a guitar track, I see overdrive, distortion, melody and not sure which to pick.

 

Anyways, I thought I was pretty good at following instructions but I am kinda lost here.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would love to be able to contribute to the community.

Are you saying you can't make a connection between the audio and the notes on screen? If that's the issue, I'm not sure I can help, understanding what happens in the song with the added help of the MIDI notes/sheet music is a fundamental pre-requisite of authoring. If it's not the issue, can you elaborate more on what got you stumped?

Thanks for this guide. I made a custom using the RBN docs a few months ago but lost it (song was Marina and the Diamonds - I Am Not a Robot). It was also a complete shit show, which had bad tempo mapping and a horrible venue track. I think I'll go back and do it more properly and follow this guide, then release it here. Some people might appreciate it, even though the song itself is fairly simple, but I mainly made it so I could later sing it.
