Hey, so I'm mostly new to customs, but I've had a Muse project on FoF for years now and think it's worth getting into converting some of these for Rock Band. There's an astounding amount of tools and documentation now that make the process easier. Thanks to all the people involved in that, I never thought it would become that expansive.
 
It's a long list though, and a rather tedious process to convert them all. Plus, I still have new ones in queue (that will have RB conversion from the get go). So, I'm open to suggestions if any fans have songs they'd like to see get priority. I know they're a very highly requested band.
 
I guess as a reference, I've just uploaded City of Delusion as my first custom, and the C3 release of Undisclosed Desires was based off my chart.
 
Below is the list of songs I've already done for FoF. All of them have expert G/B/D/V at the least. I've crossed out ones that are already in the database, but I'm not sure what others might be floating around outside it.

 

Songs with a checkmark are in the database, and charted by me.
 
Aftermath ✔
Agitated
Animals
Ashamed
Assassin (Grand Omega Bosses Edit)
Big Freeze
Butterflies & Hurricanes
Can't Take My Eyes Off You
City of Delusion ✔
Coma

Crying Shame ✔
Darkshines
Dead Inside
Dead Star
Defector ✔
Drones ✔
Exo-Politics
Falling Down
Fillip
Fury
Futurism
Glorious
Guiding Light ✔
Hate This & I'll Love You ✔
Hidden Track
Hoodoo
Hyper Music
In Your World
Interlude
Invincible
Liquid State
MK Ultra
Madness
Man of Mystery
Mercy ✔
Micro Cuts ✔
Minimum
Muscle Museum
Muscle Museum (Hey You Crazy Kids)
Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever) ✔
New Born

New Kind of Kick ✔
Nishe
Panic Station (link)
Plug In Baby
Popcorn
Psycho ✔
Reapers
Resistance
Revolt ✔
Showbiz
Starlight
Stockholm Syndrome
Sunburn
Supremacy ✔
Survival ✔
The 2nd Law: Unsustainable ✔

Muse happens to be one of those bands that has a lot more customs floating around than usual. The following songs have already been authored:

 

Aftermath

Animals

Defector

Drones

Hidden Track

Invincible

Madness

Mercy

Psycho

The Globalist

Thoughts of a Dying Atheist

 

I can send you all of these if you want them. If you don't mind me saying so, Supremacy, Survival, and Unsustainable are my favorite Muse songs. I really loved 2nd Law and would be seriously grateful if any of those were made available. Just grabbed your custom of City of Delusion; super psyched to give it a spin. Thanks for making that one!

Wow I can't believe you're actually gonna start charting some of your songs over to rockband 3! This is my dream come true, I've been following your muse FoF project for some time. :D

 

I had a comprehensive list of MUSE songs that werent yet charted but that had GREAT rockband full-band potential, with song details and preview videos (the list needs to be updated by me again though) : http://customscreato...-muse/?p=116314

 

But based on your list here's my favorites in order:

Can't Take My Eyes Off You

Showbiz

Neutron Star Collision

Falling Down

Coma

Guiding Light

Glorious

Invincible

Big Freeze

EDIT:

Fillip
Hate This & I'll Love You

EDIT 2:

Micro Cuts

If you need a vocals tester, please PM me, I dont mind rebuilding my song cache for a new MUSE song. :)

Thank you, I've updated those. Aftermath, Defector, Drones, Invincible, Mercy, Psycho, Globalist, and TOADOA are from the Rock Band King I believe and those are already conversions of my own so it's a positive. I know he's done those customs at least (I have them) but they aren't in the database. I'll leave it to him to reupload.
 
Thanks for the suggestions.

Thank you. I will also take these into account. With the exception of some accuracy tweaks and better quantizing, the notation should already be sound, as I obviously tested them before FoF release.

Whenever you get the chance it will be appreciated. No rush though. I probably won't be speedy with these either as I'm new.

Butterflies and Hurricanes is also already in as a C3 release.

 

I'd love love LOVE to see Micro Cuts and Hate This and I'll Love You.

This is awesome, thanks for considering Rock band for your songs!

 

I would love to see:

 

Can't take my eyes off you

Glorious

Guiding Light

MK Ultra

Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)

Supremacy

The 2nd Law: Unsustainable

 

But really, any of those tracks would be awesome, thanks for City of Delusion by the way...

 

Also, there is a custom for "Survival" out there, by Tails4eva, Machine101 and Bsbloom. It is not in the database however...

I'm mostly a Showbiz guy, so from your list: 'Showbiz' and 'Hate this & I'll Love You' would be the ones I'd like to see most. My top two overall would be 'Cave' and 'Escape', but I assume you're only doing conversions, and not charting more tracks at the moment.

 

Excited for tracks from any albums before The Resistance though; Muse definitely has a lot of tracks that fit great in Rock Band. Thanks for taking the time to do conversions!

Here's a quick little fix for City of Delusion. The album art should be consistent with other releases from this album, as well as the album title ("&" vs. "and")

I'd also like to add the following to my fav list above:

Fillip

Hate This & I'll Love You

Micro Cuts

 

And a side-note to kueller, are you familiar with or are you planning charting the unique songs from the 1996 Newton Abbot DemoThere are some great early-MUSE gems on there too!

I'm also a Showbiz fan, pre-Resistance stuff, especially the B-sides, are amazing melodies and riffs!

Thanks! is this fix uploaded to the official one on the database too?

I will update the version of the database soon after testing this. Is there a way to see the consistent metadata without having to load an existing custom into the game?

Maybe some day I will but at the moment I have no plans to do those, and there's a lot more songs with more acceptable production value I'd like to get done first.

The visualizer tool in C3ConTools. Just drag the con into C3ConTools, and the song will pop up. Click "visualize." All I did was extract the .dta, change the title and save, drag the .dta back into the song, and then I also extracted an album cover from another Muse song and just dragged it onto this song (where it says ".PNG"). Then I changed the song ID and saved. I tested it in game, there's no problems with it. Go ahead and just use my link in the database.

Just want to say thank you for taking the time to convert your project over. I just finished watching a few of your videos and I am impressed. I will say that your version of some of the existing songs in the database are better. If you could revisit Panic Station that would be amazing. Here my list of songs that I'd like:

Cave
Dead Star (chart needs work)
Feeling Good
Fillip
Guiding light
Micro Cuts
Neutron Star Collision
Panic station (chart needs work)
Survival
Explorers
The 2nd Law: isolated system
The 2nd Law: unsustainable
United State of Eurasia

Good project to work on.  Harmonix and Muse are opposites of each other so no worries of customs being taken down due to official content being released.

This. Makes me wonder if Harmonix ever made any effort to get the rights to more Muse songs.

Licensing is crazy. Whatever you think of it, multiply it by 10 and then make it more crazy. You now have the best case scenario for licensing of any song. :) Harmonix is a business, which means that it's designed to make money.

 

If people want a product and a business doesn't provide that, it usually means that:

a. It costs too much to deliver

b. It can't be provided at all

c. It's not within the business' scope

d. There actually isn't enough demand for it

 

No business, certainly not Harmonix, thinks "Uh, this content would make us money and it's part of our core business. Let's NOT sell it and NOT make money." There are very rare cases of companies being dumb about something but this one I can guarantee is not it.

And so in the past week I've uploaded City of Delusion, Supremacy, Hate This & I'll Love You, and Micro Cuts. Each from a different album, and except City, the ones with the most requests.

 

From here on the project will take a small "break". I'm heading back to school this week and have some preparations to do for that. I will still have Reaper with me but I'll be leaving my Xbox and my only copy of Windows behind, so the frequency of releases will be slower. At best, once a week.

 

I'm also going to be working on a new song, since I've neglected the FoF fans for a bit. So the next custom will be Muse, but something not on the list. I will also be maybe converting some non-Muse customs I've held onto since I have been stuck on one band for a few years now.

 

I tried to get as many out as I could, while I could. So, enjoy these and keep an eye out for future uploads. I'll still be on the forums of course.
