Hello World!
 
Sorry, geeky intro. My name is Tony and I'm from the UK. Have been a massive fan of rhythm-action games since playing Guitar Freaks in my local arcade some time around the year 2000 (God I'm old). Bought Guitar Hero: World Tour on launch to play the "drums", and have been playing them since, until finally getting a Roland e-kit a couple of years ago to play Pro mode (HIGH-FIVE).
 
Am also a big Genesis fan, so when my GF showed me the Genesis Chronicles site I couldn't believe my eyes! Can't imagine the amount of hours that must have gone into that, so a MASSIVE thanks to all involved! Wanted to show my gratitude by giving something back, so here I am! Also wanted to say thanks to everyone who has created videos/guides/posts to help with the authoring process, especially pksage for his REAPER vid, TrojanNemo for his Magma vid, and Farottone for his tutorial doc and GOD-LIKE CAT tools. Such an amazing community!
 
Songs are mostly Genesis, with a few Roots songs, just to show that I do listen to something other than Genesis! Occasionally. Wanted to "complete" the Chronicles by doing a couple of tracks from Calling All Stations (quiet at the back), and the rest are just songs from other albums that hadn't been done, and a couple of B-sides.
 
Songs are all DRUM ONLY (with CAT E/M/H) at the mo I'm afraid, but have linked the REAPER files under the CONs so if anyone wants to chart another instrument feel free, and if you send me back the REAPER file I can update the DL links. Tempo mapping may be a bit wonky in places (I was learning!) and a couple are only tempo-mapped until the end of the drums (sorry!).
 
Please note I am not a trained drummer, and have never had a lesson in my life (should really get round to that at some point) so any corrections/suggestions/feedback would be very gratefully received! Would love to get these to C3 standard and onto the official DB.
 
Anyway, enough of me waffling on, thanks for reading and enjoy!

...ROOTS TRACKS! Dude. If you want to collaborate on something in the future, hit me up. None of the four tracks listed above caught my attention, but if you check my suggestions thread, I've got a list of Roots songs I'd contribute vocals for there. See if any strike your fancy. If we overlap, we might as well get something done :)

Did you mean GENESIS TRACKS?! Lol. Yeah, was pretty surprised that there were no Roots songs in the DB, and love that album so thought I would do a couple, which turned into a few. They're generally pretty easy as they're 4/4 and generally the same four bars for three-and-a-half minutes so don't take that long. Happy to go for your Obvious Choice unless there are any others you fancy doing?

 

Welcome!

 

Thank you! And thank you for so many hours of joy playing Genesis songs!

Apologies, removed. Thank you for all your Genesis songs as well, again, many hours of joy!

Apologies, also removed. Also seen that you are working on Duke's Travels/End and Ace of Wands as well so will stop working on them. Should really have checked all the WIPs beforehand! And thank YOU as well for all your songs, it is like C3 royalty in here! Can't express how admiration I have for you guys, and can't wait to see/play all the new charts. Thank you all once again!

Let's do it. Once you've got the tempo map and drums charted for What They Do, send me the Reaper and I'll get the bass and vocals in. Then we'll just need somebody to contribute that guitar part :) (and if anybody wants to add a keys part, that's a bonus!).

You could've left those two tracks up for now. I'll be sure to get working on those tracks sooner, once we get more prog tracks going.

Ah, okay. Wasn't sure of protocol and didn't want to step on any toes! Happy to wait for your versions, am sure they will be a lot better!

Few more (drum-only) tracks! Couple more Genesis B-sides, another Tony Banks solo joint, and an old funk record from my DJing days. 
 
All feedback again gratefully received. Enjoy!

I should have mentioned that I do have plans to do a full band of Calling All Stations (the song) at some point, but that's far off.

No worries, will keep an eye out and take it down when you're done.
P.S. Feel free to use the REAPER file if you haven't started!

HELP!!!

Have just got a PM to say that apparently these aren't working on Xbox, I use Phase Shift and they work fine. I think it might be as I don't have any drum fills, as Magma always moans at me when compiling. Would this cause it to crash on loading? If not, would someone mind looking at any of the REAPER files above and see if they can spot anything?

Thanks in advance!

Lack of drum fills won't cause crashes, but players simply can't deploy gathered overdrive energy.

 

I'll have a look at the files.

 

Edit: 'Feeding the Fire' contains a few template-empty Pro Keys midi tracks. Be sure to mute all of them before exporting the midi. I'm surprised this got past Magma when compiling.

 

The mogg contains more than two channels with the full mix, which is a no-go. Only put the full mix in the backing track and use empty tracks that come with MagmaC3 in the instrument and crowd tracks.

Thanks Whizzer! Will have a look at the Pro Keys tracks, don't think I made any changes from the C3 template so not sure why it's causing problems. What do you mean by "template-empty"?

Have been using muted WAVs for the instruments and crowd tracks, is that wrong?

Going to try and set the Xbox up over the weekend and do some proper testing. Apologies to everyone who has tried to play these!

I meant only the notes from the template are in there.
 
Whether or not you made changes is not the problem, it's that not all the tracks were muted.

No that's how you do it, but the mogg file I checked contained more than two channels with non-silent audio, so you most likely didn't do it for that track. Doesn't explain any crashing, but it's not proper.

Awesome! Thanks for that, will have a look and see what's happening. Thanks again!
