All songs are by The Beatles, except for Commotion by CCR.

 

Hi, do you mean that all the songs in your list suffer from the loop ending problem, or are you only guessing they probably do so because of the discrepancy between midi and audio lengths? Be aware that there are many songs with such discrepancy but no loop ending problem.

 

Also, remember that when the custom is not multitrack, you can use method 3 from my list (extracting the audio for phase shifter, then rebuilding in Magma) which doesn't require to modify the midi file, and actually doesn't require any choice on your part. I spent some time trying to unsuccesfully fix the midi of "Would I Lie To You?" which I probably already messed up myself at the first attempt, only to remember later about method 3... which fixed it immediately.

When I first played Day Tripper and it loop ended, I did not think much of it, I just put it down to not play it. The next time I played I picked it, and had the same problem, so I figured something was up.

When I posted about that, wondering if it was a d/l issue or something, you directed me to this this thread.

 

I then played through all the Beatles songs I had d/l(which was, all of them).

The list above was all the songs that loop ended. Lucy only sort of loopended, it would repeat for a while and then exit, but I changed it to remove that issue as well.

 

I barely made it through working with Reaper. I'm sure I would have accidentally launched nuclear missiles if I had fired up Magma!

I hope Thick as a Brick is ok!


In case you were still worried, Thick As A Brick is fine, it doesn't loop.

Thanks for the info. I am slowly working through all the songs, not trying for score or anything, just finishing them, to check for looping. Only up to the 'D's so it will take a while.

Is there any way you can post the fixed versions anywhere?

I've been thinking about it. I should contact the original authors and see if they are ok with the idea, and maybe if they want to post the ps3 fixes directly under the original custom.

That would be amazing. I may reach out to you via PM, as I seem to have found some other problematic songs.
