I have all the RBN tools (I think so, anyway). Here's what I've got:

Mod edit: unless you really need the original Magma V2, stick with C3 Magma in the OP.

Thank you so much! I've looked and asked everywhere for Magma. :dance:

Nice to see all the tools here. Though busy, I'll have to look into doing some custom work.

I went ahead and PDF'ed the RBN wiki from the web archive for anyone that needs it. It's probably incomplete, and it's definitely missing pictures. It's in my Dropbox link, above.

I appreciate the upload. I've been able to start making customs thanks to this. I'd just like to point out that the most of the text events needed are missing from the template (like the drum start and song end events). Oddly enough the start ones are there.

Does there happen to be an alternate verified download location for RB3Maker?

If 4shared is an issue owing to the need for an account, consider using one of the accounts off bugmenot.

Ah, that helped with the one issue, thanks! ;)

Other issues were various ad-blockers, tracker-cookie busters, cross-domain security, and NoScript settings. Whew! :P All set now!

Here's the latest beta:
http://keepitfishy.c... ... 3Maker.zip
http://keepitfishy.c... ... er_src.zip

Once it settles down a bit, I'll update the OP.

New to Reaper. When I try to load the project template linked in the OP, I get this message:

Posted Image

What should I be doing here? I assume there are some additional files I should get, and I'd put those in an "RBN" folder before proceeding?

I'm also having trouble understanding this part listed in the instructions:

Also included are note name files (BASS note names.txt, etc). These can be useful when importing bare MIDI files. Right-click in REAPER's MIDI editor, and select File / Load note names from file.

I think I've gotten into the MIDI editor (I dragged a MIDI file onto Reaper and it opened a bunch of tracks), but when I right-click I'm not seeing a "File " menu.

Hmm hadn't thought of that - it's just the count-in sound (1, 2, 1-2-3-4). In this case, just a drum stick on the rim. You can replace it with any old sound (hihat, stick, pasta on wall, etc).

You have to right-click the right spot - in the MIDI editor window, above the notes (where the measure numbers are, I think).

You can also right-click the "Text Events" dropdown for the same menu. REAPER is weird.

Cleaned up the OP and added the current Magma link.

After changing one of the MIDI tracks, should I be using the "Export Project MIDI" command to save it? I've done that and then used Le Fluffie to rebuild a package with the modified .mid, but the resultant file shows up as corrupt in the Xbox dashboard. Not sure if I'm saving incorrectly or doing something else wrong in the process.

EDIT: Apparently my problems were related to an issue in Le Fluffie, and not Reaper itself. I updated Le Fluffie and the stuff I was trying before works fine now.

Looks like the tools link in the OP is truncated at the ...

edit: Holy crap that loop mode is INSANELY useful for charting vocals. Great tutorial!

Though one thing I had to figure out -- make sure that your Default Action under Options -> Preferences-> Editing Behavior -> Mouse Modifiers (with "Edit cursor handle" selected in the dropdown) is set to "Jog audio (looped-segment mode)". Mine was set to just Jog Audio so the looping wasn't working.

I'm not sure if I'm looking in the wrong place or not, but some the links in the OP aren't working, like other resources under reaper, & magma. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
