Welcome!
This thread will host songs from The Beatles: Rock Band that have been converted to work as customs for RB3.
Starting Christmas Day 2012, this thread will also host full band custom Beatles songs!

This project would not be possible without the prior work by xamphear and those guys, as well as the great audio provided by bluzer.
As of 11/06/13, everything changes! If you had the songs prior to this date, it is strongly recommended that you update them.

WATCH THE TRAILER!
http://www.dailymoti...ZJSHaOh4jy4SjQy

These songs won't be perfect!
We have dedicated countless hours to make these songs as close to official RB3 songs as possible.
They include features that most customs do not, and use the official instrument charts, practice sessions, player animations and album art used by Harmonix in the official game.
In short, these should be just a dreamscape shy of the quality you had when playing them in The Beatles: Rock Band.
However, we are human and have lives outside of this hobby. If something slipped past us, please notify us here and we will try to fix it promptly.

Links, Visualizer image for each song, and names of the contributors can all be found in the spreadsheet below:
http://beatles.keepitfishy.com

This project is a work in progress, and this OP is also a work in progress.
Expect changes!

Enjoy!

We love The Beatles and we love Rock Band, and are very thankful to Harmonix for creating this amazing game in the first place. We do not support piracy and we strongly suggest that you buy The Beatles: Rock Band and support Harmonix. We did!

If you are grateful for our effort and feel the urge to send us a donation, use that money to go and buy some The Beatles: Rock Band DLC!

THIS PROJECT IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH C3

I love the work that you all have done on these songs. The Beatles are my favorite band and when HMX said there would be no more DLC for Beatles Rock Band and no export....I was crushed. Thank you all for your hard work on making my dreams of more Beatles music come true! Not only that...but keys support for the existing music. :)

I eagerly await any more Beatles songs that you release.

Thank you very much for this - its fantastic to have The Beatles in RB3 :D

Just been downloding the files but there seems to be an issue with the Within You Without You / Tomorrow Never Knows link under the Love album.

Please can you fix this?

but when testing, as of ~4PM EST the link worked. nothing's changed to break it anyways. try again?

Did you keep the lip sync data for most of the songs from the original game, or did they have to be remade?

"Yellow Submarine" sounds WAAAAY off, and I can't tell which line belongs to which band member as I want to fix those cues, not forgetting the PRO drums track as well.

As soon as the bridge section comes up, the vocalist is making mouth movements, but no voice is heard. It's like (s)he's trying to make a tidal wave sound or something.

there was no way to keep the lipsync from the beatles game. all the songs had lipsync and animations added by petriz when we did the original process. the latest update in the old thread mentioned how I redid all the songs using the original charts, drum animations, hand animations for guitar/bass and album art. we still have to continue using the old lipsync, venue (with some minor changes) and audio stems. once i'm done fixing the few tempo map issues that came with this, eventually i'll start doing final RB3 versions with keys and fixing lipsync where off.

it's weird that it's off though, since petriz did them in Magma using the isolated vocals for lipsync. makes no sense they wouldn't be on time.

They're RAR files so extract them first then you can transfer with any program you like. The packager allows you to put them all into one file for easier transfer to your xbox and faster loading times.

Updated the following songs:
A Hard Day's Night
Can't Buy Me Love
Eight Days A Week
Hey Bulldog
I Wanna Be Your Man
Ticket to Ride
Within You Without You / Tomorrow Never Knows

All of these songs now have:
- correct tempo map and time signatures, as used in the original game
- fixed pro drums charts
- drum kit sound effects changed to Vintage Kit
If you had these songs, you should redownload them all.

These fixes and updates are coming for the remaining songs over the new couple of weeks.

- also updated Abbey Road Medley to include the original practice session names (which refer to each song that makes up the medley)
- Ticket to Ride now has Pro Guitar/Pro Bass courtesy of columbo777!

I've felt as if I've updated these songs like 100 times in the past few months but dont bother with my whining. Improving the song quality is worth it. Especially fixed pro drum charts me likes.

I just noticed when building the latest release that A Day in the Life only has one vocal part. Has it always been like that? Kind of odd for Harmonix to do that when there are two singers in the song o_O

That's weird. Oh well. At least it won't take much work to change when the time comes to do the RB3 version. The keys part, on the other hand...dat orchestra.

about that...I will not be pursuing that any longer. as soon as I'm done fixing the problems with the existing releases, i'm out. if anyone wants to update them to RB3 versions and add keys, i'll be more than welcome to add them to this project but I no longer have the time.

The fact I get to play them in RB3 is good enough for me, so thanks for that.

Yeah, that's not surprising, it's a hell of a lot of work. You've already done so much, and this project kicks so much ass, so I don't even care. Thank you for all the hard work you've put into this :)

At some point I might go back to this and make some RB3 versions of my own, time permitting.

I've read that there's a new song pack coming for these days.
Any news about it?

Thanks again! Congratulations for the excellent job
