      We’re back with more keys for legacy RB tracks, and this time we have three artist packs to show off! The following are now available in my fork of the Rock Band Harmonies Project:

      • R.E.M. – “Driver 8” – keys by FujiSkunk
      • R.E.M. – “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine)” – keys by FujiSkunk
      • R.E.M. – “Stand” – keys by TheSheepQueen
      • Red Hot Chili Peppers – “Dani California” – keys by TheSheepQueen
      • Red Hot Chili Peppers – “Snow ((Hey Oh))” – keys by TheSheepQueen
      • Red Hot Chili Peppers – “Under the Bridge” – keys by TheSheepQueen
      • Go-Go’s – “Our Lips Are Sealed” – keys by FujiSkunk
      • Go-Go’s – “We Got the Beat” – keys by TheSheepQueen

      The Standard Spiel: What Is the Rock Band Harmonies Project?

      For those who might be new to the project, the original project announcement by espher, founder of the RBHP, still has plenty of good info. Besides the files hosted on GitHub, the most important bits are the RBHP Custom Packager, and espher’s tutorial on how to use it. The tutorial is still on YouTube. The packager is available here.

      For those who have purchased pro-guitar upgrades for legacy DLC, note that these cause conflicts with RBHP upgrades, and so you should not use the RBHP Custom Packager to add keys and harmonies to tracks with pro upgrades. In particular, “Under the Bridge” has a pro upgrade, so be aware if you decide to update that song for keys and harmonies.

      Hold Up…

      “Wait a minute, Fuji,” I hear you saying. “You can’t have an artist pack with just two songs!” Right you are, so here’s another Go-Go’s track, “Vacation”! Originally charted and released by Nunchuck and Sygenysis, this new version has genuine pro keys, plus some polish for the 5-lane keys track. The audio now includes a count-in as well.

      So there you go, three packs from three artists with three songs each, all waiting to be played on your favorite keyboard. Enjoy!

      Good to see this is still going. Though I haven’t had a Rock Band Night in over a year now, for obvious reasons.

      Did you ever figure out what was going on with One Way or Another and Wonderwall?

        Did you ever figure out what was going on with One Way or Another and Wonderwall?

        Yes, and I added a fix to the repo, so those songs should be okay now. Of course let me know if you see otherwise!

          A little late to the party… Actually very late to the party, but I do have a question. Where does one get their hands on the RBHP Custom Packager? The only references I can see to it is at keepitfishy.com which appears to be defunct. (Apparently the installation guide was also stored at that website, although at least there’s a [long] YouTube tutorial on how to add these.)

            Yes, you can find a link to the bundler in my latest announcement post. Look in the “standard spiel” section. You’ll find a link to the tutorial on YouTube there too, but it sounds like you have that already.

              Unbelievable — I read your post and misunderstood your link to the packager. I have it now, thanks very much!

                First of all, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to the amazing talent involved in this project. I’ve been pulling RB3 out of mothballs for parties and we’re getting more use out of the keytar than ever. It is so nice to just have the keytar out for party members and not have to worry about explaining “yeah you can hear the piano in Don’t Stop Believin’ but you can’t play it because…” These are amazing and I’m so happy to see that even over ten years after launch these tracks are getting some love.

                That being said, a few songs are giving me issues. They come into play when launching either the harmony part or the keys part–they cause the console to freeze up and shut down.

                One Way Or Another
                Call Me
                And She Was
                Once In A Lifetime
                Caprici Di Diablo
                So What
                I Heard It Through The Grapevine
                Wonderwall

                Also, I’m having trouble getting the keys and harmonies upgrades for to take on Stand. Other upgrades in the pack went through. Same issue with No More Tears, Mala Gente, Yerbatero and Welcome to the Black Parade. Any idea why those aren’t taking?

                EDIT: looks like it’s an issue with getting RBHP to take–harmonies on songs like Your Decision, Weightless, and a handful of other songs in the A’s and B’s aren’t taking either. Gonna try redownloading the RBHP and rebuilding.

                  Well that’s no good. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll take a look at those and see what’s going on.

                    On what console?

                      My apologies for how long this took, but the good news is I’ve just committed a number of updates that should fix most if not all the songs reported by TheWalrus. To everyone who was having issues with those upgrades — which likely was everyone that tried them — please try those songs again.

                      Note that not every song in the list got an update, but due to the way upgrades are bundled, an issue with one song tends to cascade and affect other songs as well. Of course let me know if you still see hiccups with these or any other songs.

                        Thanks for updating 🙂

                        But some MIDI files have mistakes:
                        Lego Rock Band – A-Punk: In harmonies, I think there is empty notes, because sometimes game is showing empty parallel lines in lyrics.
                        Rock Band – Cherub Rock: Optional Upgrades – Pro Guitar midi file does not includes harmony parts.

                          Lego Rock Band – A-Punk: In harmonies, I think there is empty notes, because sometimes game is showing empty parallel lines in lyrics.

                          I’m not sure what you mean by empty parallel lines. The “harmonies” are actually when the singer overdubs himself with one and later two parts. They all sing the same pitches, so they all get mashed together in-game, looking like lines with different blue and orange colors around the edges. The fact that there are no “harmonies” in the sense that different parts get different pitches to sing, is probably why the song didn’t get a harmony upgrade before now. Still, I felt the overdubs were artsy enough to justify charting them.

                          Rock Band – Cherub Rock: Optional Upgrades – Pro Guitar midi file does not includes harmony parts.

                          Whoops, now that was a genuine mistake. Thank you for the catch. Now fixed!

                            Sorry for misunderstanding. I mean empty vertical lines not parallel. I think, harmony parts includes some empty phrase markers. (maybe tamborine leftovers, if song has tamborine parts.)

                              I understand what you’re saying now. However, I don’t know for sure what could be causing that. I can only guess that the phrase separators (the vertical lines) are craeted based on the phrase bars in HARM1, which have to cover all vocals in all three harmony parts. HARM2 has to have phrase bars that cover any vocals in both the second and third harmony parts, and those are the only phrase bars in HARM2 for “A-Punk”. If you don’t see this in other songs and you have other suggestions on what it might be, I’ll take another look.

                                Here, I’ve cleaned up empty markers. I’ve think it’s fixed now.

                                Will the harmonies project continue? Or Pro Guitar/Bass charts? Too many RBN songs has (still) doesn’t have harmonies.

                                  Thanks! I’ve grabbed your file and when I get a moment I’ll compare and see what’s going on.

                                  Yes, other updates including more pro guitar/bass updates are in the pipe!
