I want to work up a looper version of this and just need the drums from the core parts.

Would it be possible to post the .MID of the main verse loop, the Chorus loop, and the outro beat?

This is great - Any way to break it up into the same parts but with the bass/other instruments too? (Possibly add the intro too if it’s not too much trouble…)

I’ll see what I can do.

I’ve been working up a looper cover of this where I lay down the bass line and a little guitar. I grabbed the audio from Vincent Price’s monologue to see if it would work as an Accent Hit for the song. Turns out there is a file size limit of about 3.5M for Accent Hits. However, I was able split it up into 5 separate files:

  1. Darkness falls across the land…
  2. And whosoever shall be found…
  3. The foulest stench is in the air…
  4. And though you fight to stay alive…
  5. The laugh

I ended up creating 5 parts for the outro, one for each of the “Accent Hits” above.

During the song I build the loop the for the outro and then cycle through the 5 parts hitting the accent footswitch to play the parts of the monologue. Kind of hacky but it works!

Evening - disregard my request. I spent some time with it today, changed the key and figured out how to make the OPB work for me!
Wonderful version of the song and I can’t wait to play it during Halloween season.

I finished it today and will post an update sometime late this week. Otherwise, no sweat and glad to hear you have it working to your satisfaction.
