    The above URL contains a link to Trent Reznor's new single in GarageBand format. If you have a mac and want to give remixing a shot, the file is 70MB.

    From the readme:

    That is pretty f'in cool IMO. I always liked Trent / NIN, and how he approached production for his style of music. I feel a new trend coming on, no?

    :cool:

    That is friggin cool of him. Dang me for not having a Mac or Garageband! Do you think it is possible to extract the raw wav files and import into Cubase or Acid or something?

    Not sure you can find a PC utility that can extract the file.

    On a mac it extracts, and mounts a RAM disk that contains the files.
    Once it mounts you can see the contents.

    The Apple loops are .aif files with extra meta-tags describing tempo, and key. (Apple hired the software team that created Acid)

    So if you can find a utility that can deal with .dmg, you could be in luck.

    Google Stuffit Expander, there is a PC version.

    I spent a good part of the day trying out several methods of getting this to work. As far as I can tell a .dmg is a Disk Image. Well i tried several tools that can read .dmg images but none have been very successful. If anyone else has some luck then please share.

    This freeware command line utility will convert DMG to ISO.

    I'd like to point out that the original poster is none other than my 'real life' cousin. :) Thanks for the great tip, Johnny!

    The program has worked fine for me. Keep in mind that the .dmg from the NIN website most definitely uses the OSX file system and won't be readable on a PC.

    very interesting stuff

    I wonder if others will do this sort of thing in the future ...

    Someone with a Mac can make a conversion for you. I just can't move 70 meg in and out of my net access ... I'm on slooooow net ... :(

    Well, I asked a mac user at work to see if they could help me out and of course they don't have the latest version of garageband :evil:

    Hopefully they will be able to procure 2.0 and rido the audio and midi out for me to be able to play with it.....Damn Reznor....


    OK, so no I have resorted to emulating OS X on my PC. lets see how this turns out...

    This is maybe the greatest composition ever:

    Good for a laugh, but it didn't take any finesse to make those two work together. Don't you just love non-modulating compositions?

    Thanks Reggie. :)

    Well, hopefully you will find some other things to use it for afterwards. I hear those things are expensive. Except for the little Zip drive-lookin ones.
