Rock Band 3 maintains a song cache containing information about every song you own. This tool looks at that cache and pulls out the information, giving you (hopefully) everything you need for a song booklet without having to check off which songs you own on a website. Right now it can only produce tab-delimited sets of data for use in Excel/etc., but Excel is actually pretty good for song booklets! If you've never made things look pretty in Excel, Google around for "excel print formatting".

This tool displays the correct number of vocals parts for songs with harmony upgrades from the Rock Band Harmonies Project.

How to use:

  1. If it's not already there, move your song cache from your hard drive to a flash drive. Its official name is Rock Band 3 Song Cache.
  2. Using Party Buffalo or a similar tool, extract the song cache from the flash drive. Put it wherever.
  3. Your cache should now be a file on your PC like any other file. It's currently a CON file, though; CON files are packages (almost like ZIP or RAR), and we want the tasty caramel center inside the CON.
  4. Download Le Fluffie for RB3 or another CON manipulation program. Open the CON file and extract the "songcache" file inside, which should be the only file in there. You can now delete the CON (the file from step 2) if you want.
  5. On this page, attach the newly-extracted inner cache file, pick the columns and options you want, and click Create.
  6. If you picked XLS as the file extension, Excel will warn you that it's not a proper Excel file. You can ignore that warning.
