The Beatles RockBand decrypted

UPDATE: WogBlog has received a message from a person who shall remain nameless, and who has the following comment to the original article below: "The files that are circulating are NOT decrypted but recorded with sound cards and special homebrew software from wii and xbox".

The sound files of The Beatles:RockBand were finally decrypted or cracked in March, after a lot of effort by computers and minds. 23 of the decrypted tracks leaked in March and May, but were spread around sparingly, only reaching the most eager fans. Now they are slowly starting to spread and reach more and more people. Each song is presented as a multitrack MOGG file, with instrument separation. This means that people who have access to these can "play George Martin", and fade up and down the various elements of the song, by using the well-known free audio program "Audacity" or other similar sound editors.
The RockBand multitracks aren't necessarily like they were in the original sixties multis, as Giles Martin has been using various techniques to do further separation of otherwise interlocked instruments from the original multis. WogBlog has obtained a list of the songs that has been decrypted so far. Many of these have yet to be spread on the internet, but the ones with an asterisk (*) are currently being traded and shared among collectors and fans in the know.
