The program, called “Feedback”, is a chart editor for Activision’s Guitar Hero series. With it, you can add your own songs to the finger-flexing music title, like Master of Puppets demonstrated here.

Now, you may have heard of Feedback before. But what you probably didn’t know is that it’s made by two Aussie developers – one from Pandemic and the other Krome Studios. The pair has just released to the tool for free, and you can download it from the official website.

The site also has comprehensive instructions on how to use the utility, which requires a PC running Windows 2000, XP or Vista. The latest version of DirectX 9 is a must as well.

There’s a press release and a screenshot after the jump, if you feel like taking a squiz.

Popular guitar hero editor now free at

Brisbane, February 14, 2008:
Fans of Guitar Hero now have the power to create, edit and upload their own tracks to Guitar Hero.

The editor has proved a huge hit with over 50 000 users already taking Guitar Hero into their own hands, creating literally thousands of custom songs.

The Feedback Editor includes a simple note syncing interface, customisable Multiplayer, support for both ps2 and 360 controllers, Animation and lighting events, and even multi language support.

Created solely by a Senior Engine programmer at Brisbane’s Krome Studios (Developers of Viva Piniata Party Animals and upcoming title Star Wars: The Force Unleashed) Feedback was created when the designer couldn’t find Metallica- Master of Puppets in the retail version but still found a way to make his favourite track playable.
br/>The Editor is now available absolutely free at and we hope that you take the chance to create that guitar hero experience that you have been dreaming about.
