Hi I am looking for the infamous Frances the Mute Pro Tools session files. Frances the Mute is my all time favorite album and I would love to have this ao I could hear every guitar part clearly. In my search I did find the separate wma files but the only post that I found mentioning the actual pro tools files is this one:

The post is ten years old and the download link of course doesn't work anymore. So if anyone has these files or knows where to find them I would be extremely grateful!

I might still have those somewhere, but I think only the acoustic intro from cygnus got leaked along with Cedrics vocals. Nothing else. I remember a bunch of the vocal files were just Cedric joking around and beatboxing.

I do have those somewhere, it's only Sarcophagi though. I doubt there was anything else leaked.

 

I'll upload them as soon as I find it.

There are apparently people who have Miranda too.  Maybe others?  I can't remember.  Not really sure why Sarcophagi is the only one that became publicly available.

Aren't you thinking of the acoustic Miranda demo, where it's just Omar and Cedric, which does end up in beatbox ?

Nah, he joked around a bunch on those sarcophagi recordings too. Maybe no beatboxing though, it's been too long since i've heard them.

It was interesting to hear how many takes Omar needed to record Sarcophagi and how rough his playing style sounds on its own. It also revealed how they applied Autotune to Cedric's voice.

This remix was constructed from those files:

There is a version of L'Via L'Viaquez with isolated tracks that they did for either Guitar Hero or Rock Band.. I believe it only has about 4 isolated tracks though with some of them grouped.

In case somebody is interested in the wma files. Somebody once converted the .wav files to smaller .wma files and feelsgoodman re-uploaded them a while back.

 

Good enough for me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Good luck finding the actual pro tools file.

you wont find anything more than the .wma files of the sarchopagi sessions. the .wav files and the pro tools files exist, but they arent commonly traded. back in 06-07 Miranda's session folder was also uploaded to Oink, but it was like 50 gigs so no one really downloaded it and then oink got shut down.
