Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: Modder Adds Custom Songs To Beat Saber On Oculus Quest

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Last week Brian Tate, creator of Beat Saber modding group Beast Saber, posted footage to YouTube showing a custom track running on Beat Saber for the Oculus Quest, albeit with a desync between the audio and reciprocating blocks.

Since then the developer has been providing incremental updates on his progress, and after just a week after the release, Tate already has a custom song working 100% on the standalone headset.

In a video posted over the weekend entitled “Custom Beat Saber Song 100% Working On The Oculus Quest,” Tate navigates to Party Mode and plays a custom track set to the song “Good Life”  by litmus* (not included as part of the original song selection).

Currently, Quest owners have access to the 10-song Original Soundtrack Vo. 1, the 5-song Original Soundtrack Vol. 2, the 4-song Extra Pack, as well as the 10-song downloadable Monstercat Music Pack Vo. 1.

While developer Beat Games has stated it will be providing continued support in the form of new song packs, having access to the gargantuan list of hit songs featured on the Beast Saber curation list could make the Quest the headsets of choice among Beat Saber fanatics,

Offering all the content they know and love from the PC original in a cheaper, infinitely more convenient package.

Unfortunately, the project is still in its early stages, which means no word yet on when to expect a public release.

Recently. Quest owners have begun using open source programs such as Riftcat and ALVR to stream PC VR titles from their PC’s to their standalone headsets, allowing them to access the vast SteamVR catalog.

So long as users don’t mind remaining within close proximity of their computers, they’re free to access the PC version of Beat Saber and all the freedom that comes with it.

But then again, who picks up an Oculus Quest just to feel tied-down?

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
