So is anyone here going to try to get a song on to the Rock Band Network?

Personally, I'd love to do this but my technical skills are very subpar, so I think I'm going to look for some help and put together some cleaner records and give that a shot.

Of course I would like to although most of my songs aren't exactly the sort of thing people would want to play.

Jonathan Mann really wants to do it. I sent him the info about the first company that's offering a service to take your multitrack recording and do the rest of the work. There seems to be a significant amount of work involved.

I might give it a shot, considering that a friend and I used to port some songs to Guitar Hero for the Playstation 2, using very basic tools and hacking the original game (it's documented somewhere online...), and Harmonix is giving you proper tools to work with... it shouldn't be all that difficult for me to do. Making the song FUN to play on the other hand... I dunno.

Would anyone be interested in doing a Songfight Collaboration band with the intent on not only rocking but getting into the Rock Band Network? (And some sweet extra promotion for the site that we all love, Songfight!)

So essentially, the Rock Band 3 Pro guitar is a fully functional Fender Strat with MIDI. That's a win.

http://www.plasticaxe.com/2010/06/11/ro ... ripherals/

I am loving this pro-mode thing.

A quote from one of the developers:
"We’ve designed an interface that covers everything from single notes and single-note runs, to power chords, to full barre chords and open chords. It gets pretty complex. We have arpeggio language — it does take you all the way through to Expert, which is note-for-note authoring…for ridiculous songs! Like, “Crazy Train,” or “Rainbow in the Dark,” or whatever — these songs that have blistering solos — in order to beat those songs in Pro mode on Expert, you will have to learn the song."

This is great for my friends who play and complain that it's not like playing real guitar, here's a real guitar and all the notes. Plus for someone who wants to learn, that's an awesome library of songs to learn from.

Oh, nice, they also have a MIDI adapter so you can use a MIDI drum kit or keyboard with it. Which is great because I already have several of both.

The face of music gaming is changing as Activision pretty much cut their losses today and ended Guitar Hero.

"Due to continued declines in the music genre, the company will disband Activision Publishing's Guitar Hero business unit and discontinue development on its Guitar Hero game for 2011."

Yes, if only they'd actually been innovating in gameplay and adding new things to do rather than simply pushing out endless DLC and themed expansion packs in order to oversaturate the brand as rapidly as possible.

I mean I'm still not a fan of Rock Band 3 (mostly because they are STILL tied to the notion of keys just making the tracks cut in and out rather than actually playing the instruments, which is even more ridiculously obvious now that there's something resembling a keyboard), but at least they're doing new things with it.

Maybe when Konami finally releases the first PS3 Beatmania people here will import it (since PS3 is region-free) and see what they've been missing out on for the last 14 years.

Time to dust off the plastic guitars-

Glenn Case's "Sweet Canadian Mullet" was added to Rock Band Network this week!
