Also for those wondering when songs will start getting released into the store again :
There's nothing coming out on 2.0 launch day, and actually Tuesday's update will probably be the last update for RBN for a good many weeks (I'd say to the bare minimum 3, and that's probably pushing it.)
See there is nothing new in testing now, and won't be until Tuesday. That is IF everything goes smoothly with 2.0 coming online.
If everything does go smoothly, everything will have a bare minimum of 2 weeks of playtesting, not to mention however long Peer Review takes after that. Now couple in the fact that there is a BUNCH of new features including pro keys that are going to take a while for us to get a proper handle (us being the authoring community in general), and the fact that there are probably a limited number of people that can properly test Pro keys, and there might not be any new tracks for quite a while as we adjust to all this.
The reason there were so many tracks when RBN1.0 opened was because we were actually all authoring and testing since September, and the store didn't go live till March.
Now I'm not saying that is going to be the amount of time until new releases start flowing again, but I wouldn't expect anything new to hit the RBN store for at least a month.
One thing I will say about RBN 2.0 is I hope that we're not going to see like 95% keyboard intensive songs now from the labels, etc. It's something I could really see happening, at least at first.
What's all this hate for Keys guys, if a song has keys, then they must be charted. Willing to buy new songs for my new peripheral, hope HMX has good plans regarding RBN 2.0 for us PS3 users too!
Gowan would be fun on Keys! comon 2.0!
Wouldn't this change to RBN2 be a great opportunity to reduce the price of older RBN songs to make them more attractive compared to the new ones with all the new features....? Have there been any price changes lately?
