Dear Miss Management,
Testament are a heavy-as-**** band, what with songs like Trial By Fire and Electric Crown. They were one of the great thrash bands of the late 80's, and I notice that you are their manager. Because of this, I was wondering if Testament would be interested in participating in Rock Band Network. Basically, what it is is you can take master recordings, make note charts for them and put them on the video game Rock Band. This is an expansion of the Rock Band music store for downloadable songs, featuring over 200 different artists, including Testament. Since October 2009, over 60 million downloadable content song purchases have been made in the Rock Band music store. Rock Band Network is an expansion of this, except this time, the actual artists are the charters! You can check out how it works by visiting the RBN website at creators.rockband.com.
Remember, an Xbox 360, a Microsoft XNA subscription (which costs 99 bucks a year), a copy of Rock Band 2, your master recordings, Reaper Digital Audio Workstation (along with the plugins!), and Magma Transfer/Packaging Tool (for transferring it to the Xbox 360 in the first place) is needed. To get Reaper, its plugins, and magma by following this link. Also, if they don't know how to make midi charts, they can always contact people who will gladly do it for them. Some examples are Ozone Entertainment, which you can contact by e-mailing their boss at [email protected]
, and Rock Gamer Studios, which you can reach by contacting [email protected]
Also, if you want to submit songs with the words "****" or "****", or other vulgar words with the exception of "ass" in them, you'll have to edit those words out due to RB being a T-rated game. For more information about making songs for RBN, go here.
I hope this can serve as a new way of promoting Testament's music.
