Hey there, I'm wauterboi. For those of you who do not know me, I create experimental music and I would absolutely love to work on creating songs for Rock Band. The only issue I have is the fact that I lack the following:
Yeah. I'm not going to go on and on and rant on about, "ZOMG THEY MAKE IT FOR X-BOX 360 BUT NOT FOR PS3?!11?!" because I could assume that a port to PS3 would be especially hard. I only see it happening with X-Box 360 due to XNA, and the PS3 lacks an equivalent.
- X-Box Live
- Rock Band for the X-Box 360
- Rock Band guitar and drumset
- Money to get the tools
Plus, if I were to ask, "Hello mother, I would like to obtain a copy of Rock Band 2, another guitar for Rock Band, another drumset for Rock Band, a subscription to X-Box Live, and a subscription to XNA," I don't believe I would get the wanted results.
Anyway, I've tried looking for information surrounding the idea of song creation and the PS3 and I've gone without luck... on the Rock Band forum at least. I've checked else where, and it seems that only the RBN Store will arrive to the PS3. This saddened me, because I have the ability to do the songs as I have musical knowledge, I know how to use MIDI and MIDI files, I've made my own music for fun for other games like Osu! and Stepmania, and really, I would love to play my music on Rock Band.
So what I would like to ask is is there any chance of being able to create music for the PS3 or a possible work around? (For instance, perhaps testing the songs on the PC... I don't know how well that'd work out, but I've got my Rock Band drumset to work with the PC and send out MIDI messages. :P) Is there any hope for me?
The only other option would be to go off to one of those stupid authoring businesses that I keep hearing about... I honestly think that's ridiculous. Give me a day, a soda, and a pair of headsets and I'll give you a song in less than half of the week. (Given I have the missing tools.)
