I'm already having three songs, and I was thinking how I could just do it all myself, but that's what I thought when I first heard of the Rock Band Network, then I saw how much money it took. Plus, I don't have an XBox 360. (But I'm getting closer to being able to buy one.)
Plus, I was thinking about how much I could do by charting other peoples' songs. It would be great! But I don't have an XBox GOLD account for previewing the song, or that AppHub to even upload a song.
Anyway, the only time I would be in the RBN for the money is if it were MY songs. If I were an authoring group, I would do it all for free, and give the band all the money we earn from the RBN.
I have done charting for fun on a Rock Band Clone called Frets On Fire (They use the same MIDI stuff as Rock Band does, so I use REAPER).
SO, HERE ARE MY QUESTIONS:
1.) Could I work with an authoring group? I do real well as an author. And I'll join for free, I really don't want a cut of the price unless it's my song. The joy of just working on a song, knowing I charted some or all of it is all I need. I really enjoy authoring.
2.) If I do work with an authoring group, is it ok if I contact a band in joining? I know a couple out there who would want to be in the RBN. Plus, I do want to chart some of it.
I have read the Docs and everything. I know what and what not to do. I just like the joy of working with the groups, not too much of the money unless it's my song.
