Mex;2823894 said:They've stated that the peer review has nothing to do with the song itself, just how it's charted. So it's not like crappy songs are going to get filtered out, just badly charted ones.So to the OP, in a sense, yes EVERY song will make it through provided it's charted properly.
trg007;2824330 said:I'm hoping it'll be a little more than just the charts. I mean, if I recorded myself banging on trash can lids and made an accurate chart of it, that doesn't mean it should get through.
DookieMan;2824309 said:That's good. I agree with Knuckles, I hope they're pretty picky. I don't want things like 4 note chords and things be off time with the music.
Knucklesdude;2824397 said:Well 4-note chords to me would be blatantly obvious. By extremely picky, I'm talking about having all the right notes in all the right places. And if the chart accurately represents what the musician is actually playing.I expect that a pro reviewer could go into a midi file and place a marker on every note/location that they spot an error and tell exactly what the problem is (or fix it themselves). And after those are fixed and it's tested again, it could be handed to another reviewer, and so forth.That's my ideal of peer review, a sort of checks & balances with the author and the reviewers, but let's wait and see.

HMXEnosity;2825319 said:You can not review any music that you've submitted yourself.A certain amount of reviewers need to pass a song before it gets to the store. It's more than 1, yes.
