I imagine this is because a) harmonizing with people you can't hear is really difficult and b) the network latency between your console and theirs would make it really tough to keep sync... you'd be singing and they'd be hearing it a few seconds later.
Izemann;3021578 said:That seriosly is ver bad! GH5 has it so you can have 4 singers online. Why can't rock band beatles have it? I mean it has it in local but what about online???
SonicRocker15X;3021981 said:Um... Four singers playing the same part being silenced online is one thing. Three people harmonizing (Harmonizing is hard when there's no real life voice to harmonize with) is another.
imadork;3022196 said:I know nothing about GH5, but when you play with 4 singers, could there also be a drummer, guitarist, and bassist playing? Or is it any combination of instruments as long as there's no more than 4 players?Would the reason why TBRB has the three vocal parts tied to one controller be an issue with console differences? I know the PS3 accomodates up to 7 controllers, so it was a surprise to me that they linked them, but I realized the Wii only connects up to 4. What about the 360?
Aldex;3026311 said:The technical issues make a ton of sense and I think if it were easy, it would have been in the game. That said, Vox score dueling works, and works well. You may not be able to hear the other person harmonizing, but if two-way dueling is technically possible, three-way dueling (trueling?) would be the same as online harmonizing, don't you think?And even if there is a four part instrument and controller limitation, if all you wanted to do was sing with two other people, that's three controllers.

beingmused;3026548 said:Even standard network latency times would prevent that from working. The only way 3 singers online could have worked is if they made it so singers had set roles, and could only sing their own assigned part.
MaxRenn82;3026771 said:I still think you should be allowed to pick WHICH part you want and sing just that. It'd be nice for the people who don't have friends who will sing Beatles with them. It's a cool idea and I guess it brings people together, but not all are that fortunate to have 2 friends who can/or will sing with you. I have a hard time believing that it's latency issues.
Izemann;3021550 said:Is there a way to host a band quickplay and lets say I'm playing as the vocalist, can I invite another singer to play with me?
beingmused;3026548 said:Dueling is easy. Harmonizing is impossible, because all 3 players can sing all 3 lines. That means that each system would have to keep track of all 3 singer's progress in the phrase INSTANTANEOUSLY and be able to switch back and forth seamlessly. Even standard network latency times would prevent that from working. The only way 3 singers online could have worked is if they made it so singers had set roles, and could only sing their own assigned part.
karmalord;3025923 said:So doing a 3 part harmony could happen online if the three that were singin were all on the same console and the other player was online playing an instrument only.
Aldex;3027429 said:Yes, locking into a set role (lead melody, first harmony, second harmony) is what I was envisioning. And it's an acceptable tradeoff to me to get online play. After all, guitarists have to lock into bass or guitar at the start of the song and can't change midstream.
BustaUppa;3027696 said:After a song you can press a button (back/select I think) to get a detailed vocal breakdown, and for each mic it actually shows how much of each vocal track was sung. So you can try to stick with a single vocal role, then check the detailed vocal breakdown after the song to see how well you did! This is almost like the "locking into a set role" that you spoke of (you just have to use the honor system and it won't affect scoring), unless I misunderstood what you meant!
