83 and counting...

edited December 2009 in The Rock Band Network
I was just cleaning out my Rock Band network folder on my computer and discovered that there are currently 83 tracks in various states of peer review, playtesting, etc.

Wow.

I knew there's been quite a few, but I didn't think we were almost at 100 already.

At this pace there's going to be thousands of tracks available in a very short period.

Makes me wonder what amount is going to be there when Rock Band Network goes live.


While my wallet gently weeeee-eeeeeps. :eek::D

    maybe you should make a thread keeping track of what songs/bands are in peer review/passed peer review.

    While there is technically nothing wrong with doing that, some of the groups feel that someone other than themselves announcing a song is sort of a dick move. This is actually one of the reasons that we are going to make sure to announce our tracks before putting them into playtest.

    Yeah make sure you do that if you're not comfortable with others talking about songs that you haven't personally announced, as HMX has stated that once a song is in the network it can be discussed openly.

    I'll make a thread but it might take a while to get all the information going...

    what's the number up to now? also, is there any way to start an updated list of the songs/artists in beta testing? I'm guessing someone will when the beta opens, which is aparently very soon.

    That's totally awesome. Sort of surprised Speck didn't end up in some sort of generic "Other" category, though, or is that what "None" implies?

    Also, if the number is down from 83 to 53, that means a number of songs failed out of the process. Says a lot about the high standards RBN peer-review has!

    I've got over 100 songs that have been in the review process in my RBN folder now.

    There's about 69 going through review proces now.

    Now the missing ones could be getting retooled before they are resubmitted, or the author of the tracks just got fed up with the track not passing, or any other of a number of things.

    So while the number in review is down now, doesn't mean that the missing songs are gone for good.

    I'm actually kind of curious how many of those songs are NOT going to have full 4-man band charts. Which are missing an instrument or two?

    None of those I listed are missing any instruments; not even the hip-hop track. :)

    There have been less than a handful of songs in the RBN thus far that don't have all 4 instruments.

    It means there's nothing listed in its genre-subgenre category. I don't know what happened there

    I remember a couple that don't have vocals, and there was one(can't remember which one), that had one bass note at the very beginning, and then nothing else for the entire song.
