    Sort of...it could be included in the backing tracks, but it would play throughout the whole song no matter where your crowd meter is. RBN doesn't have the same functionality that HMX has where they can have it on a separate track that only plays when the crowd meter is maxed.

    Even if RBN supported this, it would rarely if ever be used. :)

    I could see it on some live tracks, but otherwise, yeah, they'd have to record a sing along specifically.

    Perhaps in RBN 2.0 that they're debuting at E3.

    You mean like vocals percussions?

    Better something than nothing.

    *lightbulb*

    What if the "playtest membership" idea that's been going around was tied recording submissions? Playtesters could record themselves singing certain parts of a given song in the pipeline and submit them to the forums as part of 'earning' their discounted membership. Authors could list which parts are to be sung in their song description, which HMX could then compile together to form a crowd singalong to add to the song file when they do the rest of their troubleshooting during quarantine.

    I imagine it'd probably be an exorbitant amount of extra work for HMX to implement something like this, so it feels almost pointless to suggest the idea. But hey, it'd be damn spiffy if it actually happened!
