TheOzone;3791494 said:I own a stage kit and personally love it. And as an author and now knowing how the programming works for it in the tracks, I appreciate it even more. It really just makes playing more fun for some reason. Adds an extra something to the environment.Oh, I just want to let people know that not one, but TWO Ozone Entertainment songs are in the Harmonix Picks:"Five More Minutes" by Counterfeit Pennies"American Hero" by Ron WassermanThis makes it much easier to navigate to and purchase these great tracks. Huge thanks to the guys/girls at Harmonix who nominated the songs. You guys rock! Now if Ozone Entertainment gets a Message of the Day eventually too, my head may asplode.
TheOzone;3795814 said:Get him interested, and I'll gladly do it. I can't be doing all this stuff myself.
T-Hybrid;3795982 said:OZone, since you seem most responsive to requests and work pretty hard at getting some more interesting bands...is there any chance that I could convince you to contact punter Chris Kluwe of the Minnesota Vikings? The guy is a huge video game fan (it's almost legend status here in Minny) and also a musician (his band's name is "Tripping Icarus"). For the longest time he'd do events at stores like Best Buy and the like playing Guitar Hero/Rock Band against people...so we know he's a fan of the franchise.People have already mentioned RBN to him...and I'm not sure how the process works but it'd be awesome if somebody get get in touch with him to see if he'd want to bring songs to the series.
The-Dude1212;3796881 said:I'll get right on it, then!Outside of the standard stuff I should write to him (RBN, what it is, suggesting you as RBN author), is there anything else you can think of that I should add that really entices authors when you contact them?
TheOzone;3797731 said:I'm not all that fancy. I pretty much tell them what it is, give them links for reference (such as the Creators site), and then see if they'd like to talk deeper about it. As long as you give him an honest look at what RBN is, if he shows any interest I'll get into the gritty details. You can direct him to my email address [email]email@example.com[/email].
Dear Mr. Beigott (label manager),I am writing to you here about the Rock Band Network, and if you and Haddaway would be interested in getting his music into the Rock Band video game.Rock Band Network is an initiative by developer Harmonix to allow artists ranging from the obscure to the superstars and everywhere inbetween to let their music be authored and played in the Rock Band video game. A lot more indepth information can be found at the official press release and at the Rock Band Network creators club.There are also several professional authoring companies that have experience with the software involved that I can recommend.I hope this interests you, and hope to hear from you soon.Sincerely,Dave (last name)
AlexFlame;3798569 said:Hey Ozone. Is there any way that you can get Blue (Da Ba Dee) on the PS3 as soon as possible when it releases? Cause I really want that song! Please?
TubaDude49;3798746 said:Ozone, I took your advice and contacted SEGA about the Crush 40 tracks. I won't go into any detail about it here, as saying anything else concerning it would be private, but if you need to know anymore, PM me.
TheOzone;3801167 said:I'm sort of shocked there's been absolutely zero reaction to me posting a Sophie B. Hawkins song in playtesting today.I now have two Grammy-nominated artists testing, with one of the songs being a nominated song.
Lord_of_Sushi;3804888 said:Looks like there's some pretty nice releases coming up (especially "Done" and "Blue (Da Ba Dee)". Now the only thing I have to do is wait for "Five More Minutes" and the Ron Wasserman songs to be brought over to the PS3.By the way, would it be OK to contact a band and, if they were interested in RBN, refer them to you?
RingmasterJ5;3844446 said:I'm new to the Rock Band forums, but I might be able to get you someone big. It probably won't happen, but this person has expressed intrest in RB/GH, and probably hasn't heard of RBN. There is probably no WAY that this person would say no if I actually find a WAY to contact this person. I repeat:no W A Y.(hint,hint)
General Lein979;3848592 said:Such subtly you have. People have tried and failed.
TubaDude49;3848602 said:Actually, I don't get it, perhaps I've never heard of the band, or I just can't understand the acronym, but could you say who it is?
