    Will Battle of Egos include the "intro" found in this video? Hopefully.

    I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say the inclusion of Children of Nova, Andromeda and now this Winter Crescent totally makes up for the extreme lack of Dream Theater ;)

    Unfortunately not. The intro is the one song off the album the band doesn't want us to do. I'm hoping they'll change their minds once their songs start selling, I'd love to have it in to complete the album.

    Maybe if people ask them nicely, they may give us the song as well. They love their fans so maybe they'll consider it. I'd love to work on that intro.

    Happy Thursday guys! Thursdays are an exciting day for RBN, since all the new stuff comes out today! I think we’ll make our announcements on Thursdays from now on. We have no new releases this week, but we anticipate one very soon. We’re hoping to see “Expert Mode” by LeetStreet Boys out sometime next week! It’s still in review, but we’re optimistic about its passing.

    Anyways, announcements. Last time, we gave you a few preview vids, but we left out Rainbowdragoneyes due to a problem with the video. We fixed it, and here is a preview of Heavy Weather – The Storm ov The Undead! Shown is the 2x Bass Pedal version of the song. Both versions will be making their way to Peer Review soon!

    Rainbowdragoneyes has also released a promo video for his Primordial Booze album, now available in limited-edition hard copy complete with Certificate ov Authenticity numbered 1 through 50! That’s right, only 50 copies were made and a few are already gone, so act fast! If you order this hard copy, and write something about yourself in the Note to Seller at checkout, you will receive a personalized limerick from Rainbowdragoneyes himself! There’s also options for adding in...other things…go check it out for yourself.

    Those of you who keep up with RBN news will no doubt have seen “One-Night-Stand Man” by Daryle Stephen Ackerman come out during RBN1. We are proud to announce that we are bringing an additional SIX of Daryle’s songs to RBN, with the possibility of more to come after that! These tracks for the most part are pretty piano-heavy, so Pro Keys enthusiasts will want to check these out! One song even has rhythm guitar authored to keys! That’s right, we went there. Check out our blog post for more info on all these songs.

    This next one is rather big, and will come as a surprise to some of you. Courtesy of Equal Vision Records, we are bringing “Caraphernelia” by Pierce the Veil to the Rock Band Network! We have taken over this project, and have fully updated the song with 3-part vocal harmonies and keyboard charts! The keys are rather sparse, admittedly, but there is a solo! Featuring Jeremy McKinnon of A Day To Remember as a guest vocalist, this track is a must-have for any Rock Band player. We’re putting it through a round of testing, and soon after it should be on its way to the store at last! Check out the preview here! (Note: This song does have proper practice sections. This video just isn’t showing them.)

    Finally, we’d like to announce that we’re hiring! Yes, our small team has been doing good on its own so far, but we’re starting to get a lot more songs to work on. Like, a LOT more songs. Full albums and stuff. So we need some more hands on deck. If you’d like to apply to be an author, fill out our application form! We’ve got lots of cool songs to work on, and we’d love your help getting them ready to go!

    That’s all for now. We still have a lot more unannounced stuff coming, including two awesome chiptune artists (one of which is bringing a full album’s worth of goodness) and a partnership with an awesome local record label that’s bringing some really intense stuff. My only hint: it’s not metal. Begin the speculation. :)

    Thank you for your support so far, and have an awesome day!

    I couldn't agree more. I'm glad to help it finally come out.

    One more piece of last-minute news...Expert Mode has passed Peer Review and will be in next week's store update! Guitarists and keyboard players should warm up their hands for this one, you'll need endurance to pass these songs on Expert Mode. :)

    So let me start by saying Thank You! Ever since this song was announced and it was made clear that it would have harmonies & keyboard I was even more excited than before. I'm also very excited to see that Jeremy'svocals are charted seperately per the preview video.

    So other than that your post above if I'm reading correct means I'll playing this song next week?

    If you mean the Pierce the Veil song, not yet. We are going to upload that song for one quick round of testing this week to make sure all is good before we pass it to the label for Peer Review. We'll do everything we can to make sure it passes quick.

    The LeetStreet Boys song, "Expert Mode" is currently our only offering in the next update. We may be able to squeeze at least one more song in to join it, but it won't be Caraphernelia.

    New thread for RBN2 releases!

    This is the official Chart Toppers Authoring News, Previews, and Releases thread. Here, I will maintain a list of all songs we have available, as well as all songs we can announce. I will do my best to keep this updated as often as possible, and of course there will be updates each time a song of ours is released.

    We hope to bring some really amazing stuff to the table, and we hope you enjoy them. If you've bought our songs, the staff at CTA thanks you and hopes that you've enjoyed our offerings.

    ALL SONGS RELEASED BY CHART TOPPERS AUTHORING CONTAIN PRO DRUMS. If no toms are charted, the song has no toms.

    Since RB3's new tiering option doesn't fully represent the difficulty of RBN songs, I will be putting tiers next to all our released songs on this list so you know what you're in for.

    Updated the OP to reflect the addition of Battle of Egos Intro. There will be no 2x Bass Pedal version due to insufficient kicks.

    With this addition, we can now say we are bringing the "Battle of Egos" demo to RBN in its entirety. That would be our second ever announced full album! (The first being Shylo Elliott's "Proof of Concept," which is four song releases away from completion!)

    Awesome. Many thanks!

    Arcanon, is the intro going to be fused with Part 1? Would be kind of odd to play this "intro" separately.

    For the moment at least, it will not be. We still have yet to receive stems for the intro, and Part I has already been completed and put into playtesting. We'll explore all our options, but chances are high that the intro will be a separate song and the ending of the intro made so it doesn't stop suddenly. I'll know more once stems are in our hands.

    Alrighty then.

    Hopefully it can all work out with putting it with Part 1. Not to mention it'd also been sort of dumb paying 80-160msp just for an "intro". Even if it is a 3 or so minutes long.

    Two new things to talk about today:

    -"Battle of Egos Intro" by Winter Crescent will be a separate song on its own, and will not have a 2x Bass Pedal version. It, as well as all Winter Crescent tracks from "Battle of Egos," will be 80 points. The Intro is a full song in its own right, spanning almost 4 minutes and featuring some great instrument work and some awesome harmonies. I can assure you the song is definitely worth the price on its own.
    -"Expert Mode" by LeetStreet Boys is out today! For only 80 points, grab this awesome song featuring blistering keys, two face-melting guitar solos, and epic vocal harmonies! The band is running a promotional campaign which includes a story arc for their webcomic based on the song! Go check that out, it's pretty cool.

    Hope to have more announcements for you guys soon!

    The copyright issues for those songs might be a bit hard to work through, but we'll see what we can do. I can't confirm or deny anything at this point though.

    I got the song "Expert Mode" and I think it's an ok song, but I only got it because I thought it'd be difficult on expert guitar because it's devil tiered on guitar but I was dissapointed and I'm just saying this because I don't like it when people over tier songs on guitar IMO (maybe it's not overtiered to some people) but if this is devil tiered - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WK-Npth4o7g then shouldn't it look something like this in guitar difficulty - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8NOW6-ccfE

    So now all devil-tiered songs have to be Diachylon (aka instant fail)?

    If it had been on disc, I could see Expert Mode being the start of the Impossible tier.

    If it had been on disc, I could see Expert Mode being the start of the Impossible tier.

    I was just saying that I was dissapointed because I though that a devil-tiered song meant it'd be difficult, which is fun for myself, but the chart wasn't fun and it is no where near the difficulty of some devil tiered songs (like Diachylon). So I just hope that songs of this (expert mode's) difficulty on guitar don't get over tiered again, because I thought devil tiered meant some of the hardest songs in the game and "expert mode" is no where near the difficulty of some songs that are 5 on guitar and not even devil tiered like - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUmZ7Qor7Ys
    and for myself who plays quite a bit for difficulty which the tiers are for (and can confuse you if over/under tiered into buying a song you don't want) mostly people who are looking for a specific difficulty, Diachylon is no insta fail.

    But I do agree that if "expert mode" was on the RB3 game disc that it should be on Impossible difficulty. Because the whole RB3 game on guitar was quite easy, so this song would be a challenge in the on disc game.

    Also, I'm not really wanting or trying to argue, but just saying that I think "Expert Mode" is over-tiered but not trying to start an argument and I sortof like the song but it wasn't what I expected when looking at the difficulty tier.

    I guess what I should do (and will do) in the future is instead of basing if I might get a track basede on it's difficulty tier I'll look at the chart on youtube.com before purchasing and before I thought I could rely on the tier but I guess I just live and learn, no hard feelings? I'm sorry if I came off as a person who just complains and wants to argue, but I was just a little frusterated that I expected a bit too much out of a track because of it's tier, sorry if I bothered you.

    Not all devil tier songs are dumb difficulty. Devil tier is reserved for any song that's difficult to a point where people would fail it easily, witch is why EM has the guitar tiering it does. (The solos are killer to the point of failing for the average player)

    BTW, Diachylon *does* look like insta-fail for the typical player.

    Also, for most people, difficulty =/= fun.

    Reaper, like every other RBN1 track in the Impossible tier, got bumped down to 5 in RB3 due to a change in the tiering system. So, not a good comparison.

    This, this, this. If you sort by difficulty, then go to about the middle of the 5th tier and see all the RBN tracks lumped together with some Chaotrope songs, those are RBN1 tracks that are supposed to be devil tiered. Also, tiering is always subjective. Just because a song isn't Chaotrope or DragonForce insane doesn't mean it shouldn't be devil tiered. I personally haven't seen the chart, so I can't specifically comment on it.

    I can hope you enjoy the song regardless of the difficulty or lack thereof. If you want to be safe from now on you should get the preview first or look up a YouTube video of the chart, if a video has been uploaded, that is.

    Reaper, like every other RBN1 track in the Impossible tier, got bumped down to 5 in RB3 due to a change in the tiering system. So, not a good comparison.

    Yeah I learned that yesterday, and yeah I now agree that "expert mode" should be in the devil tier, but my problem was that in the past and when I was looking for a challenge. I'd look at devil tiered songs and saw this and got it. I was dissapointed because I thought it would be more difficult (my mistake). But now I have learned to look up the chart on youtube first, and yes that's sortof a no brainer, but I thought that devil tiered songs would be the difficulty level I was looking for, but I was wrong. So I hope I didn't bother anyone and was just saying I was disapointed and not trying to start any arguments though now when I think about it. It was sortof bound to happen though I didn't do it intentionally. So everything's ok?

    This, this, this. If you sort by difficulty, then go to about the middle of the 5th tier and see all the RBN tracks lumped together with some Chaotrope songs, those are RBN1 tracks that are supposed to be devil tiered. Also, tiering is always subjective. Just because a song isn't Chaotrope or DragonForce insane doesn't mean it shouldn't be devil tiered. I personally haven't seen the chart, so I can't specifically comment on it.

    I actually enjoy expert mode a bit, but I mainly bought it for a challenge. I enjoy many songs that aren't difficult but only got "expert mode", in the first place for a challenge. Though it is a bit challenging, it is still a bit fun to play like other songs that aren't so difficult. Yes, I don't know why, sometimes I do look songs up on youtube to see charts, but this time I hadn't, my mistake. Though the song's not bad at all, so it's not a really bad mistake. Just a bit of a dissapointment, and I was wrong to say it shouldn't be devil tiered, but I was just a bit dissapointed and not thinking things through, sorry.

    Happy Thursday to all! Lots of cool stuff coming out today. Unfortunately, nothing from us, though we hope to change that soon!

    Anyways, we have four new things to announce. Only one is a new artist announcement though, so we’ll save that one for last.

    First off, we have affiliated ourselves with Killer Hype, a service that connects artists to a large amount of opportunities in the music industry, such as film/TV licensing and record label deals! As part of our partnership, any artist that signs up to have songs on the RBN with Chart Toppers Authoring and publishes at least one song to the Rock Band Network will have the option to receive a free month of Killer Hype’s services! This applies to all of our current artists with music on the RBN as well! I am confident that our partnership will lead to new opportunities for our two companies and the artists we represent.

    This one will interest you guys looking for some music to buy. Winter Crescent’s demo CD, “Battle of Egos,” is now only $1 at CDBaby for an MP3 download!

    Next up, I’d like to announce a little contest on Twitter I came up with. You see, on Twitter we only have 58 followers. That’s practically nothing! So, here’s what I’m gonna do. Every 50 followers (starting at 100), I’m going to put out a trivia question about our artists, in order of release. So the first question will be about Shylo Elliott. The questions won’t be easy giveaways, but they won’t be difficult either; a simple Google search can find answers. First person to tweet @ChartToppers with the correct answer will get 2 codes for 160 MSP. That’s 4 Chart Toppers songs! (2 if you’re waiting for our 160 MSP stuff.) So follow us on Twitter, get your friends to follow us, and get our count up! Why do I care so much about follower count, you ask? The more people that follow us, the more people find out about all of these awesome artists we’re putting out!

    This leads us to our announcement of the day! We are going to bring a full album from Massachusetts chiptune artist Active Knowledge! The 9-track album, titled INFINITE, is his latest creation and features some really cool instrumental chipmusic that combines mellow and party to create some really spacey tunes that are a blast to play on Rock Band! Active Knowledge is the founder of the Boston8Bit chiptune collective, and you can expect at least one more Boston8Bit artist to come to RBN really soon! Read more about it and check out the THREE preview videos we have ready for you!

    That’s all the news for this week. Get hyped, get following, and get rocking!
