    I do admit that the mix is horrible, but as soon as I found that out it was too late for me to change it.

    Wow that guy's a douche.
    Well, thank you. Seriously though, what?

    For the record, I'm usually pretty reasonable towards RBN songs. Hell, I'm probably the only one on DLCQP who was okay with Pinballz (not that I bought it, the song isn't really my thing), but "The Big Fight" was really crossing the line. It was literally one of the worst things I've ever heard. No offense Nathaniel, but you really should try to invest in better recording software and take your songs a little more serious.

    Yeah, I'm sorry I said that. I was already in a sour mood, and to find out someone posted the video in a forum pretty much stirring others to go troll on it made me even more angry. I forgive you, and I'm sorry for calling you a douche. I would probably do the same if it were Justin Bieber or BrokenCyde.

    Are you kidding me? I think the only thing you calling him a douche did was say what everyone else is thinking. So it's not like you should be apologizing. Especially if he comes here to "explain himself" with further insults.

    "No offense, but this is one of the worst things I've ever heard"

    You can't just say no offense. Since when was the RBN a place where only certain musicians that certain people liked could get in? That's the exact opposite of what it is!

    If you were to take my word for it, I'd say this guy a total douche whose douchiness could only be surpassed by himself and, frankly, he deserves no let-up or apology. Yeah, people are entitled to their own opinion, but when it becomes mockery, it crosses a line.

    Hey gigakoops just a question how much do you typically charge bands to work on their songs? I know a couple of bands who might be interested.

    Today Levels Part 1 and Levels Part 2 by Gigakoops will hit Playtesting. Part 1 has Levels 1 and 2. This is the harder of the two parts. Levels Part 2 has Levels 3 and 4.

    And also, A Talking Fish's (I Want to Go to) Space will hit Peer Review.

    Isn't that a little confusing? Part one has parts 1 and 2 and part 2 has parts 3 and 4? Maybe you should call them parts A and B. So Part A would have Parts 1 and 2 and Part B would have 3 and 4.

    Thank you. Maybe I should do that next round. But it was suggested in the creator's forums that I put it in two parts as opposed to one large song, though I still think that'd be better.

    That's the length of Project Unknown, actually. But yeah, Levels is like four mini-instrumentals structured like progress in a video game, so it makes since for that to be separated.

    Since about the same time that one person's views on a song invalidated it for RBN.

    I don't see why that makes sense for it to be separated.

    It's really four separate songs, with a few seconds of silence between. So it would make perfect since for it to be separated.

    I do think that, from a "levels" standpoint, having 4 separate songs would make the most sense, and the second-most-logical thing to do would be one long song, so breaking it into 2 parts kind of makes the least sense. But I do agree that from a song-lenth standpoint, and a price standpoint, two parts would be the best solution, and I think when all the factors are looked at together, the two parts idea still comes out on top. So I say stick with it.

    Might I also suggest just naming the separated songs "Levels 1 and 2" and "Levels 3 and 4"? Seems like that'd make the most sense, since there's no real reason to be less straightforward about it. Especially since, as far as I can tell, there'll be no other way within the game itself to see what "levels" each song is comprised of unless they are explicit in the title.

    For the record, it wasn't just his opinion, but pretty mush a majority opinion. Even the musician didn't like it. So that's why that "song" was removed.

    Hello again, and here's my October 2011 announcement:

    I've been thinking a while about how I could make things fun around here. Well, I've decided that my next big artist should be:

    You.

    I am holding a contest called "GigakoopsRBN Write Your Own Song Contest." Here are some details:

    Write you song and submit at [email]gigakoopsrbn@gmail.com[/email] before January 1st, 2012, and I'll enter it into a public poll here on these forums. Then users can vote on the song they would want out of all the contest members to be on Rock Band. Top 3 Winners get their song authored and get all author/artist pay. That's right, I don't get a damned thing, you get it all to yourself!

    Songs must be:

    - Within 30 seconds to 10 minutes long.
    - Be an original work.
    - Be in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, or Japanese.
    - May contain language, but strong words (s***, f***, c***, etc.) will be censored.
    - Must have stems, so I can make the song work in-game.

    Also, don't be a party pooper and vote for your own song. We gotta play fair.

    Also, if you do not win, you can also get your songs authored, but I get 5% if the earnings, you get 25%, and HMX/Microsoft get the rest.

    Happy Halloween, and hope to see (or hear) those songs soon.

    Watch somethingawful look at this and call me a r***** with missing chromosomes again. I know they will.

    Oh, I'm sorry, shoulda answered a couple months ago.

    No, I do not charge, but I do demand a percentage of the earnings. But me and the artist can set that up how ever we both agree on.

    Hey, how about -we- chart this song? If I send you midi files of some of the expert charts (For example, pro keys will be way hard), that'll smooth things out. I have reaper now and can do that, but I don't have enough experience to do the whole thing.
