ThatAuthoringGroup;4494960 said:So would it make it easier if the authors got together and put together a Youtube video thread? Make it a one stop place where you can go in and just click the links to the songs and have a full blown video preview?

Pankrazzo;4495348 said:I also refuse to buy any music that sounds like ****ty midi ringtones (chiptune instrumentals)

Pankrazzo;4495348 said:Everyone can scream, everyone can growl and every hillbilly can fudge together some midi crap on simple music programming tools without any real instruments, and I won't support talentless no-name stuff like that.
BachiG;4495241 said:Unfortunately, no matter whose "fault" it is that the majority of the music on RBN is of the metulz screamz catagory, the fact that it's primarily THE genre available is probably the biggest factor why there is not greater numbers of sales. As a PS3 owner (after the whole preview problem was worked out) I've bought quite a few non-metalz tracks, but there aren't a whole lot to chose from. Then the whole pro-drums cymbals/toms screw up didn't help matters much....so my initial interest from the promising idea at the beginning definetly waned.
SheSaidSheSaid;4495478 said:What's this about pro drums screwup? I don't drum, at all, ever, so it doesn't affect me, but I thought all songs had pro drums.
DragoonXD;4495484 said:There are quite of bit of early RBN songs without pro drums, because the authors weren't told how to chart it. I believe they were told how June or July of 2010?
ricecake;4495441 said:While I agree with the whole pro drums thing on the early songs, I did actually end up buying some of them, and just rated them differently in my library so I know when not to pick pro drums for that song.As far as genres on PS3 go, Metal is around 1/3 of what's available and is the largest single genre represented, but that still leaves 2/3 of the songs that are other genres.https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?hl=en_US&key=0Apm-lkjZhgQ7dGtWNHkyTWNIY1pCOXNZUmphbzh0VUE&hl=en_US&gid=70
ThatAuthoringGroup;4495351 said:Pankrazzo, we're not asking people to just buy songs they don't like just for the sake of supporting RBN or authoring groups.We're trying to find ways to reach out to the people that say the never buy or bother with RBN. Find the reasoning behind that, and find out what we can do to help as there are a lot of really great tracks in RBN (and yes there are some questionable ones as well).[...]So again we're not suggesting or begging people to start buying every track released just for the sake of RBN, or authoring groups. We're trying to find ways to help expand the consumer base, and try and educate the masses that there are some real quality tracks in the RBN offerings.
