SheSaidSheSaid;4557721 said:There's not really that much to understand.Band wants in RB.Band contacts authoring group. (or vice versa, or through a proxy - you!)//song stems, some amount of money change hands/// - AKA the part you don't really need to know the specifics aboutSong is authored.Song is tested.-some lather, rinse, repeat may be necessary-Song is available on Xbox.(maybe) Song is available on PS3 some time later.That's really it, in a nutshell. The bulk of it is about describing the game (making sure to mention RB3 features, particularly if the band has a keyboardist) and why being in the game is good for the band. I usually presume some familiarity with the genre, if not Rock Band itself, and make a comparison to Guitar Hero. Which is usually followed by "Rock Band is different in several ways, not the least is that they're still producing content."But you can absolutely help with the first two steps. If nothing else, just tell the band members to check out this forum.

Caliph;4558029 said:Ah thats a pretty crappy deal. I dont get paid to do the legwork and then the song goes to Xbox and might not ever make it to PS3. I don't own nor would I ever buy that shoddy piece of crap called XBOX. Hey I want the song but not bad enough for that one sided arrangement. Sorry for wasting the forums time. I will continue to spend cash on good tunes though.
