    So, are you guys going to author the songs? or you just going to try to hook other authors up?
    We will be the ones authoring the songs

    I'm curious, did the Eurobeat Brony song pulling through (and selling well) affect this decision in any way?
    Not at all. We decided to do this because of our love for Brony Music and we would love being able to bring some more awesome tracks to the Rock Band Store alongside the already available, and insanely catchy, Discord (Living Tombstone Remix) by Eurobeat Brony (Thanks Chart Toppers!)

    Personally, This scares me, and I don't get the whole brony thing at all.
    Don't worry about this being brony-related. The songs will be enjoyable for bronies and non-bronies alike!

    From all of us at CTA, you're quite welcome. Nice to see a group dedicated to this kind of music, there's so much great music just under the brony umbrella that even though we've got some plans for some more such tracks on our end, we sure as hell won't be able to bring all of them. I'm glad to know there'll be a dedicated way to get these songs onto the network.

    I look forward to playtesting your songs when they hit the pipeline. Best of luck to you guys! :)

    You just better hope I never create my own authoring group.



    Yes, that was horrible, and I'm sorry. I couldn't help it. I'll go sit in the corner now.

    Hey BAG, I am writing a song just for you to author. It'll be about Sonic Rainbooms, and will be a really hard song! ;)

    Like other requests, I would love to see the original version of Discord by Eurobeat Brony.

    What song are you guys authoring first/are almost done with the legal hassle first?

    I know you're gonna get a lot of crap, but I just want to say good luck, we're all counting on you.

    If this isn't reposted periodically, including past when they release their first track, I'll surely be disappointed.

    We're finishing up with the legal stuff very soon and will be getting hard at work with artists we've contacted. You'll find out about who our lucky first artists will be eventually.

    I don't think they can do a remix of the same song in RBN.

    Both weren't on RBN...

    I just recall someone mentioning that regarding another song reciently. I think it was about the Halcyon Way new album.

    Both versions of White Knuckles are on RBN. If anything, a remix would be harder to get since it's two artists instead of one.

    Yeah, but I think if you own your own remix to your own song, I think it's okay to release it. Anyways, even if the original Still alive was Rock Band DLC, and the new one was RBN, I don't see the difference.

    Don't be disappointed, and don't call me...I mean you...never mind.

    I for one welcome our new Brony overlords. Do us proud, Discord was one of my favourite releases for a while, and though I'm not big on RBN I'll have a keen eye on this thread.

    It's not that remixes aren't allowed on RBN. We just felt that putting a remix of a song already on RBN would have felt like a 'money grab' and decided against them.

    Id rather have a remix than 2x Bass Pedal songs
  • ThatAuthoringGroupThatAuthoringGroup Numero Uno Super **** Fanboy #1

    Well honestly we feel that the 2x versions are money grabs as well, but there's a lot of people that ask us to do them (otherwise we wouldn't).

    Thanks for clearing it up.

    Announcement Post updated to include our first announcements! Go check it out and let us know what we think!

    I noticed that some of those songs use voice samples from the actual show. If I remember right, sampling, like covers, isn't allowed in the RBN. You might want to make sure it's okay with Harmonix, and especially Hasbro, to use those songs before going any further.

    Edit: Unless you already did both, then I'm just giving unnecessary advice.

    It's gonna have the samples removed unfortunately but it'll still sound great.

    Wow, that song with a preview video looks awesome. Really interested in seeing how the rest turn out.

    As Megaman768 said, the samples will be removed because of copyright reasons.

    Thanks for mentioning it, I added a note about samples in the first post :D
