Calling all digital music enthusiasts, Harmonix and MTV Games today opened the Rock Band Network for users to upload and eventually sell their tunes to living room rockers.
Announced back in July, the Rock Band Network allows anyone, anywhere to create and upload their tune to the soon-t0-be Rock Band Network Music Store, and take home 30-percent of the take.
Now, the song-creation process is not easy, and it’ll cost you between $50 and $100 for an XNA membership to even begin, but I guess, if you’re good, you could make some money?
"We are excited to democratize the Rock Band platform and expand the music discovery experience to the greater music community with the Rock Band Network," said Alex Rigopulos, CEO and co-founder of Harmonix. "We believe this will be great for fans, music lovers, bands and the music industry as a whole."
Have a look at the Rock Band Network Official Page for tons more information, including a step-by-step introduction to the service, and what it’ll take to get your song published.
why would any musician spend the time and money to get their song in RBN, to make 30%, and let them set the price at their discretion? Its not worth it.
