Rock Band Network is On Hold Again
(01/14/11): Happy New Year! While it was exciting to get two PYC songs put up on RBN for some testing many months ago, only one got even a single review. That's not even close to enough to move it to the next level of Peer Review, so the journey to getting on the RBN Marketplace is still just beginning. Thankfully, the review that was received was a good one, chock full o' stuff to update before resubmitting for more testing.
Unfortunately (but kind of fortunately), RBN 2.0 is now out, which means drums can be Pro Drums, but also means more delays. It's been a long road and the steam needed to get this project done is currently at a low, but it will come back at some point.
In the meantime, tide yourself over with an old cover we did of Blind Melon's hit single No Rain. I think we did a fairly good job, despite the recording being raw and undeveloped.
Rock Band Network: Update, New (Old) Track
(09/28/10): So, it took a little longer than anticipated to actually get around to finishing up the songs for the Rock Band Network (man, it's been 10 months), but they are now available for playtesting over the following two weeks. If you are a member of RBN and have the ability to playtest either "Pens and Knives" or "Six More Weeks of Winter", we would be muchly appreciative. They're both first attempts at tracking PYC's music, so they probably have some issues. Thus, we need the community to help us get them on RBN!
We recently finished a new (old) track, called "Revolver Unloaded". Originally a short instrumental by Mike, Kathy provided some vocals and a new song was born. It's a bit long in running time, but the mood it creates is easy to get lost in.
Rock Band Network
(11/18/09): Rock Band, that awesome rock star simulation you all know and love, will soon be letting bands sell their own DLC in the Music Store, courtesy of Rock Band Network. The tools to make the custom MIDI instructions to make this possible were released a while ago, but the store isn't accepting submissions yet. "Six More Weeks of Winter" is already in the final stages of production as Pure Yellow Colour's first entry into the RBN. Look for it soon!
Also, a mobile stylesheet has been created for pureyellow.net. Visit the site with an iPhone to check it out.
