Hello, nsw1-6 here! Around July 2016 I finally decided to lay out a WIP thread to keep my progress details separate, and not clutter my main thread. Most information here will regard tempo mapping, fretting, and individual instrument progress. My work is currently done using Edits On Fire, but I've moved to Reaper for finalizing charts. I'm also getting assistance from other members here to prepare full-band customs for RB3.
PLEASE notify me of anything that has been done already in FULL BAND. I will be on the lookout as well (and be heartbroken when ninja'd) All my charts will be Guitar/Bass/ProDrums/Vox, depending on instrument availability. ProKeys and Harmonies will be added if doable. ProGuitar/ProBass are done in rare circumstances. These are authored EoF first, and then they will be prepared for RB3/C3 in Reaper.
You can also tell me to pick up the pace on something as well. Demand must be met with supply!
Nothing - Announced on a pack list, but have not started anything with it yet, talk to me if you want to do it or are already working on it and I'll concede.
Syncing - Currently in the process of tempo mapping this chart
Synced - I've tempo-mapped this song and began work on instruments, (Rough) qualifier means a rough job has been done and still need to finish it. Doing a map roughly helps me speed up work on grid-snapped instruments.
At Conversion Stage - (DEPRECATED) Pretty obvious here. All the base instruments that are my responsibility are done, but the ETA (estimate time of arrival) depends on if I handed it off to someone or am doing it myself. It's at this stage I add ProKeys and Harmonies.
FIXING - Chart previously released by me, but being fixed at the moment (most likely this means I'm fixing the tempo-map). Also used if I'm upgrading a chart that I know needs fixing.
To be upgraded / Upgrading - A chart of this song previous exists, either here or on the FoF Forums and I am going to do or currently doing tempo map fixes or adding instruments.
(Laid out) - IDEAS ONLY: Means that I have songs listed that I'm interested in doing for a pack, but haven't started or willing to announce yet
G - Guitar
B - Bass
V - Lead Vocals / HARM1
H - Harmonies
PD - ProDrums
PG - ProGuitar
PB - ProBass
PK - ProKeys
Partial Collab - I am working with someone, (un)specified, where they will be doing chart checking, adding venues, helping with conversion, reductions, all the little bits, or in some cases adding ProKeys.
Collab - I am working with one or more people on something, and they will be contributing instruments
This be the artists I am currently focusing on. Their stuff is more likely to be released first, but I may work on other things in the background. Should be updated every month or two.
