Not the quality of content. I actually feel they have been releasing some killer DLC lately. The problem I have is charting for most songs seems very subpar compared to RB1-RB3 standards. The last I heard was they were outsourcing DLC, which I wouldn't have a problem with if they would just follow the standards HMX has set from previous games.
Secondly, it has been coming more common for them to use DIY stems. The reason I was happy RB4 was coming back was to get multitrack DLC back. I enjoy customs, but multitrack just adds an extra layer of realism that mp3 customs lack. Even with multitracks, the DLC sounds just like the original MP3 with no modifications to make it better in game.
If I knew HMX would not be able to meet their own previous set standards, I would of just stuck with RB3. I probably should of known something was up when all the faces of the company that we had known "left".
Question for the OP.... I bold/underlined the bit that I have a question about.... What does that mean, "outsourcing DLC"? I'm a total noob when it comes to making DLC, the whole charting of songs and...just in general, turning songs into playable things in RB... lol. So forgive me if my question seems silly, or if the answer is obvious to almost everyone else, but I truly have no idea what that even means, 'outsourcing DLC'.
When I think of outsourcing... I think of those customer service employees for companies/businesses that you'd think would have English-speaking people on the other end of the call (or have their customer service employees working here in the U.S, where possibly the rest of their business/company is run at? Or in general, in a country where English is the first language, if the general clientele of the business speaks English as their first language), but it's people who can barely speak or read English, and are only giving you answers and responses that are from the script they have in front of them. Lolol.
