Hello!

I have started a group known as The C.C.B.B Project (Customs Created By Beginners) and I'm currently looking for people beginning to create customs!

So far it's only me and I love creating customs! I don't have the best schedule so don't expect them to be done as soon as you want them to be!

Don't worry, I'll be working on them too!

I only need 2-3 people to get this group started!

I'm wanting to keep our discussions in private chat instead of the WIP section of the site as I like the idea of uploading songs randomly without people expecting them!

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask! :)

All the power to you to get this off the ground. One thing though, WIPs help so people aren't working on things simultaneously and then surprised when what they were hard at work on is suddenly released without warning. This has now happened to me TWICE, so not a huge fan of "secret" projects. And if you're going slower, odds are not in your favor that the duplicate work will end up being yours. Just some fair warning.

I thought about it, I'll just keep checking out the WIPs from time to time!

I'll bite.

 

Are any of your customs in the database under a different name? If yes, could you provide links? If none of your works are in the database... well, why not?

 

Do you have any examples of your work? Be it CONs or Reaper files.

 

Have you worked with any of the authors that frequent this website before?

 

What necessary skills and/or experience do you have in relation to custom creation? (tempo mapping, practice sections, etc.)

 

What instruments do you enjoy charting the most?

 

For what instrument do you think your charts could use improvement?

 

Do you pitch vocals?

 

Could you name 10 artists you're interested in charting?

+1 to everything Rob has said.  The only people that read the WIP forum are other authors, and there are many reasons other than avoiding duplication that they do this - because duplicates are allowed, its just a major faux-pas in this community.   I suggest you consider leaking the artists name on discord so any other authors working on songs by that artist can reach out.  This might even kick start your collaboration.    Just sayin!

Good luck.

This is going to be painful for me to send as I don’t have access to my pc XD
1. I only have one song in the database but as soon as I get access to a pc, i’ll provide the link :) Here it is http://customscreato...conquest-r19729

2. I do have examples but it bothers me to chart a song with missing instruments, that’s why it will take a little while to create!

3. Nope! but that’s the point of this group, I’m wanting to try to help beginners get better at charting!

4. My skills aren’t the best but I’m trying to get better!

5. I enjoy charting everything but pro instruments (I don’t know how)

6. Vocals, I never released a custom with vocals but I have an idea on how to do it.

7. We’ll try to do everything to make sure our customs are enjoyable!

8. M83, Passion Pit, MGMT, The Sterns, Chicago, The Doobie Brothers, Coheed and Cambria, Almost any Requests!

I’ll keep that in mind!

Any particular Passion Pit and Doobie Brothers songs you have in mind? I've got a few not on my WiP so I don't want us to accidentally chart the same song.

This project is as good a place to get started as any! :)
