I have started taking a crack at creating custom rock band songs for the first time ever.  I really appreciate what each author provides, whether I like the song or not.  I appreciate the effort and passion to extend the life of Rock Band as this has been the party game of choice for my entire family.

 

I have a lot of songs I would like to have in custom Rock Band and havent seen any of the songs I would like to see in the WIP section so I figured if you want something done, you gotta do it yourself. :)

 

My first custom work is Dredg - Sanzen.  I think this song is great, and would be a lot of fun to play in Rock Band.  So far I've started with guitar and I'm just about done with the first verse.  I'm sure I'll be reaching out for help on the other instruments as this is my first run through the process and I'm certain I will need some guidance from the community.

 

Thanks again to everyone who contributes to this site as I've gotten thorough enjoyment from it and hope to become a contributor to it as well.

Thanks!  I finished the guitar part, well at least got them roughly in the correct place.  I may need some help with the tempo map or at least make sure I'm somewhat on the right track.  In certain sections of the song, the notes line up perfectly but then it gets out of sync for no reason (as far as I can tell) and it doesn't quite line up with the music even though the notes are lined up correctly on the grid.  I'll keep investigating and reading tips but I'm excited to work on this!

Are you using Reaper's metronome option? The button to activate it is near the top left. That could help you figure out your sync issues. Quite possibly it's a tempo map problem. The song might not use the same exact tempo the entire song. It might fluctuate a bit.
