Dan Teasdale, the lead designer of Rock Band 2, and his buddies at Harmonix are exploring the possibilities of creating an in-game music studio that features an "authentic experience."
He believes that they have to go "all-in" if they are going to include a music studio in a future release and points to the limitations of Guitar Hero World Tour's studio makes it a "half-arsed" effort.
What limitations? Well, Dan would do it this way:
"We actually want to find a way to for people to create music and express themselves, but when we do we want to make sure that people can sing, or the songs can be longer than three minutes, or that you can have more than 1200 notes, or that you're not tied to some dodgy sample somewhere. We want to make sure it's an authentic experience and it fits on the platform."
Do you have Guitar Hero World Tour? Have you used the music studio at all? What do you think of it so far?
