Harmonix has announced plans to allow users to create and sell their own songs in a community store called The Rock Band Network. For more info, check out the official site and video:

A public beta may begin as soon as next month and it is slated for release before the end of the year. Soon you may be able to find Rock Band DLC of your favorite local and indie bands, and of my band. Censored versions of some tracks would have to be produced, as cussing will not be allowed in created tracks.

The library of available songs is going to be huge. Like they say in the official video, they’re “opening the musical floodgates.” I can’t wait to see which of my favorite bands might have tracks in the Rock Band Network.

There are several variables at play in order for this to work well: ease of use for creators, the quality control of created products, and a strong rating and category systems in the Rock Band Network to allow users to find the kind of music they are looking for. So far it looks like all is going well and I am optimistic that everything will come together to create a vibrant Rock Band community.
