Online collaboration competition


Recommended Posts

Hi all, As moderator of the Track Exchange forum and admin for the Music Player studio center, I have decided to give away three temporary Pro accounts to the first three people that post here with their registered username (note - not your forum username). To register, go [url=https://prod.rocketnetwork.com/main/index?view=registration&branding=MPL&template=registration/registration.html]here[/url] Then, once you have chosen your username etc, download the rocket control software. Once it is all set up, post your username here and the 7 day pro upgrade is yours. Anyone interested?

Actually, rather than recreate the whell, here is the official explanation from the [url=http://www.rocketnetwork.com]Rocket Network Website[/url] . I am more than happy to answer questions about real life applications for musos. Can I also say, at risk of getting into trouble, that musicplayer provides a studio center for utilising this technology, and it could certainly do with some more supporters.... ----------------------------------------------- Rocket Network’s Central Server coordinates a master “arrangement” of audio and MIDI parts that are shared by each user in a session. Users “post” their audio or MIDI tracks to the session through their RocketPower™ audio software. Each “post” updates the master arrangement and then the Central Server distributes the new parts to other session participants. Whenever the user enters a session where there is a project in progress, the most up-to-date arrangement is downloaded directly into their audio application on their local computer. This eliminates the requirement for remote users to email (or snail mail) their tracks to each other, import tracks into their DAW, and convert the files to the required format for their DAW. Rocket Network even allows users to work cross-application and cross-platform. Rocket Network’s chat capabilities enable users to discuss their collaboration in real-time as they work. Rocket Network has developed a custom Application Programmers Interface (API) that is integrated directly into third party audio products. This allows users to access the Rocket Network from within their favorite audio product. Rocket Network's Central Server system uses the API to provide a seamless data bridge between audio products, allowing multiple applications to be used on a single session at the same time.

hiya groovepusher nope you can use either logic plat or cubase, or the free logic and cubase versions they provide for use with rocket. As I said - register a username and I will give you the free upgrade for a week so you can really check the system out :thu:

I have Logic 4.7. What's next? - BTW, Thanks for the account :thu: -

Well if it works, Gus, maybe you & I can try a little something - I have DP, so I had to go for the Logic Rocket choice. I'd like to see this thing work - I've had hopes that some of my out-of-state friends & I could still record together. This would be ideal, if it works out right.

Well done to both of you for getting set-up. Basically what you do now is fire up logic, click on the rocket icon, or select 'Rocket Power' from the Rocket Network submenu in Logic - it will then automatically log you in. Once you are in, click on the Sessions button in Rocket Control interface, and a page will appear with all the public sessions you can access - I have created a new session called Gus something (can't remember exactly sorry) - go to that, and create away! Can I suggest you all set a time to meet? Regards David

Sorry, forgot to add - you then just create music by recording tracks in logic - when you are happy with a track, select 'post changes' in Logic and it will update that session so everyone else can hear what you have done. Then the next person can add a track etc - or everyone can be creating tracks simultaneously. It's pretty damn fun :)

I did David, but I prepared my computer to get LOGIC 5.01 and... it seems it does NOT work with Rocket... right? ... going back to 4.7 :mad: I'd love you to create a FIRST track in the project you created for me, then let me add some other stuff... could you?

Hiya Gus, I'm quite embarrassed to admit this but I actually would need to set everything up again for Logic - I use PT on rocket myself. Frank - are you set-up? Maybe you could lay down first track whilst I set up for Logic
