Lots of bug fixing incoming.

'Rock Band 4' is out now, and the game's unprecedented support of DLC and legacy instruments has not come without a host of trouble for the fun game (review here). Fortunately, many of the issues are small or unique to certain set-ups, but even better, Harmonix seems to be working on the problem. Today, the developer announced some highlights of issues that they plan to fix by the end of the month. Unfortunately, it sounds like song exports from 'Rock Band' & 'Rock Band' won't be coming any earlier than December (if then).

Here are specific updates and fixes announced today (and planned for the last week of October)

Character Stand-ins: we fixed this issue; players who build custom band members can also have their band appear across all game modes (Shows, Quickplay, Career)

PS4 Streaming Audio Support: we are fixing the issue with song audio for live streaming on the PS4

5.1 crowd audio support: we are making a change to add more ambience and crowd audio to the surround channels, similar to what we’ve done in previous versions of Rock Band

Various bug fixes:

Fixed an issue where Beatles guitars would not auto-calibrate

Fixed an issue where character previews might pop-up in the overshell during gameplay

Fixed a font issue with certain symbols in lyrics

Fixed a lefty-flip cymbal issue with GH drums

Fixed an issue where playing some songs with intentional missing parts would result in a crash

Fixed an issue on PS4 where users with more than 2,000 Friends are unable to view in-game leaderboards


Furthermore, "additional information about the December title update, including specifics regarding availability of DLC exports" has been promised as coming soon. As someone who has exported 'RB1,' 'RB2 '& 'AC/DC' on the 360 to 'RB3,' I'm anxious for some info and to get those songs into 'Rock Band 4.'
