"Rapponator"

Recommended Posts

On October 22, 2020, Take-Two Interactive registered the aforementioned domain called "rapponator.com".

 

The name bears a resemblance to Beaterator, a music mixer, developed by Rockstar Leeds. Rapponator is likely a newer music mixer in development by Rockstar in collaboration with certain music artists. Remarkably, Dr.Dre was featured briefly in the Cayo Perico Heist update for GTA Online, signaling a possible long-term collaboration with Rockstar.

While googling for the name:

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/rapponator

 

Likely just securing the name as I'd assume if this is a new Beaterator, tracks would be uploaded to RGSC. Interesting find. But could also be something else entirely tbh.

Nice find, you know what's also interesting?

 

At the end of the cameo scene Dr.Dree was featured in GTAO, the car that has a lot of his music demos is stolen. This is likely Rockstar setting the stage for Rapponator.

They own celebinator.com and rhymerator.com as well, with the former being registered in 2009. Celebinator was a character in The Ballad of Gay Tony. It's possible Rapponator is a character in the next Grand Theft Auto title or in GTA Online.

 

Speaking of domains, they registered "bowndetector.com" around the same time last year. Bowndetector seems like a play on Downdetector.com which is a free service used to check whether or not a server is online. The word "bown" is mainly a Scottish phrase.

This suddenly smells like parody domains like back in the day....

This was a real thing they had in 2001 on their site, kinda like a soundboard IIRC when Flash was still supported and the Wayback Machine had bits of it, but RIP.

I guess we can't get too far ahead of ourselves, since it could be anything that Take-Two own, however since there is already a Reddit sub maybe we'll hear more about whatever this is in the very near future.

Take-Two could have simply not put "Take-Two" on the subreddit private description thing. Fail...

That subreddit might not be official and whoever registered it just added "Take-Two". From the same google search I made earlier...

 

The person who registered the Urban Lion Den (another domain found ages ago, from 2K though*) subreddit was a mod of this sub according to Google's cached meta description (notice the "and 8 more" part, which is now only "and 7 more"). Their own subreddit for ULD also says "by take-two" because of the domain belonging to them.

It's possible T2 asked for it to be given, but I don't see why that wouldn't have happened with ULD then.

 

*You can see it's a site by 2K because of the SSL certificate. Rockstar certs are signed to themselves in NYC, ULD is signed in Novato to 2K, so it's 100% 2K related.

Anybody remember the beat making game on PlayStation original, I think it was?

This is all very interesting. My guess is we can rule out if its for this next dlc or for the next gta game in the July. Raponator would fit well with a tuners dlc imo. If not for this dlc, I can see it being used for the next game more so... but just speculation.

In-game domains for GTAO DLC's are registered in real life too, so there is still a chance both could be for that. As to why they were registered so early - who knows, perhaps delays and such. Music Locker and Diamond Casino were also registered a few months in advance but not this long.

 

We'll be patiently waiting to see if it's even anything. :p

So what do you guys mean by 'music mixer', and how would that tie into the game?

Maybe we will get "R* Table Tennis 2" at one point...

Maybe they will add this music mixer to GTA Online and also add Table tennis to GTA Online.

The post in the 6 speccy thread from @WELLGAMER789 about that new trademark is music-related "intended to cover the categories of musical recordings; musical sound recordings; musical video recordings; digital music downloadable from the internet; downloadable music files; downloadable musical sound recordings; mobile application software featuring music ..." et al.

 

The other trademarks relate to other things, like clothing or arranging and conducting live events.

 

Probably related to their new record label, but maybe this, too.

The owner of the sub (u/AntFry) has recently let members in.

 

Note they are just a fan and is not officially owned by Take-Two.

Here is the only post if you care at all:

Right, so just as I expected the subreddit wasn't taken down by T2 but rather withheld by the subreddit creator because they didn't know what it was, but just in case, and they just left the description saying "Take-Two". It kinda looked like their MO with the Urban Lion Den subreddit (which is a 2K thing) so yeah.

I think Rapponator may have to do with something in NBA 2K

 

https://nba.2k.com/courtside-report/nba-2k22-features-update-1/

 

Quote

HIDDEN TALENTS [PS5/XBS] - In NBA 2K22, dreams and ambitions in MyCAREER stretch beyond the hardwood floors; players can now pursue side ventures to build a profile in lucrative and trendy spaces. Brush up against the fashion world, where the art of promotion will drive your success as a mogul. Or get involved in the hip-hop business, where your music talent opens up an intriguing lane in the industry.

They've already had a beat maker in previous games maybe this is an expansion on that.
