Is capella supposed to be something like the xonotic bot orchestra? FAQ isn't descriptive enough..

It's not supposed to be clear. The game isn't due for months and months.

Xonotic bot orchestra - it looks like MIDI song connected to 3D objects. Capella will be any mp3 song and arranged players. I am not sure if something like that already exists somewhere but closest is this (but it is very simple) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0BKh3_XumI

You should be able to make serious videoclips (only humans there), or crazy (with aliens).

By crazy...do you mean like a human dropping down and a goon pouncing it (and then having a new human drop down) for the drum track?  :P

Yes, like that^  :D

Question:
By "humans = serious music" and "aliens =crazy", would a choir feature be added to the humans, so we may party like its 1699?  :P

Well, "aliens = crazy" because common aliens does not singing. But you still can use aliens for singing opera :) and make it serious.

And you will be able to use more humans to make anything.

can't open mediafire links here.
Anyway, how do you suppose aliens make music as well? The only option i can think of are taunts, and pitch changing [like the granger music from KoRx main menu]

It's not just taunts, it's every sound they can make. Like goon-pounce for a nice drum peddle, or perhaps a sped-up basi-gas release for a cymbal. Heck, you could assign an entire 5 octave range just by changing the pitch of the pulse rifle.

Actually they will not make any sounds. Everything will be just dubbing with your background mp3.

So something like Aliens will bounce/sing on your MP3 sound? (Beat detection etc?)

Shame, i wanted to let the aliens "cry me a river" or make "Gunther's s Ballad".

You will add mp3 and add tyrant for drums (for example). Then you will "program" him, so tyrant will hit drum in right time and it will looks like he really playing on drums.

If you just add players to scene and nothing else - they will stand there and that is all.

There will not be automatic beat detection.
