Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.
Just when I think I'm out, they keep pulling me back in. The keyboard sounds awesome!
One of the pics of the guitars showed what looked like a real guitar with a 1/4" input jack... I wonder if they will sell an adapter to allow me to use my guitar with RB3.
The real guitar controller has sensors in the neck so the game knows which string is pressed on what length...
But there will be a adaptor for keyboards and electric drums so you can use them with the game...
Rock Band 3 Squier By Fender Stratocaster Guitar Controller
Fully functional, full-sized, stringed, electric guitar
Technology built into the neck and fingerboard tracks finger positions
Transmits strum data for each of the six strings
Rock Band 3 MIDI PRO-Adapter
Use a real MIDI keyboard or MIDI drum set in Rock Band 3
Velocity sensitive adjustment for MIDI drums designed to reduce cross-talk during play
Ships with a removable clip, allowing it to be attached to a belt
I was reading the IGN preview and it looks like the guitar communicates with the game using MIDI. So I can get a MIDI adapter for my guitar and that could work for in-game.
Sing glorious, victorious,
One keg of beer for the four of us.
Sing glory be to God that there are no more of us,
For one of us could drink it all alone. Damn near.
