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.
Nope...
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...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Keyboard and Fender 'Squier' guitar or whatever, here I come! I don't know if I'm convinced that it will work well, but HMX has cranked out quality stuff so I'll give them a chance. I've been learning the guitar lately with not much direction beyond Google, I wonder if Rock Band can really become a tool to improve my playing. The clip of Pro Guitar I saw in one of the previews was a little scary... I kind of understood what fret it was tabbing out (though maybe not which string, maybe that's color coded or something), but it was all so close together I have to wonder if I'll be able to effectively read the note charts.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

1) I think they were showing a complex solo. Most of the songs wouldn't be that crowded.

2) Unlike the regular plastic guitar, you will have to practice the songs in the trainer just to get a feel of the them. I have pretty good sight-reading skills and my brain can't process the fast stuff quick enough to play it in real time.

3) It looks like each line is a different string and that the numbers is what fret to play. Sort of like a scrolling tab chart. It is actually like a super tab chart because the rhythm is notated in the speed and spacing of the chart and you can play along, making it easier to learn a song.

4) Good luck with the guitar!

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

There's also different levels of Pro, so you can train yourself up to Expert as you would in the old game.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I'm hoping they show off the real guitar during whatever event is supposed to be planned for RB3 and maybe actually show off some in context Pro mode gameplay.

I'm guessing you'll have to get a new drum set since the RB2 cymbals aren't actually separate buttons.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

If you have the wireless RB2 drums you can buy an upgrade kit.

Which sucks for me since I have the RB1 set.

Same here, though I've been thinking of getting the RB2 set for a while because they're so much quieter.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yeah, still no look at the real guitar though. I`d like to see how it works with the game.

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.
