Rock Band 3 - The Keyboard is here!

Post by TheMarsh-WiggleQuester » Thu Jun 10, 2010 6:54 pm

Okay, I got a little skeptic when they announced that Rock Band 3 would gain a keyboard...

I just imagined one single piece of plastic with 5 or 6 keys...moron thing....

But....they impressed me again.

Yeah! I like what they did with it, and I HOPE it supports MIDI

If it's anything like the drums, then it WILL support midi. As far as I know you can even use a normal electric drum set with an adapter.

It does support MIDI - I also picked up a USB MIDI controller for RB3 - it will allow you to use a MIDI compatible keyboard, drumset, or guitar to use in game.

I gotta admit, RB 3 keyboard pro mode is KICKING MY A$$!

It's really weird trying to play notes coming 'at' you as opposed to scrolling right to left...
