5.0 out of 5 stars Initial impressions... October 12, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
With the game 2 weeks away from release, the fervor that it's generating is at its peak as evidenced by the fact that Amazon is sold out of the keyboard (as of 10/12/2010 anyway).

I received both keyboard and stand (review for the stand is here: Rock Band 3 - Keyboard Stand for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii) last week.

Here are my initial impressions of the keyboard:

- Build quality is solid. It has a good weight to it and none of it feels flimsy. Battery compartment is snug and tight and there's no fear of anything running loose.
- The keyboard comes with its own strap should you feel inclined to "key-tar" it, 80s style.
- The keyboard has a touch pad at the end of the handle, on the top. Presumably you will be able to distort held notes, similar to a whammy bar on the guitar.
- The keyboard also has an overdrive button adjacent to the touch pad.
- The packaging notes that the keyboard will also be able to play guitar and bass parts as well; why you might feel compelled to do that is unfathomable, but it's available...obviously, it won't support Pro modes for stringed instruments.
- The keyboard dongle will allow you to plug in TWO peripherals. This may be key for those of us who own the PS3 slim and may not necessarily want to invest in a USB hub (I did, but that's just me) or any other attachment that allows for additional USB hook-ups.
- All of the other PS3 controls (Start, Select, PS button, etc.) are all there just like the Rock Band guitar peripherals.
- MIDI is supported ... again, I'm not sure why you might want a 25-key keyboard as a MIDI device when a full keyboard would do the job better, but there you have it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much fun! October 27, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just reviewed the game of Rock Band 3 while discussing the keyboard, but I'll add a few notes here as well.

The keyboard is the sole reason I got the game, and was enough to get me to start playing Rock Band for the first time. (I was playing Guitar Hero World Tour before. Not too big on the guitar but the drums are fun.)

This keyboard works great. The keys feel better and are more solid than I was anticipating. I've seen more expensive compact midi keyboards that have very cheap flimsy feeling keys. They are sturdy and feel nice.

Keyboard works very nicely in the game. I jumped right into pro keys from the start and they feel pretty natural.

On pro keys easy you start off using all the keys, however you stay within a set area of the keyboard for each song. On medium you still stay in a set area (depending on song) but chords come into play. On hard you get more chords, more notes, and you are no longer in a set area. The area will change from right to left showing you move up and down the keyboard. This is very confusing to look at first, and while I haven't mastered it, it doesn't seem too bad. And expert is just crazy mode.

I love it, having a lot of fun with it. It has brought new life to the game, and is actually beneficial for really playing the keyboard/piano.

5.0 out of 5 stars A month with the Wireless Keyboard controller for PS3 November 23, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased the Rock Band 3 Wireless Keyboard for the PS3 a month ago. As with all PS3 wireless controllers installation is instantaneous. In this case, simply plug the dongle into the PS3, put the batteries (conveniently supplied with the controller) in the back of the keyboard controller and it just works. As a lifelong piano and keyboards player myself, I was keen to explore the Pro Keys mode in Rock Band 3 immediately. Once I'd callibrated the controller with my A/V setup I was pleasantly surprised at how accurate the keyboard is. The Pro modes in RB3 demand some pretty accurate playing and the keyboard controller gave me great results right out of the gate. The keys are completely unweighted, which has it's pros and cons I suppose. On the plus side the keys are effortless to play, whether you're a child, a teen or an adult. I did notice myself accidentally activating the notes when simply resting my hand on the keys, but it's a very minor point against what is an otherwise brilliant device that adds a huge new dimension to the Rock Band dynamic. Recently I had my son on the drums, a couple of mates on guitars, wife and daughter on vocals and me on keys and it was a huge amount of fun. The touch sensitive ribbon controller on the arm of the keyboard works really well. It's used in RB3 to add sonic effects like wah-wah and resonance to the keyboard parts as you're playing them. I was debating whether to wait for the MIDI interface so that I could use one of my own (very expensive) keyboards in the game. But having used the controller for a few weeks I'm very glad I bought it. The controller's convenient size (about 50cm long) means that it can be easily stored away in a drawer or cupboard - something you wouldn't really want to do with a full size MIDI keyboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best instrument yet! November 1, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
While it's not my favorite to play (I prefer drums!), it's awesome. The keyboard is so much fun, but the reason I say it's the best instrument is for the overall quality. It's rock solid feeling compared to the other Rock Band instruments. We love it! Note however, that if you're a Rock Band junkie & have a bunch of RB1 & RB2 content loaded into RB3, there is NO keyboard playing retro'd into the older RB songs & downloadable content. It has you play the keyboard as the Bass. It's still fun, but would have been nice to see it fully integrated somehow. If you have RB3, buy this instrument!
