The keyboard is built quite well. It looks and feels like a real two octave keyboard should. The keys have just the right amount of spring and resistance. The touch sensitive whammy effect also works well in game. I don't have a midi sequencing device so I can only assume that it works as expected.
If you are interested in getting this device, know that going into it with the correct mindset is key. Unless you have keyboard experience, don't expect to become a virtuoso the first time you pick it up. If you are interested in pro mode you will most likely need to put in a lot of time practicing alone (at the moment I find playing with others while in pro mode a bit distracting). If you lack patience the keyboard may not be for you.
The game allows you to select between standard mode (only 5 white keys are activated like the standard RB/GH guitars) and pro (the entire keyboard). Both modes allow you to select a difficulty, so pro mode is not necessarily prohibited from the start. I found that I was able to jump right into career/quickplay at a medium pro level (mostly single notes with some 2-note intervals on more advanced songs). Not everyone will be able to do the same.Read more ›
If you want to play it like a keyboard rather than sling it over your shoulder like a keytar, it's hard to find a surface to play it that won't make your hand hurt after a couple of songs. (Maybe the Mad Catz stand would help? I wanted to try the keyboard out before deciding whether to get the stand, and based on my experience so far, I doubt I will be playing it enough to make the stand worthwhile.)
There were no real instructions that I could find, in-game or in the accompanying documentation. It didn't take long to figure out through trial and error, but failing the first few bars of a song while you figure out what buttons do what is not a great user experience. The interface is not very intuitive (like the rest of the over-shell in RB3), and some basic "I see you've plugged in a keyboard for the first time. Do you want a quick tutorial?" in-game would have been very welcome.
I play a little piano, so I expected to have a head start on pro mode. To some extent that was true, in terms of knowing my way around the keyboard without having to look at my fingers, but the way the notes are represented in pro mode was really frustrating. There's an on-screen "track" for every single note, and I found it really difficult to tell which notes it wanted me to play.
If RB3 had an option to switch to standard sheet music, I would have taken it-- had I spent the same amount of time at my piano with the sheet music to "Imagine" as I spent trying to figure out which notes Rock Band wanted me to hit in that stupid bridge, I would be able to play the song from memory today.Read more ›

Bought for a prop, but it actually works well with MIDI and the computer. I assume it works with the Wii as well.Published 1 month ago by AMN
Definitely worth the money! Rock band 3 probably one of the best rock band and you can have the upto seven people play at time. The Keyboard is one fun addition.Published 4 months ago by Nathan
I'm using this purely as a MIDI controller and it works beautifully. The keys feel surprising nice for a toy, better than a lot of lower end real keyboards.Published 5 months ago by Zach Jardon
The cost ($20) made me think that this would not be the real deal. At time of purchase I rationalized that interest level (or lack there-of) in 2015 was the reason for lower price... Read morePublished 5 months ago by wutliss
