5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what the series needs. January 25, 2011
By Joshua
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had the RB3 keyboard for almost a week now and my experiences are quite good. I have prior music experience with guitar and similar instruments, and some basic theory/vocal/keyboard training from when I was in college (much of which I've forgotten). Because of past music experience I probably start with a slight advantage over your average person. I've wanted to learn keyboard for a while, and RB3 moving into the realm of more realistic instrument play is a welcome change for me.

Construction:
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.

Game-play:
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars RockBand 3 wireless keyboard January 31, 2011
By Dano
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Wii Rock Band 3 wireless keyboard functions wonderfully, with great feel and easy connectivity. The range of skill requirements range from easy to pro (with chording and bona fide keyboard skills required at the expert and pro levels), so it is extremely versatile for all skill levels. Be aware, however, that most of the older downloadable song content (especially for Rock Band 1 or 2) lack keyboard options in scoring/software development, so the system automatically blocks keyboard access by showing "No Keyboard" available for those songs. Hopefully there will be backward development to release Rock Band 3 compatible versions to allow keyboards for those songs, to add to the content that is available for keyboards now.

5.0 out of 5 stars cheap midi keyboard for home studio December 9, 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This makes a great midi controller for a home studio. Just the right size to fit between the computer and its keyboard, it does all the midi functions I need. Sometimes 25 keys right in front of me beats 61 or 88 across the room.

2.0 out of 5 stars High expectations, but not very impressed November 16, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered this, and was really excited for it, but after a night of playing, I'm less than thrilled.

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.

Works great with the Wii. Best part is that it doesn't require a wii remote to be plugged in to connect to the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! Really hard to learn though. December 8, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Verified Purchase
My daughters and I got this because we love Rock Band and wanted something different. If you play it like the guitars it isn't that hard because you only have the samr colored keys. But, if you want to master this thing it will be a real challenge.

Only downside is you can't have a bass guitar and lead guitar together with this. The Wii only allows a total of 4 peripherals at any one time. Overall it is fun to have in your band.

Works exactly as it's supposed to in Rock Band. As a keyboard you can use only the 5 colored keys and rock it as a keytar; it even has strap buttons and an overdrive switch. Read more
