5.0 out of 5 stars It's a MIDI controller too! 28 July 2013
By Phil
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes, it works well as a controller for Rock Band 3 on the Wii. (That game is tricky in "Pro Keys" mode because of the low screen resolution of the Wii - makes it hard to make out the different keys on the screen.)

HOWEVER - forget all that, because THIS is basically a 2-octave, full sized keys, MIDI controller keyar, that doesn't look (too much) like a toy when you've got it strapped on. It has a MIDI Out - so you're basically free to hook it up to any MIDI compatible sound source, whether you own a Wii or not. 'Proper' keytars cost HUNDREDS of pounds!

It runs on 3 AA batteries - and they're included in the box (so even more of a bargain)!

If they put this in a pro music shop for a tenner, they'd fly off the shelves. Go on, you know you want one. Let's start a keytar revolution!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 17 Oct 2012

The keyboard is a fine addition to the Rock Band game. The keyboard has a realistic feel and is great to play. Loads of fun, especially in pro mode.

Good quality and easy to hook up with the rest of the Rockband gear. We have a number of kids who come round and play so, this is an excellent extra instrument so, less sitting out and taking turns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 'Midi' keyboard 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a cheap option for a midi controller, in particular to play my Korg Volca Bass as my fat fingers find it very difficult to hit the small Volca keys built in the unit... this works very well and at the price (around 9) it's a steal!!! great service from both Amazon & supplier..

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what the series needs. 25 Jan 2011
By Joshua - Published on Amazon.com

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. I've had several friends that wanted to try at a party, and all of them started off in 5-note (non-pro) mode.

The built-in lessons are handy. I went through several of them to get comfortable with the keyboard (simple scales, intervals) before moving into career mode. I'll probably go back and finish them someday, but I found myself wanting to just play some music.

Watching the partial keyboard on screen takes some getting used to. Rather than using the strap I've been placing the keyboard on my lap, which allows me to glance down occasionally. Other than that I am finding where notes are primarily by feeling around (locations of black keys give you some guidance). I'll admit that this is occasionally frustrating, particularly when intervals and solos are moving faster than I can keep up. Again, patience seems to have a key role in game-play.

Conclusion:
The device itself is great. Game-play is a lot of fun if you are willing to take the time and energy to learn, or you must be satisfied with easy or non-pro mode. While this device may not be for everyone, it adds a ton for those of us who desire more realistic game-play (and the potential to pick up a new instrument).

4.0 out of 5 stars RockBand 3 wireless keyboard 31 Jan 2011
By Dano - Published on Amazon.com

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 9 Dec 2011
By Joseph Murphey - Published on Amazon.com

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 17 Nov 2010
By Matthew Poe - Published on Amazon.com
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.

The regular non-pro mode seemed a little silly: since you must play it one-handed, it does not have the same level of involvement as guitar, bass or drums.

I went through three of the pro-keyboard lessons, but the software kept glitching to the point that it was unplayable and I had to reset the console. Not impressed.

And, although you couldn't call it a surprise, if you have imported your RB2 tracks or have a lot of DLC, there are just not that many songs that have keyboard parts to play to begin with. On tracks without a keyboard part, it gives you the option of playing guitar or bass parts on the keys, which I tried, but found that I would rather be playing the guitar part on the guitar.

In short, I am not really eager to rush home to a second night with that keyboard-- which is a shame, because I'd been counting down the days until it was delivered. Oh well. I still love my drums best!

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.
