I actually asked this on music.stackexchange and what I learned is that this is the most standard and typical rock drum layout: You can of course have more drums and cymbals, absurdly more, but that's the layout which most closely approximates a 'typical' or 'normal' rock drum kit. Anything less is a bit barebones, so the above picture is what you should be ...

In Rock Band 3 Pro Drum mode, the cymbals show up differently on the tracks. They will show as circles instead of rectangles on the yellow, blue and green tracks. You must not only hit the correct color, but hit the drum or the cymbal as shown. Hitting the yellow drum pad when the yellow cymbal is shown counts as a miss. You can adjust the difficulty just ...

And the solution: replace the MIDI cable. Problem went away; everything works fine.

Actually, I've tried this. I just opened up my PS3 Rock Band 3 guitar, and found a jumper on the main PCB labelled "jp1-jp1.5". It was soldered over jp1, so I re-soldered it over jp1.5 and guess what? 100% functional on my Wii. Jp1, it's a PS3 guitar. Jp1.5 it's Wii. Really that simple. One could even install a switch rather then hard soldering the jumper ...

It's an old question, but I might as well add something no one has touched on yet... If you're looking to play online with other people, don't get a Wii. Almost no one goes online anymore. Xbox 360 is the most popular console for this game and therefore has the largest number of online players and the largest number of people on the in-game leaderboards. ...

From some quick Google searching, there are a few sources that come up with bad news: Unfortunately, no, 360-branded Rockband instruments will not be compatible with a Playstation 3. This extends to the PS3 copy of Rockband. Furthermore, an adapter for this kind of deal does not exist either. Sources here and here (to confirm the opposite direction as well)...

Yes, it is possible. I picked up the game second hand. The problem I then had was I couldn't get the export to activate. (I tried the steps here as well.) Finally, I contacted Harmonix support; they asked for evidence of my purchase (in my case "Take a photo of the disc along with your PSN ID written on a piece of paper") and then they sent me an ...

No. Blitz songs work in RB3, though.

Yes, this is possible. I currently own the ion Drumset and the Turtle Beach PX21 headset. I have played drums and sang at the same time ( it's rather difficult!). Just don't expect to play drums and be in a voice chat party at the same time because if you don't talk, the headset will start to pick up the sound of the Drumset. (Though, during my gameplay,...

Save your profile and save game data to a USB flash drive and then bring the flash drive to your friend's house. When you arrive, plug in the flash drive and you should have access to your profile and any save games you have saved to the drive. The advantage to this over simply saving the save game to the cloud storage is that it is much easier to login to ...

If you have Gold you may be able to save your game to the cloud and then log into your XBL account at your friend's place. If you can save it to the cloud you will get your avatars.

It is no longer possible to achieve this goal / achievement / trophy, due to changes in the layout and functionality of RockBand.com. Here's what Harmonix has to say about it: We’re sorry, but account linking is no longer available for Rock Band 3 on RockBand.com. The layout and functionality of RockBand.com has changed considerably in the years since the ...

I'm fairly sure that if you use the Microsoft Xbox360 wireless adapter, because they use the same protocol, third-party accessories should pair as well. As far as drivers go, anything that works with the MS xb360 controller should work fine.
