I hope this is BS. I read something about RB3 adding something to change the way we play music games, but a keytar?
Rock Band: Devo.
The keytar, the worst musical instrument since.... well its the only useless instrument known to man :S
better than an accordion or cowbell lol
woot! i was right. i knew there would be a keytar
Gosh, I don't know how I feel about Mad Catz...
Unless their instruments mimick that of current Rock Band instruments, I don't think I'll like em'.
I'm quite fond of the Rock Band Guitar design. The buttons are easy to press with minimal pressure, and allow for easy hand movement, such as reaching for the orange button. Guitar Hero's are far inferior, in my opinion.
Also, I like the longness and non-clickiness of the strum bar. The Guitar Hero one is much too short... I get blisters on my thumb from using that short, stubby thing.
Few things I note from this.
If it is true then I can guarantee I won't be buying. It better not be an integral part, we don't need extra gimmicky instruments.
2. All New RB3 instruments
The Good: Madcatz is a third party and some of their stuff HAS been released in the UK so we might just get improved instruments
The Bad: We still don't have the RB2 instruments and if they are under say so from EA and HMX then they might not give us them STILL. Also Keytar is gimmicky and not worth my time.
If you haven't tried the Madcatz instruments yet, you owe it to yourself to try them out. They've done an outstanding job on them, to be sure. They outclass the original Rock Band's instruments by a mile(admittedly they were terrible, so that's not difficult), and they at the very least compare to the quality of the instruments offered with RB2. Though I'd say they're better.
And now for my own opinions! If it's keytar vs a regular keyboard, they solves the whole "where do I put it while I play?" problem I was having. At the same time though, this would be yet another different "instrument" to learn, and I'm not sure I'm up for learning keytar. If it was a normal keyboard, then maybe. I guess none of this matters cause all the big stuff will rain down upon us once E3 has arrived.
I really doubt it'll happen, but it'd be cool if they added keytar to older tracks with keyboard (Muse comes to mind).
I found this:
Apparently some people are passionate
Keytars = Metal. Hopefully Alestorm will make a surprise appearance.
Yes. He has a purple keytar with stickers of sea creatures on them. No, he's not gay as far as I know.
Isnt the original game guitars technically "keytars" ?
I knew it! Both Nevervision and Harmonix said that they are moving away from the peripheral market (but I'm skeptical with the Warriors of Rock bundles that surfaced recently...oh well!). To me, this is like a valid excuse for Harmonix so they can "safely chart keyboard parts when a guitar is not played" and to avoid looking silly a la Guitar Hero.
This game will be a day-one purchase for me, no matter what!
It would be cooler if they incorporated synth with that as well. I'm talking full keyboard (Or at least enough keys for any song), pitch bend/mod wheels, different setting knobs, and maybe a KAOSS pad if they can get some deal going with KORG. I would cry tears of joy if that happened. It most likely won't, but I can dream...
Heheheh, It's funny because it's true!
My girlfriend has been like "They need a keyboard for Rock Band!"
So it's pretty cool they're adding a keytar!
It will mix her liking for keyboards with that guitar look and feel.
It will definitely be interesting to learn how to play that while looking at the tv!
