Do I need a microphone to play the guitar with Rock Band?

Every time I try to play the guitar it keeps telling me to plug in microphone to the UBS port. I am getting ready to throw this game away.

Are you selecting the song, outfit, etc... using the xbox controller or the guitar controls? If the regular controller is used then the game thinks you are trying to use a mic.

If you are just going to play guitar you do not need to plug in a microphone.

Have you tried reassigning the guitar to another controller port, one that's not linked to the microphone? Or are you using a different dongle with the guitar than what came with it?

Do I need more than one Wii remote for Band hero Wii????


you need a wii remote for each instrument and the microphone. you need one remote for the drums, one for the bass guitar player, one for the guitar, and one in close proximity to the microphone user. you have to set a wii remote near the microphone once the microphone is plugged into the USB port in the back of the wii console. i think there is something like a 10 foot radius meaning if the wii remote is too far from the microphone it will disconnect. so you can do only one instrument per wii remote you are using.

Guitar Hero Guitar with Rock Band disc


It depends on which version of Rock band you are playing, Rock band 1 will not work with Guitar Hero guitars at all, but Rock Band 2 on the wii will except them. and for the microphone you have to have a seperate wiimote sync'd up tho count as the controller for the the game to recognize the mic.

Unfortunately, the guitar that comes with the Guitar Hero does not work with Rock Band or Rock Band 2. Rock Band, as you mentioned, recognizes the Wiimote as the controller for the microphone.

Unfortunately, you will have to get a guitar that is specifically designed for Rock Band.

I know this isn't the answer that is popular, but if you vote for my solution, please vote at least "Thanks for Trying".

Thanks for using Fixya!

Wii always detects microphone and wont let us play the guitars


Try using the guitar from the main page on to navigate through the menus (ie: using the red/blue/green/yellow buttons to select, etc). If you use the Wiimote, it will think you are using vocals, thus requiring a mic.

To play Rock Band without vocals?


Seriously you guys are hilarious, nobody's even given this guy a true and or correct answer. I too have had this problem and it's INFURIATING. Just trying to play the damn game: No you don't have to download anything

Solution:

Enter Game mode/ Training mode whatever mode USING THAT INSTRUMENT. I repeat DO not use the controller (the xbox360 controller) unless you want to use the microphone. It makes sense the microphone has no control hence by default if your'e using the controller the game THINKS you want to play with the microphone.

ROCK ON!!

Playing Rock Band 2 without a microphone


you have to use the green and red keys on the guitar to navigate the software...not the WII remote if you want to use the guitar.. THe WII remote is ONLY used for the Microphone.

On the drums you use the red and Green drum to navigate for the drum...not the WII remote....

I got my daughter Wii Rockband-she is so mad and me to because we can't figure out how to let her play it-like play the guitar without the microphone-everytime she tries to play it, it says it doesn't...


Rock Band is a 4 player game, each player taking their own role. They can choose from Guitar, Bass, Drums or Microphone. If your daughter wants to play guitar and sing at the same time, she will need to play a multiplayer game and use 2 Mii profiles, one for guitar and one for singing. 
A single player cannot play 2 instruments using the same Mii either. You must use separate profiles.
