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.

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.

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.

Microphone


You need to use a spare wii remote to control the microphone. It's explained in the docs that come with RB2.

Play rock band for wii without mic, drums and guitar only?


Don't use the controller to navigate, that's the vocalist's controls. Go in and out of menus with the instrument you intend on using, don't use the controller.
