Question about EA - Electronic Arts Rock Band

To play Rock Band without vocals?

When I chose to start a solo tour on Rock band with my guitar hero guitar, this pops up on the screen:

"no microphone has been detected, please connect microphone to play as vocalist"

I don't want to play as a vocalist, i want to play guitar only. I don't even have a microphone, so at the moment it won't let me play ANYTHING! I've gone through all the settings and can't find a way to change it to guitar.

Do i need a microphone to play Rock Band as a guitarist? OR does that message mean that the game is faulty?

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!!

We went through this all too. Even took the game back and the same thing happened. After scratching our heads we decided to hook up the PS3 to the Playstation network. When we turned on the Rockband game it downloaded some things off of the network and works perfectly fine now. Quite simple to do!

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?

I just bought the warriors of rock guitar hero at best buy, have it all set up but doesnt recognize the microphone? Can anyone help? Drums and guitar work fine


if the item is used, it may be a problem with the actual item, otherwise, you should make sure that the game and system are up to date when it comes to updates.

My wireless guitar is working but it keeps asking for a microphon


It could be that the joystick controller needs to be remapped to a different location. The microphone overlays the joystick, but if the stick is mapped to one port and microphone is mapped to another you can get this sort of conflict.

PS3 Guitar Hero World Tour Microphone stopped working


POSTED @ 1713 (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) FEBRUARY 6, 2009 BY JOEBOBMCSLOB:


I know it's frustrating but here goes:

  1. Get a PS3 camera (PLAYSTATION EYE - is what mine says on the back). Not sure if it HAS to be the one from Sony (Playstation Eye) or if any other will work, but my PS3 camera from Sony I bought did work perfectly for this "crack"
  2. Unplug the Guitar Hero microphone and set it off to the side somewhere. IT MUST BE UNPLUGGED FROM THE PS3 FOR THIS TO WORK
  3. Go into the Guitar Hero game and plug in your PS3 camera, the blue light on the camera will come on
  4. Now plug in the Guitar Hero microphone
  5. Now go to the training mode, or start a band, or whatever you want and you will see that the vocals are enabled
  6. Simply unplug your PS3 camera and you can use the microphone that came with Guitar Hero, like you're supposed to be able to
I know this is a BAD, BAD, BAD experience for you to go through, but I think it had something to do with PS3 system updates after they released all the hardware and software for Guitar Hero III. Hopefully you didn't return all your gear already...

I don't work for Sony, I'm an electrical engineer/gamer hobby enthusiast.


Hope that helps!

Cheers!
