Rock Band controllers only let me be the microphone/leader, ???

When put my Rock Band CD in the Wii, it only lets my primary controller be the microphone/leader, how do I change it to guitar/leader? I tried my 2nd controller too, and it only let that be the microphone too? Is there a step by step guide to signing these controllers and picking the instrument you want it to be???

Wiimotes are for vocalists only (because the microphone doesn't have its own buttons). Navigate the menus with the guitar or drums to use them in-game.

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 have 2 guitars, 1 mic and 1 set of drums.. the wii keeps saying that I can only have 4 controllers hooked up and won't let me use all 4 pieces. If I unhook 1 thing, it works fine.. why can't I play all...


because when you use the microphone you also use a regular controller to select stuff and join the band so on that note you have 5 controllers (2 guitars 1 drumset 1 mic and the controller for the mic)

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.

How do I get the wired microphone to work for Wii Rock Band 2?


you must plug in a controler to control that player, plug in a usb controler and the player will be able to join in, this is also the same on the xbox 360, at first we just plugged in the mic and it did not work, after plugging in the controler and the mic, all was well. Good luck, hope this helps

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!

Microphone


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

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....

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.
