I have a few Lips wireless mics and those don't work with the adapter. It's my understanding that there are no wireless mics that currently work with XB1 (other than headsets).

That's too bad. I really like my lips mics. I was planning on keeping my 360 around for RB just for Keyboards, but I guess the wireless mics are another plus too. How is the gameplay on 4 vs. 3?

I don't know why you would. The wireless legacy adapter was $25

Well, people who sounded like they knew what they were talking about initially said that the only way you'd be able to get the ION kit working was creating a new MIDI brain/controller portion of the kit. That sounded reasonable, so I believed them.

That was after it was announced they wouldn't be supporting it natively. You would have to somehow translate the ION output signals to X1 input signals. You would accomplish this through either a new brain or some kind of "wired adapter"

Honestly, I've only just now gotten around to downloading everything I'd purchased. I've put in a few hours now and I like it. There's a tour mode again, which I like. They seem to have tightened up the note detection, which I thought wasn't great when it first came out. Initially I was having a hell of a time getting things calibrated, but one of the patches must have fixed that. I still only have the ION drums, so I haven't tried drumming yet, but I'll probably completely switch over to 4 once that other adapter is out, despite having a ton of customs on 3.

Re: Rock Band 4 (XB1/PS4, 2015)

I was all excited about "Where Is My Mind", especially coming out in time for Mr Robot Season 2. Then I see more Billy Joel? Hell to the Yes!

Rock This Town should be pretty fun too, if an awful short song.

Looking through the list of Billy Joel RB DLC, that's 15 tracks already released. My best guess to which song this will be is "Matter of Trust". It's a hit and also pretty guitar-heavy.
If not that, I suppose "Shameless" or "Tell Her About It" would be next most likely. Could be "Uptown Girl" as well, though I hope not --they haven't released anything from An Innocent Man yet.

Yes. Even the Rivals stuff at retail is just the regular RB4 disc and a Rivals DLC code.

Shouldn't that be "Exit 802" for the date?

Belinda Carlisle and The Barbazons add tracks to the Rock Band Music Library this week.

Belinda Carlisle’s classic track, “Heaven Is a Place on Earth”, is a catchy, energetic tune that is sure to be fun for the whole band. Drummers can get revved up for that sweet drum solo, and vocalists will enjoy singing the notable lyrics and memorable melody line. There are varied guitar parts throughout the track that includes two guitar solos. The second solo is sure to be harder than the first, so guitarists, be prepared for that outro section.

The Barbazons’ track, “Bad Catholics”, joins the Rock Band Music Library this week. Vocalists are going to be challenged in this track, as the melody is often hard to pin down. Be sure to head on over to Practice Mode to master any tricky sections. This track is also perfect for beginner drummers, and will have a great opportunity for aspiring rhythm makers to accelerate their drumming career.


These DLC tracks are available individually for $1.99 each.

Belinda Carlisle - “Heaven Is a Place on Earth”
The Barbazons - “Bad Catholics”
