raynebc;4250372 said:I disagree. It's been said that the MIDI pro connected without a pro guitar will signal to RB3 as a Squier (triggering the 22 fret versions of pro guitar charts). I could have sworn somebody indicated that connecting a Mustang to the console via the MIDI adapter caused the 17 fret pro guitar charts to be displayed. If that's the case, then the adapter sends the device's keep alive as-is, and the YouRock guitar would be able to signal as a Mustang to trigger 17 fret pro guitar charts. If that's not the case, then I was mistaken.

mikeyts;4250444 said:This would suggest that the game determines whether to use the 22-fret or 17-fret version of the charts according to whether the controller is the MIDI Pro Adapter or not and not due to any information passed to it by Squier; the Squier itself is not a game controller, but can be used as a source of input to the MIDI Pro Adapter, which is. There's also no reason whatsoever that HMX would have spent any effort programming either the Mustang or MIDI Pro Adapter to deal with that scenario.
mikeyts;4250444 said:After you plug it into a MIDI cable, the Mustang will not send any messages over that cable until your put it into MIDI controller mode, and AFAICT it doesn't send anything that any other MIDI guitar controller would.
raynebc;4250671 said:Their website skimps on that detail, but every picture of the guitar I've seen shows it only has 21 frets.

tmcd35;4251350 said:They've announced the firmware update and it should be released in the next week or two. All you need is the Mad Catz MIDI Pro adaptor to make it work. Mad Catz have released a version of the MIDI Pro for the PS3 - so there's no reason for it not to work.I have a PS3. I'll being buying the MIDI Pro adapter the day the firmware update is released and testing it in game as soon as it is delivered.
tmcd35;4254114 said:Apparently yesterdays Firmware update adds RB3 pro mode support. It's not v2 of the firmware but the guitar does behave as YRG Forums suggest it should - "Hold down MUSIC and GAME buttons until both stay on" - when I do this the LED says 'rb' which I assume means 'Rock Band Mode'.I seem to be having problems ordering a Midi Pro adapter now! Mad Catz online store seems to be the only place in the UK that does them and they are showing back ordered! Should have ordered one a couple of days ago when they had them in stock.

For those of you interested and have the cash, I would wait for the Squire which is a real guitar and a real midi controller. The You Rock Guitar is an over priced toy that may work better now but it did nothing for me.
