Today I woke up with the intention to make a whole bunch of drum charts, however, I got distracted and that did not happen. I uploaded a few new ones from Guitar Hero Van Halen and Rock Band in Guitar Hero drum format as well as MIDI pro adapter format. Thank you to Pedro for making the Van Halen charts, providing me with the Van Halen MIDI files, and helping with Guitar Hero drum support. and thank you to zzUrbanSpaceman for providing me with MIDI files.
Guitar Hero drums are now supported. I have not yet made a tutorial video for them, however, the setup and playback is exactly the same as the MIDI pro adapter except you download GH format files also available here.
While I was distracted I had a look into the format of pro instrument files and they are much more complicated than I expected. I think support will be possible but it is going to take some time and I don't plan on even starting to work on them until I have finished making all of the drum (and possibly vocals) charts that I intend to make. So I would not expect pro instrument support in the near future.
I have been getting a lot of questions regarding the possible support for standard guitar lately so I thought I would include a section covering that topic. I looked into it this morning and things do not look good. The only possible way other than very heavily modifying a guitar I can think of would be to use a MIDI pro adapter on the pro guitar setting. I tried using the adapter on multiple Guitar Hero games and it was only recognized as a standard controller, so unless there is another guitar controller with a MIDI input out there that I do not know about, there is no possibility of guitar support for Guitar Hero games. I do not currently have any Rock Band games with me so I was not able to try the adapter with Rock Band, but even if it was recognized I think it is very unlikely that it will work. In order to work, the adapter would have to accept five different MIDI notes as the five buttons on screen as well as strum and since it is not designed to function as a normal guitar controller I think it is pretty unlikely that there is a possibility of it working in the unlikely chance that is is recognized as a guitar. If anybody has any ideas on how to add guitar support please let me know and I will look into it, but for now I think guitar support is not possible.
When I was fooling around in Reaper today I decided to look into adding vocals support. I assigned sounds to the vocals track of the MIDI file for different songs and played it back and it seems to work. I can't test it until I return to Canada because I currently do not have a microphone with me. Assuming it works, I will begin to record and upload videos for each song with a specific achievement as well as careers for Rock Band and Guitar Hero Van Halen to YouTube. I also plan on making harmonies for The Beatles Rock Band. As long as you have reasonably loud speakers and a USB microphone for your Xbox or PS3 this should, theoretically, 100% the song every time.
