This video, via Nay-Seven, is a demo of using a Rock Band 3 Fender Mustang as an alternative music controller:
Here a patch I’ve made in Usine to use the midi guitar Mustang from Rock Band 3. With this patch you can use open tuning, run effects or samples with the buttons of the guitar and send Y and Z accelerometers to effects.
Patch will be available as an addon on the website.
The Rock Band 3 Fender Mustang control sells for around $125.
Features for musicians include:
- 17-fret touch-sensitive neck with 6 buttons per fret – for 102 active finger positions
- 6 low-latency strings for “authentic” note strumming
- Advanced tilt sensor
- Use as MIDI Guitar Controller when not playing Rock Band (compatible with most MIDI sequencers)
