Guitar Hero and Rock Band Controller Compatibility

This guide is taken from the ScoreHero forum thread, The Official Controller Compatibility Guide compiled by User_IWillKickU IWillKickU. This guide is designed to help answer the common question, "Does X guitar work with X game, on X system?" If you have anything to add please feel free to edit this page.

Rock Band Track Packs Note: All Rock Band Track Packs (including the AC/DC pack) run on the Rock Band 1 engine so any compatibility that applies to RB1 applies to the track packs. EXCEPT the AC/DC pack for Wii which is compatible with the Les Paul and GHWT guitar (without touch slider functionality).

Unorthodox Compatibility (PS2)

For all games Post GHIII (GH:A onwards), USB compatibility was introduced, allowing for some unorthodox combinations of official instrument controllers from other consoles.

General Troubleshooting

The most common problem reported is that the whammy bar does not function properly. If Windows is detecting your controller, but won't allow you to use it in-game, try unistalling the game, and the device drivers completely and reinstalling.
Add your troubleshooting tips HERE!

Multiplayer

Two players cannot both be mapped to the the keyboard. To overcome this problem, you may create a virtual GH controller supported by the GH software, through the use of PPJoy and registry modification to rename the virtual joystick. Then, GlovePIE is used to map the real, unsupported controller to the virtual controller. For the other player, GlovePIE maps the controller to the keyboard, as usual. This permits multiplayer with any combination of controllers.
