Honestly, I respect pro players, but eh, pro mode (outside of drums/vocals) doesn't really match up with the way I play rock band (mostly party enviroments) where we tend to jump from song to song, and the format doesn't work the best for sightreading, for pro guitar/bass stuff I tend to prefer Rocksmith and never really had much of a interest in keys, I understand there are some people there who loved pro mode, but eh, for me nothing lost.

But I actually get their point of omitting them from RB4 (not "rocky" enough or something), but I'm not sure it was the right move, or I think they should now steer away from keys heavy DLC, for fear of rubbing it in.

 

Considering they released "Jane" and "Africa" I'd say it's too late for that.

 

...for pro guitar/bass stuff I tend to prefer Rocksmith...

 

As I recall Harmonix made that exact point when they announced pro instruments wouldn't return.

 

Yeah, keys are gone for good reason. Alex Lifeson once pointed out that it was hard to write guitar parts for 80s synth-heavy Rush because guitar and keys share the same style and range in the sense where you can either have one or the other be prominent, not both. As Farottone said, it was either fun on keys or fun on everything else...mostly.

I never thought about that but now you mention it I can recall times where the keys have greatly outshone the guitar in a song, and vice versa.

 

I wonder if HMX actually frequent this site, I know the DLC released has been pretty popular songs but I could swear they seem.... "inspired" choices, and nothing like the DLC they used to release.

 

I wonder if they noticed how popular modern pop music choices have been for customs and figured they'd adjust their DLC releases accordingly :tinfoil:
