Any midi device that can output notes C3 to C5 through 5 PIN MIDI cable can be used to play pro keys. If your device only have USB MIDI you can use a computer to translate to 5 PIN MIDI cable.


So in your case you'd need a computer, a Type B to Type A USB cable,a USB to MIDI cable and of course the MIDI adapter for rock band.

I´m courious too, hahaha, i have a Yamaha PSR-343, is the older model of your keyboard, so, someday I asked to a selesperson on a music store recently the same question, and yes, has a MIDI-USB cable to play on pc or others devices but i didn't know if works on a midi pro adapter for rock band 3.
Thanks for the tips Alternity, but the C3 and C5 in this case is the octaves from the C notes ? (i'm newbie in keyboard theory, i'm a guitar player).

Yes, they are the 25 keys that RB3 expects for Pro Keys.
