The Mad Catz Rock Band 3 Wireless MIDI PRO Adapter is an officially licensed (endorsed) MIDI input adapter designed specifically for use with Rock Band 3; it allows musicians and players to utilize their real MIDI keyboards or drum sets with the Rock Band 3 game. The MIDI PRO Adapter plugs into the console via a USB port and operates as a translator for the console; more specifically it converts the instruments outgoing MIDI messages into console controller data allowing for full use with the Rock Band 3 on screen prompts. The Adapter will also include console specific buttons and full directional pad support for navigation of on-screen menus. The Mad Catz Rock Band 3 Wireless Midi PRO Adapter will be released sometime in late 2010, most likely alongside the release of Harmonix' Rock Band 3 game.

The Mad Catz Wireless MIDI PRO Adapter also includes additional features such as a velocity sensitive adjustment for MIDI drums which helps reduce cross-talk during game-play, a removable belt clip which allows the device to be worn on the waist, and seamless console integration and compatibility for all available next-gen consoles.
