I have created a way to use a computer to play drums perfectly and obtain this achievement. I have created a video tutorial for this method but I have included full text instructions as well.

Text instructions can be found here.
PLANET13Great job. Thumbs up. Can you please do TTFAF and Freebird on Expert.

CrandyI can try and get them up tonight.

JiTeuBeyI did not try this solution already, but I will (when I will finally find my Red Octane USB to MIDI cable).
Do you think it can work with the achievement of Tré in Green Day Rock Band ?
Is it possible for you to upload that ? ^^
Do you work on other songs ?

Anyway, I'll keep you informed of my progress, and a huge thank you ! ;-)

CrandyYes it is possible and I am going to post more songs along with an update on my progress toward Tre's Greatest Hits in my blog hopefully today or tomorrow.

JiTeuBeyThanks a lot, I'll keep an eye on that. wink

JiTeuBeyI've just tried with the RedOctane cable, but it doesn't work, because apparently, it's just a cable from Midi to USB, and not USB to Midi...
So, I will probably buy a new one... ^^'

CanaDa FwendThis is great! Big thanks because it will help me finish off several games.

I do have a few requests though.

1. "Rock and Roll Band" for the Rock Band Classic Rock Track Pack. The Just Another Band Out of Boston achievement is really challenging because there is no online multiplayer for the game. Help on drums would go a long way.

2. "Intentional Heartache" (or any number of songs) for the Rock Band Country Track Pack 2. This would be for the Giddy On Up achievement and would be helpful for the same reasons.

3. I know this one is a stretch.... All 20 of the expert drum challenges for Rock Revolution. Some of these, such as the Poison Note Challenges, are insanely difficult.

Thanks Again

CrandyI should be able to do both of the track pack requests assuming I can get rips for the games which should not be a problem. I don't think I will be able to do Rock Revolution though because even if I could get a rip of the game I probably would not be able to use the song charts. I might look into it later but it is not something I want to get into right now.

CanaDa FwendNo worries. All of the help is very much appreciated.

ChizzyThis is great for people that can't do it. But it pisses me off that I did it legit and people are doing this. It's so lame.

GoldchubbyAny chance you could upload all the songs from rock band 1? You need 2 people to play the world tour and it had to be local and none of my friends ever wanna play or help me kinda sucks i would appreciate it lots.
Posted by Goldchubby on 06 Nov 13 at 22:33
CrandyIt is something I am going to do in the future. For the next few weeks I don't have time to do any uploads but it it something I plan on doing. Follow my TA blog or by PBaE blog for updates.

xs Silence sxI tried to do this very method back in the day but I could barely find any information pertaining to MIDI at the time. I eventually found another way. I was the inventor of a Raining Blood bass notes simulation method, if you didn't know. And a couple years after that, I wired up two laptops to my World Tour kit and simmed Tre's Greatest. Anyway, nice solution.

WarXEagle2015Wow....cant anyone do anything legit anymore?

MusquitoIs this considered cheating or not? See the comment of the Investigation Manager in Music Game Cheaters

CrandyIt is not considered cheating.
Posted by Crandy on 05 Apr 14 at 16:02
ChizzyIt is cheating. You're using an outside program to play the game for you. It is a mod.
Posted by Chizzy on 12 May 14 at 19:22
CrandyIt has already been explicitly addressed by the IT and is not considered cheating.

"The only item on that list that this comes close to is the last one. This short cut does require PC software to use. However, it does not require modifying the console or the game files to use, which is really what we're after. The software is completely external, and is comparable to using a turbo or programmable macro controller to automate gameplay. Are the people doing this any better or worse than those who use turbo controllers, use YouTube videos to sing into a mic, use chairs as stand-ins for Kinect games, etc? The criteria of the achievements are still being fulfilled."

Please refer to this thread for the quote in context and a more detailed discussion.

KAMIKAZExCOBRAHe's right it is cheating cos you are not doing this your self ie the computer is so in fact it is considered cheating but then again they put these achivements in to make you work for em so you can understand some people's needs to cheat them but it's just another achivement I can live without I'm good on drums I can play expert + but I ain't that good yet il get this eventually tho
