Guitar Hero is a game that allows you to become a rock star who plays the guitar or drums. If you enjoy music online, listen to your favourite songs on the radio and yearn to become like the stars you see in music videos or concerts, you can learn to play the drums like a superstar on your Guitar Hero system. You have to practice, learn the tricks that help you along the path to success and combine your talents with the other players in the game, but if you do, you can feel just like a rock star.


  1. 1

    Install the most recent update for your Guitar Hero game. Go to the download page of Guitar Hero to locate this data. Having the latest updates helps the game to perform well and allows it to communicate effectively with your USB controllers.

  2. 2

    Plug your drum kit into your system. Place the USB reception device into your game console for your percussion set. Keep in mind that you do not have the ability to use Wii instruments with your laptop or desktop, but PlayStation or Xbox drum kits will work correctly.

  3. 3

    Download any drivers your system requires. After you insert your drum set into place, your computer may ask you to download certain drivers to enable your instrument to work. If you see this message, download these drivers.

  4. 4

    Download and install PS360 MIDI. This enables your percussion instrument to operate correctly with your game. When the installation finishes, make sure the software can communicate with the wireless device of the game system by re-syncing the two items.

  5. 5

    Install LoopBE 1, which lets your percussion set connect with your computer. When the download completes, boot your computer again. Once your computer is on, press your mouse on the new program logo that appears in the lower right portion of your screen to ensure that the drums and computer can communicate.

  6. 6

    Set up your PS360 MIDI software. After you start the software, you need to input the information for each component of your drums. Tweak the sounds you get on the drums until you come up with adjustments that sound good. Though the pitches may differ, begin with a frequency of 30 and raise the levels according to your own desires.
