How do I sync my Rock Band 4 controllers on the PlayStation®4?

You do NOT need to sync microphones - as long as a controller is synced to your console, plug in your microphone via USB and you're good to go!

  1. Make sure your PlayStation®4 is turned on and on the Main Menu.
  2. Make sure the Rock Band 4 controller that you are trying to sync has fresh batteries.
  3. From the PlayStation®4's Main Menu, navigate to Settings --> Devices --> Bluetooth Devices.
  4. Press and hold the PlayStation® button on your instrument. This is found in the center of your drum kit or next to the D Pad on your guitar.
  5. A blue light around the PlayStation® symbol should turn on and start blinking slowly. This means the controller is waiting to sync.
  6. Press and hold the small wireless button on your Rock Band 4 controller (for drums, this is a black button found on the bottom left side of the main center brain. For guitars, this is a white button found where the amp plug would be). You only need to hold down this button for a maximum of two seconds.
  7. A blue and red light on your controller should start blinking alternately. This means the controller is trying to sync with your console.
  8. Wait for the controller to show up in the list of Bluetooth Devices on your PlayStation®4. It should appear as "MadCatz Guitar for Rock Band 4" or something similar for each different controller.
  9. You will be asked if you want to connect to the controller. Select Yes.
  10. You will be asked to assign a profile to the controller. PLEASE NOTE: You must assign a profile to the controller you are syncing in order to play Rock Band 4. if you choose not to assign a profile, the controller will not sync to the console. If you do not have a profile created, you can log in as a guest by selecting Create New --> Guest Profile.
  11. After a few moments, the blue and red alternating lights will change to a solid blue light. If the light is steady and not changing colors, this means your controller has synced.
    1. Side Note: If your controller has a steady RED light, this means your controller has low batteries.
  12. If your controller continues to blink blue and red, repeat step 6 until the controller shows up under the list of Bluetooth Devices.
  13. Once your controller has synced, press the PlayStation® button to get back to the Main Menu and boot up Rock Band 4. Once in-game, press the Options button to join in and start rocking!
