It’s always been our mission to ensure that you can play as many of your tracks as possible in the core game of the platform – to that end we’ll always work to make export a possibility for our latest titles. We do the best we can to allow you to condense as much of your music library as possible. Sometimes, however, due to a variety of licensing and other reasons, certain songs may not make it over. We’ve still got over 3,000 songs available as DLC and the bulk of your Rock Band on disc library is still playable in RB3. If there are tracks you’d love to see in the future please feel free to let us know by using rockband.com/request.
