   Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum but I have been playing RS14 since it came out for the PS3. Picked up my first guitar, ps3, and RS14 at the same time hoping to learn how to play. I fell in love and played loud through the big speakers on 2 player all night every night with friends. I bought a ton of dlc's + the original RS with the transfer dlc and was really learning to play. Even bought a new Gibson LPJ, a Takamine G series acoustic, and a Ibanez bass for my friends. It was great for a long time.

   Then my troubles started... The PS3 died and I had to get a second one and lost all my stats. Had to start over but no big deal. Then I was on my third failed rocksmith guitar cable having fixed 2 and replaced 1. Still not something I couldn't fix. Then I got a PS4 and purchased the game for that platform, re-starting stats again and also uploading all my dlc's for the third time witch was a pain.

   Now the real problem! Ever since The PS4 I have a terrible audio clipping / cutout issue sometimes on 1p and always on 2p. I can momentarily cure it by switching to and from the ps system audio output settings. I have tried all possible settings and connections on the tv, radio, ps4, and guitar for countless hours and have searched to find the problem is known but developers cant fix it. {Its not my gear!}

   I also noticed more delay on the new system but figured it was just me playing faster and I was noticing the latency more as I improved. The audio issues were so bad we quit playing the game altogether. Recently I set up my old PS3 in the man cave and plugged it into an old 70's tube type 700w Kenwood receiver amp and some towers. Holy cow did it kick ass! No Question my latency dropped dramatically and no more clipping type issues. I forgot how awesome Rocksmith was.

   I am totally happy playing through my PS3, but now I cant get a bunch of dlc's I already purchased to load from the ps store onto my PS3 without paying again. I think there all the ones I had gotten after I switched to the PS4. I really feel as if I've been jerked around and ripped off at this point having bought RS1, RS14, RS14 for PS4, and 2 separate cables online, + probably hundreds of dollars in dlc's over the years.

   Seems as if the PC version is the preferred way to go and little support has been issued toward the platform players. Don't think the ps store is going to let me download them all onto a p.c. if I go buy it again either. I cant play well over $60.00 worth of downloads I paid for, and I'm doing it on my old platform. This sucks! 

   Can someone please help me answer some questions on these subjects so we can hopefully start enjoying this system again or at least reach a conclusion. Also interested in CDLC's but have heard and read it is difficult and risky witch I'm not interested in either one of the two. I don't want to go through hell and hack my system just to get free tunes and risk my accounts, etc.

   Thank you for any help you can be. All information is good for an idiot like myself.

So what is the question?   


If its about dlc that you payed for it would be better to use the official forum.

Cut your losses and invest in the PC version. If you feel robbed, then there are other ways you can get your purchased dlc onto the PC, though discussion on this topic is not permitted here, and PMing folk about it will get you swiftly banned.

As MaZtoR stated, you'd be best posting your questions on the official site.
