In Topic: Completely distorted/crackly sound in Rocksmith 2014, Windows 10 v1803

are you using the calibration setting during tuning up? I have to do this each time i start the game, i found manually setting gain problematic, tone wise.

also on mic settings make sure make sure exclusivity is ticked.

hey, was just thinking, i dont use learn a song much, go straight to score attack, as long as its got dynamic difficulty ,

i just got highway star from official site. and made it to the end on easy.with the headphones on it was epic.

sadly a lot of cdlc dosn't have DD, i always send a thank you, to the people who take the time to add DD .

keep rockin.

ps i learnt a bit . by watching uploads of rocksmith videos , on YT, really helped.

I found a few times where DD actually made playing a song more problematic than it needed to be e.g. providing odd fingering, which when DD is increased to 100% turns out to a barred chord or similar, I find often the best route is crank DD to 100% and drop the song to 50% speed, then increase 10% each time you've nailed it completely, up until 80% then increase  in increments of 5% speed.

Not sure why you say "return" because it was never there to begin with. I mean there's a tag for it in oDLC but RS ignores it as it was probably something they dropped during dev.

return as in;

RS - could

RS 2014 - could'nt

RS 2014 Remaster - feature didn't return (from RS)

Since RS has no way of using the up or downstroke indicator, there's no way to impact the graphic display with that data.


Hmm, i'd hoped that remaster might have returned the ability.

In Topic: How can i make a good tone with a digital amp?

09 April 2018 - 12:22 PM

firstly play some music through (e.g. plug your phone in) it for half a dozen hours or more with cushion or something in front of the speaker (to bed the speaker in)


get the amp up off the floor (the tone changes dramatically depending on height and placement in a room)

is it open back? if so you need to have play with the distance from a wall or just completely open.


typically, the best tones can be found via

adjusting each dial to point where it dips in an out (the sweet spot) sonically (on tone dials & gain dial) - that'll give you a basic clean to break up to be adjusted by your guitar volume/tone dials

make note of your settings then tweak from there, to each type of tone you want

again take notes 

of the best settings.


that's my method, but I could be completely wrong.
