In Topic: I need laptop advice

I would go for an SSD Boot drive, and install Rocksmith on it, as loading songs when starting RS is probably much faster,

which is a real pain, when you chart cdlc, and have to enter and exit RS 10 times in an hour for testing and correcting!


A Rocksmith installation with about 3.000 songs may require 30GB Harddisk space.

Of course you don't have to load all the songs every time, you can remove them temporary with the Songmanager.


So once you are in, you may like to keep RS in the Background, but that doesn't economize the systems energy, 

which may need a correct cooling fan. A gamer notebook may be a good solution, if you don't intend to carry it around often.

Keep in mind that RS is a Game, programmed like a Game, with DirectX.


I would also check for as much USB as possible, about 6, preferably USB3, if you like to add external instruments or sound effects.

Personally I like to use Guitar Rig together with Rocksmith via an external sound card with build in Asio.


And you will need a decent external sound system, speakers, as laptops sound awful and TV HDMI has too much lag.


MSI is exactly at 999, good quality, but if you can do without loading time, highest resolution with all gimmicks on

You can probably go for 2-300 less with an I5 instead of an I7 CPU

I remember she was a requester in the early days, she asked me then to do some country, Poco, I believe.

And then we didn't agree on the Dallas 1 PM topic, and she cancelled our friendship.

And then she just went to a full steam charter, I could never follow her, releasing such a variety of songs.


Though she was a bass player, she didn't forget guitar players.

Still thankful for the 38 Special release.


A hell of a character, with lots of plans,

that's the second person too young I know, stolen by cancer, these last days.

Here you may find her last message


Now I'm afraid there is nothing else but nothing for her,

Our Memories and her Work remain.

Zoom UAC-2 (259€) 


quite expensive stuff, (less for the Focusrite 2i2, about 100€) 

if it's only needed to get rid of RS tones,

and record in a DAW,


as you still need (possibly quite expensive) replacement Guitar Effects as plug-ins,

and considering the real-tone cable hacks


The Firehawk FX (250€) comes as an easy uncomplicated and cheap all-inclusive solution

RS cable is connected from FX send output to USB input, no hack or parallel output needed

@ctrl : have you tried it ?


I don't know if it's emulation or just redirecting the sound data.

I'm using DFX audio enhancer to improve sound, and it adds no latency at all.


I think Asio is a very interesting subject, when you have an external (not onboard) sound card with an asio driver build in i.e.

I'm using a Firehawk FX pedal board, which has an inbuild Asio Driver.


This allows me to use any PC FX Software, like Amplitube, Guitar Rig or Pod, in addition to my Pedal Board sounds,

with about 5ms latency in RS !
