I have a Bronco 40.  Good little amp.


Keep smiling. It makes people wonder what you've been up to.

Guys it is that time again when you get the itch to put your hand in your pocket and purchase new kit.

 

Right I fed up with the volume of my normal speakers and the odd rattle that comes from the tweeters on my 2.1 set so i am looking at getting a midrange amp for using with rocksmith 2014, i read that some guys are using a splitter cable to send the signal to the amp and also to the pc with no latency issues.

can someone tell me if the new fender rumble 40 bass amp will work with rocksmith 2014 if i plug the bass guitar into the amp and use the line out ( XLR with Ground Lift) to plug into the pc with the realtone cable?

i am liking the look of this one as it has the overdrive on it .

fender makes some of the best amps in the world ..and would work wonderfully with rocksmith .. with that said do NOT ever plug the realtone cable into a line out, the current is wrong, and best case scenario, you will fry the cable, or worse, fry the usb port on your pc (dont ask how i learned this) :P

 

i use a ABY splitter box to split the guitar/bass signal to the amp, and to rocksmith. its a generic version of the Morley ABY switch, it only needs power if you want the leds to work, otherwise it is passive and 100% sonically transparent.

 

it has the added bonus of letting me keep my realtone cable tucked out of harms way.  guitar cables are cheap to replace, and easy to repair, the RS cable isnt. 

 

here is a pic of my pedalboard, the aby switch can be seen at the top right side.  feel free to pm me with any questions.. im more than happy to help anyway i can

When I play RS2014 via the laptop I use (1) headphones when learning a song in slow down mode or (2) "Y splitter" into used POD HD500 that feeds a Line6 15w amp when I play a song at full speed. Not a great amp but that POD HD500 is loads of fun to toy with


My Youtube channel is basically a list of Rocksmith's easiest songs because those are the only ones I can play.  :P

I use a Marshall AVT100 with a simple splitter cable to play along with Rocksmith , I dont really use the amp without Rocksmith. I also use a Boss DS 1 , Mooer Reecho , Digitech Whammy DT and a Boss GT-6 ( can't use it as you need a degree in physics to get a decent sound from it)

I got the original Mesa Triple Rectifier from 90's, beast amp for tones on the high watts... unlike the newer ones, it has a 200W max and not 150W. Some argue that it delivers better tones than the new ones.
