#247051 what causes tone drop?

Posted by firekorn on 21 February 2017 - 01:57 PM

@figital Tone drop can be cause by two main cause as far as i'm aware :


  • Tone not properly define in a song, that will never happen on any ODLC and it's very consistent as it's a tone that is called that will always cause it.
  • CPU/RAM usage that make the tone simulation stop, it's very unclear and i don't have the time or knowledge to deeply test this but i had pretty consistent result for what i've tried so far, as soon as i had some intensive software running in the background, RS tone simulation could just randomly dropped at any tone change no matter if it's CDLC or ODLC or even a simple change in the menu.

So for all i know there's not much to do beside avoiding bad CDLC (note that the tone issue shouldn't happen anymore if people use up to date tools) and avoiding intensive software in the background.

#246653 Can I convert original Rocksmith dlc to work in 2014 with import tool?

Posted by firekorn on 17 February 2017 - 06:18 AM

@BenSalem What you say is really looking you are trying to pirate ODLC from RS1 (that can be played on RS2014 if you own them on steam) so i can't help you and if my suspicion are confirmed you will get ban and have no access to all the CDLC that are available here.


I would seriously think twice about what you are saying now and i strongly suggest you to read the rule carefully.

#246290 I can not locate RockSmith in my pregram files

Posted by firekorn on 12 February 2017 - 06:00 AM

Even simpler : open your steam library, right click on Rocksmith and go to properties. In the Local Files tab, the Browse Local Files button will directly bring you to the root folder of Rocksmith.

#246231 Proper way to play this without hitting center string?

Posted by firekorn on 11 February 2017 - 12:09 PM

You cannot not hit it so you have to mute it. Check the lessons in the game : https://www.reddit.c...ligion/dcrfjbr/

#246216 Can't Hear My Instrument!

Posted by firekorn on 11 February 2017 - 09:22 AM

Since the latest patch, there's another field in the Rocksmith ini file that allow to disable the microphone mode and get back to a more standard situation which can be worth a try but Rocksmith shouldn't mute any audio input...



#245843 Sort by day added

Posted by firekorn on 06 February 2017 - 03:51 PM

@mikejl46 It doesn't work for everyone. So far i don't think anybody have any clear information on where that information comes from so it's impossible to use this to sort out CDLC.

#244987 Rocksmith remastered discussion (part 2)

@Requertie Yes you need to buy Cherub Rock. Without it your CDLC will never appear ingame.

I have my primary PC that runs Rocksmith and that records the game AND the sound (i have the song turned down in the ingame mixer to 60 and the guitar to 100 so that the guitar stands out) with OBS.


And i use a second PC that records the webcam.


I just make sure i have what i need to sync both video before the song start and then i edit everything in Adobe Premiere which allow to put RS display in a nice setup.

Yes, it's what streamer used in general but it's also very useful to record games or PC screen very efficiently.


Here's an exemple of what i get with using OBS + a webcam and small editing :

So you are using a shotgun mic to record a stereo source?


That seems like a lot of trouble since shotgun mic aren't really made to record sound that comes from the sides (and unless i'm missing something it also means that you would end up with a mono recording).


For all i know, every video on youtube that includes RS record the audio with a software on the PC directly to avoid any kind of issue or change in the sound that can be hard to control when doing a recording with a mic (especially when you want to record speakers).


I've always used OBS to get RS audio for all the YT video i've made.

@BusterKnott Unless you record your speakers, it's unlikely you record anything close to what you hear since it will never go through the amp/speaker as you will record the digital sound that is in your PC.


Adding an audio card won't change how the audio is recorded by your software...

#244020 What is this ? (Cross instead of %)

Posted by firekorn on 16 January 2017 - 02:37 PM

@eck340 This is because the song don't have any arrangement available in the path you are actually in.

#243610 Did I Miss Something?

Posted by firekorn on 11 January 2017 - 04:41 PM

@SuperSonic I'm offering solution but if you don't want to use them that's fine with me...


Many user have no issue using the tools and if you do, please create post in the appropriate section about it. dev can't know if something is wrong if nobody ever point it out... As long as you don't speak about your issue, they won't be fix unless someone else talk about it.

#243280 Does anyone else think depth of field in Rocksmith 2014 is absolutely awful?

Posted by firekorn on 08 January 2017 - 06:50 PM

As i said, it's pointless like a tons of so called graphical "options".

#242959 CDLC for console players?

Posted by firekorn on 06 January 2017 - 11:19 AM

@Trovahkiin First it requires to have an hacked console which is far from the majority of users and it isn't possible on the latest generation of console so it really reduce the number of users that can actually properly played CDLC on a console.


Then any psarc can be converted to the platform of your choice using the toolkit and any user that play CDLC on console will likely have a PC or MAC to dl and do the conversion if need be.


Then on another end, where to properly put the available files for each platform? If all version of the CDLC is available in the dl link, some people have issue selecting the proper file and it makes dl slower anyway. If it's in the author note, some people don't read it and it's not as fast to reach the files.
