  1. Sunshine of your Love - The Cream in E Standard on Bass.. PLEASE! I know the origninal RS had it, but it is not exportable to RS Remastered. And Customs Forge has a re-do by Jimi Hendrix (not that this isnt great as well, but really want the original).
  2. Any suggestions for a good A/BY pedal with ground lift? I like this option being as its the "Cheapest and Simplest"! I was looking at this https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/BigShotABYv2--radial-bigshot-aby-true-bypass-switch-pedal but if there is something cheaper but just as good Im all ears!
  3. Hey Wndwlicker...lol at name... I play bass as well. I currently have a Ampeg BA112 studio Amp, which is why I want to use that, but still have a feed going thru my PC for Rocksmith as well. I noticed while playing a song I THOUGHT I had down thru Rocksmith PC, when I played thru my Amp I was sloppy as hell. So rather than learn bad habits because I cant hear them that well thru PC, I want to play thru amp so all the nasties can be addressed as soon as I hear them! firekorn...ya I did hear groundloop can be a problem. But for now I dont use any effects pedals, only the built in EQ and distortion I have in my amp. So I will just have to experiment. I also read going from guitar > a decent inline tuner > ABY can eliminate that ground loop.
  4. Thanks... So will the below work? Im thinking you plug the bass into the Input, the Real Tone cable into the THRU put, and the amp into the output b or a... https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/M196--mxr-m196-a-b-box?mrkgcl=28&mrkgadid=3308753579&rkg_id=0&product_id=M196&campaigntype=shopping&campaign=aaShopping%20-%20SKU%20-%20Guitars&adgroup=Guitar%20Pedals%20%26%20Effects%20-%20MXR%20-%20m196&placement=google&adpos=1o5&creative=290335235243&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=Cj0KCQjw-b7qBRDPARIsADVbUbXG0DYn8AucwdbSqb68W90UyQjemlB3ZD05VTK8SSl_nHJ4RW_ZUy0aArBdEALw_wcB
  5. Sweet deal on that P-Bass.... not sure if yours was a Mex Fender or Indonesia but damn for $399 that was a steal! Now they only have $647 MX Fenders.... I can tell you that Rocksmith does NOT have an issue with shortscale bass. I play a Ibanez GSRM shortscale and it works great (at least with E-stnd and Eb tunings..having tried lower tunings yet, and those MIGHT be an issue).
  6. Hey all! Sorry if this question has been asked 100 times, tried to search but couldn't really find a match... (my lack of search parameter skills more than likely) But as the title states, I would like to play my bass thru my amp, then thru my PC. Can this be done? And if so what gear do I need? I want to do it this way as it is hard to hear my Bass thru Rocksmith. And I have noticed if I THINK I sound good in RS, then plug into my amp... the amp REALLY accentuates those areas where I DO NOT sound as good as I think I do! Any help would be awesome....thanks in advance all!
  7. The biggest issue...in my mind.... of the downturn in the gaming industry and especially Ubisoft... is the going to the mindless console platforms and putting out trash (looking at Fallout 76 and the utter failure of being able to capitalize on an established named game). thats my take on gaming in general. Software companies need to pull their heads out of their collective asses and realize you still need to put out a quality product. Be it games, software, or anything in general. Right now major companies (Ubi included) are hitting rock bottom IMHO. Back to music in general... I dont see the downfall of music (guitar in particular). Look at bands like Iron Maiden, after 30+ years, still selling out 80,000+ crowds. The hunger is still there and always will be there for those of us that play and appreciate music.
