  1. I have never used it, but I think the RS Roadie was created to help switching between different sets of songs on the folder level: http://customsforge.com/topic/20212-tool-the-rs-roadie-song-selection-list-modification-and-setlist-manager/

  3. While Rocksmith did help me with guitar technique and playing existing songs, after more than a year it did not really help me with getting creative with my guitar. At first I was fine with that, but at some point I wanted to go beyond just replaying existing songs. Rocksmith's session mode helped me to get a start on improvising, but there is just some theory and knowledge that you need to know that goes beyond what session mode can offer. So I took weekly one-on-one lessons for about 10 months and it was a great thing. I just moved to a different city and haven't looked for a new teacher yet, but that time has helped me a lot. I can know come up with songs of my own - something I did not think could be possible one or two years ago. I am not the most creative person in general, which is part of way I am not yet satisfied with my songwriting. But learing more technique helps with that. All in all: Taking lessons helped me to go beyond where Rocksmith could ever take me. I still use Rocksmith on a daily basis to learn songs I like, and when I feel "lazy" (as in: just want to play without having to think much). Thus, I can recommend the combination of Rocksmith and a real teacher to anyone :-)
  4. A friend of mine has some of those 2-line displays and once I toyed around with them to see if I could get them working. I did, and we even considered cutting the board up, but soon realized there was not enough space to fit it in... You could make an external case and/or stick it to the backside of the board... but in the end I considered that to much effort. I know all the modes of my program and use the LEDs to give me hints where possible, so a display is not really necessary for me. I did, however, integrate a lot of Serial.print() commands into the code. So you can pop up the serial printer and it shows you some of the stuff you would probably want to put on a display. Should help understand the functions ;-)
  5. @@KingCobra Actually I'm glad someone asked :) Here is my latest .ino version: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8722253/Arduino/sketch_footswitch_08.ino Edit: New link https://www.dropbox.com/s/96tsou813nt3o51/sketch_footswitch.ino?dl=0 I have continued working on my program and now use it for other applications and games! I also attached a volume pedal (by Ernie Ball) to the Arduino, specifically the pedal's potentiometer, to be able to send analog signals to the PC. I use this for Window's volume control and scrolling inside Rocksmith. But the main purpose was to enable the control of virtual pedal boards in AmpliTube 4. So... the program now has many more functions than you might need... or maybe you will like them, too! You can download a free trial version of AmpliTube 4, it works with the Rocksmith Cable. If you have questions or suggestions for improvement, please let me know!
  6. "New parameter in the configuration file to adjust or not the density status of chords" "the ability to fix the chord density status in old CDLCs" @Chilipouni thanks for you hard work! Regarding those two quotes for version 3.2, is there anything we have to change in the configuration file to make the density fix work? I downloaded 3.2 betareplaced all the 3.1 files in the Rocksmitih Custom Song Toolkit ddc subfolder (and Toolkit now shows DDC's version as 3.2)Imported an old custom into toolkitchanged version numberhit generate in the toolkitResult: the 100% bug is fixedrepeated chords are shown full and not "ghosted" (= not fixed)Is the ddc beta supposed to fix that last issue, or does the "chord density status" mean something else? Cheers!
  7. This is from the change log of the latest patch... so it is possible that ubisoft fixed it. But our bug appears to be quite random, so maybe Lacey just got lucky and they didn't fix it at all. Just for the record: I got to the point where I would prefer the "seperate metronome CLDC" idea over the current state ;-) (mainly because having the word metronome in the song title would allow sorting, creating lists and in general find metronome songs ingame faster)
  8. Can anyone confirm or deny that the update fixed the crashes?
  9. @@cozy1 I was offline for quite a while, but now I would like to get back to topic concerning the metronome bonus arrangements: Would it be technically possible to change the tickbox "Create Metronome Bonus Arrangement" into "Create additional Metronome CDLC", as suggested by firekorn? The additional psarc could have "_M" in the name (just like "_DD" and "_NDD"), and the string "(Metronome)" added to the fields song title and song title sort. Cheers
  10. Well, now I had my first crash, with a version of my own custom generated by the remastered.exe I created for test purposes. Cannot tell if this is really linked, though. Now I am curious what the devs think about the "creating seperate metronome CDLCs" approach and whether it is technically possible. By the way: Wasn't there at some point the idea of packaging multiple songs into a single psarc file? This could remove another entry from my "cons" list :-)
  11. I guess I could live with seperate metronome DLCs... I see the following pros: Potentially prevent crashesPrevent bugged UIWith the word 'metronome' or similar in the song name, we can search them ingame easilycreating a dedicated metronome playlist and using it in non-stop play would become feasibleI already use seperate DLCs for official songs where I added the metronome... and cons: In an extreme case, our song lists become twice as long. This is visually more unpleasing to me than the bugged UI in the arrangement selectionScrolling through the song list becomes more complicated (although this can be handled with playlists)mastery progress info is seperated and becomes harder to trackWhen uploading, downloading and sharing we have to handle multiple files I will admit that the pros seem to outweight the cons. I am, however, not satisfied with the explanation that the arrangement number alone is the problem. I would instead assume that the problematic CDLC have some other unknown bug that might be worth finding. Please try one of my customs and see if they work for you, just out of curiosity. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/dc9f5h8n0l8dkd0/AAB031VltmNa5vUnkVfbKJ3Fa?dl=0 (Farin Urlaub and Jethro Tull are in E Standard, Devin Townsend is Open C) Can someone point me to a CDLC that is causing a crash? Using the arrow key down and then 'enter', I can select score attack as well (did you edit your post in the meantime?^^)
  12. @@firekorn I am still convinced that the metronome mode is the most feasible way to learn how to play music (in contrast to regular RS usage, where you only learn to play the notes of a song and remain ignorant about how your guitar actually sounds) inside of Rocksmith. So I think the metronome implementation in the toolkit was a major achievement and I see it somewhat under attack here. I could of course agree to not apply the metronome to e.g. bass and stick to 5 arrangements, but that is not an ideal solution. I think some further investigation is justified before condemning 5+ arrangement CDLCs in general. Since they work for me, I think there must be other/additional reasons for the crashes, not the fact of 5+ arrangements alone.
  13. All my CDLC have a total of 6 playable arrangements: Lead, Rhythm and Bass plus the same with enabled metronome. They play just fine ingame. But visually ingame only 5 are supported, because the "other arrangement" list can only show 4 entries. The last one is not displayed, but you can still select it with the arrow keys.
  14. Hi and thanks for the hard work. 1. Maybe I found a bug in version (rev 93cf5e58): When I use "Load Package" in the CDLC Creator the first time after the program is started, everything is fine. But if I then load another package to generate the psarc of another song, the field "Album Sort" is not updated. Instead it shows the previous text. So I have to update it manually before I can generate the psarc. Can anyone confirm this issue? 2. Is there any reason not to reupload my remastered CDLC with the current toolkit version? All my customs work fine but I am wondering if there are any bugs I might not see or things you would like to polish before people start publishing their CDLCs again... ---- Also I have been wondering for a long time (but this is in no way a priority thing): Would it be possible to create an option in the "configuration" to always chain the CDLC Creator and DDC? So that I would only have to hit "Generate" on the Creator tab and DD is generated automatically with my default settings, giving me the final CDLC with one click? Now with RS Remastered there is no reason not to apply DDC anymore, thus we might as well make it default behaviour?
  15. ... to add to my own statement about the difficulty this week: I also feel like "Feel Good" Lead is much easier than "OK": Advanced Lead - 97.59 % This is my score after 9 tries and starting practicing after my last post 1h ago (I think I could go further, but the slides are killing my streaks...). So I would suggest: "Feel Good" Lead - 5"OK" Lead - 7... with this I will stop rambling about the difficulty and go to sleep instead :D
  16. Hi everyone, such an honor to have one of my customs picked :) If there is anything I can improve about it, please tell me! Here are my scores for Farin Urlaub - OK: Lead - 94.65 % Rhythm - 96.50 % Bass - 99.73 % I must say that I cannot agree with the difficulty 5 on Lead... the solo is too hard for an intermediate song, in my oppinion.
  17. Hi there, I always linked to folders to also make PC, MAC, XBox 360, PS3 versions available, and lots of people also host DD and non-DD versions of their customs... If we are supposed to directly link to a file, how should be provide the links for the other versions? Of course the easiest thing is to directly link to the PC version, and include links to all other platforms / DD versions in the description text. But in my oppinion the most logical thing would be to replace the four platform checkboxes from the edit dialog with input fields for download links. This could at least solve the platform issue
  18. Hi everyone, maybe I searched the wrong way, but I couldn't find any threads on this topic, so here we go. Recently the desire came up to try and record my guitar playing and experiment with melodies that come out of my hands. I've owned Rocksmith now for more than 1.5 years, and never considered the possibility that the Rocksmith Cable would be good for more than Rocksmith itself - silly me! It works great with other guitar / recording software! So I started experimenting with different software and want to tell you about it - maybe you, too, have no clue about the potential of the hardware you already own. At the same time I would like to know if others already have experience in this field and would like to share some tips. Guitar Software The most important detail in the beginning: Its worth installing the free audio driver asio4all to reduce the latency of the guitar audio signal - worked great for me! Rocksmith modifies the audio signal from your guitar to apply various effects, and it is by far not the only software to do that. There are lots of other options and all claim to be very authentic and highly sophisticated. They come with not-so-low price tags, but feature a wide range of simulated hardware. AmpliTube 140 € It has a demo version with reduced features but without time limitations. It simulates pedals, amps, racks, cabinets and you can even adjust the microphone and its position in front of the amp. Feels like a less clunky version of Rocksmith's Tone Designer. You can also record your guitar with it. The free version has two recording tracks, the full version eigth. The full version also has a four-layer looper, which I am very tempted to try out. What I do not like is the fact that you cannot resize the window of the application. Especially in the recorder this is a shame, since I could see a lot more of the audio tracks in a full screen mode. But well.. its all about the tone, I guess. If you have something you can kick with your feet that sends out Midi signals (see my description) you can control many of AmpliTubes functions (start recording / looping / switching presets / enabling pedals) while playing your guitar - I love it! Finally, it also works as a VST plugin for most digital audio workstations (DAWs) - see below. Bias FX 70 € Demo version is only for a limited time. Seems to basically have the same functionality as AmpliTube, minus the recorder and looper. Has a standalone application, but is primarily designed to be used as a DAW plugin. May be a bit cheaper than AmpliTube... but in both cases there is some much extra stuff you can purchase, that this is really hard to tell. Is featured heavily on quite a few YouTube channels I watch. I don't have the experience to tell weather it sounds better or worse than AmpliTube. DAW / recording software Digital audio workstations are programs that allow you all the fancy recording and mixing of you instruments and their tracks. You can apply FX plugins to your tracks to get the guitar sound that you are after. FL Studio 12 90 € Demo version cannot open saved projects. Seems higly professional oriented, with fancy all-vectorized and scaleable interfaces (have a look here, AmpliTube). Had a quick look at it and couldn't get the AmpliTube plugin working - but that's just me, I guess. Reaper $ 60 Not as fancy looking as FL Studio, but noticeably cheaper and packed with functionality. 60 day trial period. Plugins worked immediately, and recording my guitar, too! I really enjoy the "take" feature. If you record say your lead guitar on one track, but missed one note in your awesome solo, you can go there and record a few seconds again, on the same track. It adds a new take for the second recording, and you can choose the take with your best performance. Conclusions Currently I am using Reaper + AmpliTube to have fun experimenting with my first recording and didn't need to pay a dime up to this point - highly recommended! Now I want to know: What guitar sound software do you use? Do you like being completely digital, or do you record your amp with a real microphone? What software do you use to record your music? Do you have tips for useful freeware? Do you recommend paying about 200€ for Reaper + AmpliTube? Or should I invest in real hardware? Please note: I don't own an amp yet... all the time I have only been playing through Rocksmith... I figured I don't need an expensive amp when I play through cheapish headphones anyway. Thank for your time, and keep on rockin'! :)
  19. My score for Advanced Lead: 91.14% :) http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=611947315
  20. Hi everyone, in Rocksmith's Session Mode, I am wondering which variation of the 12 bar blues is used. I am assuming that it is #"A" from this wikipedia picture: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve-bar_blues#/media/File:Standard_12-bar_blues_progression_variations.png Can anyone confirm this? :-) Regards, Azrael
  21. Hi everyone, This week I'm back in Advanced and this is my score: 97.26 % http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=601619928 Quite a wierd song, but somehow I like it. I get the most misses in the parts where you play chords very fast.
  22. You even thought about ignoring metronome tracks, awesome! :D Now I've got one question left: Can I find a complete list of all available options for the filename template somewhere? Could you please post it here and / or add it to the readme? Once more: Thank you for this awesome piece of software!
  23. Hi everyone, I'm coming back from quiet a long brake (seems like 97 had been my last week). While I was finishing my studies I couldn't keep up anymore :-) But now I'm done, and I'm looking forward to participating regulary, again! Having one go at Iron Maiden made me question whether I really was "advanced" before my brake, so instead I went with Intermediate... but it looks like next week will be Advanced, anyway^^ Intermediate Lead: 99.11% http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=596132451 Cheers, and have a nice weekend!
  24. Hi everyone, here are my scores for the week: Advanced: Lead: 97.75 % The solo is simply impossible for me, but I like the song :-) http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=512275833 Rhyhtm: 90 % http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=512275675 Bass: 98.3 % Such a funky song, but such a boring bass... Though I have to admit that I probably didn't get most of it right^^ http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=512275537
  25. My Advanced scores for this week! Lead: 83 % The singer is right, the song really "kicks some ass" - mine for example :( http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=508079239 Rhythm: 94.62 % http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=508079346 Bass: 99.59 % http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=508079148
