Rocksmith Cable works outside Rocksmith, but doesn't work in it

Mountainous Moustache


Hi! I've been playing Rocksmith for a few months on bass and it's been awesome. The CDLC on this site has been great for helping me grow as a bassist, so I really appreciate the community here!


The problem I'm having is a few days ago the sound input to Rocksmith stopped working correctly. I still get a sound from my bass, but it's octaves too low and is just a barely decernable rumble. I tried listening to the cable outside of Rocksmith in the recording devices tab and it sounds perfect, just as I would expect.


Troubleshooting I've tried:

-Playing with volume adjustments in the sound bar of windows 10

-Playing with the Rocksmith .ini file

-Reinstalled Rocksmith

-Reinstalled Cable Drivers


Nothing seems to be helping. I don't think the cable is broken because it sounds just like you would expect outside the game, it's only inside the game that it's a solid wall of noise. I also don't think it's my guitar because I tried two and had the same result. The game is unplayable at this point because Rocksmith can't detect any of my notes, which is rather regrettable because I was really starting to enjoy myself.


Has anyone seen this problem before or have suggestions on how to fix it?

Yeah, I noticed that if I switch to bass from one of the guitar paths by clicking on the arrangement in Learn a Song (rather than doing Ctrl or whatever to switch paths as you had to originally) that it automatically switches to emulated bass. Which is annoying, because that's not what I want it to do and it seems like there's no way to change that behavior.
