Setting a Random Tuning Bug?

I'm trying to compile a CDLC which has an eight string arrangement with a strange tuning. 

 

The tuning from lowest to highest:

C#AEADG.

In EOF, this would be -15 -12 -10 -10 -9 -9. I know that the tool kit can't go above or below 10. My solution was to make the tuning -3 0 2 2 3 3 instead. 

When I import this arrangement with this tuning and lower the frequency to 330hz. I check the tuning after I compiled the CDLC, and instead of -3, it is 9. This is the incorrect tuning. Everything else is fine, it's just the C# note the toolkit doesn't like. 

I made a quick video to show what was happening:

Edit: I give up. It seems things that should be simple are not because automatic is a thing. 

I decided to put the C tuning into a bass track instead. Then there's just a standard eight string tuning for rhythm. I'm hoping this will work.

You should use 220Hz as the A frequency to go an octave lower (12 half step).

Thanks. I don't know how frequency works. I know that it adjusts the tone. 

But I'm still having the same issue. The tuning keeps randomly going to 9 0 2 2 3 3

@SuperSonic  Plz PM or post the link to your original EOF project files (before xml arrangements have been run through the toolkit).  Maybe the toolkit is trying to auto fix a low bass tuning issue.  I will have to take a look. 

 

What happens if you don't change the frequency?   In the video, it doesn't appear that you are creating a new custom tuning name (you are reusing one that you already created in past).  Try creating a new tuning name with -3 0 2 2 3 3 as the old name has been stored with the incorrect tuning so toolkit keeps changing tuning to what was stored previously.

@SuperSonic  Plz upgrade to latest beta/test version of toolkit first.

In the original EOF project files you PM, the tuning is shown as:

<tuning string5="-9" string4="-9" string3="-10" string2="-10" string1="0" string0="-3"/>

The toolkit changes this to:

<tuning string5="-3" string4="0" string3="-10" string2="-10" string1="-9" string0="-9"/> aka DbAEADG

Now while in the toolkit 'Creator, Edit or Confirm Tuning' popup, create your new tuning name 'C#AEADG' and enter the tuning as '-3 0 2 2 3 3'.  Be sure to check the box 'Add as new Tuning' then click OK.  Then as @@firekorn suggested change the frequency to 220 Hz.  Finally generate your CDLC.   This worked for me.

Strange. Making the new tuning fixed it. I just put in 'Custom Tuning' and it worked. Even after changing the frequency. I don't know if my Toolkit was outdated, because my SSD recently died with all my Rocksmith 2014 files on it. I downloaded the latest version of the toolkit today. I did make a new tuning before, but it kept changing to some random tuning. Now I got the outcome I wanted. Thanks for fixing the issue.
