Guitar tone switches to clean and won't go back, what do I do?

Recommended Posts

I don't recall this ever happening in the past, but the past day I've been experiencing tone problems. The tone is the usual distorted one when the game starts, but once I start up a song... it goes clean. I have tones saved on my keyboard, and even when changing those it's still clean. The only way to fix it is to restart the game, and when I do the tone might stay for a song or two; that's it though.


Is there a fix for this? Would CDLC be an issue?

My guess is its a specific CDLC causing the tone crash. This has been my experience in the past with some CDLC, if I restart and try the same song it crashes again, once I have the song narrowed down there is a fix.


There are a few threads about tone crashing here is the fix I use :


"Open the rocksmith toolkit> import package> saved the folder to my desktop> Generate> save the new .psarc file to my DLC folder (manually removed old .psac first) Done."

Go to your dlc folder.  Right click somewhere inside it (not on a file) and sort by date.  Go through and delete the ones either individually you've recently downloaded, or what I do when this happens.   Is I just delete the one I think it is.  Typically you'll have played a few of your recent downloaded songs, so you'll know it isn't those files.  Just delete the others, and then

This Bug is killing me does anyone have any idea how to fix this. I have deleted everything Re-Installed Rocksmith not running any CDLC still does it. PC is over spec for game checked all updates still does it killing me.

does uninstalling it keep save data?, just a guess but trying a new save profile might work but I haven't tested so might not do anything. Could be an issue with audio devices/drivers or audio buffer size which I think can be changed in Rocksmith.ini.
