This is my first time entering the championship, looks fun. I just saw Octavarium was one of this week's songs so here's my score This was my second run, I could probably do a tiny bit better but 20

Super catchy. ♫~ I forgot to submit my FC of this to the CS, but how about an elaborate week-and-a-half-late performance anyway? 😉  

Not gonna lie. I thought I was going to hate this song.. but it was super fun to play. Interesting chord progressions.. Might work on it a little bit more this week if time allows..

I think Future People is much more technical and more difficult than God Knows... I rate Future People at 8 and I would transfer it to the masterclass, and God Knows is more 7 and advanced.  This is my suggestion 🙂

I see where you're coming from. It's close, and I even struggled deciding which would be MC. But ultimately I rate difficulties on reproducing the song, not necessarily how hard it is to make good number in Rocksmith accuracy, and in my opinion making God Knows' rhythm guitar sound like the song is remarkably harder than making Future People's, even though it's certainly easier to score higher on.. Though both charts are good, they are also not perfect - neither rhythm includes the dynamics, which are a big factor in nailing both songs but harder to pull off in God Knows. I'm gonna leave class selections as they are.

No comments on Lag?  Damn was hoping.

I have had the same sort of question, never really felt like I understood the settings.  My best performance upgrade was getting an audio interface and using the ASIO drivers.  Latency dropped, tone sounded better, it is awesome.  Not sure if it is the key to fixing the visual lag however.

Your lag calibration should be on 0 unless your audio is out of sync otherwise you're just adding more lag to your game and throwing it off more. If you're on PC it should nearly always be on 0 unless you have a jank setup.

Have a look through Rocksmith.ini and RocksmithConfiguration.pdf. But in general, turn on exclusive mode and Win32UltraLowLatencyMode. Put your LatencyBuffer as low as it can without audio issues (2 worked for me) and make sure ForceWDM and ForceDirectXSink are off.

Makes a world of difference in score attack, you can actually play on time and still get prefects.

I'm using the realtone cable btw just in case it make any difference.

I don't think you are wrong...reset mine to 0 and it seemed better in SA.  More "perfect" notes, but that is one time anecdotal.  Will keep it for a while and see.

I'll look but pretty sure lag is at 18, playing on a pc, and a sound out cable to amp. I also use a realtone cable and a Y splitter, one to guitar one to amp.  Like to hear it loud (especially songs I like) LOL!!! Gotta keep up with unknown neighbor who plays lead loudly with his amp some times.... Would like to know which neighbor it is. I'll check the other settings.  Thanks!!!

You may be right. When I play this song, it doesn't sound bad. Unfortunately, Rocksmith doesn't count many notes, maybe I don't hit the tempo perfectly.

 

Hard work to improve this, but better step by step:

My tuning on the A string was a bit off so I dropped a note or two near the end. Always down for more Alabama Shakes in the challenge though, and the official DLC pack is quite fun as well:

The intermediate and advanced songs were both fun and never really frustrating for me, though the solo part on God Knows... was tricky.

@Rodman well, I have to say Wonderwall didn't really grow on me, but I did try some cool stuff with it.  My lead singer was booked, and I didn't have much luck with singing along.  The vocal phrasing that isn't on the downbeat throws me off.  So I used the app called I Am the Band that separates the different parts, vocals, drums, guitar, etc.  I recorded along with the drums and vocal, found a cool tone and I was pretty happy.  

Then Youtube blocked it.  I guess I did use the vocals, so maybe it was deserved.  So I put a distortion filter, put it through an amp and pedal effect like the vocals were guitar and got a pretty punk/grunge sounding song.  Now youtube is just complaining about me using the melody.  So I feel all punk sticking it to the man!

Ha! Cool. Feels like a version that could quite nicely be played in your avg. alternative radio station! Bravo. Very tight mix. Punk for sure, but your playing mixes in as there has never been any other. Is there a rotary effect on that guitar of yours? The vocals - yeah! Really sounds as the Gallagher is shouting his ass off through a megaphone. Cool production indeed.

And for the being blocked situation  -  that time it was good for the project. But please create a dailymotion (or vimeo) account, will take 1 minute and you are not blocked there!

 

Whats next.... i´m so motivated, cannot wait!

Rock!.... no wrong - here i gotta say You Rock, Sir!
