Product Description

Rocksmith is the first and only video game where players can plug any real guitar with a standard quarter-inch input jack into an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, and play through an in-depth library of music including everything from the latest hits to classic rock. The use of a second Rocksmith Real Tone Cable allows for simultaneous split-screen cooperative play. The 11.25 feet cable will also allow players to plug in and record their instrument directly into their computer at 48KHz. The unique cable design ensures quick release of the guitar from the gaming console to protect the player's gear.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This review is actually for the USB Rocksmith Real Tone cable, not the game.

I recently purchased this game and decided to try the cable directly into Garageband on a Mac, since I had tried the 'Alesis Guitarlink' USB cable and found it unworkable in Garageband because of a low volume but persistent high-pitched pulsing/beeping coming from what I assume is the USB circuitry in the Alesis cable. Maybe my Alesis cable is defective - either way it was unusable.

I am happy to comment that this Rocksmith Real Tone cable works perfectly with Garageband for me and is absolutely free of any unwanted noises. The cable is quite sturdy and seems almost indestructible in normal use. There is even a strain release mechanism in the USB tail where an inline plug will disconnect without yanking any of your computer (or game console if you are using it with the Rocksmith game) onto the floor.

Highly recommended. I ordered a spare before everyone figures this out and the cables end up on backorder!

This cable got me back working in the PC version of Rocksmith. It does a perfectly capable job of relaying your sounds to the game/computer in general. Beware the thing is a piece of sensitive electronic equipment, and is labeled as such.

Why I got it: You know how it says not to plug the cable into anything but your guitar, and not to plug anything else in between the guitar and the cable in the instructions? Well, I disregarded that with my original cable. I was having trouble with audio lag between when I played a note on my guitar and when I heard it through my computer. I tried, unsuccessfully, to fix it by plugging the guitar into my amp and my amp's headphone jack into the PC using my old cable.

Don't. Do. That.

The electronics in this cable are for the tiny amount of current that comes straight out of a guitar. More current than that will simply fry it.

For anyone curious: switching to my onboard sound card from my PCIe X-Fi fixed the audio lag for me. There are additional instructions on the Ubisoft forums on other methods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second cable for two player gaming- November 11, 2011

This is the same as the cable that comes with the game- having two allows two players to play simultaneously. Definitely a blast with two guitarists playing this game!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this cable to go w/ my Rocksmith game. It's just fine except a cable comes w/ the game... My mistake I guess. But If I want to play w/ a friend I suppose it's useful. Just wanted to let you know.

1.0 out of 5 stars On my third cable February 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Not sure why the review is asking me how much fun and how do I rate this game???
First off, I am a 59 year old man that has just taken up guitar. I bought a PS3 strictly for Rocksmith. The game is a fantastic teaching mechanism. I have learned how to play the Black Keys "Next Girl" all the way through in 4 weeks. My wife and I have been playing multi-player, what a blast.

But this write up is about the cable. I initially bought another cable to be able to jam with my wife. 2 days after starting to play, one of the cables broke. I returned the cable without issue and received another one. Thank You AMAZON! Now 3 weeks later another one is broken. I do have two so, I am able to swap cables and/or guitars to be sure it is the cable. The cable is defective. What a bummer when you want to play multi-player...
Wondering how many of these I am going to go through???

5.0 out of 5 stars For Apple Garageband users... March 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I know nothing about games & gaming. I bought this to use for Apple Garageband recording. I plugged in my guitar and my Mac recognized this USB device instantly and I was off and running, simple as that. I'm posting this review for anyone who wants to be sure it will work this way. It sure does! No latency that I'm noticing and it's very quiet. What a bargain...a simple, inexpensive way to plug my electric guitar directly into Garageband. And no doubt it will work just as well with any other recording program. Go for it, I'm sure you'll be as happy with it as I am.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gets the job done....for a while. January 28, 2013
Verified Purchase
Okay, let me just be clear here for a moment: this review is for the Real Tone cable and not Rocksmith itself. Rocksmith, as a game, is the most fun way to improve guitar skill and fretboard agility - if you take the time to configure the audio correctly to minimize lag and such.

But this cable....well, the cable is absolute crap. Expect to go through at least a couple of these things, since they seem to be unshielded and are VERY susceptible to feedback loops that can burn them out irreparably. For $30, you'd expect to get something built to last - especially considering that Ubisoft went out of their way to get so much real guitar tech licensed for the game.

The only reason that this gets three stars is because it is (to my knowledge) the ONLY way to play Rocksmith - other USB to 1/4" cords fail an internal hardware check in the game. Hopefully if they ever make a Rocksmith 2 the powers-that-be will spend a little bit more time building a cable that won't junk out randomly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality cable and a must for dueling. January 2, 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had to get another cable for Rocksmith so my lady, my friends and I can duel and play together.

I know you can get any USB to 1/4" cable, of which there are a few and they can run cheaper I got this one. I did because of the breakaway section that will absoulutely save you from picking up your broken video game console off the floor when you snag the cable or get a little to rambunctious with your playing.

Love it.
