A working replacement for when I tried something I shouldn't have...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ubisoft Rocksmith Real Tone Cable (Video Game)
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.

Great review. This gave me the information I was looking for (whether or not the cable will work with Rocksmith for the PC) and gave me extra info on sound lag and a great tip about how the cable should be handled. Thanks for the information!

would you please tell me, what kind of OS you are using ?
I just want to know if it works with win 7 or not.

Haha, yes, I've tried plugging the headphone out from my amp to my computer. Didn't work. Had to buy a new sound card.
