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!
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.
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???
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.

This allows me to play Rocksmith with my husband. He plays at his level (experienced, trained musician) and I play at mine (rank beginner). We both have a great time.Published 27 days ago by Carol Lindsay
Purchased the game and cable in January 2014 -- coming up on 3 years now and the cable is still going strong. Oh, and I have used it for over 3000 hours (according to Steam). Read morePublished 1 month ago by DJE
First one broke so I had to buy another one. The second one seems to be lasting longer. I would be very gentle with how you treat these cables because they do tend to break easily. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Bryan Bjerke
