Rocksmith™ Real Tone Cable

The Rocksmith™ Real Tone Cable is not included with the purchase of Rocksmith™ on Steam and must be purchased separately. Please see your local retailer or many online stores to purchase the Rocksmith™ Real Tone Cable.

Rocksmith™ requires a unique 1/4"-t- USB cable, that is the first of its kind, which allows users to plug any real guitar with a quarter-inch jack directly into their console or PC.

Developed exclusively for Rocksmith™, this revolutionary cable turns the guitar's signal from analog to digital, allowing it to be recognized and played through video game consoles or PC for the first time.

The use of a second Rocksmith™ Real Tone Cable allows for simultaneous split-screen cooperative play while playing Rocksmith™.

About the Game

Rocksmith™ is the first and only game that you can plug into any real guitar or bass with a 1/4" output jack.

Nothing plastic, nothing fake, just the most authentic and complete guitar experience in music gaming. By plugging into your PC, you’ll develop real skills and real styles while playing absolutely real music. Featuring gameplay that automatically adjusts to your personal ability, Rocksmith’s innovative game design makes playing music visually intuitive and will engage experienced musicians as well as those who have never picked up a guitar in their lives.

This game is amazing for both beginning and advanced guitar players. When I first bought this, I already knew all of my chords, including bar chords and power chords, and could play various songs on my own, yet about two days in, I could already feel a challenge, and even failed a few venues. Now, at 60+ hours, along side my own playing, I can definetly say it has honed my skills, and even brought many weeks of enjoyment and new music to me. I reccomend this to all guitar players out there looking for something new and exciting. Get out there guys!

This game has helped me with speed in playing guitar. Yeah the tuning on the game may be out a little, but it still is a great game. So many old songs you can play plus new ones you can buy, still one of my favorite games.

edit: if you are drunk and can rev up judas priest on rocksmith you'll love this FOREVER
seriously

first of this isn't really a game game.
but it did something nice for me: took away my fear of tabs that by looking at them made me go "i'll never get that".
mostly you'll suck if you are a beginner and choose your favorite song. but learn continiously.

buy rocksmith just for the cable. got it for 40€ considering the cable costs about 30€ it was the best option.
(and now i'll wait till rs2014 is on sale hehe)

edit: i got the 2014 in sale and it's as amazing as i thought!

seriously if you plan to start playing the guitar and love rock get these games ( rs and rs14)

-youre learning guitar, you are not going to instantly be able to play an insturment, its gonna be hard and long, but it will be worth it [feel free to take this time to laugh]
-If someone walks in on you playing, they may laugh at you quite loudly [♥♥♥♥ em]
