I've downloaded a driver called ASIO4ALL to use the rocksmith cable in my computer:
And then I used it with a software some of you might know, called Amplitube 3, and now I can play my guitar in my computer. I am really amazed at how well this works. The lag is literally 0, and I can record a riff and then switch the type of distortion I want on it without having to play it again. I can also record several layers of guitar tracks and export it all to a single sound file.
Seriously, this all by itself makes the purchase of Rocksmith worth its while.
The driver is free, and even though Amplitube 3 is paid, there is a free software called Audacity which also works, but with limited functionalities, of course.
Feel free to also post your experiences with using guitar on the computer.
Well that's an oversimplification...I had plugged my guitar into my computer through microfone jack some years ago. That's different from turning your computer into a fully integrated recording and mixing station, I think.
But anyways, I've searched the boards for ASIO4ALL and Amplitube and didn't find anything, so I'm sharing the tip for anyone who feels like trying it out
