    Bass guitar issue


    i have a problem when i try to connect my bass guitar to play rocksmith, i have the realtone cable and windows install the driver fine in any usb.

    But i think that the signal have a problem, bass guitar only make sound on windows if i set the input volume for the realtone cable below 40% when i put over 40% on windows settings there is no sound. And the sound below 40% imput volume is full of distortion and noise on windows. Obviusly rocksmith can't calibrate this mess.

    I chek my bass guitar on the amp and it works fine.

    I think that the bass guitar sends a very high signal or a very low one, or the cable is broken but i bought it 4 days ago.

    I've been searching 3 days for a solution on internet, and i uninstall, reinstall and update realtek drivers, realtone driver, i tryed all the usb ports, unplug all the usb cables, change the bass batteries (is an active bass) and nothing works.

    Any idea?

    when i upgraded from ps4 to ps4 pro i had same problem with both my guitar and bass. I managed to fix guitar but couldnt fix the bass to a point i liked the sound. When i had ps4 it had good sound and i was happy, With ps4 pro sound felt like it had a lot of distortion and gain. After reading forums i found out that i need to strum really hard and loud while calibrating and when it says mute strings i dont mute manually but i let them go back to silent alone slowly without touching. It certainly has to do with the way rocksmith calibrates so you need to experiment. I m still not happy with bass sound especially when i know that it used to sound fine when i had normal ps4 but i still play from time to time. The above trick worked well for guitar though.

    I'm confused by the mention of Realtone drivers and input volume settings. This doesn't match anything that I see on my PC setup.

    Could you elaborate on your system and what you are having to do, setup-wise, to get this working for your guitar?
