Tuning Problems Please Help!!!
This is my first time trying to play the electric guitar as well as Rocksmith 2014. Rocksmith works fine till I have to tune for the first time then falls apart. Made sure that the volume and tone on guitar are at max. I have even turned up the Rocksmith usb guitar adapter and nothing changes the tuning just goes from the lowest tuning point to the highest tuning point. Rocksmith 2014 looks like fun and would love to start playing.

did you set the properties of the USB adaptor to 1 channel, 16 bit, 48000 Hz and made sure it's your default recording device?

Mine did that too, but it's better now. I think that's one of those things they're working on. You kind of have to let it ring out a lot. My numbers are still wrong even when it saying the string is tuned. The plus side is that you don't have to tune as much as RS1

Tremolo the string can also help, also hit it not so hard.

One technical thing I encountered is that it will not tune when you have lot of "noise" (not talking about noise from pickups) due to high settings for the sound engine. I used 2 for RS13 and now I use 6. As soon as the guitar sound is clear and not "choppy" you will tune ok.

Oh, and contrary to RS13 a high level on the record panel in USB props will not help! Keep that 20-30ish....

I found the opposite worked for me. I could hear the guitar with the default USB volume but Rocksmith wouldn't pick it up when tuning, even after calibration. Turning the USB volume up to about 86 worked like a charm. I don't turn it up all the way or it will clip and sound awful, but unless I turn it up from the default, the game simply doesn't work. Even at 30.

Maybe your guitar has active pickups and mine doesn't?

In my experience most guitar tuners tend to respond better to natural harmonics.

With guitar the 12th fret is the same note as an open note (no fret held) on the same string (as long as the neck is set up properly - though don't get hung up on setup yet).

My point being that if you hold your finger directly over the 12th fret (the actual 12th metal strip) and pluck the string, you get the same note (though an octave up) as the open note you'd get by simply plucking the open string.

When using a digital tuner pedal/Rocksmith the 12th fret harmonic gives a cleaner note that causes less confusion to the tuner and allows you to tune faster and more accurately.

Also if your guitar is brand new with a fresh set of strings, it's likely that they will still be stretching and settling in. I tend to get bored and stretch them with a couple fingers and retune, then repeat the process for 10-20 minutes. Afterwards it will lose it's tuning a bit slower. I know some people that would fit, tune and leave it and come back once a day to retune for a week or so and they 'd end up with much better results than me but i'd often be fitting strings in my mates van on the way to band practise.

Hope this helps.

I'm having this issue too, it just wont let me tune. When I play the (in tune) low E, it says I'm playing A and need to raise it by 499! :(
