Im a manager at a guitar center. That software cost about half of what you paid.

just sayin.

As a manager, you should know that what Guitar Center pays should be sold for a hell of a lot more to pay off rent/bills, employee fees etc, and on top of that, make profit.

Just because you pay way more than what the retail stores pay does not mean you did not get a good deal.

However, if you can purchase that product online for a much cheaper price, that changes things.

Of course, but still, anyone can get a promo code / discount. All you have to do is ask. I came in at a good time so I got lucky. I also got Logic for free, legally, through another company, so im set. Im going to be learning a lot over the next few months. How long have you worked at guitar center?

Odin wishes you'd just post your stuff in the Audio Advertisement thread. Everybody wants exposure and tips, but the forum has to stay clean. I'll check out your loop later today if it makes you feel better.

Nah, the smell is me. I ate 2 kebabs and the garlic sauce is converting regular farts to diabolical evil farts.

Or was that thing there before and I've never seen it?

That's definitely a new feature, just finished checking it out too. It's pretty cool. :3

Unfortunately, no. Only solution is to memorize the number, then check it after 6 hours or so and see if the number increased.

Honestly, I don't find it that difficult to see which reviews are new from that page... but then, I generally respond to every review I get, so it'll be easy as hell to keep track for me on that page.

Nor am I really swimming in reviews.

Bleh, everytime I try to compose something I lose my train of thought trying to translate it into the program.

Just in general pressing on instruments to get the right one, then I find it and im like "wait, what was happening again?" I brain fart too much! Oh my GOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!

I probably need to write down some sheet music, but thats hard to do because I can barely read it, OH MY GOOOOOOOO- im just gonna stop right there.

Any tips? Or something....

I had to look up what Rocksmith was. Thought it was some sort of amplifier or a distortion unit maybe, but little did I know...

I thought the whole guitar/keytar/drumtar/asstar hype ended a long time ago. :F

Well, you weren't playing a real guitar back in Guitar Hero and Rock Band days. I never even bothered playing them. I'll see if Rocksmith improves. Latency is a bitch. I've tweaked it up to be better, but I'll try tweaking it more.

What sucks even more is you need to restart it EVERY time you change the buffer setting in the game (which isn't standard sample rate like in a sound card's driver, but just a bar of 1-10 or something).

Go outside wearing nothing and shout out that you survived hurricane sandy while holding diapers and a sign that says you are homosexual.

Very recently, I was seriously considering getting Rocksmith... honestly more for the chord/scale minigames than for the actual songs... I can learn songs from tabs, but I get horrendously bored learning new chords and running scales with no fun gimmick to it.

But I'm increasingly skeptical... especially considering the issues I've heard about latency. I'm already somewhat decent on guitar... if I were to play Rocksmith and there was latency, it would drive me insane and I'd probably end up breaking the disc in half or something in frustration.

Now I don't think I'm gonna get it at all... I have a feeling the minigames novelty would wear off pretty fast and would become just as boring as running scales or learning new chords without it.
