TL;DR No hacks or patches required
1-minute 1-day way to make it work.
There are a lot of guides about Rocksmith and No Cable Mode both for Windows and Mac but not for Roland Quad-Capture. I don’t know actually why but the basic flow is:
- Start Audio MIDI Setup
- Go to Audio Devices
- Click + on the bottom, choose “Create Aggregate Device”
- Rename your new device to “Rocksmith USB Guitar Adapter”
It didn’t work for me. So, I tried to find another way. I found an app named Loopback - usually, people used it to combine mic with audio sources or combine multiple input devices into a single virtual device.
I used it the other way. I’ve created a virtual device with
Rocksmith USB Guitar Adapter name where added Roland Quad-Capture Left channel as an output for this virtual device. After that my higher-quality audio interface works as the input instead of the RealTone cable.
Also, I’ve changed
Rocksmith.ini file a little bit:
