Rocksmith 2014 No CD Crack: How to Play Without a Real Tone Cable

Rocksmith 2014 is a popular music video game that teaches you how to play guitar and bass. It requires a special cable called the Real Tone Cable, which connects your instrument to your PC or console. However, some players may not have access to this cable, or may prefer to use their own audio interface or microphone. In this article, we will show you how to play Rocksmith 2014 without a Real Tone Cable, using a software solution called the No Cable Launcher.


What is the No Cable Launcher?

The No Cable Launcher is a software mod that allows you to use any audio input device as a Rocksmith 2014 cable. It was created by Maxx53, a Reddit user and Rocksmith fan, who wanted to improve the game's compatibility with different audio devices. The No Cable Launcher works by bypassing the game's check for the Real Tone Cable, and letting you select your own audio input device from a list. You can also adjust the volume and latency settings to optimize your experience.

How to Use the No Cable Launcher?

To use the No Cable Launcher, you will need to download it from [GitHub], where you can also find the source code and instructions. The latest version of the No Cable Launcher is v2, which was released in November 2019. Here are the steps to install and use the No Cable Launcher:

  • Download the file from [GitHub] and extract it to your Rocksmith 2014 folder.

  • Open the Rocksmith2014_nocable_pbs.ini file with a text editor and change the AudioInputDevice parameter to match your audio input device name. You can find your device name by going to Control Panel > Sound > Recording Devices. You can also change other parameters such as VolumeBoost and LatencyBuffer if needed.

  • Run the Rocksmith2014_nocable_pbs.exe file as administrator and click OK when prompted.

  • Launch Rocksmith 2014 from Steam or from the desktop shortcut. The game should detect your audio input device as a Real Tone Cable and let you play normally.

What are the Benefits and Drawbacks of Using the No Cable Launcher?

Using the No Cable Launcher has some advantages and disadvantages compared to using the Real Tone Cable. Here are some of them:

  • Benefits:

  • You can use any audio input device, such as an audio interface, a microphone, or a guitar cable with a USB adapter.

  • You can save money by not buying the Real Tone Cable, which costs around $30.

  • You can use multiple audio input devices at the same time, such as two guitars or a guitar and a bass.

  • You can chat on Discord or other voice applications while playing Rocksmith 2014.

  • Drawbacks:

  • You may experience some latency or noise issues depending on your audio device quality and settings.

  • You may need to tweak some parameters in the ini file to get the best results.

  • You may encounter some compatibility issues with some DLCs or custom songs.

  • You may violate the game's terms of service by using a modded version of the game.


The No Cable Launcher is a handy software mod that lets you play Rocksmith 2014 without a Real Tone Cable. It works by tricking the game into thinking that your audio input device is a Real Tone Cable, and letting you choose your own device from a list. You can download it from [GitHub] and follow the instructions to install and use it. However, you should also be aware of the potential drawbacks of using this mod, such as latency, noise, compatibility, and legal issues. If you want to play Rocksmith 2014 without any hassle, you may want to consider buying the official Real Tone Cable instead.
