Ubisoft Brings Rocksmith As A Subscription Service Back, Today closed Beta Sign-ups Start

During Ubisoft's E3 presentation, the publisher announced it's getting back in the guitar tutorial business with Rocksmith+. This new version of the decade-old franchise was given ample spotlight during the live stream, as Ubisoft San Francisco explained how is transforming it from a standalone product into a robust subscription service.Arthur Von Nagel, a Ubisoft producer, discussed some of the enhancements and changes coming to Rocksmith+. He noted how aspiring musicians can learn to play guitar or bass by connecting their instrument of choice to a PC, console, or mobile device. Because Rocksmith+ is able to use your phone as a microphone, acoustic guitar players and those using electric guitars with amplifiers can play without additional equipment. The appropriate app is all that’s needed to be downloaded on a mobile device and synced to whichever platform the user chooses. The music library was described as having “a huge amount of songs at launch,” featuring master recording and will grow each week with “new, authentic arrangements.” Genres mentioned in the presentation include pop, hip-hop, country, R&B, Latin, and metal subgenres. “It’s the most diverse song library ever seen in music learning software,” claims Nagel. There’s even going to be a way for users to create and add their own arrangements using a new tool called Rocksmith Workshop. Nagel also announced a bunch of new ways for people to learn strum or shred from Rocksmith+. Chord charts will be included for those who prefer to stick to rhythm guitar as well as the more accurate note-for-note style of past versions of Rocksmith. New this time around is a tablature view to read the music as one would with traditional sheet music. An enhanced recommendation system and better progress tracking have been added to allow for a more personalized learning experience for beginner and intermediate musicians. In a press release after the show, Ubisoft announced pricing details: $14.99 for a 1-month subscription, $39.99 for a 3-month subscription, and $99.99 for a 12-month subscription. Sign-ups for the Rocksmith+ "closed beta" start today, and the full launch of the service is expected later this year.

    Has been connected to a Handspring Visor for reasons uknown twitter

    In a curiosity that attracts all seven individuals who still have an operating Handspring Visor PDA, Gizmodo highlights that developer Jorge Cohen spent some time working out a remedy bringing Twitter to the PalmOS device via its HotSync cradle. Sure it’s “kinda buggy,” but like watching Tenet on a casino game Boy Advance, some issues can slide considering it’s running on a tool released back 1999. How old may be the Visor? Inside a year of Engadget’s launch, we were already writing and submitting articles concerning the “old” device back 2005.

    The Visor appeared as a spinoff of the Palm family way before social media marketing sites connected the planet and also before WiFi or cellular connections were a typical feature. While modems were available as a hardware option that connected to the device’s expansion slot as a backpack, it had been built for an offline world – I’d download the day’s news stories on mine before I left for class each morning rather than get any longer updates until I returned at night. The year 2000 in, that still worked in an effort to stay well ahead on the day’s news without having to be linked with a radio or TV.

    Now the blessing/curse of real-time information flow has invaded this monochrome device even, proving that nothing can stay pure forever and giving me grounds to determine where I put the handheld’s dock. Unfortunately, this madman won’t stop there – the MessagePad 120 and Apple Newton are next.
