Today, Rocksmith for iOS can be downloaded as an iPad app on the App Store in Canada as part of what Ubisoft calls a soft launch. The app is free to download and features several tools that console and PC players already know and love, including interactive video lessons, dynamic difficulty that automatically tailors the difficulty to your skill level, and the celebrated Riff Repeater. Riff Repeater lets you dive into any song, adjust its speed, repeat specific phrases and sections, and tailor your practice sessions to your exact personal goals. It’s a powerful tool made even easier with the advent of touch controls. There are no time limits or subscription fees with the app, so you can practice, practice, practice!

Connecting is easy, for a guitar, you can use the Rocksmith Real Tone Cable from the console and PC versions of Rocksmith, and connect it via the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. Any Real Tone Cable from any edition of Rocksmith will work this way. Electric bass is done the same way. All songs include basslines, arranged for standard four-string bass guitars. Connect your bass via a standard ¼” output jack and you’re good to go.

The free app comes with four songs — three of which are completely new to the Rocksmith library :

“Amazing Grace,” “When the Saints Go Marching In,” “Frère Jacques,” and “Ode to Joy.”

You’ll find more than 20 additional hit songs available for purchase at launch. Of course, that’s just the beginning; just like the PC and console siblings, the iOS edition of Rocksmith will release new songs on a weekly basis for in-app purchase. Rocksmith for iOS will eventually be available worldwide on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, but for now, Canadian players with iPads get the first taste of what’s in store.
