Shiftwindow doesn't work
- Shiftwindow does not work correctly, it will not move a Rocksmith window for windowed-fullscreen
- Using your motherboard's onboard sound rather than an internal sound card is recommended for reduced latency
- Rocksmith's audio latency is highly dependent on values set within the Rocksmith.ini. Modifying this file is almost always necessary for an optimal experience.

- There are also a few settings outside of Rocksmith that need to be adjusted to allow Audio Exclusivity and other settings to work properly.
