Guitar Pro is a very powerful program for editing tablatures for guitar, bass and other fretted instruments from 4 to 8 strings. Guitar Pro is easy to use and its files are now circulating between hundreds of thousands of musicians all over the world - because it is a true success story. Guitar Pro now includes support for other instruments like piano and drums produced via an audio engine that delivers realistic results. A suite of interactive tools and score editing are ideal supports for every musician's practice session.
There is an optimal display of your score, together with all the tools you need for editing, sound-setting and playing your instrument. Choose your display options from the screen or page mode, horizontal or vertical scrolling, mono track, multi-track, and full-screen mode and 25-800% zooming. The score appears with 6 retractable panels to its left: Editing, Instrument, Audio, Mastering, Chords, and Lyrics.
All of the tools you need to create and edit scores, right at hand. Quickly and easily capture the notes with the keyboard and its many shortcuts, with the mouse, or yet again with a MIDI instrument.
Symbols and Effects: With Guitar Pro, add all of the common musical symbols to your score, most notable those that are specific to the guitar and other fretted instruments.
Customize Your Score: Based on the classic or jazz styles, you can set 70 different parameters, configure the outlook of your scores exactly as you wish and get professional-level paper printouts.
Tablature and Standard Notation: Both types of notation are perfectly synchronized: the notes capture into one get immediately reported into the other. There are several built in effects processors that enable you to get a very true guitar sound with distortion, EQ and much more.
Guitar Pro is also a powerful score player which easily facilitates composing or learning a piece of music.
The Realistic Sound Engine [RSE]: The RSE technology includes the realistic studio recordings of instruments, as well as some effect modeling that are the result of years of research. You'll get access to over a hundred sound banks and over fifty effects pedals and amps. We provide many presets for all styles and you can also configure your own effect chains. You can apply a mastering to the final result, with a compressor-limiter, a reverb, and a 10-track Equalizer. You can also listen to your scores in MIDI sound.
Optimized playback options: During playback, the score automatically scrolls on and a highlighted cursor lets you know which note is being played. You can adjust tempo, and play all or part of a piece in loops. The Speed Trainer will then let you play any section of the score in loops with progressive accelerations. This is very useful to practice a solo or a complex guitar riff! All of the effects specific to the guitar - e.g., bend, slide, ghost notes, etc. are rendered into the playback, as well as the various possible playing styles - pick stroking, finger picking or slapping, for instance.
Improved Management of Automations: In a new window, you can customize precisely the changes of volume, tempo and panoramic during playback.
Soundboard: For each track, the Guitar Pro Soundboard lets you adjust volume, pan and tone using the semi-parametric equalizer. You can also use it to mute one or several tracks and choose to show or hide them. An ideal tool when you want to use Guitar Pro as backing band.
Global View: The global view allows you to get a synthetic view of the score, and thus to easily move around it. You can define various sections in a score, such as Intro, Verse or Chorus.
Guitar Pro is a true workshop for guitarists: chord and scale libraries, tuner, metronome, virtual fret board and keyboard. All of those tools work with fretted instruments from 4 to 8 strings.
Diagram generator: Request any chord in any tuning and Guitar pro will display all possible finger positions for you. Draw a diagram by clicking on the grid and Guitar Pro will suggest all possible names for that chord.
Scale Engine: The scale engine presents a large directory of scales, from the most common to the most exotic, for you to select and listen to. Whichever scale you select can be shown on the fret board or keyboard to work as support for you to write your score. The search function also allows you to quickly find out what scale is being used in all or part of the score.
MIDI and digital tuners: The digital tuner allows you to tune your guitar by plugging it into the soundcard, or via a microphone. You can also simply tune your guitar by ear, string by string, with the MIDI tuner. Those work for all possible tunings.
Virtual Fret Board and Keyboard: The virtual fret board and keyboard are here to help you see the notes from the score, or capture them into it. They can show you the notes of the current beat, as well as the notes of the next beat, of the whole bar or yet again of the scale you have selected. Those are indispensable tools if you are beginning or is you wish to capture notes with the mouse.
Since the Guitar Pro format has become a true standard on the Internet, the software will let you enjoy thousands of scores that are already available over many websites (files in *.gtp, *.gp3, *.gp4, *.gp5 and *.gpx formats).
MIDI Import/Export A MIDI file contains in a description of musical data, which Guitar Pro turns into an actual multi-track tablature. The software calculates and optimizes the position of each note on the fret board for you to play it as easily as possible. You can also export the tablature as a MIDI file for use in other software.
ASCII Import/Export The ASCII format" or simple text file" was the first format used for the sharing of tablatures. It is so easy to use via a mere text editor that it is still widely used today, in spite of its outdated look. Guitar Pro will let you convert ASCII files into tablatures in one click, to play them or print them out. The reverse option is also possible.
WAV Export With the WAV Export option, you can convert a Guitar Pro file into an audio file, which you can play or burn onto an audio CD.
PNG Export Exporting into PNG (image) will let you save your tablatures as big-sized pictures. Those pictures can for instance be integrated into a webpage for wider diffusion, or edited with the appropriate software for pedagogical purposes.
PDF Export The PDF format is standard when you wish to distribute your scores.
