Since it's release in 1997, eMedia's Guitar Pro software has become known as one of the most powerful and intuitive tablature editors on the market. With the 40 features added to eMedia's Guitar Pro 6, it should help keep the brand amongst the leaders in its class as a top software choice of guitarists worldwide looking for a guitar software to assist them in becoming better guitarists and for teaching guitar.
The biggest improvement made to Guitar Pro software's already successful formula is an improved, easy-to-use interface. All the functions and options can be accessed easily like before, but now there is improved scrolling, multiple display options, a powerful zoom, and a full-screen mode to make writing notes as well as well as reading the scores easier.

(Realistic Sound Engine), which gives you realtime playback of your scores using realistic sounds sampled from high-quality guitars and realtime effects such as overdrive, distortion, wah-wah, chorus, delay, and more. For computer accompaniment, you can set audio parameters for the instrument, volume, chorus, reverb, and mute one (or several) tracks. eMedia Guitar Pro software offers audio support for all instruments, from stringed instruments to drums, piano, etc.

I have been using the Hal Leonard and National Guitar Workshop series to learn the Guitar. Within the first hour of using Guitar Pro 6 I was able to create my own set of scale and chord practices using the k signatures of my favorite tunes. In those practice sets I made sure to add the eight feel, chord Arpeggios and syncopation that made up the tunes composition. Then I started to add the rhythm section of Bass and Drums. I knew nothing of the rhythm section and found this very enlightening. Digging lead to me composing my own solos and by doing so is improving my improvisations.
The software is capable of mimicking many different instruments, down to and including choices of pickup arrangements on electric guitars. Other instruments vary in quality, from spot-on to barely recognizable, and often require tweaking of EQ to get them closer to a real sound. The RSE (Real Sound Engine) has a large list, and additional instruments can be purchased from Arobas/eMedia. For some unexplained reason, the earlier instruments from GP5 cannot be accessed while RSE is active, which prevents reproduction of some sound effects (like pick scratches). When RSE is turned off, you only have the GP5 instruments available, which is limited compared to what one can use with RSE. Why weren't the GP5 instruments ported over to the RSE? Some features are incomprehensible (like the accentuation slide -- what does it do?), with the manual very unhelpful. I have asked several questions on their Get Satisfaction! forum, but rarely got any useful assistance (I think the language barrier didn't help). I've figured out many of the more obscure features by experimenting on my own. Haven't used the MIDI portion, since I don't have the hardware to plug my instruments into my computer, so I can't say anything about that. The program crashes every now and then, probably due to buffer overload. I've also had to reload the software from time to time, because an effect or instrument file will get corrupted and need to be reinstalled. Even had to reinstall the entire program and all the extras at least once. All in all, it's capable of accomplishing a lot, and even with the extras, it's fairly inexpensive. Writing music and lyrics is very user-friendly, although sometimes the software gets a bit confused. For musicians on a tight budget, it's got almost everything needed to put out good-sounding music. Shame the "singers" are only synthesizer tones, but that's a whole different can of worms and not really that much of a drawback. This software has been around for a while now, so why haven't the obvious flaws I've mentioned been fixed by now?
I got this to make my own music. I have had this for about seven months now and I love it! I lets you put in whatever instruments you want then plays the score. You can edit with effects and it even sounds like the real instruments. If you're a solo artist, just getting into music, wanna learn a difficult piece of music this if for you!
the day i got it i was thinking it wasnt gonna be to much different than just reading tabs from a book but i was wrong becouse it plays along with the tabs and makes it easier for you to learn songs and it made it so much easier for me to learn some of my favorite songs becouse it plays along i havent had it to long and i havent figured out how to write my own tabs with it yet but i will soon. and it has all the chords you can think of and all the scales you can think of. the only thing i dont like about it is its got a computery sound to it but it doesnt make it hard to here the rythems or nothin in it i honestly think its a good profuct to have if you want to learn songs from your favorite artists
I recently got this product and I found myself mixing a guitar tab.. This is such a great product for making your own songs or for learning a song that you didn't write.. Overall, a must have for any person that plays ANY musical instrument.
Having a Music App that works in Linux is rare and very nice. There are a few bugs and crashes with importing but overall this is a must have for anyone doing music on linux boxes. Its alot of fun using this app and the Rsc sound engines is great. Works very well in ubuntu studio. get this software you will love it.
This program is great for anyone that wants to play guitar or bass or really anything. I am a guitar player that wants to expand my songs and found this program. It is the best out there for just uploading a tab and being able to play along with any song. Along with uploading already made tabs, you can make your own in minutes and jam to your own songs. I would highly recommened this for anyone wanting to learn to play songs. From the beginner to a pro, just wanting to learn a new song, this is a must have. Great and worth it for the money!
Rock-a-licious! This program is wonderful. I used to have the older version of Guitar Pro, but V.6 is awesome. It has all of the greatness of older versions, plus more in depth tonal capabilities and more gadgets to mess with. It also sounds a lot better than the older versions. The sounds are much more real as opposed to very robotic sounding. This is a must have for anyone who plays any genre of music. Whatever you want to play, you can play.
