Guitar Pro v5 has been replaced by the improved Guitar Pro 6.
Guitar Pro runs on both Windows and Max OSX.
It's a multitrack tablature (TAB) editor for stringed instruments including guitar, banjo, and bass, and also lets you score other instruments like drums.
Arobas spent 3 years developing v6 of Guitar Pro. They re-wrote the entire application as well as giving it a new user interface which is cleaner and creates more space for the actual score you are working on.
In addition to creating scores, Guitar Pro is a great tool for helping to improve your skills, compose music, or for creating music to accompany your playing.
- Listen to your scores using the RSE (Realistic Sound Engine) with 1.8 GB of professionally recorded sounds.
- Import & Export MIDI, ASCII, MusicXML, PowerTab, TabEdit files
- Trasncribe and transpose in both standard notation & Tablature
- Chord diagrams
New in Guitar Pro v6 - Improvements over Guitar Pro 5
- The new RSE is much improved - articulations such as thumb, index finger, pick have been added
- Everything is accessible from one window for faster work-flow
- New music symols - "slash" notation, or multirest and simile signs
- Open multiple projects similtaneously (v5 only allowed 1 project at a time)
- $30 discount when upgrading from v5
