I can see that GP6 is more fully featured and does lots of new things, but I still wish I hadn't upgraded from GP5 as I don't need any of the new features, and now I've got to get used to the new interface

Yes indeed, this is no problem. It will have the guitar icon/etc but it doesn't matter. This helps for writing those instruments in TAB rather than needing to know sheet music or using the keyboard thing to score them. I tab everything using Electric Clean then change the soundbanks for it as needed, it will be the same thing

It's really worth getting used to. I felt the same way about GP6 in the beginning as well, there's just a lot you can do with the software that you can't in GP5 + all your stuff will sound a ton better, not that it matters a lot, but it's fine for backing tracks to practice along to or writing basic compositions. Distortion guitar is pretty much the only thing that still sounds quite bad/unrealistic (no matter how you tweak it) and hopefully they'll improve it significantly for GP7

GP6 is great. and yeah, the distorted guitars do sound like shit, i can tweak the EQ and compression to make them sound ok, but they sound so... mechanical. sometimes i like it, but a lot of the time i don't. and palm mutes have no heaviness or fullness at all. the cleans and drums are fantastic though, that's pretty much all i write on it anyway. i also like how the changing the dynamics or adding ghost notes actually changes the tone quality of the instruments too, not just the volume. especially useful for getting really realistic drum sounds.

This can be fixed in GP5.2 (and maybe 5.1, I'm not sure), by adjusting the latency values under Options -> Audio Settings. RSE is pretty bad in any version of Guitar Pro, so these days I'm using the default MIDI sounds anyway.

I will add, that it is possible to export the MIDI in real time to another program. I've done this via Fruity Loops but I've had trouble managing multiple VSTIs.

I'd be all over Guitar Pro 6 if I could just type in my bloody drums.

Thats why i disliked it at first but learning drum notation is actually extremely easy. Just start by downloading a tab and looking at its notation.

Just upgraded last night to GP6 after being an avid fan and user of GP5. I'm looking forward to getting my teeth into this new system.

I've had Guitar Pro 6 for a while. It's a great interface! Only took me a 1 week to get used to the new interface. If anyone needs help let me know

I've been using GP6 and I'm disappointed 'cause it has been complicated... I'm using GP5.2 without RSE... To be honest, RSE sounds shitty on every version...

Thinking of giving GP6 another chance. Really hated it compared to GP5 but I think that's just because they feel like different programs to use so I guess I just wasn't used to it. Things like only being able to input drum notation, I think learning how to notate drums is great but the old system was really convenient for me to use.

Any other features that make up for and woo me into getting GP6?

Thumbs up

I love it. Had guitar pro 4 and bought guitar pro 6 from the USA ( could get it here in Oz ). The kids use it more than me to write their own originals. Would recommend it to anyone who has a child interested in music and playing instruments. It has added another dimension my children's musical development and it also helps good old dad who can't read music all that good turn up the amp and play loud.

I got an email from Guitar-Pro for a deal on 100 soundbanks. Are they worth it, or it's just more of the same?

I've heard good things about their custom soundbanks but my view is this. Almost nobody have them, so if you put them in your tabs, others won't be able to enjoy them - and if you wanna build really solid backing tracks for own use, you'll need other software anyway. That's why I don't think they are worth it.

At this point I'd wait for GP7 as it's well under development.

If you think that GP is complicated,you can try another software. I used to use Tux Guitar. It's the same thing,with the most simple interface ever. Btw,it's completely free.

If you have any experience using it, please share


I bought the full version and I am using it.. It's my first time using guitar pro and I'm loving it. Very fast to use also. The interface could be more intuitive in general but it's an amazing tool overall and worth the price tag!
