I don't think so..
Maybe you'll like it if you're forced to program drums in GP6, but i'd rather avoid this bothersome.. feature.

yeah... I don't really understand what's so hated about Guitar Pro 6. The drum writing process is different, but not difficult... I mean, all it takes is a quick glance to know where each part of the drum kit corresponds to it's note on the staff. I saw that some guy said that is was hard to write in odd time signatures... I don't really see that, as all you have to do is click a button and type in your time signature. the RSE in this version kicks Guitar Pro 5's in the butt, ESPECIALLY in the drum department. With the other instruments you might have to tweak the EQ a little bit and mess with the stomp boxes and amps, but the fact that is has those things is pretty cool in itself. I doubt you'll ever find yourself in a situation where you don't have to tweak anything to get something like the sound you're looking for.

My honest opinion is that I liked the GP5 interface better, visually, but after using GP6 for about 2 weeks I totally forgot what the GP5 interface even looked like, and I don't struggle with finding anything or doing any task any more. Perhaps in the the next Guitar Pro the learning curve won't be as steep (although it only took me about 3 days to learn how to do anything I wanted in GP6), but I personally think it's a big step up from GP5. Making backing tracks with drums, bass and sometimes keyboards is great, and you get them to sound pretty decent for most practice or youtube purposes.

And think about this: You create a progression to improvise over in Band in a Box, and you export it to midi, then import that midi file into Guitar Pro 6. Tweak the tracks for about 2 minutes and you have a great backing track to improvise over that doesn't sound nearly as midi driven as it used to.

Tuxguitar FTW.

And Tuxguitar can convert TG into GP5 or GP4.

Prof. musicians ftw!
PMs can convert sheetmusic into real music, GP4, GP5, and even GP6 if you tell them so! you can even use them for backing tracks!
The usage is intuitive and the interface, visually, is very appealing. (provided it's the female version)







sorry, i had to do that.

awe, use whatever you want to create masterpieces.
beethoven didnt have GP5/6 and his stuff was pretty ok. (at least some of it)

No it doesn't. Why would you say it does?

GP6 is superior.

The hardest thing to get used to was the percussion writing, but eventually I got used to it. I still sometimes open GP5 to write a drum track then paste it into GP6, just because I'm so used to it I can do it faster.

The RSE is great in GP6. I hated RSE before, I think I used it once with GP5.

The interface is much easier to navigate around. It's so different, but you get used to it in a week or two.

My only problem is that the RSE in GP6 can't replicate a church organ very well, which I like to write for.

There WAS a website that could convert GPX to GP5, but after 2 weeks, it packed up and stopped working.

Aside from that, no, there is no way of doing it without buying GP6.

There still is such a website:
http://www.webtabplayer.com/

Just upload the GPX tab and let it load, then click Download and you'll be able to download it in gp5

I started GP with the version 6, so the drum writing wasn't a problem for me. Now I can write normal drum lines even though I've played drums only 1 or 2 times in my life And looking on screenshots of GP5 interface, I can say GP6 looks much more comfortable to use. I also used Tuxgutiar, and it's damn uncomfortable to use.

Really? I thought the easy-to-correct style of tux was far easier than any guitar pro version. Also, takes me ages to write anything complex on GP, but takes no time in tux. The only downside to using tux is the lack of control over velocities/F10 everything, but when converting to MIDI, its easy enough to adjust in a DAW anyway. I also think the RSE is shit, it doesn't sound realistic and the samples dont sound good at speed. Normal MIDI engine is enough to convey notes clearly while still having individual tonality.
