I'm making a tab in Guitar Pro 5, but for a large part of the tab (on multiple instruments) I have the tempo set to 258 BPM, but I started deciding that it would make more sense for the beats to be twice as long. Is there any way I could change it so the beats are twice as long without changing the tempo, then manually going in and making EVERY note half the length, and then cutting notes from every second measure and putting them into the bar before it? I'm guessing the answer is most likely no, but I'd rather live with it how it is (not really a huge deal) than doing all that manual work.

Wait.
You want to cut the BPM in half, but not change the tempo?

Add in a mix table thing at the beginning of the bar(s) you want to change (press f10 if you want) and change the tempo to half time then after the section you want like that put in another mix table and put the tempo back to normal time...

I think that should do what you want...your decription confuses me slightly...

you could change the signature to the double.

for example if your song is in 4/4, make it 8/4. if it0s 15/16 make it 30/16

I don't think the 8/4 time sig thing would do what I want. I know I made it sound confusing, so let me try to make it clearer. The tempo is 258 BPM, but I want a beat to be twice as long without actually changing the speed of the song. The tempo would be 129 (half of 258) and for example a quarter note would become an eigth note and a half note would become a quarter note, and every two measures would become one measure. I know that still sounds confusing, and I'm pretty sure there's nothing I can do anyway.

Oh, in that case you could cut the bpm in half, and put it in cut time. Looks like a c with a slash through it.

It's annoying when this happens when jamming something up to GP5 or a drum machine.

select every note, draging the mouse... press "minus"

then change everthing to 8/4 or 6/4 or whatever you must...

then change BPM

hope it was useful!

I'm not sure that there is a way to do that without going and adjusting every note.

Assuming that what you want to do is to maintain the speed of the song, but change the tempo, and therefore the value of each note. For example, if the song speed was 200, you would change it to 100 and then adjust all of the crotchets (1/4 notes) to quavers (1/8 notes) for ease of viewing.

The problem with selecting everything and pressing the minus key would be that you would be left with bars that would be half empty, and I'm not sure if it will shift all of the notes easily like that...

Dragonforce? I don't even know what that is. Isn't it that Japanese card game "Dragon Force Z"?
