Well, the thing is, I'm trying to compose music on Guitar Pro for a piano. I've got two different tracks (one for each hand) each set to Acoustic Piano, all that jazz. I just need to know: What would be the best tunings for each track to make it easy to compose a piece. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I would actually go as far as to recommend a different program called Finale.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finale_(software)

I used to use it before when I had different piano sheet music. It works just like GP in a sense. I think there are some trial versions you can use and I remember Finale Notepad being one of the basic ones that is cheap assuming you aren't about to do something illegal like download it somewhere else -_-

Well, I may have forgotten how to do this but in one of the toolbar menus you can select to show a piano which you can choose which notes to hit, and it automatically sets it to a fret.

I know. That's what I'm doing to compose the song. But I still have to set the tuning for the track. I need one for each hand. but I don't know two tunings that go together good for piano.

First of all, I didn't ask for guitar tunings or a bass tuning. Secondly, which notes are those. On the tunings there's F0, F1, F2, F3, etc. Can you explain what the hell that post was supposed to mean?

Post the left-hand, as a 7-string standard ----> BEADGBE, and leave the right hand in 6-string standard. simple.

I have nightmares about composing on Finale. It is at least seventeen million times harder to use than Guitar Pro.

why would the tunings matter? the guitar tabs are irrelevant, just use the piano board thingy and look at the sheet music

because if you leave it as standard guitar tunings, you can't hit all the notes on the keyboard. it leaves out about 3 octaves of notes on the low end. plus you can't two notes that would normally interfere with each other on a guitar. know what i'm saying?

I actually like Finale a lot. A friend of mine used it. But I just don't have the time or the money to buy and learn a new program. Too complicated.

That's to set the octave. For a reference, Middle C is C4.

this, apart from do it so it's all in fourths, or at least so the intervals are the same between all the strings. It makes it easier, trust me.
