I find making the drum beats in gp5 a lot easier, i knew which number everything was. It's taking me a lot longer to make the drums in gp6... Another disappoint is the RSE, I really don't like the tones and the P.M sound absolutely horrible.
#43
gonna download this and see what its like. Hate when they make good things too complicated for whats its used for. I'll hold my thoughts untill I use it tho.
#44
Downloading the demo now, I seen this the other day and I thought "why isn't there a thread on UG about this yet??!" but I was burnt out so I went to bed.
I'm excited for the custom-tone features and for the fact that you can open multiple files in a window

RSE is a million times better than GP5 in my opinion, except now you actually have to pay attention to levels, effects and overall mixing, which is fine with me. Don't use the default settings, they're mostly just to show off effects rather than sound good at all times.

Gp4 -> Gp5 -> Gp6. All the same with minor updates (to the eye, anyways). It's like Dye making new DM's; just improving cosmetics.

it seems great but there are no tabs that will open with it as they are all older versions

so? you can open .gp3 and .gp4 tabs with GP5 so why wouldn't you be able to open it with GP6?

I downloaded guitar pro 6 but i need a working used ID and all that. If anyone would be so nice as to share, my GP5 used ID doesnt wanto work, and its frustrating!!

Hey boys and girls (Dudes and Chicks),

I wanted to learn Rainbow in the Dark, and I didn't find the GP tabs here to be very good, so I transcribed the song in GP6 (See the attached file). This was also for testing the software. Now for you Dio fans GP6 rookies like myself, I loaded an MP3 into Sonar (recording software), and listened to the left and right channels of the tracks to get the multiple guitar parts as close as I could by ear. The drums I did in Sonar. That was much easier the GP6. Then I output the the Sonar file as a midi file and loaded it into GP6 with the tempo changes. I took a long time on the solo, using software to slow down the tempo to try and get it transcribed right... I believe I'm pretty close with it. But as those who know, when you slow down an MP3 in recording software or trainers, it distorts the MP3 so much it's hard to tell what's being played, especially if you laying down notes as fast as Vivian did on this song.

Here are my thoughts GP6 so far:

Other instruments such as vocals and keyboards need to be done as a guitar tracks using different instruments for sound if you want to have bends and the like.Pinch and Semi Harmonics kind of suck in this version. The developers for GP6 need to implement sound mixing for how strong they are as an overtone and give us more options on choices of harmonics. Not all harmonics are above an octave.Palm Muting is about the same as harmonics. You need more control over how strong it is and it changes drastically with different guitar rig setups.I like where they are going with the amp and effect choices with the RSE, but its hard to get the sound you want. I'm not completely happy with the sounds of the instruments in this transcription, but it could be worse. I'm sure this will improve in later releases of GP6.Pick Scratching..... Come on developers..... This is used so much, and it has never been implemented an any version of GP?I really like the new layout now that I'm used to it.The mixing and mastering setup they have now is pretty cool.
At this time you can't upload GP6 tabs on this site, so that is why it is posted here. Well I hope you enjoy this tab and comments on it and this post are welcome.

when they came out with GP5 I thought that it can't get any worse and of course they set out to prove me wrong and released GP6. Huge memory leaks? Bring 'em! Worse GUI? Yes mother****er! Shitload of effects and stuff that don't sound real? Oh shit, I just came.

This is borderline retarded, the guys who made this have obviously forgotten what they set out to do.

What do you use GP for? I'd say to write down your songs and perhaps play along with some of them? What do we get in gp6? Assload of configuration to the track you add, (already mentioned in this thread) inability to use tab's for anything but guitar/bass track, really confusing and bad "realistic sound engine".

Maybe it was the fact that the demo pissed me off so fast and was so useless to me that I didn't find where I could just swicth on good ole' general MIDI sound generator and not deal with the vast array of those pointless pedals, amps etc. Jeez, I *ALREADY HAVE* a realistic sound engine, his name is Isaac Newton, Nikolai Tesla and Albert Einstein - physics! I can plug in my guitar and hear how this really sounds.
The RSE sounds so off and confusing, rendering it utterly useless. Yeah and the faster the track is, the worse it gets!
Why do I need to take assful of time to setup how my score sounds?

It makes me sad that really soon the only GP tabs I'm gonna get are gtx's and I'd HAVE to use GP6 to open them. Thanks Arobas!

Checked out the demo and it looks really good, the sounds off the guitar in "metal solo" is incredible, with some mixing you could fool someone into thinking its an actual guitar, I'll wait
until they release an update before buying it, we've all had trouble with unstable version of Guitar pro.

Question to anyone that has it, when I try to copy the only options are to copy a note or multitrack copy every instrument, is their no way top copy a whole bar from one instrument and paste into another??
#57
In GP5 you could tune each string individually, but on GP6 you have to hear them one after the other. I can't seem to find a way to solve this, but the help site says you can.

Am I doing something obviously wrong, or are other people having this problem?

I bought it. you can open gp5 tabs in it. but the drums gotta be tabbed by notation only,so that's kinda messed....
#59
I bought it the other day. Well worth the money, although there are a couple of things I've not worked out yet, like changing the tuning of the guitar without transposing the tab to remain in the same pitch, and it doesn't have the option of tabs for the drums like previous versions did.

Also, the RSE controls and the fact that there's no RSE loading time is a great feature.

THIS ^

* AutoTabber

* GuitarHero with GP tabs

* Amp support

* 3D stuff and finger animations

* Music Videos


That looks VERY promising. I need to see more about their autotabber feature, though.

It's the same as GP5, you can either ctrl+c the highlighted bar(s) for the current instrument and paste it anywhere or you can ctrl+shift+c for all instruments on the highlighted bar(s)

The guitar toolbar on the left (see screenshot), you can tune each string individually

Hi there!
We've had trouble getting the imports from older formats to work. It's now been fixed, and the next update will let you do just that.
#68
Quote by killergege
One real downside is that, for now, the old files (gp3, gp4, gp5) are not really well handled. Every tab has to be edited, at least for RSE config & adjusting sound levels.
Worse, often the tabs are altered (some symbols disappeared, on some tab I lost harmonics...).
But they are working on fixing that so I guess it will be soon a really great tool !

You can follow the news about it on their facebook page : http://www.facebook.com/pages/Arobas-Music-Guitar-Pro/153747039336?ref=nf

GP6 is actually a complete rewrite, whereas previous versions were developments of the same core. Hence the new GPX format, which is designed to remain viable in the future.

You're actually right. Guitar Pro is and remains first and foremost an editor, and we've put in a lot of work to make it as complete as possible. The RSE and all the nifty gadgets that so many of our customers do expect are all nice, but you may notice that everything that has to do with writing music has been perfected to correspond both to songbook standards and to musical theory.
Let me know what you think. Your feedback is appreciated.

for the love of god, what the hell were they thinking, this program SUCKS.

all the instruments besides stringed instruments are in standard notation.
you've got to be kidding me.

horns, piano, drums, everthing.
how the hell am i supposed to tab things out in this thing, i mainly tab video game music, and it's near impossible for me to do this without then being in tab format.

this is guitar pro, everything should be in tab format.

please tell me there's a way around this, i can double click on the name and it gives an option to switch, but other than guitars it's all blanked out.

i will admit though, it sounds much better, but i still prefer midi sounds.

chill down man your not the only one with such a problem! yeah it gives you only the standard Key and Bass key nothing else! it doesn't necessarily have to be in TAB format but also in notation only. however if your writing music for games and using horns, strings and other orchestral instruments than what the heck?? Guitar Pro isnt for you. it clearly says GUITAR pro.. not Orchestral Pro or what not. go get the Finale or Sibelius and you'll be happy as i am! you can do anything that's ever existed in musical theory and notation grammar.. you can do even those that never existed... :p

as for the GP 6.. when writing other instruments as a sheet music can you write more than 6 notes at once? (old GPs had this problem as the guitar strings were 6.. max 7 youcould only write 6-7 notes max at once)

I agree that it was great to be able to display other instruments than guitar in tab notation (because sometimes I like to play with my guitar some music written for other instruments).
But it is possible to do that with some manipulation : just copy the note to a new track set as "guitar track" and then in the Sound bank change it to another instruments

Although I agree that GP has some issues, but sorry, on the basic idea, what happened here is correct... Any instrument player beside a guitar/bass/banjo... player use standard notation.
If you write "orchestral" music, why don't you write in standard notation ? This notation is really logical, well documented... And as easy to write as Tab if you're musician.

And if you're not satisfied with that, write it in a guitar track and copy paste to another instrument track when finished.
#78
you guys missed the point, IT'S GUITAR PRO, so everything should be in tabs. if it's just meant for guitar then why are there other instruments on there. which means if it's meant for guitar only and guitar tracks are written in tabs, then why wouldn't all of it be written like that?

i play guitar, write out the music on guitar, the great thing about guitar pro 5 is that i can write out the tabs and then just use a midi patch to another instrument.
and you're wrong it's great for orchestral pieces. the beauty of it is someone like me who can't read music can write out orchestral pieces in a form that's fast and easy to understand.
i write everything, even metal tracks use piano's, jazz songs use horns. i don't use guitar pro for just guitar only, i write high quality songs on there. i've released almost 300 songs on guitar pro, this program is perfect for me. as for video game tabs i've done, when people on this site want to learn them how are they going to play them? most people can't read music, yeah i could just write it all on guitar but it would sound like crap trying to substitute other instruments as guitars.

copying the tracks seems like a good idea, but if you ask me guitar pro is really screwed. i consider this a HUGE flaw
yes, i am really frustrated at this, everything that was great about guitar pro has been raped in the ass.
i'll just stick with guitar pro 5 for now, hopefully the people that made this will realized their mistake and there will be a new version with all this fixed.

pfft that is a pretty silly complaint - you can tab everything bar the drums in tab format, and instead of changing instruments you just copy and paste it into another track. It really isn't that different from GP5.

no, i don't think it's a silly complaint at all. you don't don't tab as much as i do, even if i do copy and paste you don't realize how trivial that could get.

it's not even the writing aspect, it's the learning aspect too. what if i want to learn a piano part on guitar, i'd have to copy and paste the track to a guitar track. it's just completely pointless and inefficient to have to do this.
is it so hard to ask for the option to switch between standard/tab like you can with the guitars?

maybe i'm not explaining myself the way i want too, i'm too tired and am not thinking too coherently at this moment.
