Okay im trying to get a guitar pro guitar track to transfer to audacity so i can record vocals with it. i save the file as a midi, and i can upload it to audacity, and it shows up and everything, but i cant play it and i dont know where to go from here. i want the track to be playing as i record vocals over it. is this an option?

and before you ask, no this isnt for a finished product. im not rings of saturn im just trying to get a good idea of how the vocals sound with chords etc. but it is important that i learn how to do this cause i will need to for drums and bass on other tracks

You may wanna try and export a wav file instead of a midi.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I think you are misunderstanding what a midi file is (or maybe I am not understanding your question). A midi file is computer file that contains information that allows sound modules to play notes that trigger sounds like drums, keys and other instruments. A midi file itself does not contain any audio information (wav, Mp3, Mp4, etc.). Audacity does not contain an internal midi sound library as some other recording software might (like Sonor). If you have a midi file that you want to use you need to play it through midi compatible software, a keyboard or module sound module first and record that output to Auacity.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.

It's very simple to transfer audio from Guitar Pro to Audacity.

In Guitar Pro: solo the track you want, then export as a .wav file.

In Audacity: File | Import | Audio | navigate to correct folder and you will see the .wav file waiting to be clicked.

This definitely works. I've done it a thousand times.
