I think this question has been asked before, but it's not in this thread, nor in the GP FAQ page (I think). Sorry if it's repeated/gets asked a lot.

I have GP5, not sure which version, as I'm at home. On some tabs I get the message 'You need to upgrade your software' or something similar when I try to open them. What do I need to do?

Thanks.

^When you get home open up Guitar Pro, go to Help > About and under the GP logo there is a version number and date.

5.2 is the latest one.
#45
Okay for some reason, when I opened up the song I'd been writing all of a sudden the lead synth part is very quiet for no reason. I have it all the way up in volume and I mute everyother track and it's still barely hearable. Any solutions to this?

Ok, thanks. I have 5.0. Do you think upgrading to 5.2 will solve the problem?

I have GP5.0 but when I open a certain tab it says i need to update my software in order to view it, is it possible for me to open this tab without upgrading my software?

I don't think so

In Powertab, how do I get more than one guitar to play at the same time?

I can make upto 7 play at one time doing the work of 12 guitars.

There's many ways but first you have to Create the guitar itself. then attach a staff (section > attach staff) then make sure the timing is right and play it.

this could be the channels problem, Smug, see my pictures on page one about channels. an if you used the mix table alot to change volume with an instrument thats on the same channel, that would do it.

Does anyone know how to use delay in Guitar Pro 5? I've searched far and wide but I can't find any way other than creating other guitar tracks with the exact same notes, just moved a half a beat (or w/e) forward. That's pretty lame if it has all these sophisticated features but no easy way to use delay...
WHOALASKA!! WHOALASKAAAA!!!

I'm having problems I got Guitar Pro for nothing it seems because over 3/4's of the entire Pro Tabs here are all .gp3 extensions. My Guitar Pro only supports .gp4, and .gp5 why is that? Is my copy like broken or is it supposed to be like that? Anyway I want to be able to read the tabs in gp3 but it pops up saying something like: 'unable to download not a valid Win32 application'. Can you help me? Because the software seems scrappable if I can't even view just about any of the tabs on the entire site.


i have the same problem almost, except my copy is NOT pirated as it was suggested before the defiance64. except it tells me that i need to update my software, when its a gp3 and i have gp5. but its only just recently started to do this to gp3 files, why is that and how can i fix it

Well, that is usually the method i use for delay, but there is another way of doing it.

I'll explain when i've got time, but go download my Big Sur Moon tab by Buckethead, you'll hear a delay effect even when the two guitars are playing the notes at the exact same time.

If that's the type of delay you want i could explain better.

When i try to open a gp3 file it says "To open this file, please update your Guitar Pro Software"

I have the lastest version

It's actually Gp5.1 or 5.2

The Latest is 5.2


UG says they're all .gp3 because thats the format they imputted. It'd be such a pain in the ass if they had to do that with every update.

The update on guitar pro 5.2 has many effects with delay and others too. like grunge distortion, Pi Distortion, Phaser, legend tones, Tremolo, Reverb. ect.

When I am installing Guitar pro 5 an alert pops up saying that certain files can not be found because they are in use by another process, I've tried closing everything that may be using the files (Utorrent, Limewire ect.) but still I get the alert, any ideas?


Also, I've turned off all my anti-virus and firewall programs.

Are you busy using your windows installer with another program? if so then that's the problem.

I can't be sure. Post a printscreen of your problem please.

In GP5, when I go to export as a wav, it works, but then when I go to play back the wav file, there's no sound. And yes, my volume is turned up.

For some reason the drums and keyboard is screwed up in all of the tabs i download. It won't play so when i'm playing with the real song i'm confused cause it sounds completely different for the guitar pro tab. Can anyone try and help me get them working again?

Try clicking on the instrument name at the bottom and making sure that the RSE is selected. I came to play a couple of tabs I downloaded and they weren't selected meaning I couldn't hear the tracks.

Here's the thing. I can export my files to MIDI without any problem, and they sound like what a MIDI file should sound like. But I want to keep the realistic sound engine sound in the song, and the only way I think that could be possible would be to export it to a .wav file, and well, that obviously doesn't work.

Any solutions?

If you have a computer microphone just put your mic upto your speakers and record it as an mp3.
for Software Try Riffworks or Sony Foundry Acid 5.
for FREE Software try: http://www.download.com/Free-Easy-MP3-Sound-Recorder/3000-2170_4-10547651.html

or audacity.

If you are talking about new features since 5.0 or 5.1 then the only new feature it is is the extended RSE patches, RSE for the bass and synth.

That and a lot of bugs in it have been fixed.

But on the subject of RSE, whenever i turn it on i don't get any sound out of it, i've checked the sound settings on GP, everything's fine, i've checked the sound settings on the actual computer system, everyhting's fine, what could be the problem/how could i fix it?

Hey, could someone answer me a quick question? How do I sustain notes for more than one bar? Like, the notes I play are a whole note, but the sound always stops at the end of one bar. I'd like the sound to continue sounding out for 3 more bars. Let Ring doesn't work, and neither do Ghost notes, at least not properly. It's making me mad because I can read music but can figure out how to accomplish this. Thanks.

Go to the next bar and tie the note... I can't remember what the hot-key is though.

It actually doesn't work if you have Vista. In fact its the only thing wrong with the entire program on Vista.
