I have a midi file I've downloaded off the internet and imported it into guitar pro. The only problem is that when I do so the timing gets off at random places and instead of dotted sixteenths, many times i get weird triplet notation. Does anyone else get this problem and know a way around it?
No, I get dotted 16ths. Do you have Guitar Pro 5?
yeah would guitar pro 4 be better?
I don't think you will get an exact transcription of the song no matter what you try. You will have to go in and manually modify the pieces that GP got wrong. I think it is just beyond any software capability to do this...
