Is there a place where i can download a free version of guitar pro?
the link from UG brought me to a site where i only got a month trial version.
Is there even a free version, of will have to buy a copy?
Thanks!

The only free version of Guitar Pro last for a month, otherwise you have to buy it. Powertab is free on the other hand. Not as good as Guitar Pro but you can't argue with the price.

if u wanna stay legal yes, you will have to buy a copy.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

Nope, there's no free version of it, but it's cheaper than most programs you would have to buy for other things (i.e. Microsoft Office, graphics programs, OS's).

Also, you can pirate it if you want, but it's illegal and Guitar Pro is prettey darn good at catching pirated copies, at which point the key used won't ever work on your computer again short of reformatting the hard drive. Plus, viruses often accompany keygens.

yeah, it's not worth it to download stuff illegally. even audiobooks can have viruses.

by the way, how much is guitar pro?

does tuxguitar play guitar pro files?
yes.
Imports and exports gp3,gp4 and gp5 files

and you can create files or edit them, and someone with GP can play them.

to tell the truth, buying GP isn't all that bad.

In my honest opinion, it was the best $60 I've ever spent. It's so useful for any musician. If I were you, I would buy it. It's not like $60 is extensive. 2 days working on minimum wage?

I downloaded it once, and I didn't like the way it worked. too confusing in comparison to GP. But, since it works with .ptb files too, tuxguitar is better in a way.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

i'm personally against the "purchasing" of software...
it's usually sh!t...

is tuxguitar similar to powertab? or is it a totally different program?
#19
it's a different program that does many of the same kind of things.
TuxGuitar is similar to GuitarPro.

kinda like Adobe Photoshop compared with Microsoft Paint.

if you have the money, you buy Photoshop. if not you get by with Paint.

compared to GuitarPro, it takes much much less memory...
but then again, i'm using Fedora so everything runs 10x better...
