After a long wait, the new Guitar Pro is on it way out from Arobas Music.
The new version of the program was presented at NAMM (of course), an Arobas have posted a preview video of the program on YouTube (here
). From watching the video its pretty easy to tell the program has underwent a massive overhaul, in which the only con it seems to produce on first look is that long time users will have to get "re-used" to the new setup. However, the share of new features and conveniences seem to be worth it.
Probably the biggest update is that RSE offers many more instruments that were not available in the previous versions. Also, from the seems of the video, effects seem to be more available on the RSE, and easier to control. For advanced songwriters, double dot notes and slash notes will not be available to program into scores. Sadly, my favorite update to the new version is that you can open multiple scores in one window... You don't have to hear the opening song every five seconds, while clogging your computer ram and start bar (Windows users) when your listening through lots of tabs on the internet
There is no official release date set for the new program yet, i believe it may be in testing/debugging still.

Discuss your hopes, concerns and such... Aside from getting used to a new layout, im pretty excited for this, as i use Guitar Pro for all my drum and sample pre-programming
P.S. I performed a search on "Guitar Pro 6" and saw nothing before posting. I apologize if this has been posted.
