And the Tab Goes On…

Guitar Pro 6 Review

Guitar Pro started out as a small tab editor but, as time went by, it soon became an indispensable software for guitar and bass players alike. Now, with the sixth version out, Guitar Pro could actually create a new category of its own. Read more…

    Arobas Music Guitar Pro 6Published on 07/30/14 at 13:06
    Writing for electric guitar presents a lot of difficulties when it comes to traditional scoring software, so since its first version Guitar Pro has been a must for every guitar player that wants to leave a detailed written version of their creations or transcriptions. For some, it has even become a part of the composition process in guitar-oriented tracks (a clear interface and a focus on speed writing are crucial tools).

    That being said, I was sad to see I was having problems with Guitar Pro 6 from the moment I installed it. It took me a while until it recognized my EMU Tracker Pre or my M-Audio FastTrack. The interface is accessible enough but confusing to those who come from previous......

    Writing for electric guitar presents a lot of difficulties when it comes to traditional scoring software, so since its first version Guitar Pro has been a must for every guitar player that wants to leave a detailed written version of their creations or transcriptions. For some, it has even become a part of the composition process in guitar-oriented tracks (a clear interface and a focus on speed writing are crucial tools).

    That being said, I was sad to see I was having problems with Guitar Pro 6 from the moment I installed it. It took me a while until it recognized my EMU Tracker Pre or my M-Audio FastTrack. The interface is accessible enough but confusing to those who come from previous versions of Guitar Pro and wish to continue working in the same fashion(I'm not complaining about changes here, Sibelius 7 was a big step forward because it was actually easier to use once you got used to it).

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    As soon as a file is loaded the screen is filled with an invasive lateral toolbar that leaves no actual writing space. This, of course, slows down work either if you come from previous versions (because you will have to readjust to the new writing space) or if you just find it comfortable to have a nice perspective of everything you are writing or reading.

    I've had quite a few random crashes (but then again, this has always been an issue with Guitar Pro). It also shows slowdowns even when the PC should fully support it. In my mind, those are huge setbacks: the main purpose of Guitar Pro is to provide a stable transcription tool. The other great problem is compatibility with sound interfaces: it took me some time to get the playback correctly working and not lagging after reproduction.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have used Guitar Pro for as long as I can remember. Years before the idea of becoming a musician had crossed my mind I used to spend an awful lot of time writing 'songs' on Guitar Pro. I remember I used to complain about the unrealistic MIDI sound. Now that I work as a professional musician I wish Guitar Pro would go back to that. As the versions pass Arobas tries to cram into Guitar Pro more and more tools for 'realistic' sound (studio effects, amps, pedals, etc.), forgetting that this software was originally intended for transcription.

    The result is a transcription software that has sacrificed stability and performance (and those definitely weren't issues they had already mastered!), as well as usability and efficiency, just to add a half-hearted attemp at modelation and emulation. It has passed from being a very useful and reliable tool to a mediocre program. I'd definitely reccomend to any user of older versions (specially 2, 3 and 4) to stick with that.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it frequently and over a year.
    I try free spreadsheets found on the net, version 4 and 5 of Guitar Pro ... nothing compares.
    In this interface is not very different annoying, you get used to quickly interface more intuitive GP6.

    The +
    * Intuitive
    * Possible to edit many tracks and instruments
    * The exports to PDF, midi, wave and GP5 (available after update) are welcome
    * Many tunings available with 7 and 8 strings (for 8 strings, it seems to me that GP5 did not do)

    The -
    * The freezes and crashes, not enough stable.
    * Sounds CSR gives a slight glimpse but protects a misnomer because the sounds are far from being realistic (but it's still more enjoyable than the noonday ...).
    * GP5 offered the opportunity to build the battery pack "solfègique" AND so "tablature" with a number corresponding to an element (38 = clear box / 40 = kick). The latter approach has been eliminated in version GP6 which is unfortunate, because if Guitar Pro is designed for drummers guitarist more than it would have been better to just keep this scoring system, especially for non-drummers for have the opportunity to learn the nomenclature battery.

    Despite the drawbacks, if I do it again if necessary choices because I have not found better yet.

    Very disappointed with the sound quality. The CSR has become a sacred soup, both in GP5 was loud, but at least we differentiated the notes. Oh, there might be ways to clarify everything. But I have other things to do than configure sound for one hour to read music which will last 2 minutes and moreover will reset when you next open the software.

    Arf, you criticize, but it is the base software for GUITAR, not for the rest!

    Yes, I know, but as said before, the guitar is horrible, this is the first point. When we realize that CSR 1 (GP5) or MIDI have better quality than RSE2, ben € 60 out of pocket for it, ouch.

    I'm not talking about the interface, which in my opinion has declined, the GP5 was at least straightforward.
    And bugs. And bugs. And even bugs. But that is Arobas.

    No worries

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    iMac purchased in July 2012, 4GB ram, i5 ... In short, not enough to make one less excuse for the crash.

    Performance? I would love to know them, the software systematically plant startup after a crash while using it, since, impossible to reuse. It is an expensive single-use software!
    The little I've seen, or rather hear, is that the nuances are poorly managed for all instruments: the height of the track volume varies with the frequency of notes. As for the piano, WHETHER OR WINDOWS ON OSX, the notes are more acute and more they are low in volume.

    Never trust the piano in general; For Mac user: use with a Windows partition.

    I use it for around 2 years on PC and Mac in recent months.
    It crashes fairly regularly on PC (required to record all operations 2) and more awful lot on the Mac.
    I had five GP on PC which previously worked fine.

    Quality / price ratio: since version "exploitable" Mac has been completely botched it is very expensive for a single use.

    With experience, I regret very bitterly of having paid to use it. A word ...

    We should all be able to read / write the solfege to battery?
    If I buy this GUITAR pro is because I want an easy to use, quick to understand and for this software, tab-centric.
    I do not buy Guitar Pro to find myself with a partition editor like the others ....
    - The copy-paste is less convenient than before
    - The copy-paste the layout of the tabs annihilated therefore must start all over after a hand ... thank you ...
    - Crash too.

    Personal opinion:
    - The CSR is unnecessary, especially considering the quality of sound ...

    If you want a simple tool to transcribe your songs (I'm talking about rock / pop / metal, if you make the classical / rap at the base, this is not the software you need), rather look at the rating tux guitar. It's free and easy.

    I use GP6 in recent months. I honestly have not seen an improvement in use. I kept GP5 which allows me to still use the old format partitions GP3.

    The sound is better but, overall, I find it less practical. But it is true that it is especially cheap.
