Guitar Pro 7 edit tablatures for guitar bass
Guitar Pro 7 allows you to edit your music scores and tablature for guitar, bass, and ukulele. This is a most thorough yet user-friendly tool for musicians who wish to get better, compose, or simply play along. Editing sheet music has never been easier.
Guitar Pro is first and foremost a software designed to edit tablatures for guitar, bass, and other fretted instruments from 4 to 8 strings.
Top features in Guitar Pro 7
The interface gets more modern still, and more user-friendly. A toolbar contains the main functionalities of the software and an inspector simplifies choosing the song and tracks settings.
Performance and ease of use
Software startup and file loading have been enhanced. Scrolling and zooming are now both smoother. The install/update process is also improved.
The software is compatible with high resolution screens (Retina and HD) and touch screens.
Quality of the score's design
The score-display engine has been entirely rewritten for even more realistic, professional sheet music.
New musical notation elements
Notation now includes golpe, pick scrape, and dead slap. The writing of bends in standard notation has been enhanced, and we have improved the management of conflicts between the various elements of the score.
Tablature for all tracks
In addition to fretted instruments like guitars, standard notation gets automatically transposed into tablature — this on all tracks, including piano, voice or drums.
Connect your guitar to Guitar Pro
Plug your guitar into an external sound card connected to Guitar Pro and apply to it the effects exactly as they have been modeled for any track in a given file.
Simply brush down the six strings together to check their tuning in a single stroke.
New instrument banks
Many sounds have been added, including the dobro, flamenco, manouche, and 7-string nylon guitars, the electric sitar, fretless bass, jazz double bass, accordions, mellotron, harmonicas, bagpipe, new synthesizers, and drum machines.
You can choose between mono and stereo for all acoustic instruments, as well as add automatic spacialization to drumkits.
Simplified audio adjustments
Choose and modify your sound from over 1000 presets combining a soundbank and an effects chain.
Guitar Pro 7 makes it possible, within any given single file, to mix tracks that use MIDI tones with others that use RSE tones.
Virtual fretboard and keyboard
The virtual-instrument (guitar, bass, banjo, and piano) windows are resizable.
Lock your files
You may lock your file to prevent any accidental modification. You may also add a password to it, to keep it from being opened or edited.
New audio-export formats
MP3, FLAC and Ogg formats are available when exporting RSE (Realistic Sound Engine) tracks. It is also possible to export all tracks separately in a single operation.
MIDI and MusicXML formats
Imports and exports in MIDI and MusicXML formats have been improved for better compatibility between Guitar Pro and other musical software programs.
To sum up...
This new version of Guitar Pro takes into account our users’ many suggestions with a more complete and professional graphical rendering of musical scores, an improved MIDI and MusicXML import/export, the addition of audio export formats and the return of drum-track editing by use of tablature digits.
The software’s user-friendliness has been entirely redesigned and modernized to support creativity and make audio fine-tuning ever easier. The program is now smoother, faster, and compatible with high-resolution screens.
Finally, it has never been more simple and enjoyable to play a song with Guitar Pro, thanks its new audio line-in feature.

All of the symbols and effects
With Guitar Pro, add all of the common musical symbols to your score, most notable those that are specific to the guitar and other fretted instruments
Tablature and standard notation
Both types of notation are perfectly synchronized: the notes capture into one get immediately reported into the other.

Based on the classic or jazz styles, you can set 70 different parameters, configure the outlook of your scores exactly as you wish, and get professional-level paper printouts.
Guitar Pro is also a powerful score player, which facilitates composing or learning a piece.
The RSE (Realistic Sound Engine) technology includes the realistic studio recordings of instruments, as well as some effect modelisations that are the result of years of research.
You'll get access to over a hundred soundbanks, and over fifty effects pedals and amps. We provide many presets for all styles, and you can also configure your own effect chains. You can apply a mastering to the final result, with a compressor-limiter, a reverb, and a 10-track equalizer.
You can also listen to your scores in MIDI sound.
In Guitar Pro 6 the RSE2 offers over a hundred soundbanks, new integrated presets, and the possibility to entirely configure the sound of each track
Optimized playback options
During playback, the score automatically scrolls on and a highlighted cursor lets you know which note is being played. You can adjust tempo, and play all or part of a piece in loops. The Speed Trainer will then let you play any section of the score in loops with progressive accelerations. This is very useful to practice a solo or a complex guitar riff!
All of the effects specific to the guitar (e.g., bend, slide, ghost notes, etc.) are rendered into the playback, as well as the various possible playing styles – pickstroking, fingerpicking or slapping, for instance.
Improved Management of Automations
In a new window, you can customize precisely the changes of volume, tempo, and panoramic during playback.
Soundboard, global view
For each track, the Guitar Pro Soundboard lets you adjust the volume, the panoramic, and the semi-parametric equalizer.
You can also use it to mute one or several tracks, and choose to show or hide them. An ideal tool when you want to use Guitar Pro as backing band
The global view allows you to get a synthetic view of the score, and thus to easily move around it. You can define various sections in a score, such as Intro, Verse, or Chorus.
Guitar Pro is a true workshop for guitarists: chord and scale libraries, tuner, metronom, virtual fretboard and keyboard.
All of those tools work with fretted instruments from 4 to 8 strings.
Request any chord in any tuning, and Guitar pro will display all possible finger positions for you. Draw a diagram by clicking on the grid, and Guitar Pro will suggest all possible names for that chord.
The scale engine presents a large directory of scales, from the most common to the most exotic, for you to look at and listen to. Whichever scale you select can be shown on the fretboard or keyboard to work as support for you to write your score. The search function also allows you to quickly find out what scale is being used in all or part of the score.
MIDI and digital tuners
The digital tuner allows you to tune your guitar by plugging it into the soundcard, or via a microphone. You can also simply tune your guitar by ear, string by string, with the MIDI tuner.
Those work for all possible tunings.
Virtual fretboard and keyboard
The virtual fretboard and keyboard are here to help you see the notes from the score, or capture them into it. They can show you the notes of the current beat, as well as the notes of the next beat, of the whole bar or yet again of the scale you have selected. Those are indispensable tools if you are beginning or is you wish to capture notes with the mouse.
Since the Guitar Pro format has become a true standard on the Internet, the software will let you enjoy thousands of scores that are already available over many websites (files in *.gtp, *.gp3, *.gp4, *.gp5 and *.gpx formats).
A MIDI file consistes in a mere description of musical data, which Guitar Pro turns into an actual multitrack tablature. The software calculates and optimizes the position of each note on the fretboard for you to play it as easily as possible. You can also export the tablature as a MIDI file for use in another software.
The ASCII format — or simple text file — was the first format used for the sharing of tablatures. It is so easy to use via a mere text editor that it is still widely used today, in spite of its outdated look. Guitar Pro will let you convert ASCII files into tablatures in one click, to play them or print them out. The reverse option is also possible.
With the WAV Export option, you can convert a Guitar Pro file into an audio file, which you can play or burn onto an audio CD.
Exporting into PNG (image) will let you save your tablatures as big-sized pictures. Those pictures can for instance be integrated into a webpage for wider diffusion, or edited with the appropriate software for pedagogical purposes.
The PDF format is standard when you wish to distribute your scores.
