Guitar Pro is a multitrack tablature editor for guitar, banjo and bass. Besides writing scores, Guitar Pro is a complete tool for young and accomplished guitarists alike to progress, compose, or simply accompany themselves.
Guitar Pro 5 is the ultimate toolbox for the guitarist! It includes all the tools you need to improve, compose and accompany yourself on the guitar. The simple and intuitive multitrack tablature editor is specifically designed for guitar, bass or other stringed instruments. Known for its ease of use, Guitar Pro allows you to enter notes by using keyboard keys, mouse clicks on an on-screen fretboard or directly through a connected MIDI device, all in just a few minutes. This revolutionary software can handle up to 256 tracks, and you can switch from tablature view to standard notation for editing scores. With automatically calculated rhythms, Guitar Pro works out the note durations for you, and when you play the score, the music scrolls along with you, rendering guitar-specific effects like bends and slides. Also included in Guitar Pro 5 are a digital guitar tuner, a chord diagram engine, and a scales tool. You can easily import and export MIDI and ASCII tab formats allowing Guitar Pro to be used with a limitless number of songs. With its ease-of-use, versatility and variety of tools, Guitar Pro will have you creating music in no time!
· Multitrack tablature editor
With multitrack/monotrack display, horizontal or vertical scrolling, the screen display adjusts to your preferences and score types.
· Chord Diagram editor
The chord diagram generator allows you to easily add chord diagrams to your score, but it is also a unrivalled reference tool for the guitarist. Ask for any chord in any tuning and Guitar Pro will show you every diagram possible. Create a chord diagram by clicking on the grid, and Guitar Pro will give you all the corresponding names. A must-have tool for learning and composing!
· Scales Tool
The scale tool allows you to view and listen to a large number of scales, from the most common to the most exotic. The selected scale can be displayed on the fretboard or keyboard and thus serve as a reference for writing a score. An analysis function is also available to search the whole score or part of it for scales used.
· Digital or MIDI Tuner
The digital tuner allows you to tune your guitar by plugging it to the sound card input or by using a microphone. The MIDI tuner allows you to tune your guitar by ear, string after string. The tuners work for every tuning possible, from 4- to 7-strings.
· Fretboard and Keyboard
The fretboard, available for 4- to 7-strings, allows you to view and enter notes on the score. It is able to show the notes of the current beat, but also the notes for the next beat, the complete bar or the selected scale. This is a really great tool for beginners or for quick work with the mouse. The keyboard is also available, and has the same features as the fretboard. It can be handy for non-guitar tracks.
· Metronome and Countdown
The metronome gives the tempo while playing a score or even without playing it. The countdown gives the tempo on an empty bar before playing the score. It gives you the time to take up your instrument after having launched the playback.
