GP8 is good. I like the audio track feature. In the future, I would like to see more audio track feature additions and improvements. One important improvement would be for the SYNC points to be able to be TAPPED in. Perhaps a key on the keyboard or a MIDI controller input. You would set your start and end brackets, then tap your keyboard to the measures of the audio track as it’s playing back (and I love the fact that you can say, change the playback speed to 50% without affecting the pitch, to make the location sync points easier to locate). I think that this would make syncing the audio track to the notation real fast and easy, and if you’re really tight, you may actually have all the beats in the right place without having to nudge things!

Another logical item to add would be additional audio tracks as accompaniments to the master audio guide track. So, you would have a master sync track, then additional tracks like bass, guitars, etc., that you could record in GP8 itself. Not asking to make GP8 a full featured DAW, but just a basic Audio track recorder. Once the master sync click track is established and synced with the notation, additional added audio would have to be “played in – sync” to the additional audio tracks.

For those of us who are not professional transcribers, like me, those extra audio tracks can preserve a subtle nuance in a bass line or a complicated guitar solo that notating would be very difficult.

Which leads to the ultimate tool that is needed: REAL TIME MIDI INPUT. The ability to play a drum or guitar with a MIDI controller and have GP8 record it into notation. It wouldn’t have to be perfect, mind you, just enough so that you can fill out the song structure and get tonalities and general timings.

I write a lot of original songs and I need to be able to notate those songs quickly and easily for myself and other members of the band. Chances are pretty good that a year later I will have forgotten most of the guitar solos that I do, and I NEED to have a way to get some reasonable notation down so that I can refresh my memory. Having the actual audio clip and a framework of notation would help preserve my compositions. That is worth a lot to me.

I like the improvements that the GP team is making, and I hope that the GP team will consider some of my ideas.
