Top features in Guitar Pro 7

New interface

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.

High resolution

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.

Polyphonic tuner

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.

Stereo sounds

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.

Improved instrument views

The virtual-instrument (guitar, bass, banjo, piano, and drums) 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.
