Wide-ranging new features and enhancements, for creating, playing, and sharing your tabs! Guitar Pro Portable allows you to edit your music scores and tablature for guitar, bass, and ukulele, as well as create backing tracks for drums or piano. This is a most thorough yet user-friendly tool for musicians who wish to get better, compose, or simply play along.
Guitar Pro 7, a major step forward
This new version of Guitar Pro Portable is the result of several years’ worth of development, and aims at meeting the expectations of our users by focusing on the specific needs of musicians. A redesigned interface, with a better rendering of your scores, audio improvements, and new tools – discover the many new features of Guitar Pro 7.
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.

Convert all your old files in one click
The batch converter allows you to convert all your Guitar Pro 1 to 6 files (.gtp,.gp3,.gp4,.gp5,.gpx) into Guitar Pro 7 (.gp) format. Simply choose the folder (and subfolders, if any) containing the files to convert. The original files are not deleted.
Tablature editing up to 9 and 10 strings
The Guitar Pro 7 features have been extended to include tablature editing for 9- and 10-string guitars. The chord diagrams and the fretboard also adapt to those instruments. Thus, Guitar Pro 7 now makes it possible to edit tablatures for 3- to 10-string instruments.
Enhanced soundbanks for orchestra and ukulele
Guitar Pro’s audio rendering makes use of a library that includes over 200 realistic instrument sounds, which allows you to fine-tune the sounds of the tracks in your compositions exactly as you wish. We have improved the accuracy of the soundbanks for the following instrument families: strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and ukulele.
Drums instrument view optimized for editing
With the drums view, you can choose to display the drum-kit components above each notehead on the score preview. If you like writing your drum tracks in tablature with MIDI numbers, these are detailed on the bottom part of the window so they can be selected quickly without need to memorize MIDI numbers.
Merging and splitting staves
This new tool converts a single-staff track into a two-staff track and vice versa.
