Guitar Pro 7: Now Available!

Guitar Pro 7: Now Available!

It’s official, you can now discover the brand-new Guitar Pro 7 for Windows and Mac!

Dear users, our team is happy to announce the release of a seventh version of Guitar Pro.

Many of you have submitted your ideas for improvements and we thank you. We hope you’ll enjoy this new version, the result of several years of coding and coffee to meet, looking to meet our users’ expectations.

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.

The standard music notation has been improved and we also focused on guitarists who do not master conventional music notation by offering them the ability to edit and play all the instrumental tracks in guitar tablature, thus making reading and writing music easier.


The best gets better!

  • New Interface with main features accessible via a Toolbar, and right-hand inspector window listing the properties of the song and track.
  • Tablature for all tracks – In addition to guitars and other fretted instruments, standard notation gets automatically transposed into tablature — this on all tracks, including piano, voice or drums.
  • Simplified RSE-track set-up – now by directly selecting a sound preset made of a soundbank and an effect chain.
  • Connect your guitar to Guitar Pro – Plug your guitar in and play through the effect chains of the active track (requires an audio acquisition card).
  • New audio-export formats – MP3, FLAC and Ogg.
  • 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.
  • Software performance improved – Software startup and file loading have been enhanced. Scrolling and zooming are now both smoother. The install/update process is also improved.
  • Polyphonic tuner – Simply brush down the six strings together to check their tuning in a single stroke.
  • Imports and exports improved with a particular focus on MIDI and MuiscXML.

    I have multiple sound devices on my PC and I’m finding that I can only use a sound device in GP7 if it is NOT set as the Default sound device in Windows. All other software on my PC works fine with all of my audio interfaces so I know there are no driver issues.

    Please see below Instructions to reproduce this. The sound device I want to use is a “Line 6 Helix” audio interface which is normally my default interface in Windows but in the example below I change the default device to be the PC Speakers just so I cant prove my sound interface works.

    1) Open Windows Sound Settings. Configure PC Speakers as the default sound interface.
    2) Open GP 7
    3) In GP 7 Configure sound interface to be the “Line 6 Helix” audio interface. Sound is now working.
    4) Restart GP7 and check sound is still working.
    5) Shutdown GP7
    6) In Windows Sound Settings set “Line 6 Helix” as the Default Sound Interface.
    7) Start GP 7.
    8) GP7 shows error “Audio device not available”. RSE playback no longer works but MIDI does.

    Hello Daryl, I forwarded your problem to our technical team. Thank you.

  7. linda - April 26, 2017 at 1:34 pm

    No, sorry.

  8. Johan - April 27, 2017 at 5:35 pm

    Is this version also Fretlight ready ?

  9. linda - April 28, 2017 at 10:07 am

    Yes Johan, you can use the Fretlight guitar. To do so, go to the Guitar Pro 7 Preferences… > Interface > Toolbar > Show Fretlight button. The Fretlight button will appear on the top right of the software.

    For the moment, Guitar Pro 7 is not compatible with the Wireless Fretlight guitars.
