Guitar Pro for iOS, now compatible with Guitar Pro 7

Guitar Pro for iOS, now compatible with Guitar Pro 7

We’ve updated our iOS app. This new version is now compatible with Guitar Pro 7. Let’s take a look at what’s new in Guitar Pro 1.8.0.

You can now:

  • Open Guitar Pro 7 files (.gp format)
  • Export the compositions made on the NotePad into Guitar Pro 7 format
  • Get new icon and color changes in the interface that match the Guitar Pro 7 design

 

New look for the Guitar Pro 7 app

To visually mark the new compatibility of the mobile app with Guitar Pro 7, the application icon and interface colors have been changed. The Guitar Pro 6 red is replaced by the Guitar Pro 7 blue. Your favorite music scores (available in the File Library) are also more visible as they’re identified with a yellow star.

Compatibility with Guitar Pro 7

> Music scores library
You can now hear and read your Guitar Pro 7 files in the app. This application is a complete sheet-music and tablature player that allows you to open the following file formats:

  • Guitar Pro 3 .gp3
  • Guitar Pro 4 .gp4
  • Guitar Pro 5 .gp5
  • Guitar Pro 6 .gpx
  • Guitar Pro 7 .gp
  • PowerTab .ptb

This app is the perfect tool for learning, practicing, and playing your favorite compositions and songs anywhere, anytime. Choose the notation mode for display (tablature, standard notation, or slash), add or hide the fretboard/keyboard, use the metronome and the visual countdown, change the tempo, transpose your piece by half-tones.

 

 

> NotePad tool

You can use the NotePad tool to write up a riff idea or a melody. It is now possible with this update to export your composition into .gpx and .gp formats (Guitar Pro 6 and 7) and later carry on with your song in Guitar Pro for Windows or Mac.

The NotePad tool allows you to create a single-track tablature for guitar, bass, banjo, ukulele, and mandolin in your application. Customize the tuning (3- to 8-string instruments), the tempo, the sound (19 sounds available) and find all of the usual musical symbols pertaining to the guitar and to other stringed instruments.

This version also includes some bug fixes and improvements to bring you the very best of the Guitar Pro experience.

An update for the Android version will come next. Download it today from the AppStore or Google Play!

    You’ve broken the sound clips. I have over 50 files, all of which have been written with “distorted guitar” Now when I open them they’ve defaulted to “nylon guitar” which means I have to manually change each one before playing. To add insult to injury, my change isn’t saved, so I have to select “distorted guitar” EACH TIME I OPEN A FILE! C’mon guys!!!!!

    It’s a pretty good app. But as someone who doesn’t own a PC it’s my main means of tabbing out music. It would be great to have some extra notation for notes (i:e show volume swells, add grace notes, pre-bends, etc.). Any chance…….

    Hi Tim and thank you. I’m forwarding your request to our team. The app will be updated.

    It would be great to have the ability to write for more voices, in the IOS app. I understand you maybe want to stimulate people to also buy guitar pro 7. But that can easily be done by only giving the people with GP7 access to the multi voice functionality. I do most of my music writing work while on the road and then I seldom carry my MacBook with me…..

    Guitar Pro 7 has been out for almost exactly a year and the official Android app is still incompatible. That’s… sad?

    Come on guys, you can do it!

    Hi Sem, thank you for your suggestion, I’m forwarding it to our team. Thanks

    Hi Patrick, we are working on it. Yes we can, thanks.

    Any news when GP7 will be available for Android tablets?

    Would be great to add a backing track mp3 and tab over the top.

    Hi Ken, we are working on it.

    Hi Chris, thank you for your suggestion.
