Guitar Pro 7 Signature Sounds Explained

Guitar Pro 7 Signature Sounds Explained

There are over 700 signature sounds available in Guitar Pro 7. They allow you to reproduce the rigs and sound settings of the greatest guitar players, such as David Gilmour, Jimi Hendrix, Slash, Van Halen, and more.

Use them to improve the sound of your own Guitar Pro files, or plug your guitar into your computer and start playing using Guitar Pro 7 presets! No need to buy an entire guitar rig’s worth of gear to have fun.

So as to get closest to the real-life sounds of these legendary guitar players, each signature sound consists in the addition of an RSE (Real Sound Engine) instrument to an entire rig (with amps, pedals, and effects rack). Each sound recreates the entire chain of effects from the instrument to the amp, and you can also customize the settings.


Where to find them in GP7

You can find the signature sounds in the track inspector located on the right-hand side of your Guitar Pro 7 window. These sounds are labeled signatures.

Click on the name of the sound to display the list of sounds.

The Signatures category is available at the bottom of each type of instrument. These signature sounds have been crafted for:

• Acoustic guitars

• Electric guitars

• Basses

• Keyboards et synthesizers

• Orchestral instruments

• Drums and percussions


How to identify them

    Hi Gwen, you can’t directly import GP6 presets. But if you are using Windows you can place your GP6 presets into that file: %AppData%\Arobas Music\GuitarPro7\My Effect Chain Presets or if you are on Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Arobas Music/guitarpro7/My Effect Chain Presets. if you need help don’t hesitate to contact our support here: goo.gl/tq6163 Thanks
