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.
