What Is Guitar Pro 6 Fretlight Ready™ Software?
Guitar Pro 6 is software designed to create, edit and play tablature for guitar, bass, and other fretted instruments. It has a ton of features such as loop, play, slow down tempo, etc. The Fretlight Ready™ version now lets you see those fingering positions light-up right on the Fretlight fingerboard. Learning a riff or song is now a snap. It's really the best of both worlds. Best of all you can download thousands of user-created songs from many tablature websites and watch them all light-up your Fretlight guitar. Oh, you can even light the bass, keyboard and vocal parts on your Fretlight guitar.Choose from over 400 different scales which can be lit up on your Fretlight guitar across any range of frets.

How do you want to light-up the tablature? There are 3 modes: Tab, Chord Diagram, and Scales. Tab modes lights up the tablature as it plays, Chord diagram mode lights up the Chord diagrams (if the tab contains chord diagrams) and scale mode lets you light up one of the included scales (over 400). When lighting up a scale you can also choose how much of the fretboard you want to see lit up. Cool huh?!? Connect the Fretlight dual footswitch and you truly have a powerful learning system. The footswitch allows you to choose custom options for each switch so you can totally customize your practice sessions. As you can see the list of available functions is very complete. You can do everything from turn the lights on and off, to manual step through the tablature one note (group of notes) at a time.
Audio Guitar Pro is also a powerful score player, which facilitates composing or learning a piece.
The RSE: Realistic Audio Playback
The RSE (Realistic Sound Engine) technology includes the realistic studio recordings of instruments, as well as some effect modelisations that are the result of years of research. You'll get access to over a hundred soundbanks, and over fifty effects pedals and amps. We provide many presets for all styles, and you can also configure your own effect chains. You can apply a mastering to the final result, with a compressor-limiter, a reverb, and a 10-track equalizer. You can also listen to your scores in MIDI sound.
In Guitar Pro 6 the RSE2 offers over a hundred soundbanks, new integrated presets, and the possibility to entirely configure the sound of each track.
Optimized playback options
During playback, the score automatically scrolls on and a highlighted cursor lets you know which note is being played. You can adjust tempo, and play all or part of a piece in loops. The Speed Trainer will then let you play any section of the score in loops with progressive accelerations. This is very useful to practice a solo or a complex guitar riff! All of the effects specific to the guitar (e.g., bend, slide, ghost notes, etc.) are rendered into the playback, as well as the various possible playing styles: pickstroking, fingerpicking or slapping, for instance.
Improved Management of Automations
In a new window, you can customize precisely the changes of volume, tempo, and panoramic during playback.
The transport bar synthesizes your display options.
Soundboard, Global View
For each track, the Guitar Pro Soundboard lets you adjust the volume, the panoramic, and the semi-parametric equalizer. You can also use it to mute one or several tracks, and choose to show or hide them. An ideal tool when you want to use Guitar Pro as backing band. The global view allows you to get a synthetic view of the score, and thus to easily move around it. You can define various sections in a score, such as Intro, Verse, or Chorus.
Guitar Pro is a true workshop for guitarists: chord and scale libraries, tuner, metronom, virtual fretboard and keyboard. All of those tools work with fretted instruments from 4 to 8 strings.
Request any chord in any tuning, and Guitar pro will display all possible finger positions for you. Draw a diagram by clicking on the grid, and Guitar Pro will suggest all possible names for that chord.
The scale engine presents a large directory of scales, from the most common to the most exotic, for you to look at and listen to. Whichever scale you select can be shown on the fretboard or keyboard to work as support for you to write your score. The search function also allows you to quickly find out what scale is being used in all or part of the score.
MIDI and Digital Tuners
The digital tuner allows you to tune your guitar by plugging it into the soundcard, or via a microphone. You can also simply tune your guitar by ear, string by string, with the MIDI tuner.
Those work for all possible tunings.
Virtual Fretboard and Keyboard
The virtual fretboard and keyboard are here to help you see the notes from the score, or capture them into it. They can show you the notes of the current beat, as well as the notes of the next beat, of the whole bar or yet again of the scale you have selected. Those are indispensable tools if you are beginning or is you wish to capture notes with the mouse. What better way to get guitar lessons.
All of the tools you need to create and edit scores, right at hand. Quickly and easily capture the notes with the keyboard and its many shortcuts, with the mouse, or yet again with a MIDI instrument.

Based on the classic or jazz styles, you can set 70 different parameters, configure the outlook of your scores exactly as you wish, and get professional-level paper printouts.
Tablature and standard notation
Both types of notation are perfectly synchronized: the notes capture into one get immediately reported into the other.
A MIDI file consistes in a mere description of musical data, which Guitar Pro turns into an actual multitrack tablature. The software calculates and optimizes the position of each note on the fretboard for you to play it as easily as possible. You can also export the tablature as a MIDI file for use in another software.
The ASCII format, or simple text file, was the first format used for the sharing of tablatures. It is so easy to use via a mere text editor that it is still widely used today, in spite of its outdated look. Guitar Pro will let you convert ASCII files into tablatures in one click, to play them or print them out. The reverse option is also possible.
With the WAV Export option, you can convert a Guitar Pro file into an audio file, which you can play or burn onto an audio CD.
Exporting into PNG (image) will let you save your tablatures as big-sized pictures. Those pictures can for instance be integrated into a webpage for wider diffusion, or edited with the appropriate software for pedagogical purposes.
The PDF format is standard when you wish to distribute your scores.
