Guitar Pro 6.0

What is Guitar Pro?

Guitar Pro is a multitrack editor of guitar and bass tablature and musical scores, possessing a built-in MIDI-editor, a plotter of chords, a player, a metronome and other tools for guitarists and musicians. It has versions for Windows, Mac OS X (Intel processors only), and Linux and is written by the French company Arobas Music. Files composed using Guitar Pro are recorded in the GPX, GP5, GP4 and GP3 format, corresponding to versions 6, 5, 4, and 3 of the software. These file formats lack backwards compatibility, and opening them in an older version of Guitar Pro prompts the user to upgrade their software to the respective version. These tab files are available for free on several websites, including songs of both underground and popular bands. However, copyright issues raised by the Music Publishers' Association (MPA) pressured some of these sites to close.


A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software installer includes 42 files and is usually about 3.61 MB (3,781,712 bytes). GPUpdater.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
