View Full Version : Guitar Pro 7 upgrade

06-25-2017, 07:14 AM
Just purchased the GP7 upgrade from GP6.
The interface is completely new and is going to take a bit to get to know where everything is. The main thing for me was the chord diagrams. There is a big improvement showing the fret number as you move a chord up the neck. I use GP tabs for teaching and some of my seniors had a hard time reading second and third position chord shapes. For basic users there is not much different, but I am always concerned about support going forward and for $30, it is a reasonable upgrade for software I use frequently.

Thanks for the reminder SU, I received a notification recently about the upgrade but haven't even looked at updating my software as yet. Al Wood did a quick review here http://ukulelehunt.com/2017/04/12/guitar-pro-7-review/

Thanks for the review. I saw that there is a new version, and didn't know if I should upgrade.

After watching this review, I might just wait a while.

Yea I upgraded, unfortunately way too many little annoyances, I thought the days of using you customers as testers was over, but no not with this. Thankfully, on a Mac, the upgrade doesn't delete version 6 so I will keep using 6 until 7 has had a few bug fix releases.
