The iReal Pro is similar to the Ultimate Guitar app, but it's geared more towards jazz players, and it has some very powerful features that the Ultimate Guitar app does not have. A bit of a learning curve, but once you get used to it and know all the features – it's a pleasure to use.
Guitar Pro has always been an invaluable tool for my guitar learning. First as a tool to not only read tabs but actually hear them – it’s incredible how the wrong tempo/phrasing can transform a tab for a newbie into a completely unintelligeble song. Lately I’ve been using it to tab down my own compositions, mostly riffs.
Although Guitar Pro 6 was a step back from GP5 in my opinion – a new binary file format, a more bloated feeling and megazillions of bytes of midi sounds to download – it is still my tool of choice.
The only thing I’ve really missed is a tab notation tool for my iPhone. Agile has the excellent tab player Tab Toolkit, which is one of my most used apps. I’ve previously tried Progression, which is really nice – but it’s only available for the iPad, which I rarely carry around, and it won’t save to Guitar Pro format. The Guitar Pro file format has really become the industry standard for rich tabs (i.e. multi-track will note lengths, tempo etc. – not just text files).

IRig Pro I/O is the next generation of the iRig Pro — the first mobile interface for connecting all of your studio gear to your iPhone, iPad. This my review of GP for iOS.Download app here: me:Twitter: http://forrst.com/. Learn how to play your favorite songs with Ultimate Guitar huge database. Guitar, guitar pro, bass, drum tabs and chords with online tab player. Guitar Pro is a multitrack user interface with features made to help with writing tab more so than other instruments. All GP and PT files are available for download on-site, and they can be opened.
Finally, Arobas – makers of Guitar Pro – have released an iOS version of their software. And best of all, it has editing capabilities! I couldn’t be happier! The iPhone has its limits when it comes to input and screen size, but in just a couple of minutes I hade tabbed down my first riff. You can easily export your files to GPX format into the program itself for playback, transfer to your computer via a browser or Itunes. You can also email them as GPX or PDF.
I’ve only tried Guitar Pro on the iPhone, but it’s a universal app that works on the iPad as well. This is a real contender for my main tab app. It has multitrack support and built-in loop functionality for practicing. With the editing functionality it’s pretty much the perfect mobile songwriting tool together with SoundCloud (that I use to record hummed riffs as soon as I think of them). And at €5.99 it’s a steal.
7.5.5 (build 1844)
|Operating system||Microsoft Windows, macOS|
Guitar Pro is a multitrack editor of guitar and basstablature and musical scores, possessing a built-in MIDI-editor, a plotter of chords, a player, a metronome and other tools for musicians. It has versions for Windows and Mac OS X (Intel processors only) and is written by the French company Arobas Music.
There have been five popular public major releases of the software: versions 3–7. Guitar Pro was initially designed as a tablature editor, but has since evolved into a full-fledged score writer including support for many musical instruments other than guitar.
Until it reached version 4, the software was only available for Microsoft Windows. Later, Guitar Pro 5 (released November 2005) undertook a year-long porting effort and Guitar Pro 5 for the Mac OS X was released in July 2006. On April 5, 2010, Guitar Pro 6, a completely redesigned version, was released. This version also supports Linux, with 32-bit Ubuntu being the officially supported distribution.
On February 6, 2011, the first ever portable release of Guitar Pro (version 6) was made available on the App Store for support with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad running iOS 3.0 or later. An Android version was released on December 17, 2014.
In 2011, a version was made to work with the Fretlight guitar called Guitar Pro 6 Fretlight Ready. The tablature notes being played in Guitar Pro 6 Fretlight Ready show up on the Fretlight guitar's LEDs which are encased within the guitar's fretboard to teach you the song.
In April 2017, Guitar Pro 7 was officially released with new features and dropped Linux support.
The software makes use of multiple instrument tracks which follow standard staff notation, but also shows the notes on tablature notation. It gives the musician visual access to keys (banjos, drumkits, etc.) for the song to be composed, and allows live previews of the notes to be played at a specified tempo. It allows for certain tracks to be muted and provides dynamic control over the volume, phasing and other aspects of each track. Included in version 4 onwards is a virtual keyboard that allows pianists to add their part to a composition.

Guitar Pro outputs sound by means of a library and/or, as of version 5, the 'Realistic Sound Engine' (RSE) which uses high quality recorded samples for a more realistic playback. By using its live preview feature musicians may play along with the song, following the tablature played in real time.
Files composed using Guitar Pro are recorded in the GP, GPX, GP5, GP4 and GP3 format, corresponding to versions 7, 6, 5, 4, and 3 of the software. These file formats lack forward 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 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.
