Very nice tool. Via the fluidsynth plugin, I am able to have a very realistic sound when playing guitar pro files. Quite easy to use and a lot of possibility (exporting track into ardour / qtractor; playing along, etc...).
There have been lots of problems getting the web launch version to launch. It works a couple days then it doesn't work for a week or more. Also cannot get to the web site or any portion of it, BUT the search engines find all the pages. I am not sure if they are just cached files or if they are fresh crawls... It is becoming far more hassle to even think about using it, since I run w7 x64 on the machine I do my music with. We need a good 64 bit win7 compatible version of TG...... And a dependable web launch version. Or mirror site to improve up time.
Please return simple and easy mixer version 1.2. This mixer just spoils the entire program. Terribly uncomfortable to use. I would like to have the same button for solo and mute for each track at the bottom of the program window. I would also like to be able to mount my sf files through the program interface.
Since tuxguitar-gpx pluggin is now supported by default, we can open .gpx tabs, but the metronome and the countdown for the metronome is not working with these .gpx tabs (it works well with .gp5) Please fix this, because there is nowhere to convert them to GP5 now. Pleaase !
Greate guitar tab editor and player!
Excellent, only really useful thing missing is an option to to apply parameters such as loudness to groups of notes / entire bars as well as individual notes.
Pro: Super easy to pick up and use. Surprisingly powerful. Cons: Some non-functional features. The TAB entry method felt very comfortable for me (a new user of such software) to pick up. The player is about as good as most MIDI players, which is to say its not going to fool most listeners that it is such, but its more than passable to deliver ideas and preview your work. Editing note dynamics (forte, mezzoforte, etc) is a pain due to lack of ability to edit more than one note. Biggest gripe is that the export features don't work well: the musicXML files it exports may generate errors in other notation software which explains the files aren't valid musicXML files. They import incorrectly when this happens as well. The same or similar results may occur with MIDI files exported using Tuxguitar.
