In Topic: PDF File To Guitar Pro

07 April 2011 - 06:20 AM

Be aware that it only works with PDF files that were generated with a notation editor such as GP, Finale, TablEdit, etc. I believe the PDFs need to have the notation font embedded in the PDF. It does not work if the PDF is created from scanned sheet music.

If it creates a MIDI, it should work for TUX or any notation program that imports MIDI.

There is a series of blues lessons on YouTube done by Keith Wyatt. Towards the end he gets into blues improv. They are very well done.

In GuitarPro 5, you can add two voices to a staff. You have to switch to the appropriate voice before entering notes. The upper voice in GP5 is called "Lead" and the lower voice is called "Bass". There is a "Voices" item in the "Edit" menu and also buttons in the tool bar for switching between the two voices.

To add notes of different durations at the same point in a measure, they must be entered in different voices.

In Topic: Guitar Pro or Finale Songwriter?

KJ,

TablEdit and GP5 both export MusicXML to varying degrees of accuracy. About a year and a half ago I was trying to establish some MusicXML standards with the developer, but it seemed to fall on deaf ears and eyes. It seems "Recordaire" is primarily concerned with Finale and Sibelius for MusicXML. It is a great concept, but falls short in actual practice, mostly related to how the DTDs are handled differently at the application level. At that time it did not have a full compliment of DTDs for handling guitar and tablature notation. Here is a link to a PDF of the standards I was trying to establish. There was almost no interest to what I had done.

To save MusicXML in TablEdit, do a normal save, but change the file type to MusicXML.

Both programs support multiple voices. GP5 limits you to two voices per staff, while with TablEdit you can shape the notes into as many voices as you want. Of course the max limit is probably three.

I don't know anything about Finale Songwriter, but in GuitarPro 5, you can add two voices to a staff. You have to switch to the appropriate voice before entering notes. The upper voice in GP5 is called "Lead" and the lower voice is called "Bass". There is a "Voices" item in the "Edit" menu and also buttons in the tool bar for switching between the two voices.

What export capability are you looking for that TablEdit doesn't have? You will probably find it is the most versatile of the three programs for entering multiple voice music. I often have three voices in one staff.
