Anyone know where to get GP5?

Or is there a way of using GP6 Lite files in EOF?

I just tried a test, I took a tab I made in GP6 Lite, and chucked into GoPlayalong. And the resulting xml cant be opened in the EOF

That's because EOF doesn't support GPX (the format used in Guitar Pro 6) files. I used to recommend WebTabPlayer to convert it to GP5 format (something the free version of GP6 won't do), but that site has been broken for months now (it corrupts GP files). The development version of Tux Guitar supposedly can open and convert GPX files, but you'd have to compile it yourself since they haven't uploaded a binary for it in a long time.

If you download the tab in GP5 format, the file is corrupted and won't open in Guitar pro 5 or Tuxguitar. I tried it again before posting just to make sure.

I uploaded the gpx file and it gave me .gpx.gp5 in return.

Also I downloaded tuxguitar, so thats like Guitar Pro I take it. But it wont read the .gpx files either

EOF tries to repair errors in Webtabplayer's Guitar Pro files, but sometimes they can't be easily repaired. I imagine you'll find that .gpx.gp5 file won't open in other tab programs.

You can export a .gp5 file in Guitar Pro 6.

$60 new or $30 to upgrade. Considering what we can do, it is a bargain.

Actually it can, but not with the version that is available for download. There's http://sourceforge.n...tuxguitar-fork/ which has gpx plugin for download, not sure if it works. I'll try to compile whole TuxGuitar for Windows but I don't promise anything. edit: Here you go https://www.dropbox....s-x86.r1104.zip but it apparently requires Java to be installed

In case you haven't seen that one:

See guitarpro-viewer-1.1.zip (alphaTab.js)

Looks like it's only available in Javascript or .NET, I wouldn't know where to start to try to integrate it with EOF.

What would EOF use it for though? Leveraging either the GPX import of the tablature printing features would require EOF to translate between its own memory structures for an arrangement and those of guitarpro-printer, which I would expect would still be a big undertaking since EOF doesn't even store notes in a strict format based on measures.

@raynebc

Short code to decompress .gpx files. In result, you'll find a xml file
