GP8 - Can I use my guitar to edit tracks in Guitar Pro 8?


This option is only possible using the MIDI capture feature.

Please note that you will need a MIDI device for that purpose.

Either a plain MIDI instrument such as the Jamstik guitar, You Rock guitar, etc...

Or you can also use a MIDI controller as an interface between your guitar and your computer.

Once you have plugged/connected your MIDI peripheral you can select it in Guitar Pro 7.6 from the:

  • File > Preferences > Audio/MIDI menu (Windows)
  • Guitar Pro 8 > Preferences > Audio/MIDI menu (macOS)


Enable the MIDI capture directly from the Sound menu. 

Please note it is not a real time capture though, the edition is made beat by beat. 

This applies for MIDI keyboard as well.
