Hi,

It would be nice if you could import your recorded tracks intro guitar pro as instruments.
Does anybody know if it's possible?

I have attempted this unsuccessfully.

What you need to do:

1: Convert your audio track to midi track in your DAW (skip this step if you are exporting a midi track)

2: Export the midi track as a midi file

3: Import midi file to Guitar Pro. This is the step that fails for me, although Guitar Pro has support for this - I still got an error. I contacted their support but no reply.

If I understand correctly this works only as a "midi".
I wanted to import audio track that is recorded, for example a guitar.
It would be useful to compare my playing to the guitar pro guitar.

And also it would be useful and fun to use the real instruments played in guitar pro with the other instruments that I don't play, like drums for example.

Exactly, you first need to convert the guitar track you recorded to midi. I think most new DAWs (recording softwares) support this, but the first step would be to check if your software has this option. I use Logic pro X btw!

Ok - for this purpose, the best option is to learn about software instrument plugins. For example you could use a plugin called EZ drummer to add drums to you guitar tracks.

The idea is to record your guitar in a DAW (Reaper, cubase etc) and then program drums using a plugin such as EZ drummer.

I usually do my recordings like this:
I use audacity for recording:
1. When recording a lesson on guitar master class
- I press record on audacity,
- Press play on the backing track for the lesson and then
- I start playing
- And the result is: in audacity I will have my guitar recorded on the backing track.

At the same time I will record video.
Then I will mix the audio from audacity with the video.

2. When I want to create a backing track:
I will export a guitar pro file with the instruments that I don't play, for example: Drums, Bass, Keyboards
Then I will record Rhythm Guitar and Lead guitar.

Then I will use audacity to mix the guitar pro file with my recorded instruments and hear I have to be very careful to mix them at the perfect seconds.

I've been reading this and it seems like it's time to make the leap from audacity and start using a real daw like REAPER. It's free to download. It's a much more powerful solution and will let you do your recording/mixing/mastering in one place using a standardized tool (reaper) that lots of other people use as well. I'm a Mac guy so I use LOGIC X but lots of mac guys are using reaper.

For creating backing tracks, reaper can give you much better results but you will need something like EZ Drummer or something similar for the Drums. You can also get EZ bass for bass tracks or just get an actual bass for recording bass tracks.

Something like EZ MIX even does guitar amps/fx and works also for vocals, and just about every instrument in terms of adding fx to instruments. It also has settings to enhance the sound of drum tracks like EZ drummer and E bass smile.gif

Needless to say none of it is free, but all of it is very useful.
