Im a long time Guitar Pro user (since version 4) on Windows (XP, Vista 7) and OSX.
Before the change to OSX 10.7 it was running ok at best. After Lion it has become a nightmare of a software.
It will not recognize the sound card, regardless of it being the build-n card or any external interface, such as MOTU 896 MkIII, AVID Eleven Rack, and forget Axe-Fx 2 for this since the software only plays nice at 44.1 kHz sample rate.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The basic idea of it as a transcription app is sound. It worked great up to version 5. There are some weird short comings like midi export does not include pitch bends you draw into the tab, or print outs insist on having dynamics marks. But the ingest issue is that not only does the current version not want to run on Lion even though the developer claims its Lion compatible, even worse their support is beyond lame. Their standard question to the same recurring problem by numerous customers is have you switched your audio deice to 44.1 kHz.

OVERALL OPINION

If they get around to making it run stable again it will be ok. Not great! Before the issue with Lion it had a tendency to play back at the wrong pitch (sample rate issue). Therefore being completely unusable as a play along unless you changed the tuning of the program.

My suggestion for any one looking at transcription software would be to look into the programs notion music offers.
Also the display options and fonts are nothing you would expect from a transcription software. I've dabbled in Sibelius which looks amazing, and am used to do my wok in Finale which also looks great and the printed end results are not comparable.I just downloaded the den for Notion and that seems to do everything I need in the way I do, and look the way it should. Unlike this disappointment of a software.
