Slowing Tempo in Guitar Pro

Recommended Posts

This isn't about gear but about software.  We'll throw it in here.

Any Guitar Pro experts on here?  I rarely use Guitar Pro.  I typically slow down songs either by loading it in my Boss EBand JS-10 (most often) or occasionally with Song Surgeon.  But I've come upon an occasion to use it and, it's been so long since I have, I've forgotten a lot about how to use it!

I know that you can slow down songs or loops with the pop-up menu in the lower right corner.  But that only gives one choices in 10% increments, 70%, 80%, 90%, etc.    What if one wants to slow this down in different increments?  Say, 95%?  Is there a way to do that?

In Version 7, use the custom values option on the relative speed menu.

Guys, Sorry for the delayed response thanking you for the suggestions.  @Blue Dog, what I am looking for is a way to change the tempo as a percentage.  Your way will certainly work.  But I am working a lick which is at 140 bpm.  I wanted to work it at 88%, 92%, 96%, then, if I ever get there!, 100%  I can put the tempo in at 128, 132, 136 and 140 bpm, etc.  But I was just wondering if there is an easy way to change it as a percentage.

@Ken5035, I still have Version 6.  I don't find anything resembling a "custom values" option.  Maybe I should upgrade but,  as I said in my op, I just rarely use GP.

Thanks again.

The way I do it in Guitar Pro 6 is with the Speed Trainer option. I never found a better option and I always thought it was strange that you can't just enter a speed percentage.

Go in the Sound menu, then Play in loops / Speed Trainer (or press F9).

The option window pops up only when you activate it, so if it's already checked you'll have to select it twice.

From there enter the same value in From and to, although the 2nd value only takes effects when it repeats from the beginning. You cannot put 0 repeat, so it will start over at the end.

Hope this helps!

@guitarben, I haven't had a chance to look at this yet.  I'm sure this is close to what I want to do.  Thank you.

I can see where that speed trainer could be very useful.  I just used it for the first time.  But rather than having to keep stopping and resetting the speed, just set the incremental increases and go!   I set it for 3x at each speed and increases of 5% and it worked fairly well.  I can see my using this more.

Not mentioned so I will … In the menu bar, just right of center, is the tempo.  In this example a quarter note = 112 BPM.  Clicking on this pulls up the Automation Editor where one finds that the BPM can be changed in one beat increments.
