Guitar Pro vs. Powertab

I have downloaded the guitar pro demo the other day and have been using it and I am not quite sure why $59.00 is worth this product? Powertab is a free download with basically the same features, is there a reason to obtain Guitar Pro?

Yeah there is a reason for getting Guitar pro. I've never used powertab, but I have G-pro and it's awesome. I don't know if they are all right, but like 95% of the songs that I download for it, sound right. It has all the drums,bass, keyboards, and almost whatever instrument you can think of, so it's fun playing along. I don't know how some of the people write the tabs for some of the songs for G-pro, like how the hell did they figure it out? Anyways, I have the full version of G-pro, but I didn't buy it, it's called kazaa.

Guitar pro confuses me. I like being able to see both guitar parts art the same time. I like powertab, even if it doesn't have drum parts.

Powertab is much better to view mainly down to the fact that the indicator can actual keep up with the score.

Powertab owns guitar pro. Guitar pro looks like a mess and powertab is nice and organized.

Guitar pro is nice, but i prefer powertab. If you are specifically asking "Is guitarpro worth $60?" then the answer is no.

Dammit, don't buy it, to anyone that's thinking of buying it. It's not worth it. Just dl the full version. Either that, or you can dl a demo version and it works just fine, except that after 30 days, you get more limitations on what you can do.

Thanks, I was thinking of buying it for shits and giggles but after using this demo for another day or 2, I see no real difference except layout and design, both sound shitty on distortion guitar ( yes I have a sound card ). Free vs. $60, hmmm..... think I'll take the free one!

GP is easier, I downloaded the full version but all the serial numbers I find are blocked for piracy...

I'm not bothered about seeing all the guitar parts at once (I can only play one guitar at a time anyway) but, as john said, It cant keep up properly if the song has moderate/fast trem picking.

I prefer guitar pro, it's much easier to use. You can turn off the notation and view the rhytm under the tab lines. It has an unlimited number of tracks, it's easier to play what is tabbed. About the price : it certainly doesn't deserve buying but it's not so hard to find a full version and a serial

Yeah, I had the same problem at first with the ID key thing. My friend dl a CD key generator or whatever it's called, and he gave me a ID.

Well you can see both guitars play at the same time while guitar pro you have to click on each instrument. Plus you can see the score A LOT better. Powertabs indicator keeps up with the notes so I know what note is being played while guitar pro's indicator skips notes.
