Will it work?
« on: October 25, 2011, 10:21:30 pm »
My 6-7 year old PC has finally give in. I can just about get it to start up. I fear that in the comming weeks or even days it will final give in completly. I've been running Guitar Pro softwear on it for about 3 years and not only is it where i've learned most of my stuff, i've also been writing my own compositions on it. Im afraid that i will now lose all of this valuable data.
So i've been thinking about getting an Apple Mac for Christmas or my birthday, but im not sure if it will run Guitar Pro or any tab softwear that i can download files and save my own. I want the Mac for Garage Band aswell. So if Guitar Pro doesnt run on a Mac do i go for it or Garage Band?
Any help?

You can run emulation software on a Mac to run PC apps.

Bootcamp and Parallels.

You could certainly run Tuxguitar on a Mac and import your Guitarpro files

Tuxguitar is quite as intuative to use as Guitarpro but is just as good ..... and it's free!
Fender CP 50s Strat, CP Baja Tele & USA '89 Plus Deluxe Strat, Rees Custom, Schector PT, G&L Trib. ASAT S/H & Legacy, G&L USA ASAT, Godin Summit, Vintage V100, PRS SE II &  Custom S/H Soapbar, Blackstar HT5, Fender Superchamp, Laney Cub10, Egnator Tweaker

This is by far the best option. Gone are the days when Mac/Windows stuff was not compatible. There is always an option now!

This is true, but you need to install windows as well, so hard drive space is used up. When I have used emulation software it has on occasion been painfully slow!

I've heard good reviews about Tuxguitar but i've still remained faithfull to GP.
Hard drive space is important for me on a computer so instaling Windows would be a tough call if i think it gonna take up too much space, i'll have to research it further and find the model that i want and its specs
