What is a GP4 file?

A GP4 file is a tablature (tab) file created by Guitar Pro 4 or exported by Guitar Pro 5. It contains a guitar, bass, or banjo tab in the Guitar Pro 4 (GP4) file format. GP4 files do not store actual audio data; they contain musical notes and instruments simulated by the Guitar Pro engine.

Arobas Music Guitar Pro is a multitrack guitar composition and accompaniment program. It includes tab editing tools and enables you to convert tabs to several audio and document formats.

Each version of Guitar Pro saves tabs as a file type corresponding with the software version. For example, Guitar Pro 4 saves tabs as GP4 files and Guitar Pro 3 saves tabs as .GP3 files. Although Guitar Pro replaces file types with each new version, the software still supports previous Guitar Pro file types.

NOTE: Arobas Music originally developed Guitar Pro as a tablature editor for Windows. However, it expanded the software to Mac OS X in July 2006.
