Guitar Pro is useful tool for guitarists who want to tab their own music, learn new songs or write their own music. The program can emulate virtually any musical technique, including a fade out at the end of the song. This is a fairly straightforward process in Guitar Pro 6 (for which the program's interface had been significantly updated), but with older Guitar Pro programs, it is slightly confusing.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


    Guitar Pro 6

  1. 1

    Open Guitar Pro 6, click the folder icon at the top of the left portion of the screen and open the song to which you would like to add the fade out.

  2. 2

    Find the section of the song that you would like to fade out on the first track. Click at the beginning of this section and drag the box that appears across the entire portion of the song that you would like to fade out.

  3. 3

    Click the note button at the top left hand of the Guitar Pro 6 window directly below the gp6 logo.

  4. 4

    Click on the symbol that looks like two lines converging to a point on the right (the decrescendo symbol). This will make that track fade out. Repeat this process for the other tracks if you would like a complete fade out.

    Older Editions

  1. 1

    Open your version of Guitar Pro, and click on the "File" button. Find the song you would like to edit and open it.

  2. 2

    Locate the portion of the song that you would like to fade out. Click on the beginning of the measure at which you would like to begin the fade out.

  3. 3

    Click the "Note" button at the top of the screen, and choose "Mix Table" from the menu that appears. Click the "Volume" box and lower the volume of the track by one degree. Click "OK" to put this change into effect.

  4. 4

    Repeat the process every so often (every two beats or every measure depending on how quickly you would like to fade out) until the volume reaches zero. If you aren't happy with the results, experiment with different time intervals or start your fade at a different point in the song.

Tips and warnings

  • If something sounds odd, experiment with placing the volume drops at different places. Because there is no specific fade out function in older versions of Guitar Pro, it may take a bit or trial and error to get this forced fade out to sound just right, especially if you have the instruments at different volume levels throughout the body of the song.
