People didn't use GP for sound design, they used it as an easy way to compose and construct ideas. So taking a simple to use product and making it cumbersome to use is a level of screw up that is actually impressive to me.

I have guitar pro 7, and while it's pretty cool and definitely better than 6, it just serves no purpose for me 12 years later. The work flow is better than 6 for sure, but it is still just too heavy and glitchy, too many things that it does not need and makes it bloated. Gp5 was light weight, took 1 minute to install. You got your ideas down quickly, or you branched out and made drafts for songs. There is so much in 7 that does not need to be there and defeats the purpose.
