# RocksmithToTab

Exports Rocksmith 2014 songs to tablature in GuitarPro 5/6 format (either .gp5 or .gpx).

# Rocksmith 2014 Tab Converter

Exports Rocksmith 2014 arrangements to Guitar Pro tabs (.gp5, .gpx). It parses Rocksmith's .psarc archives and converts any songs found within to tablature. All the Rocksmith techniques are supported and translated, and you get all of the chord diagrams and fingering hints that Rocksmith shows you. It's a great way to figure out specific parts of a song, and Guitar Pro's speed trainer is a very good alternative to the riff repeater. All arrangement types (bass, lead, rhythm) can be exported, either together in a single tab or into separate tabs.

The current version is v1.1. You can download it at FossHub. For installation and usage instructions, please refer to the documentation.

# New release v0.9.6 supports multiple input files

A new release of RocksmithToTab v0.9.6 is available. In this version, it is now possible to specify multiple input files to make it easier to batch convert Rocksmith 2014 DLC.

### Changelog

• Can supply more than one input file to the program, and simple glob style (*) file matching is supported. So you could do RocksmithToTab.exe \path\to\Rocksmith2014\dlc\*.psarc to convert all your dlc content.
• With the parameter --xml, all input files are treated as xml arrangements. Primarily useful during CDLC creation.
• For custom DLCs, the program tries to extract the CDLC author and CDLC version. Both are written in the comments section of the song information in Guitar Pro.
• Fixes a bug in the toolkit that resulted in single note frethand mutes not showing up properly.

# New release v0.9.5.1 with lots of bugfixes

I released RocksmithToTab v0.9.5.1, which is entirely a bugfix result. I encourage you to upgrade to this version, as it will produce much nicer output.

### Changelog

• Fixed bass tunings, so that bass playback should now sound in the right octave.
• Fixed several errors in relation with bends that would produce errors in GP5.
• Updated Toolkit DLL to fix a bug with single note fret hand mutes not showing up.
• Fixed an issue where some silent bars at the end of a track could end up having negative duration, which would screw up the rhythm notation or even lead to an infinite loop.
• Fixed an issue with incorrectly placed ties accidentally hiding notes that should be played.
• In GP5, tracks could accidentally be assigned to a midi channel reserved for drum tracks. Fixed.
• Write text in gp5 files with CP-1252 encoding to fix a problem where files with certain non-ASCII characters could not be loaded in GP5.
• Altered the way slides are implemented in the exporter. This fixes several errors in rhythm duration and should also make the slide display more accurate to what was intended in Rocksmith.
• Fixed some nasty bugs in the rhythm detection that could potentially lead to infinite loops; this might also improve rhythm detection in a few edge cases.
• Fixed a regression in the rhythm detection code that resulted in poor results when dealing with triplet rhythms.

# New release v0.9.3

RocksmithToTab v0.9.3 is out. There are no major new features this time, but a few bugfixes and small usability improvements.

### Changelog

• Fixed a problem with bends that might have confused Guitar Pro 5.
• Fixed a problem where two tracks were accidentally sharing the same volume controls.
• Removed compression from gpx output, resulting in a drastic speedup.
• Introduced section names as text comments.
• Nicer output filename conventions.

# New release v0.9 brings export to Guitar Pro 5!

RocksmithToTab v0.9 is out, and it’s a pretty exciting release! The major new feature is export to the Guitar Pro 5 format, .gp5. This means that all of you who don’t own the current Guitar Pro 6, but only its predecessor, can now use the program to generate compatible tabs from Rocksmith. Also, the gp5 file format has excellent support in TuxGuitar, the free open source alternative to Guitar Pro.

### Changelog

• Added export to the Guitar Pro 5 (.gp5) file format.
• Fixed a bug where some notes were incorrectly sustained into the next bar, even though the bar didn’t begin with a pause.
• Several other minor bugfixes.
