Are you using GP5?
I'm having a problem using the play looped/speed training option. The "simple loop" button is selected. After the last bar plays there is a delay before it starts the first bar. This does not happen on every loop. It seems to happen more often than not.
I also have problems with songs getting "out of time" when they have lot of tracks. This happens without the loop option.
My computer is an AMD Athlon(tm)XP 1800+ 1.53GHz, 256 MB of RAM. I'm also using the motherboard's on-board sound. Any other GP5 users have this problem?

Same here. Strangely enough, GP4 was better at this. My only advice is to simply copy and paste the riff, lick, whatever, or put a crap-load of repeats in.

Since I asked Guitar Pro to be informed of their evolutions, I was e-mailed the following information from GuitarPro today...
We are proud to announce you that Guitar Pro 5.1 is available.
This new version is now cross-platform Windows / Mac OS X.
This version includes a major evolution of the RSE sound engine (Windows only for the moment).
IMPORTANT: you must download again and install the RSE sound banks if you update to the 5.1 version.
I'm using the 5.1 Beta 2 right now. I'll dowload the generic 5.1 release later tonight. I can tell you that the 5.1 Beta 2 did not take care of issues I have with tracks getting out of time. That only happens when I have more than three or four tracks in a song. If I had something better than a AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1800+ 1.53 GHz it might not be a issue at all.

I haven't run into the time-keeping prolem with GP5 just yet.
One thing I noticed in the program is that it has two methods of playback: either the RSE or MIDI through your soundcard. I suspect that RSE could cause problems on less capable computers. You could try switching RSE off from the sound menu to see if that helps.

Switching off RSE does solve the problem. However, I like to use GP5 to create drum/bass backing tracks. That Realistic Sound Engine (RSE) would work great for that if it did not get out of time.
If I only use 2 tracks and make sure my PC is doing nothing else I can get the RSE to work without timing issues.
Someone tell my wife I need a new PC! Ha Ha :lol:
