Im not even going to get into how worthless arobas music is for refusing to help me in any way regarding guitar pro 5.
so heres my dilemma
since i love writing on guitar pro i like to listen to it in my car but you need to convert it to mp3. Ive been using a program called "direct midi to mp3 converter" and its never been a problem, however since i upgraded to the most recent version of guitar pro five i cant get it to convert without the rse. I dont want the rse i just want the standard guitar pro sounds. I was able to find an older version of midi to mp3 converter that stopped doing the rse (why this would have any affect on the guitar pro program i have no idea) but i cant find that version anymore, so im asking how i can get a good sounding midi file to mp3 without rse.
So im actually asking two questions.
1. When i used to do it, it had a way different sound when converting. I will send you a version of that sound because i cant even replicate it again, even when i was successfully able to stop getting rse mp3 conversions. I would really like to know how to get this sound again
I'm not terribly familiar with the program, but here is my guess: the newer/different software is mapping the file to a different MIDI instrument when it creates the audio file. MIDI is essentially a set of instructions for a tone generator, and most computers have a fairly primitive MIDI synthesizer (drums, piano, strings, guitar, etc), which is what you're hearing in that video.
Unless the MIDI-to-mp3 software is a complete lemon, it should let you change the "instrument" that is used to create the audio file.

As far as I remember, GP5 let's you export straight to mp3. If not, definitely to .wav, which you can convert to mp3 from there, and as long as you set the instruments to have RSE off, even when it's activated, you should be able to export it with the MIDI sounds.
