I've recently started using Guitar Pro 7 to tab out songs and when I play the tab via the RSE (Realistic Sound Engine) the playback is slightly sharp. I'd guess it's about 15 cents off from standard G tuning. It appears the software only allows tuning adjustments in half steps, there's no way to dial down to 1 cent increments. Anyone else experienced this? If so, what's the remedy???
If you can't fix the software, how about tuning the banjo down or up to match it?
Years ago I had a Marantz recorder that was sharp like that and I just tuned my banjo to whatever worked and played along.

I did a websearch on this and you are not the only one to complain. One cause seems to be particular instrument samples. Do you see tje same shift on different instruments?
A different possible cause:
Besides a setting error, an incorrect sampling rate is an interesting possibility. How are you playing things back?
It would probably be good to contact the makers with specifics.
Contacted the software developer...no plans to fix the sound playback. However, they have a list of "wishes" for improvements that include 1 cent adjustments in tuning.
Yes @Texasbanjo , will have to tune the banjo to the software for now. It's great software, it's a shame it has this deficiency....
