comment Hardware emulation vs Software emulation during guitar recording
Maybe you should try with another guitar? Are you able to get a sound you like in a guitar store ? (with another guitar / amp). You should experiment in a store to see if it's the amp (maybe you don't like how it sounds) or the guitar. If it's the guitar, consider checking your guitar setup (intonation...), changing the strings brand (cheap & might be effective) or changing the pickups (they have a HUGE impact on the sound).

comment Line6 pod hd500x or a different processor?
And my thoughts (off topic) : I own one (a HD500 version) since its release, works well, I use it for recording (through USB, in Reaper) and live (in the FX loop of an amp) with a Variax and only have minor complaints (like it's lacking a power switch ^^). To my knowledge there are not so many products with all those feature for that price tag and this one is by far the most popular.

comment Travelling with electric violin under revised airport security rules
This is why I added "regarding this specific safety rule change", there might be A LOT of other security rules that would prevent you from doing that (I should probably add that to my answer...) but I don't really know all the rules, I never travelled to the US so I don't know how hard it is to get on those planes with any hand luggage :).

comment What indicators enable consumers to identify counterfeit guitars?
"do the note on each fret is correct" => it may just be a setup issue (intonation), not a inherent problem with the guitar, so might hard to use as criteria.

comment Pushing a tube amp : better use the channel volume or master volume?
It does not directly answer the question though, but it does answer the other one I asked on the same matter. This question was more about what is more efficient for pushing the tubes : master or channel (but I agree that with an attenuator, this is less an issue).

comment Why are there many guitarists, but only one drummer in a band?
Not true, some bands have several drummers, even in "rock" like Combichrist or Slipknot, but you'll notice that there is often a "standard" drummer (snare, cymbals, kick) and additional percutionnists (that often play bassy drums like toms).

comment Decrease bpm and practice
Please note that GP has a "speed training" tool that can repeat a lick or song and speed up by a few BPM each iteration. And you should use it !

comment Decrease bpm and practice
@Dominic Guitar Pro has no issue with pitch shifting due to slow tempo as it's not a "audio" that is slowed, it's just samples that are played longer, so no compensation is needed. I never tried extreme values but never noticed any issues with tempo changes.

comment Metronome markings vs. tempo markings (BPM vs. words)
This is a option of Guitar Pro, you can choose to display the "speed name" or not with the tempo. I'm not sure where you set that though, maybe in the stylesheet (F7). I though you would set this name manually but as you noticed, it seems that GP does it automatically.
