Software Description

Power Tab Editor is a tablature authoring tool for Windows.

Use it to make guitar and bass tab (tablature).

It lets you create tabs with most of the symbols usually found in tablature including chord names, chord diagrams, rhythm slashes, bends, slides, hammer-ons/pull-offs, harmonics and even palm muting.

It's a great application for people who want to learn how to play guitar, and indeed seasoned pros who need to transcribe their own music and/or guitar lessons.

If you are looking to convert Power Tab to Guitar Pro there is no longer any need because Guitar Pro now imports Power Tab.

Although PowerTab is not officially designed to run on Windows Vista, there are a lot of people who use it with no problem, however some people have reported that it won't run on Vista for them.

The FIX for the lost NOTES letters like upper case V instead of note symbols....

Download powertabttf.7z from the bottom of the page at;

http://www.power-tab.net/guitar.php

then extract it, right click on it where you extracted it too (you should save it to a folder in your documents or downloads folder.

at this point make sure you have power tab shut down, not just minimized.

Once extracted you will have a file named;

powertab.ttf

if you right click on that file and choose install, then launch powertab and open a music file, now you should see notes instead of large letters.

Again, the program and the FONT used to draw notation on the staves are ll there at http://www.power-tab.net/guitar.php

Its always best to search for a song name and power tab at the end.

example search google for [imagine power tab] and read the url before clicking to be sure its a safe site to visit.

Enjoy tab tab and retab...I'll be spending a week here at re-tab,,,

TAB

I HAVE BEEN ON THE INTERNET FOR DAYS TRYING TO FIND TAB FOR PAT METHEN'S ACOUTIC CHORD SOLO FROM MORE TRAVELS. IT IS THE LAST SONG ON THE VIDEO. CAN YOU HELP ME.

notation/stave music

i only get randum words when i input the tab,after selecting what note to input and in the music staves such as GVC. when i usualy use this program it shows ass rythen notes how do i change this back to notes rather than words

Re: notation/stave music

The same thing happened to me and i have no idea how to fix it

Tempo change & loop?

I cannot seem to get the BPM to stay changed and would love to loop. Am I missing something?

Thanks!

no sound

I've downloaded the program, but don't hear any sound when playing a song! Suggestiones annyone???

Re: no sound

try hitting the stop button and then hitting the play button. also if you are creating your own song, make sure you have a guiatar picked out and have it playing. pick out a guitar by clicking on the red guitar sumbol button. then click on the first tab that you wrote, then find the "LN" button. make sure guitar 1 is checked. this should get it to start playin. if you have anymore trouble feel free to ask me, im pretty savy with this program

Spams and virus

Hey guys do you now if there are any virus on this program??? please i would like to now :)

rhythm and fill sections

Does anyone know how to add a rhythm and fill section to the staff and tab lines???? thx, Steve

Power Tab on linux

Use wine.
Download the powertab.ttf font and place in the .wine/drive_c/windows/fonts folder from your home folder.
And I am still trying to find the right font for the tabs, if anyone knows that would be awesome.
Also I can't get the midi to work, but I'm sure it's just something in the wine configuration.

How do you download the file?

How do you download the file because I have looked over the whole site and cant find it!

WHERE DO I FIND IT

Re: drum

: WHERE DO I FIND IT

Doesn't Download

It starts downloading but then I click open and says theirs some error. So it wont they me go on it.

Re: Why does the staff show

"Music Notes Not Displaying Correctly - The installer has a tough time on some machines getting the music font installed right (you'll see letters like "W" and "V" where music notes should be). It seems that it's not writing information to the registry that's required for the font to work right. The easiest way to get this to work properly is the old-fashioned/manual way. Goto the c:\windows\font directory, make a copy of the powertab.ttf font, store it somewhere (like the desktop), then delete the powertab font from the fonts directory. Now throw the copied font back into the fonts directory. It should automatically install the font properly on your machine."

I stole that explanation from this site: http://www.power-tab.net/getarticle.php?id=5
It works, so why not.

slowing down

all i wanna know is how do u slow down the song? i cant figure it out...

Re: bug found

: I too noticed this when I first started using Powertab. Don't worry too much about it, coz when you print the tab, it prints an 8 not a 0. At least it does for me.

Printing-Problem

Hello, when I print tabulatures, the file information is not in the middle of the tabulatures, so that you can`t see all the text. I think, the reason is that the tabulature ends by 8 and the format ends at 9,75. But I can`t change it. Can you help me? B. Schmitz

looking for a certain tab

hey if anyone has or knows where i can find "Rock Around The Clock" that I can also use for keyboard can you reply to this and tell me? thanks heaps

why not!

Why not make a Power Tab Software that can be downloaded to floppy disks cause I dont have Internet connection.

good software

PowerTab Editor is a good software, but don't miss to take a look at tabplayer at www.simoneperandini.com/tabplayer.htm for a slightly different approach to the tab thing. tabplayer is free, so you may want to have it however.
=)
Have fun
