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.

Power Tab Editor

To whom it may concern:
I have been using the Power Tab Editor for the past few months, and am extremely impressed by the capabilities of this free software. Brad Larson is an innovator who has obviously taken much of his well thought time to offer one of the best notation systems specifically for Guitarists. In addition to its abilities, i would like to also mention that it has been very beneficial as a learning tool as well. Currently i am utilizing the program for a site on one of the best guitar wizards of today "John Petrucci." Finally, i could not say enough "good" about this program. Thank You Brad Larson!!!!!!

Powertab - Symbols instead of NOTES!

No one seems to know the answer to this problem! Powertab only displays symbols and not musical notes for me! What is the deal here and how do I fix it... and where is Brad Larson's page?!

Jesse

Re: Powertab - Symbols instead of NOTES!

: No one seems to know the answer to this problem! Powertab only displays symbols and not musical notes for me! What is the deal here and how do I fix it... and where is Brad Larson's page?!

: Jesse

When you install PowerTab - it installs a new font which contains the musical notes. If you run the program straight away, the font will not have registered with your system. You should reboot your machine. In my experience, PowerTab has shown proper notes (instead of C's V's M's etc) after rebooting following an installation.

This is a fantastic program - I can't believe there seem to be so few sites supporting the PowerTab format. If I get time - I might put some of my own efforts up.

Hey - I got another bug though... at some stage, the buttons for the MIDI player disappeared, so I have to go through the text menus or remember to push the F5 key top play hear my scores. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program, but the MIDI player control buttons don't reappear - anyone know a fix? Where is the author for this fantastic program?

I know it if u are using powertab v 1.4 ,,
If u use 1.7 i don't..
In 1.4 you just have to install 1.7 instead..

Re: Powertab - Symbols instead of NOTES!

when i installed powertab on win98 the 'symbols instead of notes' problem fixed itself upon reboot.

however now i am installing it on win2000, in otherwords winNT, and the problem doesnt fix itself upon reboot.

symbols instead of notations

I am getting symbols instead of notation in the staff. The Help refers to an obsolete FAQ, so I am not sure where to go. It is happening on all my systems. I am assuming that it is missing a font or something.

Any help?

Re: power tab-problem

>>>STOP. I seriously doubt you need to format your hard drive. Before you do this, try uninstalling and reinstalling the Power Tab application. You can uninstall by going to the control panels and double clicking "Add/Remove Programs". Then install the program like you did when you first downloaded it. Remember that nothing you've done was saved "in the program". Files you save in Power Tab are saved as power tab documents, and won't be removed when you uninstall the application. After you reinstall it, you should be able to open all of your power tab documents with no problem. DEFINITELY, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, DO NOT FORMAT YOUR HARD DRIVE. That's just plain wrong.
-Nicodemus

: : I can't open my power tab program anymore, and I need to I had some importand stuff on there. So if you know something about it that I don't please let me know. Thank you

: Hi Chris.
: You know, the same thing happened to me some time ago. And there's nothing you can do about it. The problem is that you have tried to open a chord file or something, and if you want your Powertab to work again, you'll have to format your harddisk/harddrive. Please remember to to make back-up-copies of your importnant stuff.
