TabView makes it possible to view and print PowerTab and Guitar Pro tablatures with your Mac.
PowerTab and Guitar Pro are well-known and widely adopted file formats for tablatures and thousands of transcriptions in these formats are available on the net. TabView is thus an essential tool for guitar players wishing to learn new songs as well for trainers.
TabView can export tablatures in MIDI format for playback or use in other applications (for instance, GarageBand).
While you're practicing a song, you can follow the playback on screen, loop over selected parts or slow the tempo down.
Create beautiful prints of the tablature: you don't need to stay in front of your monitor to play along your favorite song.
View both the standard notation and tablature, only the tablature or only the standard notation: whatever you prefer, it's possible!
NOTE: TabView is not an editor. If you need to edit or create tabs, you might want to look at Tablatures, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tablatures/id412028643
If you're left-handed and prefer to see flipped chord diagrams, there's a new option for you in the preferences
Ratings and Reviews
What is this application?
It's a waste of money. There is literally no information on it about how to get the "powertabs". Thought you could download any tab from this application? It doesn't work like that. It's a senseless inconsiderate waste of my time and money.
This Application WORKS
This app works, you just have to use your head a little. Once you download it and open it, it gives you the option to open a file just like a word document. If you have downloaded power tab(s) you can select them from this menu. The app is very simple and beginner friendly. You can playback tabs, playback a selection of a tab, and read power tabs.
Not what expected
Thought this was a way for me to put music down in tab view. Instead I can only download music (which I can't find) into this application. The web sites recommended to do this are cumbersome and all I have been able to find is in text form and will not import into this app. Should have purchased Reflow instead. Don't know if I will have a use for this.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
