TabView icon


TabView makes it possible to view and print PowerTab tablatures with your Mac.

PowerTab is a well-known and widely adopted tablature editor for Windows systems. You can easily find thousands of song transcriptions in this format on the net.

Following the playback

Improve your playing

Tabs can be exported in MIDI format and during playback you can follow the tab on screen to make it easier to learn tracks.

Looping over a selection

Practice makes it perfect

Play the riffs you want to master over and over again. Start with a slowed-down tempo and soon you’ll be playing at full speed without making mistakes.

View only the tablature notation

Configure your view

Standard notation is important, but perhaps you don’t really care about it: switch to a Tablature Only view, removing some distractions.

If viewing PowerTab files is not enough for your needs, if you wish to be able to edit or create them, you might wish to try Tablatures instead.
