PowerTab click speed

Does anyone know if it is possible to 'double' the metronome speed whilst keeping the tempo the same?

For example, I am transcribing a thrash song at a 130bpm but the drums the band recorded have a feel of 260bpm.

I've tried setting the tempo at 260 and halving all the note values, but I'm used to notes having their proper note values (gallops being 16th notes not 8th notes, for example) and this obviously doubles the number of bars required for a measure.

The song is correct at 130 but you really need the click to be doubled up to keep count, as they did in the song.

Ideas? I've messed about with the tempo box but everything I've done has either made the riffs twice as fast or made no difference at all.

I think the only thing you could do is set the time signature to 8/8 (assuming you're in 4/4) and that way you can double the metronome clicks.
