Thumbs up Powertabs on Metaltabs?

I was just wondering if there's any chance that we could start archiving Powertabs. Powertabs are the best possible quailty tabs on the net. If you're not familiar with the powertab system, check it out at http://www.power-tab.net/ The tabs look exactly like authentic tabs and you can even listen to them play! It's amazing. In fact I've almost given up on transcribing songs in plain text as they are pathetic in comparision. Powertab leaves no room for error. The tab is either right or wrong. I strongly recommend that every one that tabs look in this this revolutionary new program. This is the future of tabbing.

No, guitar-pro is much better quality. Especially sound wise. But you have to buy the software. Powertab, on the other hand is free, which makes it better in the long run because more people can access it. Guitar-pro is awesome by the way. Thanks.

Yeah, I guess. But I just downloaded Guitarpro and the tabs look like shit! I think I like powertab better in every aspect except sound quality. Powertab file printout look exactely like authentic tablature. Guitarpro looks like some generic wannabe guitar tab. I don't see how they can get off charging $54 for that thing

Yes it does. Plus an array of other features and about a hundred effects. I attached a powertab that I did for Hypocrisy Rosswell 47. You should download powertab and take listen. I transcribed it for a Seven string too.

File Type: zip tab-hypocrisy-rosswell47.zip (2.3 KB, 240 views)

Yeah, it is very hard at first but just like with anything esle, once you learn it, it becomes easy. It's also a great tool to learn the technical details in musical transcription.

I'll think about adding the new format. But I'm afraid this won't happen very soon...

can you unzip something without winzip or any program of the kind?
because the powertab program is a zip, and i can't read it.

your probably thinking of a pair of DOS-based programs, PKZip and PKUnzip...

I'm not sure they'll work with Winzipped files though, but it's worth a shot.
