Great tool, but Poor Control Over Notations
I only gave it 2 stars; because, it is messy looking when you print it out or email it.
I own it and I love it for the general ease of use and layout. It is very inexpensive. Honestly, it is very easy to use, and it works and sounds good.
However, if you are looking to use it to print or export the Standard and TAB notation for any media, it probably won't meet your expectations. The problem is that a majority of the characters' font/size are controlled globally, so you can not make individual changes. If you are using 8th note triplets or faster and/or there are a lot of sharp, flat, or natural symbols, then it will be un-readable. Because all of the symbols will be smushed together or you will have to reduce to a size that is so small, you need a magnifing glass to see it (I have 20/20 vision).
I still like it, but I am looking for an alternative that will load GP6 files to do my final touches for my guitar students.
There are other issues with it that make editing tedious and take a long time:
1. You must mouse click and use the arrow keys to input fingering
2. You must use hot keys and arrow keys to input Pick strokes
There are other issues that restrict your ability to customize the look:
1. If you use a combo Staff, fingering and Pickstrokes will be attached to Standard Staff and not TAB Staff.
2. You can only save as .GPX
3.Export as: GP5, ASCII, MIDI, Music XLM, WAV, PNG, and PDF
4. Import as: ASCII, MIDI, Music XLM, PowerTab, TablEdit
There are other issues, but I can't think of them all. Consider this when you choose. When they fix these issues, it will be my number one choice.
