Tablatures for Mac OS X
Composing music with Tablatures
is a tablature editor for Mac OS X.
Tablatures is compatible with the popular PowerTab, a well-known
and widely adopted tablature editor for Windows systems.
Thus you can share your music even with those members of your band
that don't own a Mac! Moreover, you can easily find thousands of
song transcriptions in this format on the net. Tablatures can
also import most GuitarPro 3-5 tabs and (since v2.6) GuitarPro 6 tabs
in the .gpx format.
The tabs you create can be exported in MIDI format and during playback you can follow the
tab on screen to make it easier to learn tracks.
