Rhythm slashes are used to notate chords when you don't want to type in bar after bar of them. You should use them when an instrument's part is all or mostly chords. Just select one of the notes in the rhythm slash menu () and click it, the note you selected should appear on top of the staff. You can also insert rests, as shown.

In order to select a chord, click on and do your thing. Then, to make an instrument play the rhythm slash, add a Gtr. In and choose "RS".

For strumming, use the buttons. The 'V' is upstroke, the '|_|' is downstroke. Select the chord you want to specify strumming and click the appropriate button.

Try posting the file that has the rhythm problem. There could be alot of things wrong.

I have a problem. Powertab refuses to play any and all midi that i load on it. i don't know what to do.
#96
Do you have any other programs running that run on midi? That happens to me when I'm running Cakewalk too.

I just want to sleep forever.

k thanks weebl - another question, say i have a great intro, followed by verse and chorus and then i wanna play the intro again, how do i get it to play the intro without actually retabbing it?
Also is their any way that i can play 3 bars of ie. a chorus the same way and then for the final bar play alternate notes without having to type the whole thing out?
OOOO im on tv!!!
#100
I dont understand how to use the alternate ending thing... any chance if when you got 5 minutes u could create a ptab lesson on it weebl? i no u r great with powertab

Also, how can u set something just to carry on repeating throughout a section, so that it doesnt make whatever is in the adjacent staff repeat itself aswell? Ie. my attached file, the solo at the bottom i have had to do it all manually but the problem is that one staff has to wait for the other to catch up. How do you make it so that whichever is ahead will just continue to play?

...ok, i'm trying to figure out how to put in vocals into my powertab scores, i mean, an instrument that will imitate singing

i can put them at the right tones, then put in the words below, it would just make it that much easier for my vocalist to figure out how it's supposed to be sung without us spending a couple of hours getting it down

...and also for screaming, at first i was thinking something like a distorted guitar, but then it just turns out sounding like another instrument, instead of some kind of ghetto-midi-screaming (like what i was expecting)

yep, i have no idea...
#103
There's nothing that sounds that good, but try Ocarina. Some people use Trombone as well.

they both sound really gay . . . . LOL

Sometimes Powertab suddenly goes silent in the middle of a MIDI playback, then sometimes it says something like "MS error - restart program" - is this normal? Also, is there any way to remove the TAB staff (not the score part)?
#106
Well, considering you can only input notes on the TAB part, I doubt you can remove it.

I just want to sleep forever.


#107
Alright guys, I'm finally gettin back into powertab...

I just got one question:
I read the thing aboud drums and whatnot, but I can't find a way to add bass in... I realize you can select a bass guitar, many actually, on the guitar selection screen, but it wont let me use it as a veritable guitar in... so how do i do bass?

Also, once I get bass and drum tabs written, how can I get them to play in unison with my guitar sections? Because on many of Weebl's and Grovermans tabs, I never see tabbed out bass or drum pieces, but they're always in there.

ok, on the very first bar of every powertab score i write, over the bar line, it regesters an extra quaver (without the bar line it fits fine but with it, it doesnt flow, the notation is all right so what the heck is up with it?
#109
I think you just have a different amount of notes than you do aat the top. Check to make sure all the notes add up to the same thing.

Hi guys.. Yep Im new too. Must congratulate so many people with their patience on this board, and this thread particulary.

Anyway, here I was wandering around Tabs and decided Id have a look in the forums. I happened to open this thread and discovered PTab.

STOKED!!

(but theres always a but)

Sure, sure I d/l the program, and started writing some ditties just for fun. Now I can read tabs and i can read notes from notation, but when it comes to the nitty gritty, Im lost.

I have attached my first try, and while its pretty ordinary, I think the advanced users may be able to give me hints where Im coming undone.

*If I add a new staff to a section, it seems if I want to play over my 'rythym' staff, my 'lead' can cut out whats happening in the 'rythym' staff. Hope that makes sense.

Ive also d/l a help file that was in the 1st few posts of this thread, but that doesnt work.

Im also having trouble repeating sections, and as you can see from my attached file, my bars are all over the shop.

If anyone could offer me any advice on these couple of points, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Feriss.

I didn't hear any problems with the playback like you said, it could just be your soundcard or something. In all the places with two parts simutaneously the voices were different anyway.

But your measures lines are a problem, the best way to remedy that would be to learn how bars are used in music, but for now just know that in order to make a section repeat you need to put the ||: and :|| bars around your section (the ||: at the beginning and the :|| at the end).

The score checker is a handy tool for finding where measure lines should be. It's the button with the green check mark on it.

#113
Thanks black magic... Ive sort of started getting a few measure lines happenin.. Ill update that file.
