i have both of these too, power tab first then guitar pro later when i could afford it

like many things in life, it was worth it to spend the money on the higher quality product, because guitar pro is basically a larger better version of power tab, although both are very good and functional

if you can, running guitar pro is worth it but if you have a crappy computer or no money power tab is a pretty nice program for free
#163
Definately Guitar Pro. It takes a while to figure out,but Its just better than Power Tab in every way.....except for size. WHEN THE **** IS GP6 COMING OUT!
#164
personally, i find it easier to create music in powertab than guitarpro, the only thing that would be better for powertab is to add more instruments, but i like learning stuff in guitarpro, i don't know why though

well, it's only at 5.2 just now, and version 4 went up to 4.11, so i'm guessing quite a while.
But i prefer Guitar Pro, IMO it's easier to use, nicer to look at and easy to understand, i just couldn,t get powertab to do what i wanted it to do.
#167
Hey, pretty new with guitar. And Power Tab used to be very helpful with learning songs, but now, it won't let me print. I even tried reinstalling it. Anybody have a similar problem?
#169
Guitar Pro is a very nice program, but Powertab has been able to write 2 voices years before GP... that is why I chose Powertab over GP. Having made over 400 tabs... and being of the opinion that both programs are excellent... it is my opinion that Power Tab Editor is slightly better just for the reason that it is easier to manipulate information... it has a ritardando/accelelrando button and the musical directions (Da Coda and Dal Segno) are far superior to GP5.2.

That... and the approval process of powertabs.net is far tougher than MSB or GProtab.net, thus the quality of the tabs is far better... and UG has nothing to say about it, since it stole the entire Powertab Archive a year ago.

Having said that... both programs are very good.

?
I can't afford guitar pro =(, so I have to use power tab.
also, I'm not really making tabs at the moment, just playing them, and I have one song I really want to play, but there literally isn't a powertab for it anywhere
#176
GP owns because you can select a single bar and play it over and over again. this helps when your trying to learn a song

GP is free if ya DL it from a torrent site

thats what i did
anyhow
pt is free
theyre both really close
but i like in guitar pro how you can look at a single bar and loop passages to learn em better...so, idk if its worth the money, but if youre gonna torrent it, its better than pt

Is that a newer vs of GP ? i dont have the thing there with the les paul

Sorry, I didn't notice that comment. I just read the new ones and assumed the rest were a string of 'Gp PwNs!!! 101z!' or 'Dudez, gp'z is the totally freez0rz if you dl it from torents man..'

Yes, it is a newer version of GP, you can go online to download the updates or if you're one of the cheap slags who won't shell out 60 bucks, go download the latest version through a torrent.
#184
I love GP, mostly because it automatically ends bars for you.

however, Power Tab is for more of an actual music writer XD

The only issue I have with Power Tab is it doesn't automatically end bars...you gotta do it and that's hard to do XD

it also doesn't have a beat counter, so it's very diffacult to write solos that are REALLY fast proporly.

So yeah, I bought Guitar Pro ^^

I personally hate writing music on Power Tab - it's really not very user friendly, and you can't shift notes around very easily. The playback thing gets really annoying and there's a really low range of instruments, and the sound of the slides and bends is mucked up.

I only use it if I just really need to hear the timing for some less audible guitar parts, that's it. But as it's free... I can't really complain.

I LOVED GP when I had the free 15 day trial, it's a shame I'm too much of a pussy to ask my dad if he can fork out £30 for the full version :P.

I find Guitar Pro has a much larger selection of sounds... Rather than Powertab: "Bleep Bleep Bleep". Not to mention you can import PowerTabs into Guitar Pro. >_>

As well, Guitar Pro makes it very easy to export MIDI (.midi) files to be imported to such programs as FL 7... But I guess that runs into FL 7 Talk.

I was surprised that people had issues with Guitar Pro... other than its price, of course.
#191
I've downloaded PT, really good, just a few anoying things, the range of sounds isn't very big, the sound of the slides are just crap, and you can't put in drums, but changing the length of notes isn't hard at all, it's just shift+up OR shift+down, depending if you want the notes longer or shorter, but that's pretty obvious I'll stay with pt until i can find the money for gp5,
#192
so i downloaded guitar power tab and now i have to extract the zip file im using a windows xp it says extracting on the extraction wizard but its been like that for a few minutes did i do something wrong or what do i do someone please help
#193
Am I one of the few people who purchased GP5 the day it came out? Which means I got the entire MSB library along with it for free. I use GP for non-guitar things too, I've composed a score arranged for a DCI band.... Powertab is too bare

Download the zip folder. Un-zip it (or just open it - do a virus scan of the folder just incase). Double click the .exe and install. That should be the way to do it. Then just follow the simple instructions.

Oh, and for people that keep saying download GuitarPro, check your inboxes for warnings. I don't appreciate people providing illegal ways to get this software and I'm sure GP don't either.

i downloaded the zipped compressed powertab file at download.com but when it got done i couldnt extract the file i right clicked it brought up extraction wizard then when i got to the point where it was supposed to extract it said no files to extract this has happened to me many times since ive been trying download it i just dont no shit about these file things
#198
Go to that second link (harmoney-central). Right click on the download link. Save target as. Untick that 'close dialogue box when download finishes' thing. Then click 'open folder'. It'll lead you to the place that you've saved it. Then double click on the zip folder. It should just open. I think from then on you should just have to double click on the setup.exe file, click run and then it should install.

i started out with PT and used it for over a year. After i got more experience writing music and found i about GP i got it and have been using it every since. What i like the most about it and whats keeping me hooked is the RSE. Having that realistic sound is making all the difference.

Could someone please tell me how to get rid of the staff in PT?

I have the lyrics in above my tab, and the staff is covering it up. Is there any way that I can rid of the staff so I can read my lyrics?
