View, print and listen to PowerTabs on your Mac

TabView makes it possible to view and print PowerTab tablatures with your Mac.

pc TabView v 2.5 Sep 25, 2012 MacOS X Intel
This update includes a fix for the MIDI playback function on Mountain Lion, whose application sandbox doesn’t get along very nicely with Apple’s own MIDI audio component :roll: . The system will display a warning that it will disable the sandbox for TabView the first time you try to play a song: don’t worry about it, just confirm the dialog.
TabView v 2.4 May 30, 2012 MacOS X Intel
This update adds a new welcome screen, replacing the file browser which popped up when launching TabView directly. This change should provide a friendlier experience, especially to new users.

    # When Metronome Intro was enabled, the bass score was active and you choose to start playing from a bar that didn't exist in the guitar score (because it was shorter than the bass one), a crash occurred. Fixed.

    # MIDI playback: fixed a crash that occurred with scores incorrectly containing Guitar In symbols for non-defined guitars.
    TabView v 1.28 Jun 30, 2009 MacOS X UB
    This version fixes a race condition that could trigger a crash if you changed Display Mode while playing a tab.

    Also, as it happened with our other products, support for Mac OS X 10.3 has been dropped, thus allowing to clean the code up a bit by removing workaround for 10.3 bugs.
