Tabular, new notation software for Mac OS X
The new brand Chromatic Labs will launch next week a new music notation software on the Mac App Store.
Tabular, that's the name of this new Mac OS X software, allows users to create and edit standard scores and tabs, Chromatic Labs focused on stringed instruments (3 to 10 strings), including guitars and bass (with fretboard view), as well as percussion and drums.
The software helps you create complex scores with special notational features for legato, vibrato, bends, palm mutes, etc.
Tabular also includes a iTunes-style multitrack score/tabs library, a MIDI player with 53 instrument sounds and basic mixing features (volume, pan, mute and solo per track).
Lastly, the software features practicing tools, including a function that will increase the tempo at a user-defined pace, or performance logs that help the user control his improvements.
Multitrack scores/tabs created on Tabular can be printed and exported in ASCII (text), PDF or MIDI formats (with more formats to be supported in the future). It will also be possible to import Guitar Pro 5 and MIDI files.
Tabular will be available at the Mac App Store on March 26th, the price is yet to be announced. You'll find more info at chromaticlabs.com.
