Anyone able to play .ptb files on a Mac OS?

Recommended Posts

PowerTab 1.7 evidently won't do it.

There was supposed to be a PowerTab 2.0 that was cross platform, but I can't find it anywhere.

You did a search “.ptb files Mac OS”, I assume, and found nothing.  Yes?

Yes.

I mean- nothing.

I mean- there's no evidence of PowerTab 2.x available for download or alternative apps that can negotiate .ptb files.

:(

It turns out that tabledit (which will NOT open a .ptb file in Windows) works great for opening .ptb files on my iPad.

I never even bothered trying  it until the other day because I knew they weren't compatible on PCs.

Hey, looks like I got my own thread going on here.

So, the post above is only partially true.

Some, but not all .ptb files play nicely on the iPad. I have no earthly explanation for this.

The good news is I found a free converter, gtp2tef (guitar pro to .tef) and that works great.

OK, now I can throw the confetti.

Good deal. Glad it worked out. I rely pretty much on my ear to sort stuff out on the fret board. I attempted Tuxguitar some years back when I thought about scoring my own stuff but Mr Pointless, always present and pretending to be a realist, nagged me about doing something else with my time that actually had relevance.
