If you play guitar, bass, drums, or keyboards, TabToolkit is the best way to learn and jam along with your favorite songs! TabToolkit gives you 3 ways to get great music: buy instantly in the Tab Store, upload from your PC, or search online.
◼ Better learning: Thanks to speed control, A/B looping, full-score music notation with all instruments, and real-time instrument guides, TabToolkit makes learning a snap. You can easily select the part you want to learn, slow it down, and loop it with full control of each track's audio. On guitar, bass, drum and keyboard tracks, handy instrument guides show where to put your fingers, or in the case of drums, which drums to hit. There's no better way to accelerate your learning or have a fun jam-along session!
◼ More music: TabToolkit now includes the Tab Store, with hundreds of affordable, officially licensed, accurately transcribed songs, and more being added all the time. TabToolkit also gives you easy access to your own guitar tab collection, supporting text, PDF, and multitrack rich tab formats. You now have 3 ways to get great music: buy from the Tab Store, upload from your PC, or search online.
◼ Richer music: With TabToolkit, you can get full scores for your favorite songs, with complete notation for each guitar, bass, drum, and keyboard track, as well as vocal tracks with lyrics. TabToolkit includes multitrack audio synthesis, based on high-fidelity audio samples of over 190 different instruments; playback quality is outstanding. TabToolkit's music notation is unmatched for visual quality and smoothness of animation, and includes gorgeous full-resolution rendering on all Retina displays.
◼ Compatibility: TabToolkit supports several multitrack music notation formats, including Guitar Pro, Power Tab, and our own Tab Store format. TabToolkit also supports text tabs and PDF-based sheet music; note however that text and PDF tabs do not support advanced capabilities such as multi-track notation and audio playback. TabToolkit works on all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models, and delivers highest audio synthesis quality on newer models.
What's New in Version 2.0.7
Bug fixes and performance enhancements
Best iPad app for drum practice, hands down.
I’ve tried pretty much every drum tab and sheet music app out there for iPad, and this is by far the best. The $0.99 tab store songs are great, though a bit dated (great for me, being a child of the 80s) - but keep in mind you can add your own tabs and sheet music at no cost. On that note, it renders and plays back Guitar Pro files better than Guitar Pro’s own iPad app! (I bought the GP app and still prefer TabToolkit for my GP drum tab files.)
My only suggestion for improvement would be to lose the :3000 upload page and instead use the iTunes file manager thing (iTunes -> (ipad) -> Apps -> (click app) -> Manage Files, whatever that’s called), as it’s more convenient to add files to apps from another room if your iPad typically lives on a different floor than your computer.
Agile Partners, keep up the great work, and aspiring musicians and hobbyists, give this a download.
Must buy for tab players
Not sure why there are reviews complaining that this app comes with a few public domain songs to showcase how the app works. You are purchasing a viewer/player similar to Guitar Pro, Power Tab, TuxTab, etc. and not licensing music. It's a solid app that allows you to easily open your existing Guitar Pro and Power Tab format files.
Kinda wish I’d known how limited the song selection was. Really, there are about 1000 songs here… which sounds like a lot until you see that some of them are old washed-up bands like Meatloaf, America, or Wham. I wouldn’t mind paying for songs I wanted, but I didn’t find a single song that was worth paying for. Added to the problem is that I was mostly interested in the bass lines, and there are only about 600 of those. Compare that to a competitor’s app which advertises about 400,000 songs. Now that’s a playlist!
