xTab is a combination text editor and typesetting tool for creating high-quality lute (early guitar-like instrument with a rounded back) tabulature, based on Wayne Cripp's TAB format. We originally wrote this app for the medieval ensemble Asteria and they agreed we should distribute it to the community!

  • Lots of bug fixes, universal binary, midi support, file saving and loading process improved, contains latest build of TAB postscript engine (with its own set of bug fixes), new icon!

I can't believe we have a lute tab editor before a good guitar tab editor.

Can't believe it!

Well actually on Linux, and the web, and via email as well, if you read the TAB documentation ;-p

Now all I have to do is retune my guitar to lute tuning and I'm away :-)
