Description

AlphaTab provides 2 main music notation display modes GuitarPro and SongBook. As the names indicate they adjust the overall music notation rendering either to be more in line how Arobas Guitar Pro displays it, or more like the common practice in paper song books practices the display.

The main differences in the Songbook display mode are:

  1. Bends For bends additional grace beats are introduced. Bends are categorized into gradual and fast bends.

    * Gradual bends are indicated by beat text "grad" or "grad.". Bend will sound along the beat duration.
    * Fast bends are done right before the next note. If the next note is tied even on-beat of the next note.
  2. Whammy Bars Dips are shown as simple annotation over the beats. Whammy Bars are categorized into gradual and fast.

    * Gradual whammys are indicated by beat text "grad" or "grad.". Whammys will sound along the beat duration.
    * Fast whammys are done right the beat.
  3. Let Ring Tied notes with let ring are not shown in standard notation. Let ring does not cause a longer playback, duration is defined via tied notes.

  4. Settings Following default setting values are applied:
