"I would have happily paid a hundred bucks for this as is!"

Many thanks for a great program, generously given free. I am using this as a teaching tool and would have been happy to pay for it and happy to pay even more if it had a few refinements. It has great features for working with and learning tab and notation in real time but unfortunately the printouts are unreadable as the tab font is tiny and can't find a way to change it. Tab symbols could use some refinement also, only suggesting as improvements, the program is immensely helpful as is.

Pros
  • Realtime playback allows demonstration of timing changes
Cons
  • tab font tiny and unreadable in printouts. Can't find a way to enlarge it.
  • Also can't find a way to divide the score into phrases for tidier printing
