Frequently asked questions
What sorting options are available in the tab library?
Basically there are two views of your tabs: songbook view and track list view. You can switch between these views by selecting 'songbooks a-z' or 'tracks a-z' in the library header. In track list view you can sort your tabs by title, artist, songbook or no. of plays by clicking on the corresponding header item.
What is a songbook?
A songbook is a collection of tabs - just like a real songbook. You can create your own compilation by editing the songbook property of your tracks. In songbook view you'll get a pretty visual representation of your tabs. You can even associate custom artwork with your songbooks to make searching tabs more friendly.
How can I move my tabs between songbooks?
Select a tab from the library and simply modify its songbook property in the track info pane.
How can I associate a custom artwork with a songbook?
Select a songbook and click on the artwork icon of the songbook info pane. You'll be prompted to select an image from your computer.
Note: The info pane of an opened songbook can be accessed by clicking on it's name near the 'close' button.
Can I add multiple tabs (e.g. folders containing tab files) to the library?
Sure. You can simply drag'n drop folders containing tab files into the library.
I'd like to move the library contents from one computer to another. Is there an easy way to do that?
Yes, absolutely! First, use the 'export tracks' feature on the source computer. You can launch this feature by clicking the options button in library view ( upper-right corner ). Select the tracks you want to transfer and click 'finish export'. Once the export task completes, copy the generated files to the destination computer, start Go PlayAlong and use the 'import tracks' feature to load all the files and settings from your other machine.
Can I replace the default synthesizer sound downloaded with the player?
Yes, you can! Select a track in your library and make sure that it uses synth audio. You can easily switch to synth audio by clicking on the 'Synth' button in the track info pane. Click on the listbox labeled 'Audio' and select the last item ( Edit Sound Banks ). The resulting list contains the Sound Banks installed with the player. You can add a new Sound Bank by clicking on the '+' button below the Sound Bank list. You'll be prompted to select a SoundFont file (sf2 file format) from your computer. When adding a new SoundFont file, please make sure that you select a general midi soundfont set. General midi soundfonts (often referred as 'GM SoundFonts') include sound samples for the whole range of midi instruments.
