iShala is an Indian music software that combines a tabla machine, a lehra player and an electronic tanpura/swarmandal. It provides rhythmic and melodic accompaniment for music practice or just to jam along virtual musicians.
Featured instruments are Tabla, Harmonium, Swarmandal and Tanpura. You can select to play one or all of them, and they will automatically synchronize together. You can also play Swarmandal manually.
Includes 41 rhythmic cycles, melodic tunes in more than 80 different ragas and 7 different tempos: possible combinations are thus nothing short of infinite!..
Audiobus and IAA compatible
