What's New in Version 9.7.4
iOS 9 compatibility fixes for IAP
I bought an iPad in order to run this app
Couple of years later I was grateful to find out I automatically could get the iPhone version.
It's still by far my favorite app. I wish developers would do similar things for other styles if music.
I'm not a Indian classical player, but I mess around with Kirtan. (Suggestion: set up your favorites so your 6, 8 and 16 beat tals are all easily available without having to scroll through all the other options. Yeah, someday I hope to play in 13 and a half, but until then...) I love the interface but what really makes it are the quality of the sounds. In fact I wish the tabla was available for playback through a sampler. I asked and got an immediate and polite no for an answer. Hmmmmmm, perhaps I should take off one star...
wonderful backing for my native american flute
I found the reference for this app on flutopedia. As a NAF style flute player always looking for backing tracks. This app is amazing even includes a shruti box drone. You can adjust the key to any flute and the myriad settings that come with it are enchanting. A wonderful way to experience actual East Indian beats and rhythms.
It's never failed on me unlike other apps. It works well in tandem with recording apps and minimizes on the lock screen to show me the taal (which beginners often need). The tanpura is just fabulous--I can customize it to tune both or either. Can't get enough of this setup!
