What's New in Version 9.6.5
- Slight enhancements to taal Tilwada
- Support for new Audiobus version
- Reduced minimum tanpura tempo to 40bpm
Why? Why? Why? Would anyone play exercises with a metronome when you could use this. The benefits are numerous. First of all, you don't lose your sanity they way you do with click tracks and incessant metronomic clicks. Second, you can learn to play over very odd beat groupings and the rhythmic subdivisions contained therein. But here's a hidden benefit, you can improve you ear training by constantly measuring and learning the pitch relationship between what you're playing and the pitch(es) within the drone.
This is a VERY USEFUL app!
Indispensible app for singing or playing Indian classical/film music
Your life is completely transformed with this wonderful app!! Connect your iPad with a Hifi amp and speakers you will be blown away with the pure sounds coming out of your iPad. You may just keep the tabla running in the background with properly set "drone" and you may just go on improvising, it's so fulfilling. My iPad is completely paid for, now :)
Best Classical Indian Music App
Awesome!!!! I've downloaded other similar apps on Andriod devices but this one is ten times better and more accurate. Very worth the price as hardware usually cost a couple hundred bucks this app is only $25 well worth it plus its adjustable and flexible with too many attributes to describe in a review. Great app!!!!
