Great percussion app.

I love playing with this app. The Tablas sound great and the other percussion instrument sounds are authentic and appropriate for the sitar and tabla music.
Thanks for a fun, easy to use app for everyone.


Chris A from VA

Very good app, tabla and percussion sounds are high quality. Record/play feature is a nice touch.

Using latest IOS, no sound.

Eddie James & The Blue Memes

Made sure IOS was up to date, but still no audio being produced. Animation of drum tap is visible so the app recognizes input. Other similar music apss are working fine.
