The Concept Of The App Is Good But.....


The overall program is very buggy. It is not iOS8 comaptible for iphone or ipod touch. It will just show a blank screen. The main mixers on the settings page do not work even on ipad. That is there is no audiobus capability makes this app fairly useless to the majority that might want to buy this app as I did only to be rudely disappointed. This app needs an update. There are better Tabla Tanpura apps on the istore that include no glitches and have audiobus. Wish now 30$ I had done more research.

Excellent software.

trkt kttk

With extensive taals and variations, it excels in the quality, musicality and variety of the Lehras. The functionality of being able to tune itself to the pitch of one's own instrument is missing. The absence of which does not diminish the five star rating.

Developer Response

Thank you for your kind words.

upgrade button?


Hi I bought the basic edition but would like to upgrade to premium edition, however, I do not have an Upgrade option only 'buy' option and then it is populated with options to buy packages separately but no 'Upgrade' option.

Developer Response

You can buy the remaining upgrades separately from "Upgrade" or "Buy" menu within the app.
