Pocket Raga provides accompaniment music from a tabla, tanpura and a shruti box for Indian-style vocalists, instrumentalists and musicians. Serious students can use this app as a helpful tool for riyaz, or casual singers can use this to practice their rhythm and fine tune their pitch.
All of the music samples were recorded in-studio by professional musicians and are exclusive to this application. Care has been taken to ensure the highest quality audio playback, including non-destructive tempo and pitch shifting.
