Pocket Raga - Tabla & Tanpura

Pocket Raga - Tabla & Tanpura


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.

*** CUSTOMIZE ANYTHING! ***

ALL INSTRUMENTS:
- Tempo (BPM)
- Pitch (Frequency, Semi tones, cents, swar)

TABLA (drums):
- Taal or Tala (including Teentaal, Dadra, Deepchandi, Ektaal and more)

TANPURA (or Tambura):
- Choose notes for strings (Sa, Re, Ga...)

SRUTI BOX (or surpeti)
- 13 individual reeds / swara

Pocket Raaga is great for anyone with interest in classical Indian, Hindustani, Carnatic, or Bollywood music. The virtual instruments (tamboura and sur peti) can be used in a concert or for riyaaz on your Droid. The tabla can even be used as a metronome for bharatanatyam or kathak!

*** DEMO ***
Audio will be restricted after 5 minutes of use. However, the restriction is reset every 30 minutes.

*** PERMISSIONS ***
- Network communication: For sending user feedback and crash reports to the developers.

- Phone state: To pause playback when you receive a phone call.
