Pocket Raga - Full Version


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)

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!

*** PERMISSIONS ***

Good to start with... ... but needs better sound for the 'bayan'. There is practically no bass so the 'Dha Dhin' sounds similar to the 'ta tin' and the 'sam' is not easily recognizable. Should be easy enough to update. If done, will be worth an easy 5 stars! Update: The sound is not too bad if played on an external speaker!

Decent Very simple and user friendly though many features like recording , fine tuning tabla to sound better.
