“As a tabla-player myself, it became apparent to me that it would be useful to have an app which could throw out phrases for me to repeat, focussing on timing and clarity. I became aware that my practice generally focusses on one composition at a time and rarely do I try to mix up phrases. This app aims to give the player a challenge in developing a theme by repeating or improvising on a sequence of phrases as the app calls them out, in a ‘call and return’ style.”

Features include:

– Realistic instrument sound from extremely good quality samples (using over one minute of 320kbps stereo audio recorded from live tabla)

– Pitch control of instrument sounds

– Tempo control

– Over 100 pages of phrases

– Repeat control for each page which can be set to 2,3,4,8 or 99 loops

– A 2 pitch metronome synchronised to the cycle

– There’s a wide variety of phrases for most levels and abilities.
