App Reviews

  • Disappointing

    By B'bba
    After looking at iTablaPro (which seems very full featured), I was hoping this app would be more than a two-sample player. Only four samples: open & closed for large & small. No velocity or variety switching, no loops, no tuning, Really should be a freebie. —That is, unless Prasad has plans to improve it.
  • please add scale changer

    By home recorder
    please try to have a changeable scale for the sounds, to use wth other instruments the sur has to match
  • Needs improvement

    By Paramananth
    OK for 99 cents. The open sound needs to be clear, the closed sound needs to be more natural. There is a static-like sound at the end of both sounds.
  • Nice start, but..

    By BayAreaRasik
    ..needs work to be ready for primetime. 1) Close sound doesn't feel natural. I'm sure this can be improved. 2) Needs a pitch changer badly! Thanks for great work so far on this and other products and keep up the good work.
  • Simple and useful!

    This is a nice simple app that does what it advertises. Love the sound, and I can play a pretty fast accompanying pattern with the two buttons - feels very natural to me. And I love that I can now play this app with iTanpura running in the background and combine the two sounds effortlessly!

    Sound pretty good. Think about making it automatic like ilehra
  • Very nice

    By Rnileshwar
    Very nice innovation. Very useful. The closed sound (clap) could use some work to sound a little more realistic. Also, if access to iManjira were available whole operating iTabla Pro, it would be really very nice - at least for those who have purchased both apps. Excellent app. I'd like to see more features and improvements with updates.
  • Sounds Real

    By Cosmo tc
    Exactly like the real thing. That is what one would come to expect from the master musician-developer...
  • Sounds GREAT

    By mus1clover
    Simple app that does what it's meant to do - like both the small and large manjira sounds
  • Fantastic!!

    By CIOofMusic
    Very realistic sound, extremely easy to use AND cheap
