Play playback with traditional Indian sounds
Pocket Raga is a musical application based on an Indian style. The app pretends to create an accompaniment music from three popular Indian instruments called: tabla, tanpura and shruti.
How does it work? Add and instrument and control the pitch the way you prefer. Begin the playback and follow the rhythm until you become the master of Indian music.
Maha Labs is the developer of Pocket Raga full version and the lite one that will restrict the use after 5 minutes of radio playback (which is reset every 30 minutes).
Only for fans of classical Indian music, otherwise you won't find it useful at all. Great interface, minimalist design.
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! ***
- Tempo (BPM)
- Pitch (Frequency, Semi tones, cents)
- 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 ***
- Network communication: For sending user feedback and crash reports to the developers.
- Coarse location: To better understand where the application is being used.
- Phone state: To pause playback when you receive a phone call.

I m using it.Its really great app for classical music practiceners.plz add surmandal for better .thnx to all of u for this great app
-NO AUDIO bug : sometime software doesnt gives audio. -Swarmandal : its showing as 'coming soon'. When shall we expect the instrument?
Great app, needs a few fixes Great features for a little app! Tabla sound is very authentic but needs a stronger
Outstanding value for only $4.99! I do not review many apps or books. In general I find people expecting the world for $1.99 or $4.99 and then whining because the app or book is not a master piece rather pathetic. In this case after reading the reviews
Great features for a little app! Tabla sound is very authentic but needs a stronger "Sam"; tends to hide away in the loop. Could also use some 8 and 14 beat bhajan taals. Tanpura feels low def.. Not rich enough. Most importantly, doesn't allow to be mo
I bought this to have bhajanj theka.. And this very important taal is missing !!!
I liked it.. really very good app..
