RiyazStudio combines Tanpura and Tabla in a compact and responsive practice suite for performers and students of North Indian Classical Music. It's the first software that actually sounds like a real tabla player - because it uses real recorded tabla loops, rather than mechanically placing tabla bols at regular intervals. A single pitch control - with key and fine adjustment - controls both Tanpura and Tabla. Tempo is finely adjustable from vilambit (very slow) to ati drut (very fast) - and can even be set by tapping at the desired speed.
What a program. Learn music or do the meditation or feel the joy. Do whatever you want. I want in search of the hardware tanpura but that is costly but when I found this it fulfilled my long long thirst and it really helped me in developing my voice
