About this app

All musicians, professional or amateur, experts or beginners, need Tanpura or Shruti box for the practice and performance of Indian music.
Though sometimes people prefer Shruti box or electronic Tanpura for the ease of use and convenience, it is well known that there is no real substitute for the beautiful resonating sound of a real Tanpura.
At Dreamtones Inc., leveraging years of experience with music, signal processing and developing professional quality mobile applications, we have created with passion, this Dhwani Tanpura professional application.
The application has been designed and carefully tuned to accurately reproduce the sound of an original Tanpura instrument, including its beautiful tone, resonance and overtones. The professional instrument quality sounds of this application, simple but advanced customization options and professional level signal processing settings, sets this application apart from other such apps available today.
Scroll left or right to choose different pitch settings. In settings, use different Tanpura types (Mellow vs Deep), different pluck styles (Soft vs Medium), different middle notes (Pa, Ma, Ni 1, Ni 2). To fine tune, you can fine tune the pitch with a resolution of 10 cents, also independently fine tune the pitch for Pa / Ma / Ni. You can also change the tempo of string pluck and adjust the global volume or reduce the pa / ma / ni volume, relative to the global volume.
Default lets the app run in the background, so you start a recording app if required while this is playing in the background.

As of version 18.1,
* Improved and further fine tuned Tanpura sounds
* Advanced Tanpura tuning options
Middle note tuning choices:
Equal temperament tuning (standard tuning system used in modern music)
Just intonation (traditional Indian tuning system)
Manual tuning (ability to adjust the middle note manually)
Option to choose Tanpura master tune
A4=440 Hz (Standard pitch used in modern music
A4=432Hz (An alternative natural frequency pitch standard)
* Additional "None" option for the middle note

A few other fixes.

Best Tampura sound, provides a lot of options to adjust pitch, tempo, volume, etc., best suited for students and artists. There is a slight delay while changing pitch, taking time to load. This can be looked into.

Brilliant app, everything is perfectly in tune, despite what others say, save for a little annoying bug: when you pause, change tone and then start the sound again then the actual tone won't change. That is probably the reason for "out of tune" comments

Great sounding. I encourage use of this app! Can also record running with other apps in background also! Add to any creative mixes! HOT IDEAS!!! Or just run for room or meditation atmospheric noise. Instead of white noise machines for privacy buffer!!
