App Store Description

Talanome is a full-featured, intuitive, easy to use Metronome app for every Carnatic musician, dancer, teacher and student of Carnatic Music and Dance!

With “Make Your Own Talam”, you are not restricted to Carnatic Music - create *any* beat sequence you like! Explore other genres of rhythm or create your own beats and share with your friends! Use the “Live” mode to provide the tala in real time in a Bhajan or Bharatanatyam setting.

As quoted in "The Illustrated Companion To South Indian Classical Music" by Ludwig Pesch:
"A musician or dancer needs to acquire an ability to maintain an even tempo
(kalapramanam) if the finer nuances of rhythm are to be mastered"

Keep up with a perfect beat, choose your tala with ease, and learn about Carnatic Talas along the way with Talanome!

With Talanome, you get:

* Precision Sound Engine giving you precise timing at any tempo!

* 181 Talas, including
* 175 Suladi Sapta Talas (the system of Talas currently in vogue in Carnatic Music today)
* 6 Chapu Talas (Tisra, Khanda, Misra, Viloma, Sankeera & Rupaka Chapu)

* “Make Your Own Talas” feature - explore more exotic talas (like Ashtottara Sata talas, Melakartha talas), beats from other genres of music (like Western or Latin, for example), or any beats you can conceive off, by transcribing them easily! Talanome comes preloaded with all 108 Ashtottara Sata Talas, a Fibonacci Talam, common beats like 3 and 4 beat patterns, along with talas that Pete Lockett, a world renowned multi-percussionist, created and has kindly shared with us! Importing and exporting talas are a breeze, and you can share easily via email. Versions from 6.0+ support fractional beats and creating smaller "Tala Phrases" which you can use and reuse in your beat pattern - this affords even greater control and ease over creating any beat pattern you like!

* Choose from 20 to 350 Aksharas per minute, with fine-grained control over tempo and the ability to easily change the Kalam by speeding up or slowing down the tempo by a factor of 2.

* With the “Tap Tempo” feature, you can tap out the rhythm and Talanome will set it to the appropriate value!

* Nadai and Kalai support. Play the Talam with/without Nadai! Play it at different Kalais!

* A unique visual representation of the tala using animation to facilitate following along with the beat. Keep track of the beat with bold beat numbers and the ability to switch between different representations by double tapping the Audio Visualizer!

* Rich sound options:
* Great natural sound derived from a real Manjira and Nattuvangam
* Select from a pitch of 1 kattai (C) all the way to 7 kattai (B)
* Choose a hand clapping sound for a shruti neutral sound
* Ability to play alternate nadai sounds (mimicking Chapu talam voicings)

* Talanome supports background play, so it keeps playing in the background even when minimized. Its sounds can also be mixed with other audio/apps, so if you want to practice with your favorite song or instrument, you can still keep the perfect beat!

* With version Talanome 5.5+, Inter-App audio is also supported on iOS7+. This will enable you to integrate Talanome with even more audio/apps!

* Volume control - control the volume level directly from the app. Useful when mixing with other audio/apps. Turn down the volume completely if you only want visual cues.

* Get detailed information about each Tala
* Learn more about Carnatic Talas in the reference section
* Help section has a detailed write-up on Talanome’s abilities for your benefit

* Fits in your pocket - no bulky boxes to carry around and it is a multi-functional educational tool to boot!
* Supported on the iPad as a native app

Like any good metronome, Talanome keeps a precise beat, which is important when you are trying to hone your skills, either while singing, playing a percussion instrument or dancing. With Talanome's sound engine, you get the precision of timing that you need and ought to expect!
