"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" - From "The Illustrated Companion To South Indian Classical Music" by Ludwig Pesch
Talanome is a must-have app for every Carnatic musician and student of Carnatic Music!
Keep up with a perfect beat, choose your tala with ease, and learn about Carnatic Talas along the way!
All the common talas are available at the touch of a button. You can also choose any Tala combination based on the Suladi Sapta Tala system, the system of Talas currently in vogue in Carnatic Music today. You can also choose from 5 Chapu Talas (Tisra, Khanda, Misra, Viloma and Sankeerna Chapu). This gives you 180 Tala combinations at your fingertips! You can set the tempo in terms of the number of aksharas per minute and you can also choose to play the nadai (the number of beats or mathras) between aksharas. (Since the intervals between aksharas in Chapu talams are not further subdivided, Chapu talams do not have nadai)
Like any good metronome, Talanome keeps a precise beat, which is important when you are trying to hone your skills, either while singing or playing a percussion instrument. With Talanome's sound engine, you get the precision of timing that you need and ought to expect!
