Shaadikishehnai.com's Review of ItanpuraReviewed on 8/31/19 2:05 PM
I have played sitar professionally for 22 years & shehnai for 9 years. I just used the app for the 1st time & the app performed wonderfully! Any chance of a tavil app? Peace & Love

Ever since I purchased this app, My Raagini Digital has been collecting dust. This is a pleasant surprise.

Addendum to 4.5: As an iTanpura user since version 1.0, I am amazed at the frequency of updates and useful improvements. ITanpura is a steal at its current price, but I appreciate that it remains any easy choice for Indian musicians both student and professional, and also for crossover musicians who want a superb and flexible tanpura sample, and for meditators, massage practitioners, or even as a sleep aid -- although for me, it would just keep me singing all night. --- This application literally changes my life as a student/practitioner of Indian music. It is the application I've been waiting for since it occurred to me that something like this might be possible on the iPhone. Better than the electronic tanpuras I've heard for 1/10th of the price. And available any time; in the car, for instance. Hard to believe, but it's really a performance-quality instrument. If you perform music that would require a tanpura, and have an iPhone or iPod Touch, this application is 1000% worth the dinner out it will cost you. It produces the sound of two 4-string tanpuras (or one), sampled from good, well-tuned Hemraj tanpuras, with well-set jawari, tunable from male B to instrumental Eb (an octave and a third), with one-cent microtuning adjustments. It sounds superb through speakers or headphones, and not too bad just out of the iPhone speaker. The developer also seems very responsive to user input. Definitely a winner!
Manu SF's Review of ItanpuraReviewed on 8/31/19 2:05 PM
Don't get wrong, I'm not saying this is not a recommended app, but based in reviews, u expected it to substitute my real tambura, or my Radel. It doesn't. I'm a professional Carnatic vocalist and I was really looking forward for an app like this so that I could use it in concerts. Although i'm (still) impressed with the software part of the app, the tonal quality is just not good enough to make it as my primary tambura source. When you've done an app as good as this one (and paying as much also), I really expected it to have uncompromising tonal quality. Just because it is not as good as it could have been, I cannot rate this beyond 3 stars, which makes it a novelty item. And it's too pricey for a non-serious app.

This is truely great app. My old electronic tanpura broke so I tried it out. The quality of sound is truely close to the real thing. The swarmandal is great. I recommend this app to anyone who needs to practice music.

Saves lugging around large machines. Looking forward to tabla version.

With it's flexibility of "on the fly" tuning capabilities, I see this app as a permanent member for future recordings. Fantastic!

I like the tone and voice of it. I just love playing and listening to it. Continuous updates are also very useful. More raga presets would be appreciated.
