PRESETS FOR 32 RAGAS HAVE BEEN UPLOADED. USE THEM THROUGH Menu->UserSequence->Load Raagas.
Although the Aroh and Avroh have been given very carefully but if you think otherwise you can edit them.
User Scale applies on thaats. For User Sequences/Raagas you can optionally apply it on Aroh and Avroh by checking/ unchecking Aroh Shrutis and Avroh Shrutis checkboxes in the corresponding Dialog box..
The software deals with 24 thaats/scales.
There are two modes available namely AUTO and MANUAL . In the AUTO mode it plays by it self and in the manual mode the user can play from his finger. Tap on the "ON" button to start playing and tap "OFF" button to enable the EXIT option.
Select thaat from the dropdown list and LOAD it.
Change the pattern through the Pattern+ and Pattern- buttons and then SELECT it.
The first 10 belong to Sri Vishnu Narayan Bhatkhande ji
and the next 14 are due to Sri Chaitanya Kunte ji.
For each one of them you can select one from the 32 patterns. The patterns after 19 use laykari also. "Lk" stands for Laykari.
The Base Key of the swarmandal can be tuned accurately at the Cents level.
The tempo can be varied . Both the variation are possible while it is playing by pressing the Auto Settings button. This is possible in both Auto and Manual modes.
One can also change the pitches of all the notes except for "Sa" and "Pa", store and use them by checking the checkbox "User Scale".
As an example the "komal re","komal ga" and "komal dha" of Todi ,while ascending ,are slightly lowered and "Tivra Ma" is a little sharpened compared to their equal tempered counter part. While descending they are normal.
Similarly in some Ragas "Ati Komal re" is used.
The software can address all these situations.
You can also view the notations of the patterns while it is not playing..
You can also play your customized sequence by selecting from the Menu. A dialog box will appear. Press the Compose Aroh button. Now you will see two sets of swaras. The upper set will have the aroh sequence (initially Sa Sa....). Now select the first swar in the upper set. It will turn blue. Now from the lower set ,which has all the thirteen notes of an octave ,tap at your aroh swaras . They will be printed in the upper set and the selection will start moving ahead. After having completed your entry use the cells- button to reduce the cells so that they contain only your swaras.
Go back and repeat the same for avroh. Fix the gap in seconds between successive repeated sequences sequences using Gap+ and Gap-. Now you can press the play button.
In order to edit aroh/aroh select the swara in the upper set and press the required swara in the lower set.
TO EXIT FROM THE USER SEQUENCE DIALOG BOX THE PLAY SHOULD BE STOPPED.
WHILE STARTING TO COMPOSE AROH/AROH IT IS A GOOD PRACTICE TO MAKE THE NUMBER OF CELLS IN THE UPPER SET TO MAXIMUM USING Cells+ . AFTER HAVING COMPOSED REDUCE THE NUMBER OF CELLS USING Cells- SO THAT IT CONTAINS ONLY YOUR COMPOSITION.
WHILE PRACTICING ON AN INSTRUMENT THE DAMP LEVEL >= 5 WILL DO BUT WHILE USING IT AS A FILLER IN SINGING THE LEVEL SHOULD BE 2/3 SO THAT HE NOTES STAY AND GIVE YOU AAS.
