The default tuning is C# but can be changed by selecting "Pitches and Reverb" from menu. The Right side can be fine tuned in steps of cents (0-100) also.
The software allows to compose maximum 16 cells.
Select "Demo Tabla" from menu and press "Compose". You will see a grid of bols and tapping at these you can assign different bols to different bols and the selection will move forward in a cyclic manner. If you tap at a particular cell of composition then that will become the new starting point. The combinations which do not have conventional names are expressed as "a + b" meaning that this is a combination of sound of column a and row b. Reduce the number of cells to just contain the required bols.
Come back to "Demo Tabla " and press the "Settings" button. Here you assign beat value and volume to each cell.The total number of beats to be used as beats / cycle will depend on what fraction of beats you assign to different cells. To do this you should first fix the fraction using Mult+,Mult-,Div+ and Div- buttons. Range is from 1 to 8. Tap on cells to assign this fraction to them. You can change the fraction and assign it to other cells. Each time you do this assignment the text in "Total Duration" will change. If the result is not a whole number, "++" will appear after the whole number.
A button toggles between "Duration Mode" and "Volume Mode" on successive tappings. Fix beat in the "Duration Mode". In the "Volume Mode" select a cell and move the slider it will change the volume from 0 to 64, see changes.
Composing Lahara is similar.
Come back to "Demo Tabla" and press "Play". .
You can change the number of cells in both "Settings" of Tabla and "Demo Lahara". This will change the total number of beats.
In "Demo Tabla", you can also copy the displayed line on main page. While not playing , one can change displayed line using "Next Line".
A displayed line on the main page can be edited from menu item "Edit Line Bol " and "Edit Line Volumes". Loading it again will restore the original line.
AFTER SELECTION PRESS THE LOAD BUTTON (while not playing)TO LOAD FILE.
