iShala is an "electronic" Tabla machine for iDevices. A lehra player.
It is always in my iPad since the day it was released. A long time ago, and with time it comes better and better.
Like most of all Tabla machines, it comes with a:
Tanpura (4,5 or 6 strings)
If you have selected in the Settings menu the 5 or 6 strings, you will be able to set the note for second string. You can also set the first string for all Tanpura, specify the pause when plucking the strings and adjust the speed at which strings are struck.
A Swarmandal, but here, you can set the notes included in the "scale" as well as the speed they will play, the time when they will play and the way they will play: ascending or descending. More, you can display the Swarmandal and play with it.
The Tabla rhythmic will be determined by the tempo you have choosen. 7 Tempo are available, but they added a Tempo feature which allows you to define it in BPM. This is cool!
The Harmonium, and this is not so easy to find in a Tabla machine, will play a different melody depending of the Raga you have chosen. Around 60 raga are available.
You have a volume slider for the four instruments, and you can play them independently.
iShala is Audiobus and IAA compatible....
To conclude, iShala is among the best Tabla machine in the App Store.
A Must Have, a Killer App!
I added the definitions of some words that you perhaps don”t know.
