I have an older Riyaz Master Pro drum machine. As I listen to the music on CD's, they don't usually tell you what beat the Raga is played in. I'm hoping if some of you out there that use a drum machine for pleasure like myself or practice, could match some popular Ragas with their most used drum beats and if possible tempo's. Thank You.

Any raga can be played in different beats.
The are specific bandish (compositions) with a corresponding beat. But a list of them is enormous. There are many books, mainly in Indian languages, that contain such a list. But I don't think this is what you are looking for.
The most popular beats are teen taal, ek taal and rupak taal. Light classical is usually played in 6 or 8 beats (dadra/kehrawa.)
You should try to count how many beats the cycle of the composition has. Or post a sample and the members here can tell you.
I hope this helps
