This iPhone app is based on single character coding scheme I defined many years ago for a Windows version of TablaGuide. The initial version of this app allows the user to create beat patterns using basic strokes. The user defines each matra using the character codes separating matras with a dash character, and TablaGuide loops the pattern at the selected tempo.

Here is an example:

d=dha
D=dhin
T=tin
n=na
...

so, to play dadra (dha tin tin na dhin dhin), the following pattern would be entered:

d-T-T-n-D-D

So, the dashes separate the strokes into 6 separate matras (with one bol in each matra).

The best part is the COMPLETE FLEXIBILITY that the app provides in how these patterns are created.

So, in order to play the above pattern at double the speed, one could either adjust the tempo, or play the following (two bols in each matra):

dT-Tn-DD

Current version of TablaGuide comes at an introductory price of 99cents. As more features are added, the price is subject to change. Here are some of the upcoming features...

- ability to continue playing in the background
- additional bols
- ability to adjust pitch
