This is an online app which emulates Indian Tabla and has many features to make it useful for accompaniment, for creating rhythm loops or for learning about various Indian rhythmical compositions.

It's currently on this page of my site:
http://www.mnm.co.in/MUSICPROD/?page_id=518

Please feel free to comment, make suggestions (I’ll start a wishlist) for future amendments and features or send me compositions you’d like to add to the browser. The function buttons at the top centre will allow you to save and load patterns to your hard drive or export the cycle as a wav file. (This last feature needs a bit of work as it currently stands..)

Thanks for any feedback
Marc

Looks fascinating but I couldn't find where to download the so-called free app.
Examples I could find by using the Download pointers at the top right corner but...

Nice app, good samples. Nick it's an online app, you use it via the browser.

Hey, Hi Nick.. we met in Goa about 6 years ago.. Palolem.. also briefly in Varanasi.
Yes - it's online - the bit that looks like it might be a screenshot IS the actual app.
Can make a downloadable version in the future if there is interest in such a version.
Might try converting to iPad at some point too.
Cheers
M.

PS The samples are my tabla - the dayan I reskinned myself and thought it would be good to record it at its prime...

What's your 'real' name? Any pics. I presume you must be on some of mine.

I agree, this is lots of fun! It would be great if you could put down a bol multiple times without having to select it again, and I'd love to be able to switch to a view with the bols marked in devanagari. Nice work!

Nice app, would be great if we could integrate into my website: http://tablapassion.com

It will really improve the views of your app and my website!

Let me know if you're interested - Great Concept!

@Mr Kalish - yes, I agree. I was thinking that as a future change maybe once you click a bol it sticks to the mouse and can be dropped repeatedly after that until you choose another one. View them in Devanagari - that would be nice but someone might have to help me with the nuances of that!

@Acelga - I can add more Kaherwa examples if you like - the ones there were just me messing about really and are a bit random. I notated that sound as 'Kran' but actually it is a flick with the left hand and a delayed na on the right so pretty much what you guessed. 'Kran' is usually ke + na where the na plays after the ke like a 'flam'.
'Chuk' as I was taught by a few tabla players is the quick snappy sound made with the index finger usually in 'lao' area and sometimes on the 'kinar'. Like one finger 'tak' but a sweeter sound as it's not in the centre.

Thanks for your feedback!

Nick, I am more usually known as Marc Clayton - it's no secret, it's on the website I pointed you to! Hope you are well and enjoying life!

Cheers
Marc.

More Kaherwa is always welcome! I am specially interested in that.
I think I got the "Chuk". It is played like Na but you mute the entire head of the tabla so it sounds dry and crisp. I play this a lot.
Thanks for your good work. This and the iLehra are the best efforts I have ever seen on indian music software so far.

TablaLab had to be moved to new hosting.
It can now be found here...

http://www.mecaudio.eu
or
http://www.marcclayton.net/mecaudio/?page_id=58

This is an online app which emulates Indian Tabla and has many features to make it useful for accompaniment, for creating rhythm loops or for learning about various Indian rhythmical compositions.

Thanks for the update ... btw I like that 3 minute medley of your stuff on that first link, especially the middle eastern riffs!

I would like to encourage others to visit your page because, in addition to the this very cool app, you were to modest to note that the page entitled "examples" has some very cool sound clips of what I presume must be your own work. I love some of the names of those clips, my favorite is:
Quote:
Madness / Wistful / Tabla / Piano / Hypnotic / Fusion
I would love to hear a bit more about what all these sound clips are all about.

Hi Pascal,

Thanks for your kind words and interest... hope you enjoyed using TablaLab.

I am a musician, composer and producer when I am not a software developer, hence the example tracks.
Some of these will be used in production music libraries so they might get picked up for use in film or documentaries, etc

Since my domain died I have pulled the site back together on this domain but it is a bit thin and threadbare at the mo - I hope to flesh it out a bit in the near future.

Happy tabla-ing
M.
