So, for some reason my little tanpura machine decided it would be awesome to just flat out not work. So, until I get it fixed, I need something to practice with. Does anyone know of any freeware for mac? I tried riyazstudio mini but it won't open on my mac for some reason, it always asks what application to open it with.... but it's an application itself so I'm confused. Can anyone help?

As at least a temporary measure there are some basic tunings here:

http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~mrahaim/

They are MP3 so should be able to be played on your MAC with any audio playing program that handles MP3.

They also have links to shorter but more extensive tunings.

Even with a shorter length, you should be able to easily loop it into a much longer piece on using some very simple sound editing software that is probably on your MAC.

Haha, brilliant, they have everything BUT the C tuning that I need. Awesome.

Thanks for the suggestion though. It just looks like I'll have to send this over to raagini and get them to fix it.

I did make the mistake of plugging it into the 220 volt slot when I got here, and the light came on and off but nothing happened, but that was after it didn't even work in New York. And then I realized I was in another country and I probably broke it more.

Thanks for your help guys.

They have all of them.
They are just a very small link on the page.

"C" is there, and it is 8 minutes.
