What’s New

Version 1.3

What's New:

- A new and refreshed Bandish logo
- Responding to your feedback, we improved the Taal selection page, highlighting the selected Taal and maintaining the scroll position in the Taal list
- We've made Bandish even more accessibility-friendly with new voiceover fixes
- Seamlessly resume your practice with multiple taals with the help of the "last used tempo" feature. Bandish now remembers the last set taal tempo for every taal variation, for ease of use when switching taals
- The default taal tempos are now slower, so that the taals sound good when being played for the first time
- We've squashed pesky bugs, including the issue with Jhumra taal variations, for a smoother experience
- Enhanced lock screen controls by adding additional sur and taal info in the music control

And ofcourse, Bandish remains ad-free for an uninterrupted musical journey.

A great practice tool!

I auditioned several apps looking for a simple device to improvise over and work on my time. This app is limited in function but with a little creativity, surprisingly useful. It’s easy to navigate and set up.
It gives you enough control over parameters to be very creative.
Well Done!

Bandish has provided a simple and easy way to sing. Now I don’t have to get confused by using different apps for tanpura and metronome. In fact, the Tabla is a lot better than metronome. It helps me stay on beat. I also like how you don’t have to use both. This app has not dissatisfied me in any way!
