Bheema Tanpura, is a concert quality tanpura synthesiser. The app supports 2 accurately tuned/synthesised, tanpuras each with 6 strings and other advanced controls, all on a single page.

I am a signal processing engineer by profession and Hindustani classical singer by passion. I have developed this app after rigorous analysis of the resonance of instrument. Connect your device to good speakers and enjoy the sound in high fidelity. Ideally place the speakers at least 3 to 4 feet away for the best effect.

This version contains several digitized tanpura profiles. Use them and adjust the tempo/pluck-style to get the best combination that suits your taste. Two full octaves are now supported. Use the higher pitches with caution as they may sound little shrill and are suitable for use only with instruments.

* About Bheema Tanpura *

"This application takes its name from one of the greatest hindustani classical singers of our times, Pt Bhimsen Joshi, the maestro of Kiraana School of North-Indian classical music. He has been an inspiration for me and I belong to his school of Music; this software is a tribute to that great personality"

Enjoy the Naada of your new pair of tanpuras

Excellent! Very good for ambient music

I really like the sounds that this little app generates. I like to have it playing through my headset with two of the instruments playing along in a droning effect. So peaceful. I would only request that some additional feature like Audiobus gets added so that we can import the sounds into other music making apps. Then this app will get 5 stars and be epic!!!

Creates a serene ambiance when you need it.

Without having to really know too much about a Tanpura you can create an ambiance that is both calming and serene. I have been using this Bhim Tanpura App from some time now and I am thoroughly satisfied. I use it both during puja and while learning music. It is simply excellent.

Realistic Sound

This is hands down my favorite tanpura app, I've tried about five or six of them at this point. This app excels in reproducing the true acoustic quality of tanpura. Unlike iTanpura and other competitors, the tone, clarity, sustain, and harmonics are much more akin to that of the real instrument.
