☆ Free, universal tablas using Ratatap Drums' cutting edge engine! ☆

The harder you hit the drums, the louder they sound. Swirl your finger around for slower or faster rolls. The drum sound varies slightly from hit to hit, just like real drums. With the fastest response time of any drum app, it feels incredibly good to play.

Choose from one of the four included tabla sets. Unlock a hidden bonus set.

☆ The harder you hit the drums, the louder they sound! A first for an iPhone app!
☆ The fastest response time -- more than 60% faster than the competition!
☆ Professionally recorded drum sounds at 44.1khz high fidelity!
☆ Natural drum rolling -- the faster you drag your finger, the faster the roll!
☆ Realistic modeling of drum strikes so drum rolls blend and repeat hits don't sound like machine guns!
☆ Pitch bending depending on where you hit the drums!
☆ Try our "Dueling Tablas" so two people can rock out with their own set on one device!
☆ So much more!

Needs a tanpura accompaniment

Not a bad app, but needs a tanpura accompaniment that can be tuned. I like the ability to make rolls.

Also need the ability to tune the individual drums, and edit drum sets like you get in the Ratatap Drums app. The pitch variations are a little wild, so they don't sound natural, and we need an option to be able to reduce the amount of the variation, if need be.

This would be a really awesome app then.

Nice Tabla's

I'm not a tabla player but I've been playing drums professionally for 40 years (wow) and I enjoy the sound and feel of the Tabla's. They app has exposed me to and given me a better appreciation of tabla playing and the associated music which is much
more subtle and intricate than I could have imagined before this experience. So, thank you.

Amazing features, especially the dual tabla mode! I love it that two people can play their own tabla set, and they're even pitched differently, so a drum circle is possible with up to four people! Plus, the touch sensitivity is spot on, which makes for interesting sound variations. A lot of fun for a little app! Love it!
