The software deals with 24 thaats/scales.
There are two modes available namely AUTO and MANUAL . In the AUTO mode it plays by it self and in the manual mode the user can play from his finger. Tap on the "ON" button to start playing and tap "OFF" button to enable the EXIT option.
Select thaat from the dropdown list and LOAD it.
Change the pattern through the Pattern+ and Pattern- buttons and then SELECT it.
For each one of them you can select one from the 32 patterns.
The Base Key of the swarmandal can be tuned accurately at the Cents level.
The tempo can be varied . Both the variation are possible while it is playing by pressing the Auto Settings button. This is possible in both Auto and Manual modes.
One can also change the pitches of all the notes except for "Sa" and "Pa", store and use them by checking the checkbox "User Scale".
As an example the "komal re","komal ga" and "komal dha" of Todi ,while ascending ,are slightly lowered and "Tivra Ma" is a little sharpened compared to their equal tempered counter part. While descending they are normal.
Similarly in some other Ragas also "Ati Komal re" is used.
The software can address all these situations.
You can also view the notations of the patterns while it is not playing..
One can select notes through "select notes" and custom swara mandal will provide you three octaves of these notes.
You can select one from 48 ragas and even play your customized sequence by selecting from the Menu. A dialog box will appear. Press the Compose Aroh button. Now you will see two sets of swaras. The upper set will have the aroh sequence (initially Sa Sa....). Now select the first swar in the upper set. It will turn blue. Now from the lower set ,which has all the required notes ,tap at your desired aroh swaras . They will be printed in the upper set and the selection will move ahead. After having completed your entry use the cells- button to reduce the cells so that they contain only your swaras.
Go back and repeat the same for avroh. Fix the gap in seconds between successive repeated sequences sequences using Gap+ and Gap-. Now you can press the play button.visit
After you have composed you should go to Menu-> Save Current Raga. Enter a name and save it. After this when you want to use it go to Menu->Saved Raga Files. Download this file. The sequence will work every where.
TO EXIT FROM THE USER SEQUENCE / RAGAS DIALOG BOX THE PLAYING SHOULD BE STOPPED.
WHILE STARTING TO COMPOSE AROH/AROH IT IS A GOOD PRACTICE TO MAKE THE NUMBER OF CELLS IN THE UPPER SET TO MAXIMUM USING Cells+ . AFTER HAVING COMPOSED REDUCE THE NUMBER OF CELLS USING Cells- SO THAT IT CONTAINS ONLY YOUR COMPOSITION.
To play sequence once only in "User Sequence" uncheck the looping checkbox. Keep the Gap > 10 sec. Tap on the "one shot" button when you need the sequence. If looping checkbox is checked the said button will be disabled.
Do not forget to tap at stop button even when you are in the "one shot" mode and no sound is coming else you will not be able to come out of the dialog box.
