Have you ever felt that you are not singing/performing at the correct pitch. Who helps you at these times when your tutor is not around. SWAR ALAP, one of our pioneering achievements in Music Technology, comes to your rescue. With more than 100,000 installs and rating of 4.6 on Play Store, it is one of the highest rated apps for music learning-
The App focuses on the Indian and Global users who want to learn the basic and advanced concepts of Vocal and Instrumental music and enhance their singing and music instrument playing skills. Depicting both- Western Notes and Indian Sargam (sa re ga ma...), while capturing the voice of the singer. The App allows the performer to set its own scale and converts the same from western scale to Indian Sargam and vice versa. It helps users improve their singing by perfecting their pitch enabling them to hit the notes with absolute accuracy going down to the microtone(Shruti, as it is called in Hindustani Music). It helps students who want to practice for hours but do not have the privilege of having their teacher(guru) by their side for that much time. It helps them analyse very closely on a real-time basis on where they went off the pitch either on a steady note(SUR) or while performing a TAAN(rapid note transitions-riffs) or a song. Supported by extensive video tutorials along with concepts of Indian Riyaz(Practice) system.
Who is it for exactly?
This is meant for beginners, intermediate and advanced music students and even professionals to do course correction and attain independence in their daily riyaz(practice) and also while rehearsing for songs to know where they are going wrong or not hitting the pitch and notes perfectly.
Singers of western music can make use of this if they toggle from the Indian SARGAM feature to Western Notes.
Note pitch shown as a note and in a graphical form.
When the performer hits the pitch on the note within 10 cents of the note the colour turns green.
If the performer hits a pitch higher than the appropriate note then the colour shown is orange and if the pitch is lower than the appropriate pitch, the colour is yellow. The imperfection is also depicted in cents.
The performer can set his own scale(Sa- of hindustani music) - or the tonic note. The vertical(Y axis) scale turns into the hindustani SARGAM when tapped in the extreme right side of the screen. The tonic note is depicted in a red colour.
The performer can record his performance for a maximum of 6 minutes and review it by playing it back.
From beginner to an advanced proponent of Hindustani music - This app helps all.
This app is seamlessly integrated with our percussions app - Swar Taal.
