What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· One Major changes in Version 1.2 is the sustain added to notes. Now Tanpura Machine sounds more like the drone of a real Tanpura. Your phone's built-in polyphony will ensure the sound is richer than that produced by most commercial electronic Tanpuras and Sruti Boxes.
· Second change is the continuity in strokes. Earlier versions would pause for a fraction of a second between cycles of four plucks. Version 1.2 has eliminated this.
