Version 1 - The Precision Tuner Engineered for the Human Voice
In the Gurukul system, students of music would be taught for long hours by the Guru every day. This allowed learning precise positions of notes through continuous feedback. These days, students learn a few hours a week and then practice many hours a week on their own, without guidance, making it difficult to attain note precision; they thus get into bad singing habits that are hard to fix later.
The first version of the NaadSadhana iOS app solved this problem by providing biofeedback to gently guide the student towards the perfect note, increase both vocal and aural resolution and build muscle memory for singing perfect notes.
Version 2 - The Smart Swarmandal
Being a software engineer as well as a Hindustani Classical Singer, Sandeep is deeply interested in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence as well as the science and art of Music. He's been fascinated by the swarmandal, a traditional string instrument, that can create a magical ambience. The swarmandal also has the ability to spontaneously 'entrain' or synchronize one’s notes without conscious effort. Unfortunately, tuning the 35+ strings of the swarmandal for a given Raga is both difficult and time consuming.
Version 2 of NaadSadhana contains a smart virtual swarmandal which is always perfectly tuned, creative, concert-worthy and understands over 100 Ragas. At the touch of a button, it will accompany you perfectly, artistically, and intelligently as you sing or play.
