Ya, by default we have that ji..

Now why is this thread so quiet apart from our rambling...
It was in full swing for weeks....nobody around?

Suji: I am a bit busy. Once in a while I am working on playing your varnam.

BTW, remember that one kedaram exercise we did ( sample12 ). In the end, I mixed together my playing and Suji's nice violin repro. Yesterday, on my iPhone, I found a loophole through which I can add my own ringtones instead of the purchased ones it officially allows. Now, that 14 seconds of Kedaram is my standard ring tone on my iPhone. :cool: A couple of people who heard that wanted it and I have given it to them as well. One of them said he liked it very much.

With respect to swara identification, I am working on my own baby step exercises before getting on decoding serious phrases from songs. But you all go ahead with further exercises as before. I will audit it and if I feel confident I will jump in as well.

Out of deference for your studies I have been keeping quiet. Also you guys are getting ready to fly to the motherland and very little time left to finish those shopping.s Let us go on an easy pace. I guess our guru is equally busy!

Thanks CML,
yes, I have the finals for the first trimester approaching......and shopping too...
a little music does keep me going...

VK,
:) iphone ...cool
would like to hear your attempt at varnam. Note that I did not keep talam at charanam. And each cittaswara should be repeated to finish the talam.. I have gotten better at the varnam. Will update if I find time.

I have been busy too. I am also preparing for 2 vacations. A short one to a tropical paradise of one kind. And another longer one to a tropical paradise of the Indian kind :)

I also got back on the notation editor. Very close (i know - i have been saying that for ages now ;) ). If all goes well, I may make it available as a beta release within the next 10 days.

So who would be interested in beta testing this? Please email me.

All this means is

1. You will at least try to use it often
2. You will be willing to up with rough edges :) . You will also be willing to put up with some delays in me the rough edges smoothed out (i.e depening on how much time i am able spend)
3. You will help me identify bugs etc. and also offer feedback, suggestions etc.
(Note that should be able to use the application even otherwise - although I dont know if at this point it should be open season for everyone - or just have a few people who are willing to put up with the pain and thus keep it somewhat under control)

First anyone has any suggestions of how to do this"beta testing" in an organized way? Ideally one needs to track bugs, suggestions etc. but I am not sure I am going to have the energy for that - atleast in the next few days. Everything is spent on just wrapping things so that it will (hopefully) be usable.

I would appreciate any feedback - please email me.

Arun

Dear kind kind people,

Would you please satisfy my persistence in looking for keys to the Carnatic Music.

I am trying to find an mp3 example of Mayamalavagowla basic sargam intonation and appreciate you deeply for help.

Thanks!

FYI: The topic of discussion in post #552 and few posts before and after that is the subject of my latest blog entry: http://sunson.wordpress.com/2008/10/06/ ... avarohana/

Any mistakes are unintentional (and I would love to be able to correct them - so pl. let me know)

Thanks
Arun
