Celebrating Ten Years on the App Store! This first-of-its-kind Carnatic Metronome has grown from strength to strength with constant updates & a growing list of features!

Talanome is a full-featured, intuitive, easy to use Metronome app (for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch) for every Carnatic musician, dancer, teacher and student of Carnatic Music and Dance!

Experience some of the awesome features of the Talanome App with this "lite" (but still feature-full) version that brings you the ability to play the most common Carnatic Talam, Adi Talam, without any ads, restrictions or restraints in this FREE version! Upgrade to the full version to unlock the myriad other options and features!

With Talanome Lite's Precision Sound Engine giving you precise timing at any tempo, you get:

* Choice from 20 to 350 Aksharas per minute, with fine grained control over tempo and the ability to easily change the kalam by speeding up or slowing down the tempo by a factor of 2.
* With the “Tap Tempo” feature, you can tap out the rhythm and Talanome Lite will set it to the appropriate value!
* play with/without Nadai and change Kalai to help with practice.
* A unique visual representation of the tala using animation to facilitate following along with the beat. Keep track of the beat and follow along with a visual representation of the Talam and bold beat numbers or counting phrases - switch between different representations by double tapping the Tala Visualizer.
* Control the volume level directly from the app. Turn down the volume completely if you only want visual cues.
* Get detailed information about the Tala, including a Tala Demo Video
* Learn more about Carnatic Talas in the reference section
* Fits in your pocket - no bulky boxes to carry around and it is a multi-functional educational tool to boot!

Like any good metronome, Talanome Lite keeps a precise beat, which is important when you are trying to hone your skills, either while singing, playing a percussion instrument or dancing. With Talanome's sound engine, you get the precision of timing that you need and ought to expect!

Here are some of the features you get by getting the full-featured Talanome App (with the same advanced sound engine giving you precision timing to hone your skills):

* Same Precision Sound Engine

* all 108 Ashtottara Sata Talas,
