Extracting Lehra/Nagma Jun 24, 2003 05:04 p.m.


Hi, I have several mp3's of solo tabla. I was wondering if there is any way to extract the lehra or mute the tabla? I was hoping i could use those lehra's for practice. I enjoy the lehras that ramesh mishra plays.

would have thought you are better off getting a nagma/lehra machine, the tempos of nagmas do fluctuate slightly as good nagma players respond to tabla players adjusting their tempos during performance. i guess you could sample one cycle for near 100% accuracy, if you can find a cycle with no tabla on! just be careful that there is no fluctuation within cycle.otherwise can't see how you could succesfully seperate the two from a recording.
interested to hear other views. what is the best lehra machine available these days?

I was thinking of doing the same what bob mentioned. I�m trying to find a CD with the lehra played in the beginning without the tabla player starting his solo.

If I can get this one cycle of played lehra then I can loop and change the tempo to suit my practice needs. Cubase software should be able to do the trick.

I have thought of buying a lehra machine but they are quite expensive. I would rather put a sample together and burn it on a CD. It saves me a few hundred pounds.

I would have thought that a lehra CD should be available by now. Whoever can put something together professionally their would be a lot of customers on this tabla forum. HINT HINT. ( You could make quite a lot of money )

I have a lehra machine, and honestly, the sound drives me nuts. They should be able to make a lehra machine with a sarangi or harmonium. I don't know why they have these electronic sounding things.

Bob,

This is Shiva from Mumbai, Inida...i had the same problem while practicing what i did was i learnt to lay the Lehra myself and recorded that one fine morning. Now i use it for my practice.
BTW if you can share some of the mp3 file with me that will be great.
