the program is called SwarShala. It can indeed create wave loops of any tabla composition (other drums and string instruments as well). We also have the loops in wave/MIDI formats in a separate CD called TaalTrax, along with the MIDI patches to play them.
You can find more information and download a demo at www.swarsystems.com.
I downloaded the demo a long time ago and man, I just love the proggie. It's just amazing. I might buy it and I'll definitely buy it if Swar Systems offer a student discount, or anything to knock off the price a bit. Well, guess I'll keep on searching for free samples in the meantime. Thanks for the help y'all. Take care.
It has always been our policy to grant discounts when needed. If you are a student, feel free to contact us and let us know what product you want and what price you could afford. I am sure we can give you an adequate discount.
SwarShala uses DirectX, the multimedia components from Microsoft that are delivered as a standard since Windows 95. If you don't have these installed, or if they are corrupted, then you should (re-)install the latest version (8.0) from www.microsoft.com/directx.
In the meantime, you can switch to Deferred mode, where the low-level sound functions are used. To do that, select the Deferred Mode button in the Tools � Options � Playback tab and restart the program.
I hope this helps. If you have any other problems, feel free to ask on firstname.lastname@example.org or check the FAQ page on the site.
