Carnatic Music with HTML5 Audio

Rasika software works only with Windows OS. I am in the process of exploring the use of HTML5 Audio capabilities and Javascript to provide some of Rasika as web pages. Use with Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome or Edge (Windows 10). Pages using Windows Audio API will not work with Internet Explorer.

Introductory and Melam modules of Rasika have been combined and the first page of the series is at Other pages can be accessed from the first page or from list of contents. They will work OK in PC's Laptops and most Tablets and Smart phones. For offline use, download, unzip (extract) all files into one folder and start with intro1.htm by double clicking. If your default browser is Internet Explorer, right click on the link above and use 'Open with' in the pop up menu to open it in Chrome or Firefox (For use with Internet Exploreer download , unzip the contents into a single folder and start with intro1.htm. As the web pages in this zip file use .mp3 files instead of WebaudioAPI they will work in Internet Explorer also. Please read the 'Readme.txt' file included in the zip file.)

Raagam module of Rasika gives textual descriptions of 111 raagams with audio-visuals of Aarohanam/Avarohanam illustrated on keyboard type of sketch and audio of typical phrases with notation. Of these, 50+ raagams are now made available here as web pages, with the added feature of showing Arohanam/Avarohanam notes on a Veena type sketch in addition to Keyboard sketch when the audio plays. (More raagams will be added in due course). Click this link to access the page which has a menu for individual raagams. These pages use WebAudioAPI and will work with Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome but not with Internet Explorer. Will work with Edge browser in Windows10. Also works in most tablets and smart phones if Firefox, Chrome,Safari or Android browser is used. For off-line use download extract all the files into a single folder and open 'ragas.htm'.

Thaalam module of Rasika is now available as web pages. The first page is From this page you can go to other pages sequentieally or using the contents. The pages work well with PC/Laptop/Tablets but there may be latency with smartphones. Sometimes after the thaalam runs one round the latency may disappear.

Thalam Generator is available at (Works with Firefox, Chrome, Edge and Safari and may work with other browsers latest versions which support WebAudioApi). It has visual and audio for all the 35 'sooladhi thaalams',khanda chapu and misra chapu thaalams, Aadhi and modern version of Roopakam. For offline use download and use Extract the files to a single folder and open talameter.htm in supported browsers listed above. This also may not work OK with older smartphones and slow internet connections.(If this does not work in your browser try tal.htm and for Offline use.)

Gaayaka-Carnatic Notation Player is available at as a web page. It uses the present more popular 'S R G M...' format and has most of the facilities of Windows based Gaayaka.
