Fusion music composers

World music composers will also acknowledge SwarShala as the best tool to create tracks of most Indian instruments for their compositions. Version 3.1 provides them with a Tracks view on which they can sequence rhythmic/melodic components to create long tracks which can then be exported as wave/aiff or MIDI files. Also those who are more familiar with the western notation will be able to switch to a standard Piano Roll view.
