Carnatic Editor

Haathi Carnatic Editor Version 2.0 just recently released! Check out all the new features!

Haathi Carnatic Editor is a revolutionary Carnatic music editing software! Here are the main features of Haathi Carnatic Editor:

  • Super easy and intuitive to use Carnatic music notation software
  • Built in templates to enter notation in various talams / gathis
  • 200% faster than using a standard spreadsheet
  • Students can notate documents by listening to audio / video
  • Teachers can create notation with their specific sangathis
  • Standard notation for varnams/krithis in published books will be different than how your teacher teaches it due to style, bani, and padangam differences. Use this software to notate music exactly as you’re learning it
  • In initial manodharma learning stages, students can notate characteristic phrases used in raagams, phrases used in the alapana, as well as kalpana swaram and neraval patterns
  • Easily add new sangathis to existing notation documents (created with Haathi Carnatic Editor) as you become a more advanced student
  • Utilizes custom-designed Haathi Carnatic font with special characters:
    • Supports 3 octaves of notes
    • Supports subscript variations
    • Supports long vowels and diagraph characters
  • Automatic tabbing (you don’t have to manually press TAB after typing each note/swara!)
  • Automatic octave detection! Imagine typing D N S R and the S and R automatically have dots above them! Don’t worry, you can manually switch octaves in the extremely rare case that the automatic octave detection detected an octave different from what you intended.
  • Support for underlining and double underlining for second and third speed notations
  • Support for automatic text expansions for fast notation of percussion patterns. You can define your own shortcuts, like ‘t8’ expanding to ‘tha ka tha ri ki ta tha ka’ in eight consecutive cells! How much faster can you notate your percussion lessons or dance jathis if you can type a couple keystrokes and have it automatically fill many cells?
  • Built in media player to allow you to write notation using an audio or video file as the basis for your notation document. Mark A/B positions and loop between A-B and quickly notate that section of the audio/video and then move on to the next section.
  • When you realize that you’ve forgotten to insert the right amount of karvai in a particular spot of the notation document, or when you realize that you’ve inserted too much karvai in a particular spot, you can now easily shift all the notes of the document left or right with one click!
