Upcoming Features in Haathi Carnatic Editor Version 3.0

  1. The primary major new feature in Haathi Carnatic Editor 3.0 is the support for rendering audio for your Carnatic music. As long as you follow certain rules, you can click the “Play” button and hear the song you’ve notated! Use this feature to play/sing along with your notation, or to confirm that you’ve written the notation correctly. Here are notes on how you can use the new audio rendering feature:
    1. You must use the Song information block (Type 1 or Type 2) to define the raga of the song, and you must define the Arohanam or Avarohanam of the raga.
    2. You must define the arohanam and avarohanam using precise notes like R1, R2, R3, G1, G2, etc., as that’s the only way the software will know what note to play when it encounters an abstract note like R or G.
    3. Your notation document has only one arohanam and avarohanam definition in it. In other words, Haathi Carnatic Editor does not currently support rending audio for notation documents where a song uses multiple ragams
    4. The current version of Haathi Carnatic Editor is not capable of identifying ascending phrases, descending phrases or zigzag (vakra) phrases. Thus, Haathi Carnatic Editor currently can only render an abstract note (e.g. R) if the arohanam/avarohanam of the raga uses the same precise variation (e.g. R1) of that abstract note. When a song is in a ragam like Bhairavi (which has D2 in the arohanam and D1 in the Avarohanam), every single use of D in the notation document must be explicitly defined using a subscript so that Haathi Carnatic Editor knows which note (D1 or D2) to render. See screenshot below showing D in Bhairavi song being always depicted by D1 or D2 in the notation document so that the software knows which D to render as audio:

    5. The audio rendering done by Haathi Carnatic Editor is akin to playing plain notes on a piano – in other words there is currently no support for rendering gamakams due to the complexity of different types of gamakas.
    6. There are two toolbar buttons (Play and Stop) for playing and stopping the audio rendering and also a dropdown to control the speed at which the audio is rendered. The speed is defined in Beats per Minute (BPM). Keyboard shortcuts are CTRL+SHIFT+P for the Play button and CTRL+SHIFT+S for the Stop button. See screenshot below for a reference for these new controls in the toolbar:

    7. When you click the “Play” button, Haathi Carnatic Editor will play the current selection of notes (if there is a selection) or start playing from the current cell onwards until the end of the document is reached.
    8. While audio is being rendered, Haathi Carnatic Editor will visually show which cell(s) are being played at any given time by showing the cell as selected as shown in the screenshot below:
    9. Because certain songs are ideally rendered at certain tempos, the rendering speed you specify in the toolbar above is a property of the notation document. Whenever you open a particular notation document, Haathi Carnatic Editor will reset the rendering speed in the toolbar to the value you last specified when saving the notation document.
    10. You can set the audio rendering speed in the above toolbar to any value in the range 20 bpm (really slow) to 600 bpm (really fast).
    11. There is a new Edit->Options menu which will allow you to choose the base shruthi for the audio rendering as well as the instrument you want to use. Keyboard shortcut for Edit->Options is F4. as shown in the screenshot below:

    12. The shruthi and instrument you specify in the above window is a global application-level setting (not a document level setting)
  2. Based upon feedback, we’ve made numerous font related improvements in Haathi Carnatic Editor 3.0:
    1. The 6 fonts supported in Haathi Carnatic editor have been improved. The dots and dashes above the characters have been made more prominent and the gap between these diacritics and the main character has been improved to look more appeasing.
    2. In previous version(s) of Haathi Carnatic Editor, the software determined the font size automatically depending upon how much text you put into a cell and how much the font would need to be shrunk by to ensure the text fits in the cell when printed. This caused users to have different notation documents with different font sizes. Beginning with this release, you can now have precise control over the font as well as the font size used in your notation document. With this feature, you can now compile a collection of notation documents or a notation book with consistent font size in your entire collection or book. To adjust the font size, choose your font size and click away (anywhere else in the window) or press ENTER and the notation document will be rendered in the specified font size. See screenshot below that shows the font name and font size controls in the toolbar:

    3. The font you choose is now stored as one of the properties of the notation document. Whenever you open a particular notation document, it will be rendered using the font name and size that was used at the time the notation document was saved.
    4. A side effect of giving the user precise font size control is that the user can not put more text in a cell than can fit in the cell, in which case the text will continue to bleed into the next cell. While having the text bleed into the next cell is often the desired outcome anyway, there is typically no concern. However, as a precaution, Haathi Carnatic Editor will provide the following warning when you attempt to print or preview a document which contains cells with long text in them:


      If you want to see which cell has text too long to fit within the cell, click Yes to the above prompt, and Haathi Carnatic Editor will highlight the offending cell for your convenience as shown below:

    5. Upon popular choice, “Haathi Carnatic – Fira Sans” has now been established as the default font for any newly created documents in Haathi Carnatic Editor. Previously created documents will continue to use the font they were created with but you can open the previous documents and change the font to “Haathi Carnatic – Fira Sans” if you wish.
  3. Haathi Carnatic Editor 3.0 supports custom rhythm pattern (section) add-on packs, which will soon be available from Haathi Software.
  4. Licensing improvements, price changes, and volume discounts.
    1. Haathi Carnatic Editor now supports subscription licensing.  You pay a low subscription fee of $4.99/month and you can use Haathi Carnatic Editor as long as you maintain an active subscription.  You will also get future updates for free as long as you maintain an active subscription.
    2. For those who want to try Haathi Carnatic Editor without paying the large upfront fee, you can now subscribe for 1 month for $4.99 and try out the product – and cancel the subscription if you don’t like the product, or continue to the use the product and maintain your subscription.
    3. The cost of a perpetual license of Haathi Carnatic Editor for 1 Windows machine is now $69.99 (one time purchase) and includes all future updates for free.
    4. Upon popular request, we now offer volume discounts when you buy multiple licenses of Haathi Carnatic Editor, such as for a family or for a music school.  You can now purchase two licenses for $99.99 or three licenses for $129.99.
  5. The following new types of sections are now supported in Haathi Carnatic Editor 3.0:
    1. Adi thalam chathusra gathi sections (1 per line)
    2. Adi thalam chathusra gathi sections (retta kalai)
    3. Adi thalam – Khanda Gathi sections
    4. Adi thalam – Misra Gathi sections
    5. Ata thalam – Khanda Jaathi (1st Speed) – Notes only section
    6. Jhampa thalam – Mishra Jathi (1st Speed) – Notes only section
    7. Khanda Eka talam sections
    8. Eka thalam (2nd speed, 2 per line) – Khanda Jaathi sections
    9. Eka thalam (2nd speed, 1 per line) – Khanda Jaathi sections
  6. Other improvements:
    1. Numerous Undo related bug fixes
    2. Minor updates to sections to improve alignment, cell width, and cell spacing
    3. You can now easily access the list of all keyboard shortcuts used in Haathi Carnatic Editor by going to the Help -> Shortcuts menu item.

New Features in Haathi Carnatic Editor Version 2.5

  1. The primary major new feature in Haathi Carnatic Editor 2.5 is the support for undo & redo. Any action you take,
    such as adding sections, deleting sections, editing sections, re-ordering sections, bolding, underlining, deleting cell content, changing octave of notes, etc can be undone / redone as you would expect to do in modern front office applications. Use the CTRL+Z shortcut for undo and the CTRL+Y shortcut for redo.
  2. The secondary major new feature in Haathi Carnatic Editor 2.5 is support for karvai shortcuts. Many times when notating Carnatic music we have to type a sequence of commas to represent karvais or sustained notes. Now you can do that in Haathi Carnatic Editor just by typing in a note and a digit between 2 and 9. For instance, the below screen shot shows what happens when you type the note R and then type a 4, which caused 3 additional commas to get inserted.

  3. The third major new feature in Haathi Carnatic Editor 2.5 is support for multiple fonts. Users now have a choice between 6 fonts. The font applies to the entire document and you can use different fonts for different documents. Haathi Carnatic Editor will remember the last font you used and automatically use that font by default on any new documents you create. To choose the font for the current document, just pick one of the available fonts from the Edit->Fonts menu as shown below.


    You can see a sample notation section rendered below in the 6 different fonts supported in Haathi Carnatic Editor 2.5.

  4. The fourth major new feature in Haathi Carnatic Editor 2.5 is support for exporting the notation document in image format (JPEG) so that it can easily be shared on social media sites like FaceBook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Twitter, etc. To export a document, choose the Exort to Image option from the File menu as shown below:


    If you export a notation document that spans multiple pages, Haathi Carnatic Editor will automatically export one image file for each page of your document as shown below:

  5. Other improvements made in Haathi Carnatic Editor 2.5:
    1. In case you have any technical issues with Haathi Carnatic Editor, you can now send the log files to Haathi’s support team by using the “Send Error Logs” shortcut available for you in the Windows Start menu under “Haathi Software” as shown in the screenshot below:

    2. Haathi Carnatic Editor now remembers the pinned/unpinned docking state of the built-in media player pane as well as remembers its size. Both the docking state as well as the media player pane size are restored automatically when the application is restarted.
    3. You can now easily open recently edited files by clicking on the small down-arrow next to the Open toolbar button as shown in the picture below:

    4. Likewise, you can now easily open recently opened media files in the Media Player pane by clicking on the small down-arrow next to the Open toolbar button as shown in the picture below:

    5. In this release we’ve added visual rendering of the audio signals in the Media Player as shown by the bars in the picture below:

    6. The Media Player pane now features an easy way to clear or update A and B markers. To clear the A / B markers, just click on the red X icons next to the A or B markers in the image below. Alternatively, you can also just click on the “Mark A position” or “Mark B position” toolbar buttons in the Media Player to over-write previously set values for the A or B markers. Lastly, if you mark an A position that is greater than the currently marked B position, the B position will automatically be cleared. Likewise, if you mark a B position that is lesser than the currently marked A position, the A position will automatically be cleared.

    7. Lastly, a minor improvement has been made to the intelligent left/right shift operation. When you shift cells left or right using the built-in shifting feature, the currently selected cell before and after the shift operation will be the same cell, allowing you to perform multiple left/right shift operations consecutively.

New Features in Haathi Carnatic Editor Version 2.0

    1. The primary major new feature in Haathi Carnatic Editor 2.0 is the support for a built-in media player to aid in notation writing! With the built in audio/video media player right inside the notation editor, you can play an audio/video file from within Haathi Carnatic Editor while notating your music document. This allows you to focus on writing notation without having to constantly switch back-and-forth between Haathi Carnatic Editor and another media player application to play the audio/video that you’re trying to write notation from. Most importantly, the process of writing notation from audio/video files is made even more faster with the built-in A-B/loop functionality that allows you to mark a particular section/sangathi of the song and keep looping it while you carefully write the notation for that part of the song! When you’re done with that section/sangathi of the song, you can just move the A-B markers to the next section/sangathi and write the notation for the next section/sangathi! See screenshot below for the features related to the media player pane in Haathi Carnatic Editor:

    2. The secondary major new feature in Haathi Carnatic Editor 2.0 is support for intelligent left-shifting and right-shifting of the notation. Many times when notation is being written, we end up at the end of the avarthanam (beat cycle) and realize that we must either have put too many karvais (indicated by spaces or commas in the notation) in some spots or too few karvais because we either have empty cells at the end that shouldn’t exist or not enough cells at the end to put in all the notation that must fit. When this occurs, you can now find the spot where you need to insert a karvai and just right click in that cell and choose “Shift Cells Right” and that will cause all notation content in the document from that spot onwards to move right by one cell, and you can then insert the karvai (comma) there that you forgot in the first place. Likewie, if you have inserted too many karvais in some spot, you can delete an extra karvai by moving the entire notation to the left by one cell by choosing the “Shift Cells Left” option! This will save you a lot of time compared to doing all this shifting work manually! See screenshot below for the context menu that appears when you right click on a text or note cell:

  1. A couple minor improvements were also included in the 2.0 release:
    1. When you already have a notation document open and try to open another notation document using the File->Open menu or the associated toolbar button, the second notation document will be opened in a new window
    2. Support for multiple fonts has been added as an experimental feature. Please Contact Haathi Support to find out more about this experimental feature!

    New Features in Haathi Carnatic Editor Version 1.3

      1. The most important improvement made in this release is the support for automatic octave detection! Just keep typing the swarams/notes in your notation document and Haathi Carnatic Editor will automatically detect the octave in which your notes are supposed to be in, thus making the dots above or dots below appearing automatically. The software will guess this correctly almost always – but in very rare cases it may guess it wrongly, in which you can just use the Octave-Shift-Up and Octave-Shift-Down buttons to manually change the octave of the note to the desired octave! Just imagine, you type S R S D and the D automatically gets the dot below it! Or you type D N S R and the S and R automatically get the dots above the notes! It’s really cool and everyone who saw beta releases of this feature was awestruck and asked “Wow! How can the software figure that out!?” Below is a screenshot that shows the the Mohanam varnam having been typed and the software automatically guessed every single transition from the middle to higher octave, higher to middle octave, middle to lower octave, and lower to middle octave!

    The new Auto Octave feature mentioned above can be turned on/off using a menu item. There is also a new indicator pane in the status bar of the application to quickly show whether Auto Octave functionality is turned on or off. See screenshot below.

    1. The second most important improvement made in this release is the support for automatic text expansions using shortcuts. This feature is primarily designed for percussion students, teachers, and professionals who can notate their mridangam, ghatam, kanjira lessons or creations, and for dance teachers and composers who want to notate their jathis. Turn on automatic text expansions by choosing a text expansion scheme (such as “Mridangam”) in the toolbar as shown below.

      You can then go to a text cell type, type ‘t’ and you will see all pre-defined shortcut expansions that start with ‘t’. You can then for instance type ‘8’ or use the mouse to choose the expansion selected below:

      And voila! With just two key strokes ‘t’ and ‘8’, you get ‘tha ka tha ri ki ta tha ka’ in 8 cells as shown below!

      You can use F6 to toggle between turning the shortcut expansions feature on and off!

      You can even create your own customized text expansions for patterns that you use frequently and you can assign these patterns your own customized shortcuts. Contact Haathi Support to find out how!

    2. When you try to insert a new section, you’ll see the “Insert Section” popup. This window has been enhanced now with two tabs “All” and “Recent”. The “All” tab allows you to easily search for sections by typing part of the section’s name and easily finding sections whose names contain the search term. See screenshot below:


      The “Recent” tab allows you to easily insert a section that was recently used, as shown in the screenshot below:

    3. One of the most useful features in this update is the ability to automatically shrink the font of the notated document so that all text in cells is visible on the printed document without the text getting clipped. See these two screenshots for how a document’s font size automatically gets scaled down so that all the text is visible in the printed document without getting clipped:Sample jathi in edit mode in the Haathi Carnatic editor:

      The same sample jathi rendered in print preview mode where font size automatically shrunk to ensure none of the text in the cells gets clipped:
    4. You can now easily change the cell selection (e.g. to change color, or to change the octave of notes in the cells, or to underline, etc.) by using the arrow keys. From any cell, just use the SHIFT together with any of the four arrow keys to change your cell selection, similar to how you would do in typical Office applications like Microsoft Excel or Word. See screenshots below for an illustration of this feature:


    5. There is a new menu item that allows inserting page breaks anywhere in the document. When you insert a page break, the following section will start printing on a new page rather than continue on the current page, similar to how page break works in Microsoft Office applications!


      When you insert Page Break sections, they will appear in the document with a black cell background as shown below:

    6. You can now print a user-specified selection of pages as shown in the screenshot below::

    7. You can now choose between standard size margins and small margins. The smaller margins allow more of the page to be used for the notations. See the screenshot below for the newly available menu options:

    8. There is now a legend in the status bar showing which cell background colors represent which types of cells:
    9. Some users were not able to print from Haathi Carnatic Editor after they upgraded to Windows 8 or Windows 10. This bug has now been fixed.

    New Features in Haathi Carnatic Editor Version 1.2

    1. The most important improvement made in this release is the support for double-underlining. There is a new button on the toolbar that allows you to double-underline one or more selected cells in the document.


      Double-underlining allows you to create notation documents for songs where there are sections of the song that are to be rendered in third speed. Below is an example of a section of a document containing parts (shown in red) that need to be rendered in third speed. As a reminder, you can also use the single underline functionality (as shown below) to mark any sections of the document that are to be rendered in second speed.

    2. The shortcut to access the double underline functionality is ALT + U. As a reminder, the shortcut to access the single underline functionality is CTRL + U as is typical in many Windows applications.
    3. The application’s toolbar (as shown in the image below) now has a button to quickly access Print Preview. As a reminder, the shortcut to access the print preview functionality is CTRL + F2.

    4. The application has now a new status pane indicator (see image below) to display whether auto-tab functionality is enabled or not. When auto-tab is enabled, the application will automatically move the cursor to the next cell after you type a single note character like S, R, G, etc. into a note cell. It is useful to leave auto-tab on when you are writing notations for songs where most note cells only have one note in them. If majority of the note cells in your document will contain more than one note character, then you will find it more convenient to leave the auto-tab function off and instead press the tab key manually each time you wish to move the cursor to the next cell.

    5. The shortcut to turn on/off the auto-tab mode mentioned above is F2. Press F2 to turn on auto-tab mode (if it is currently off). Press F2 to turn off auto-tab mode (if it is currently on).
    6. Anyone can now get the Haathi Carnatic Reader application free from the Downloads page. The Haathi Carnatic Reader application allows you to see and print a notation document that someone else created and shared with you. Just download and install the latest version of the Haathi Carnatic Editor and run it. When you run it, you will be prompted for a license key. Click on the “Get Reader Edition” button, and enter your name and email address as prompted. A license key for the reader edition will be emailed to you within a few minutes automatically. Just copy and paste the license key from your email into the Activate License window shown below, and you’re you’re all set for viewing and printing Haathi Carnatic notation documents you receive from others or Haathi Carnatic notation documents you get from a website.

    7. Some bugs related to printing multi-line text have been resolved.

    New Features in Haathi Carnatic Editor Version 1.1

    1. The most important improvement made in this release is the support for selecting a range of cells
      and being able to perform a variety of actions on the selected cells, such as copying and pasting,
      applying bold, underline, etc. To select a range of cells:

      1. Click on the first cell in the range of cells you want to select.
      2. Then, press the SHIFT key on the keyboard and click on the last cell in the range that you want selected.
      3. You can press the SHIFT key on the keyboard and click on some other cell if you want expand or shrink the current
        selection of cells. The range of cells selected will always be from the first cell you clicked on to the most current
        cell that you SHIFT + clicked on.

      .

    2. Once you have selected a range of cells, you can perform the following operations on the selected cells:
      1. Press CTRL+C to copy the selected cells to the clipboard. You can then select a cell anywhere else in the document
        and press CTRL+V to paste the copied contents starting at that cell location. The type of cells copied into the
        clipboard must match the type of cells that begin at the currently selected cell for the paste operation to work.
        For instance, you can only copy and paste note cells into note cells, text cells into text cells, and so on. If you
        copy one row of notes (swarams) and one row of text (sahityam) for a total of two rows copied, you can only paste
        those notes and text cells into two rows somewhere else in the document where the first row contains note cells and
        the second row contains text cells. In other words, the type of the cells being copied must match
        the type of cells in the location where the paste is being attempted – pretty straight forward, right?

        HINT: If you are trying to copy an entire section, it is much easier to just click the Duplicate section button
        on the toolbar!

      2. Click on the Octave Upshift button to move all the notes among the
        selected cells to be one octave higher.
      3. Click on the Octave Downshift button to move all the notes among the
        selected cells to be one octave lower.
      4. Press the DELETE key on the keyboard to clear all the contents of all the selected cells.
      5. Press the Bold button or press CTRL+B to change the text in the
        selected cells to be bold.
      6. Press the Underline button or press CTRL+U to change the
        text in the selected cells to be underlined.
      7. Click the Font color button and select a color from the drop
        down color palette to change the font color of the text in the selected cells.
    3. The glyph of the double pipe character that marks the end of the avarthanam has been modified to have more space
      between the two pipe glyphs and gives the double pipe character a more beautiful and natural look.
    4. You can now backspace from a blank cell and the cursor will automatically go to the end of the text in the
      previous cell. Thanks to Surya Ganesan for suggesting this feature!
    5. There are now new icons to represent the default octave which will be used for notes you type into note cells. You can keep clicking
      the Default octave button repeatedly to switch the default octave to be the lower
      (mandra) octave, middle (madhya) octave, and upper
      (tara) octave.
    6. You can now change the text justification in any text, note, or label cell by clicking on the text justification
      button on the toolbar. When you click on the button, a total of three
      buttons will dropdown allowing you to choose between left justification, center justification and right justification.
    7. Occasionally, you may want to edit text associated with label cells in a document. You may for instance have two avarthanams per line and
      the particlar song you are notating has an odd number of avarthanams, and hence you may want to “blank out” the labels associated with the
      last avarthanam (the second half of the last line). You may also want to edit a label if you want to change the default text associated with a
      label to something different. To edit a label cell, just double click inside it and you’ll be prompted for the new text you want to associate
      with that label cell. You can change the text to something different from what it is, or remove it altogether.
    8. You can now press the ESCAPE key on the keyboard to close the print preview window.
    9. You can now click anywhere in the font color button to drop down the color chooser.
    10. There is a brand new and intuitive ‘Switch character variation’ button on the toolbar. Click on this
      button (or press its associated shortcut F4) whenever you want to switch between two variations of a character that you just typed. The picture below shows all the various
      character variation pairs:

    11. Version 1.0 of the Haathi Carnatic Editor supported a total of 27 types of sections. One of the major improvements in version 1.1 is the support for a much
      more exhaustive list of types of sections including coverage for many more thalams and gathis. Version 1.1 now supports a total of 62 types of sections and
      we’ll be adding more in future versions. Please email us with your request for any new type of a sections! The complete list of sections supported

    12. Based upon a popular request from customers, we have changed the licensing from an annual license ($9.99 per year) to a one time
      perpetual license fee. The cost of the perpetual license has been set to $24.99. If you have purchased the annual license and wish
      to upgrade to the perpetual license, you can do so for the difference in price ($15), but you must do so before your
      annual license expires. Please contact us at support@haathisoftware.com for instructions on how to upgrade your annual
      license to a perpetual license.

    14. The cell background colors mentioned in the above point are now also displayed in the sample sections that are displayed
      on the right side pane when choosing from the panel of sections to insert into the document in the “Insert Section” window.
    15. Like in most Windows applications, you can now drag-and-drop a Haathi Music Document (.hmd file) into the application to open
      those documents. Of course, you can also just double click on the Haathi Music Document (.hmd file) from Windows Explorer
      and cause those documents to be opened in the Haathi Carnatic Editor.
    16. When you insert a new section, it will now automatically get selected, and you can start typing in the first editable cell
      of the newly inserted section.
    17. You can now double click on a section in the left side pane of the “Insert section” window to insert that section into the
      current document.
    18. When you select “Haathi Carnatic Editor Help” from the help menu, you will now correctly be launched to the application’s help page on Haathi’s website.
    19. When you click the default octave changer buttons mentioned in #5 (TODO) above, the order of cycling between the octaves is now more intuitive, cycling between
