The MG Rec & Play software application enables high-quality recording, as well as fast and easy playback of songs and sound effects, by simply connecting your iPhone/iPad to any MG Series XU model. This intuitive application can be used for a wide range of purposes such as recording songwriting sessions, band rehearsals, and live gigs, or providing background music or sound effects for live concert or entertainment events, or parties.

Simple High Quality Recording

The audio recorder function allows you to record 2 tracks from the stereo bus on the MG Series XU models in high-quality WAV format. The sampling rate can be selected from 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, and 96 kHz depending on your requirements. The simple, user-friendly interface is designed to allow visual monitoring of the recording settings and status, as well as providing users with instantaneous playback of tracks they've just laid down, which is particularly useful for sound sketching or song composition.

* The maximum recording time depends on the available space on your iPhone/iPad

Instant Playback Function Ideal for Live Events

The audio player function features 9 separate banks with 8 tiles that can each be assigned up to 8 songs or sound effects from your iPhone/iPad music library. This provides users with high quality playback of up to 72 songs/ sound effects by simply touching the assigned tile image of each corresponding audio file. This instantaneous playback afforded by MG Rec & Play lends valuable flexibility to live performance applications requiring background music , triggered backing tracks, musical accompaniment, and parties or entertainment functions that require the use of sound effects.

*You cannot use audio recorder and audio player function at the same time.
