Here’s a handy demo of the Replay feature on MusicGurus…
What is Replay?
Replay is an interactive sheet music player that syncs notes with an audio backing track. While you’re playing along, you can adjust tempos, loop bars and switch between backing and performance tracks. It’s the perfect practise tool!
What products are available?
We currently have drums and guitar available with piano and keys coming soon. https://cloud.rslawards.com/shop
Where can I use Replay?
Anywhere with good internet access.
How much does Replay cost?
All products are priced individually. Once you have paid for a Replay product, there is no limit on how many times you can use it.
You can find individual prices on the individual instrument pages: https://cloud.rslawards.com/shop
Do I need internet to use Replay?
Replay is a streaming product so you do need to be connected to the internet to use the products. However, once a product has been loaded in your browser, including all the audio files, you can disconnect from the internet and use it offline provided you don’t close your browser.
Does Replay work offline?
Not yet, however if you open your pieces when you are connected to the internet, caching should allow you to use Replay once you’re offline so long as you don’t close the tab.
Do I need a special adapter, cable or microphone?
No, all you need is a desktop, laptop or mobile with audio capability.
Can I download Replay?
Replay is a streaming only product, you can access it 24/7 by logging into your account at musicgurus.com
Is there an app available?
An app is something we’re adding to our roadmap but it’s not available just yet.
How do I access my Replay product?
When you purchase a Replay product from https://cloud.rslawards.com/shop, you will automatically be given a link to access the product on the MusicGurus site. If you don’t have an account with MusicGurus, one will automatically be created for you.
How do I change my MusicGurus username, password or email?
Contact the Music Gurus customer service team on firstname.lastname@example.org
Why is the audio taking a long time to load?
Sometimes the audio can take a while to load due to internet speeds.
The audio backing tracks won’t play. How can I fix it?
If your audio tracks won’t play, make sure that you have a strong internet connection, reload the page, and be patient to give the audio files plenty of time to load (the files are quite large and sometimes load more slowly if internet connection speed is slow)
How do I report a problem?
You can contact the Music Gurus customer service team by emailing email@example.com

How do I add additional products?

Does Replay count as an official Rockschool purchase for exams?
Yes – customers also purchase the digital downloads of the Rockschool books alongside Replay, so they can use the same method of proof of purchase as we have for digital books.
Does Replay have the same content as an official Rockschool book?
Replay contains the performance pieces found at each grade in the available Rockschool books. The technical exercises and supporting tests can only be found in the digital downloads or hard copies of the books.
Can you adjust speed in increments smaller than 10%?
Yes you can get the speed you want by typing the numerical value directly into the ‘speed’ box.
Can I change the midi instrument for synthetic playback?
Yes you can. If you click on the instrument name to the left of the tab, it will open up settings and you can change the instrument here.
Can I use Replay in an exam?
Yes, as long as your device has a 3.5mm (mini-jack) output. Not all examination centres have Wi-Fi or good mobile signal, so candidates should not rely on being able to access Replay.
If using the Replay player during an exam, the “Advanced settings” must be set in a way that allow the Replay Player bar numbers to reflect the bar numbers written in the Rockschool book. This will sometimes not be the case if the ‘Expand repeats’ box is ticked. The advanced settings are located via the cog in the bottom right hand corner of the Replay player, then “Advanced…“. The reason for this is to eliminate inconsistencies between yours and the examiners notation for when General Musicianship Questions are asked.
