So what’s the difference between you and Guitar Hero/Rock Band?
Guitar Hero™ and Rock Band™ are rhythm games based on clicking at the right time that requires a game console or mobile app. Magic Instruments is a standalone instrument that allows you to play your favorite songs instantly (in Magic Mode). The MI Guitar is just as easy and fun to play as Guitar Hero™ or Rock Band™, but you are actually making and playing real music, instead of playing a video game.

Do I need to have a mobile device with your app to play the instrument?
People who learn to play the MI Guitar (in either Magic Mode or Traditional Mode) can create their own original music, play popular songs, or even improvise.
Our companion mobile app on iOS and Android provides additional functionality that augments the MI Guitar’s existing features, such as lyrics and chord playing instructions to popular songs.
