THE PROGRAM RUNS SLOWLY

Are you running IMR from the CD? If you are, copy IMR to your hard drive and run it from there.  

EVERYTHING WAS WORKING FINE THIS MORNING – BUT THIS AFTERNOON THERE WERE WRONG SOUNDS AND/OR IMAGES BEHAVING STRANGELY (DISAPPEARING ON TOUCH, NOT DRAGGING ETC)

Shut your computer down and restart. The ’rest’ should solve the problem. If you intend to use the program all day, shut down and restart in the middle of the day.

INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS

An instruction DVD is included with the package. This shows Cheryl demonstrating the various functions available for you to use, and how to use them. These videos are also available under the ‘Detailed Description’ tab menu on the IMR1 and IMR2 pages.

ERRATUM

There is an error in the Teachers Manual for IMR1. On p 41, the BLM is incorrect – it refers to tempo and should refer to dynamics. Download the correct page below:
