Installing Recordex Driver and Xpress Software
- Access the Recordex training and support site.
- Scroll down and click on ‘Simplicity Touch & Xpress.’
- You’ll be asked to choose which generation of Recordex board you use. You have a Gen. 3, so you’ll select the option on the left.
- Next, you’ll find a link to the full owner’s manual. You can download this if you want it. Otherwise, scroll to the section for SimplicityTouch Software & Drivers and select the first option for OS X (Macbooks) TouchScreen Driver.
- Click on the ‘Download’ button and follow any prompts.
- Once downloaded, locate the file and open it.
