Triggers

Triggers perform actions when other events or actions occur. You can use triggers to perform multiple actions at once or when an action should occur.

The following triggers can be configured in this screen:

Audio Trigger

The audio trigger allows you to specify an action to perform when the audio is played from the live bar button. Options include:

  • None performs no action and scrolls down on the first press. Default.
  • Autoscroll begins autoscrolling the chord chart. Note that you can also set an autoscroll trigger to perform more than one action at a time for starting audio and autoscroll simultaneously.
  • Metronome toggles the metronome.

Autoscroll Trigger

The autoscroll trigger allows you to specify an action to perform when autoscroll is started. Options include:

  • None performs no action and scrolls down on the first press. Default.
  • Audio starts the audio track playback.
  • Metronome toggles the metronome.

Forward Pedal Trigger

The forward pedal trigger is an action to take the first time the Scroll Down foot pedal is pressed. This allows one foot pedal to have multiple uses. After the action is triggered, the pedal returns to its normal scroll down action. Options include:

  • None performs no action and scrolls down on the first press. Default.
  • Audio starts the audio track playback.
  • Autoscroll begins autoscrolling the chord chart. Note that you can also set an autoscroll trigger to perform more than one action at a time for starting audio and autoscroll simultaneously.
  • Metronome toggles the metronome

Song Change Trigger

The song change trigger starts an action when a song is loaded into the song viewer. This allows an action to take place immediately without user intervention. You can choose from:

  • None performs no action and scrolls down on the first press. Default.
  • Audio starts the audio track playback.
  • Autoscroll begins autoscrolling the chord chart. Note that you can also set an autoscroll trigger to perform more than one action at a time like starlings audio and autoscroll simultaneously.
  • Metronome toggles the metronome

Stop Triggered Event

When other actions are triggered, they will continue to function until stopped separately. In the event that you want to stop the triggered event when autoscroll stops, turn this option on. This works as follows when enabled:

  • When audio is triggered from an autoscroll trigger and autoscrolling is stopped, the backing track is also paused or stopped according to the audio behavior.
  • When the metronome is triggered from an autoscroll trigger and autoscrolling is stopped, the metronome is also stopped.
