Live Settings

There are a number of tools at your disposal for playing live. Instead of making only one way to perform these functions, OnSong provides options to customize your live performance. These options are divided into the following major categories:

Audio Playback

Provides options for changing the way backing tracks are played back.


Provides options to adjust how autoscroll is performed.

Chord Playback

Provides options for when and how chords are played back using the optional soundbanks or MIDI.

External Video

Use these settings to configure your setup if you are projecting lyrics, creating a virtual music stand or simply want to mirror your iPad screen.

Live Bar

The live bar provides large buttons that provide quick access to toggle common playback options. Toggle which buttons are displayed in the lower right corner.


The metronome lets you play to a click track or use it practice. Here you can set up how the metronome sounds, looks and acts.

Sound Effects

OnSong can play back audio reinforcement to certain actions such as flipping pages or connecting an external video device. This is turned off by default.
