User Manual


While autoscroll is fairly straightforward, there are a few options that can be customized. This section of live bar settings allows you to customize key aspects of autoscroll.

Autoscroll Continually

Autoscroll is normally used to scroll one song from top to bottom over a given duration. This means that you do need to switch to a new song in your set and toggle autoscroll on for each song.

When Autoscroll Continually is enabled, it allows OnSong to scroll through a song in the set and once then bottom of the song is reached, continue to the next song in the set. After an optional delay, autoscrolling continues. This allows an entire set to be navigated continually and hands-free.

Options include:

  • Off disables continuous autoscroll, allowing only one song to be scrolled and requiring the user to navigate to the next song to continue. Default.
  • Immediately switches to the next song in a set and immediately begins autoscrolling with no discernible delay.
  • After n second(s) gives an optional duration of time to wait until autoscroll begins. This can be 1 to 5 seconds and then 10 to 30 seconds in increments of 5 seconds.

Autoscroll Trigger

Triggers allow an action to be perform simultaneously with another action. An autoscroll trigger perform an additional function when autoscroll is started. This can be used to start autoscrolling and backing track playback at the same time with a single action.

Options include:

  • None no other action is performed. Default.
  • Audio toggles the audio playback on when autoscroll starts.
  • Metronome toggles the metronome on when autoscroll starts.

Vertical Position Color

When autoscrolling is occurring, it may be difficult to judge where you are located in a song. OnSong uses a colored line on the left side of the screen to indicate the relative position of the chord chart at the given time. The shape will align with the approximate place in the song according to the lyrics and chords.

You can change the color of this line with this option to one of the following options:

  • None turns off the vertical position ruler.
  • Red displays the ruler in red. Default.
  • Orange displays the ruler in orange.
  • Green displays the ruler in green.
  • Blue displays the ruler in blue.
  • Purple displays the ruler in purple.
  • Pink displays the ruler in pink.
  • Grey displays the ruler in grey.

Automatically Change Sections

By default, this is turned on. This means that sections will be automatically selected as linear autoscroll is performed which will change lyrics or send MIDI commands. You can turn this off if you intend to control section selection manually.
