Text-Based Files

Imported Files

All other supported file types can be imported and viewed "as-is" from within OnSong. The song editor also supports conversion of many of these file types to text.

Media Files

MIDI Files

OnSong has powerful MIDI capabilities and can even be used as a SysEx librarian. These file formats are automatically added to the MIDI Globals library.

ZIP Files

OnSong can also import ZIP files that contain one or more supported file formats. This is useful for import more than one file at a time from an external resource or app.
