File Sharing

File sharing is designed to move files on and off of your device via the Finder (macOS) or iTunes (Windows)

Connecting Your Device

To use file sharing, connect your device to your computer with the supplied USB sync/charge cable. Next, open Finder on macOS. You can then find the device listed in a Finder window under Locations similar to connecting a USB thumb drive. You can select it retrieve files.

Finding Files

Once in this screen, tap on the Files tab and select OnSong. You can then add files to the OnSong file sharing folder by dragging and dropping those files into this screen, or you can likewise copy files from here in the same manner. You can then select multiple files and delete, etc using the delete key on your keyboard or by right-clicking for a context menu.

Remember that you can select multiple files by holding down the SHIFT or CTRL (PC) or command (Mac) keys. You can also delete files in this list by selecting them and pressing the DELETE key on your computer keyboard.


It is important to note that if you export an OnSong Backup file to File Sharing, you need to save the file to your computer. If the backup file is located on your device and the device is lost, stolen, broken, or inaccessible for any reason, you will not be able to retrieve your OnSong library.
