User Manual


Certain MIDI equipment can perform more advanced tasks by receiving system-exclusive or "SysEx" commands. These are specific bytes of information that can be sent using the command MIDI connection.

In OnSong, you choose the SysEx command and then tap on the value row to set the value of the SysEx. This is entered using a text-entry screen in the menu, allowing you to view and type the SysEx values. Values are typically entered as hexadecimal numbers referring to bytes to be sent over MIDI.

Note: You will need to contact the manufacturer of your MIDI equipment to determine what should be written in these fields. The nature of SysEx deems that these are system-exclusive commands and not in the common MIDI command lexicon.
