User Manual


Sources are hardware or software devices from which OnSong can receive MIDI. For instance, you can connect a MIDI adapter to the port on your device to receive MIDI from that device. Check out the MIDI Integration feature for more details on how to connect MIDI devices to your iOS device for use in OnSong.

This screen displays a list of MIDI sources as provided by CoreMIDI. These may include both direct connection to a device via an adapter, a WiFi network session, virtual connections made available by specific apps like OnSong, or a Bluetooth MIDI device. Since Bluetooth MIDI devices need to be paired, tap on the Bluetooth icon in the upper right corner to pair Bluetooth MIDI Devices.

Sources are automatically added to the list as they are discovered and are enabled by default. To prevent OnSong from receiving MIDI from new sources, tap on the row to remove the checkmark. OnSong will only receive MIDI from sources that display a checkmark.
