OnSong Manual

Actions Menu

The actions menu lets you navigate actions that can be triggered by physical actions like pressing a foot pedal, tapping on the screen, or from MIDI event input.

Choose Group

Actions are categorized in groups with each group featuring things that can be acted upon. Under each of these nouns are actions that can be performed on each. Tap on the icon in the upper right corner to navigate to the group instead of scrolling.

Top

The very first section contains actions that do not fit into any one group and contains default, none, and multiple.

Navigate through your song, set, or library.

User Interface

The number of available actions is displayed in the toolbar at the bottom of the list. This number may changes with each release and whether you are able to assign variable actions.
