User Manual

MIDI Editor

The MIDI editor allows you to create or edit a MIDI event. This lets you specify the type of MIDI event to send or receive, as well as the optional channel, value, and other parameters pertaining to the selected MIDI event.

OnSong supports a number of types of MIDI events. Pick one of these types to learn how to configure it for you needs.

Control

This is a control change (or CC) which is typically sent from a foot pedal, knob, or slider. You can pick a channel and value to send for the control change event.

Program

This is a program change (or PC) event which is used for selecting different sounds or modules on a device. You must pick a channel as well as the program. Optionally you can choose bank select information.

Note
