Bluetooth Page Turners
Bluetooth page turner pedals allow you to remote-control the scrolling position and page turning of your songs.
Go to your operating system preferences to connect a Bluetooth page turner. (The connection will be controlled by the iOS or macOS device.)
Bluetooth page turner pedals send the same 'up arrow', 'down arrow', 'left arrow' and 'right arrow' key commands as a wireless Bluetooth computer keyboard. Song One reacts to these commands in the following way:

Up & Down Arrow Key Commands

Up (default):
  • Jump several lines backwards while the lyrics are being auto-scrolled.
  • Jump to the preceding page when the lyrics are shown in the page flip mode.
Down (default):
  • Start the playback of a paused song.
  • Jump several lines forwards while the lyrics are being auto-scrolled.
  • Jump to the next song of a set once the song has reached the end.
  • Jump to the following page when the lyrics are shown in the page flip mode.
You may change the default functions of the up & down arrow key commands to:
  • increase/decrease scrolling speed.
  • pause & continue scrolling.
  • send MIDI queue events.
Go to the app preferences (Settings -> 'Bluetooth & MIDI') to select the desired option.
Jumping forwards or backwards will not affect the playback of the optional audio backing track linked to the song. (See song info to learn more about backing tracks.)
When Song One is not in the play mode you may use the 'up' and 'down' commands to jump forwards and backwards in the lyrics.

Left & Right Arrow Key Commands

Left (default):
  • Jump to the previous song in a set list when play mode is active.
Right (default):
  • Jump to the next song in a set list when play mode is active.
You may change the default functions of the left & right arrow key commands to:
  • increase/decrease scrolling speed.
  • pause & continue scrolling.
  • send MIDI queue events.
Go to the app preferences (Settings -> 'Bluetooth & MIDI') to select the desired option.

On-Screen Keyboard (iOS)

iOS identifies connected Bluetooth page turner pedals as an external keyboard and will hide the iOS on-screen keyboard. When the iOS keyboard is hidden Song One displays a custom on-screen keyboard.
Disable Song One's on-screen keyboard when using an external Apple keyboard. Go to Song One's settings/preferences (under 'Devices' -> 'Mobile Devices') and deselect the option 'Show On-Screen Keyboard When Using Bluetooth Devices' .

Troubleshooting

When a Bluetooth page turner does not function:
  • check your system preferences if the Bluetooth connection is active.
  • make sure that the Bluetooth page turner is configured to send 'up arrow' and 'down arrow' key commands ('page up' (PgUp) and 'page down' (PgDn) key commands are automatically processed as 'up arrow' and 'down arrow' commands.).
  • verify if Song One reacts to the 'up arrow' and 'down arrow' keys of an external Bluetooth computer keyboard. If so, contact the manufacturer of the Bluetooth page turner to troubleshoot any hardware issues.
