The sound space ,


This in one of those programs i just can't do without. It is now the centrepiece of my whole rig. I used to have folders with 1000s of song all carefully organised and moved around all the time for different gigs and musicians. Once I moved to onsong there was no turning back. And they keep improving it! I have backing tracks and different versions of the songs and they can all live together on the program - even with the same name if I open a new library! For example I have a library for my keyboard gigs and another for my guitar gigs with different versions of the same named songs.
I use word files and PDFs as well as OnSong format files for my music so love the flexibility and speed of getting new songs into it. I also keep copies of my partner's songs for her as she is still doing the dinosaur things with the handwritten songs...
One little addition I'd like is to be able to insert some music manuscript in amongst the words and chords when I have a specific line I might want to play. Perhaps it is already doable?
Anyway keep it up OnSong - Your support for your program is second to none! Love Yu!

No matter where you are even at the bottom of Tasmania the support and the brilliance of OnSong is making a lot of people globally extremely happy and amazed at what I think is the best value app on the market. We now have over 1000 songs in our song list with inserted backing tracks and is 5gb's. I have recommended OnSong to many of my friends and it is my pleasure to help them familiarise themselves with it and not one of them has asked me for any more advice because the ease of use and the support is outstanding. Thank you, thank you thank you OnSong. Rob Nicholls. ps: I have velcroed an AirTurn Digit 3 to the top of my guitar and it is much easier to use than the foot pedals. Thank you to AirTurn as well.

Just buy it

I hesitated for a long time, reluctant to spend the money on this app, but after a long frustrating time I bit the bullet and bought it. It has been the best money I have spent, this app is so clever, it is everything I wanted.
I can install all my tabs in its library, including all my sheet music as PDF’s, I have never been so organised it is incredible, I will save money on not buying paper and ink cartridges and save time by not looking everywhere for my music. I cannot recommend this app enough, it has made me so happy I bought it.
