When you're all done, share wirelessly with your team in real-time¹, or print, email, and export too². OnSong is as flexible as it is powerful.

OnSong is built for the stage. Tap to turn pages or go hands-free with wireless foot pedals or intelligent autoscrolling². No more clumsy page turning on cluttered music stands. Every aspect of the song is at your fingertips. Assign tempo and time signature for a reassuring click², sing a cappella with a digital pitch pipe², link to backing tracks to play along², or even send MIDI events to automate your stage¹, all without complicated or confusing equipment.

OnSong features powerful video features that go well beyond other apps. Display lyrics on a projector or an HDTV with a video adapter, AppleTV, or Google Cast-compatible device¹. Compose custom backgrounds with still or motion graphics, or live video¹ feeds for dynamic performances. Stay on the same page with your band with confidence monitors you control on-stage. While you're at it, run stage lighting too¹. OnSong is the ultimate creative tool for musicians.

Great product but poor instructions

I just purchased 2022 premium and received only an email receipt. No instructions on how to activate it, get fast track support, transfer my 2020 songs and settings. I have no idea what to do at this point. Looks like I have to wait until someone responds to my support request.

OnSong 2020 is gone??!!!

I have a new bandmates I need to add him to OnSong 2020 as the rest of the band is all using 2020 not 22. is that version no longer available? I certainly don’t want to upgrade after all of the horror stories I’m reading and the developer not responding to or fixing this bloody mess. The developer replied and really didn’t give me any information that was useful other than saying that the 2022 launch didn’t go as they had planned and they have a ton of issues. all I want to do is open the 2022 app and restore my back up with all of my songs and Setlist, but I can’t seem to run the app without creating an account and logging in which I have no interest in doing at all. are you truly holding me hostage to run the software that I have to create an account login I can’t use it locally?

Developer Response ,

Hello! Since OnSong 2022 is account-based, you will need to create an OnSong account (which can be done for free) before utilizing the app. Once this is done, the Free tier can be used to receive OnSong charts from other paid OnSong users and allow those free users to use OnSong as a song viewer. OnSong 2020 and 2022 both work interchangeably with one another in beaming and sharing songs, so you should not experience any problems with those.

Wanted to Like It

UPDATE: In your response, you suggest I click the gear icon. I don’t have a navigation bar, let alone a gear icon. That is the issue.

I’ve been a long term fan of OnSong. 2022 is a head-scratcher. I downloaded it on my iPad Pro and all I see is the introduction “song” with the instructions. There is no navigation bar. I’ve searched the knowledge base. I’ve tried reinstalling. I’ve tried tapping in the middle of the screen. I’ve tried pulling down from the top. I’ve tried to set up an action. Nothing works. I’m left wanting to support the team but unable to justify spending money on something that I can even use from the very first screen.

Developer Response ,

You can do this through opening OnSong 2022 > Utilities gear icon > Support > Contact Us. If you’ve already done these steps, please let us know your ticket reference number that you should have received when sending in your support request, and we will forward it to our support team to make sure you receive a response ASAP.
