This section will allow you to adjust the settings for a Bluetooth pedal. The development of the app focused on the Airturn brand of pedals. However, the app will work with other pedals, see below. The image below shows the different actions that can be performed with a Bluetooth pedal. All of the options below are used on the Lyrics page. The “Next Lyrics” and “Previous Lyrics” option will only work when you viewing lyrics in a Setlist.
- Pedal 1 – This is the left pedal of the Bluetooth pedal.
- Pedal 2 – Second pedal on a 4 pedal Bluetooth pedal
- Pedal 3 – This is the second pedal for any “Two Pedal” Bluetooth pedal.
- Pedal 4 – Fouth pedal on a 4 pedal Bluetooth pedal
- Scroll Amount – You can adjust the amount the page will scroll when you use the “Scroll Down” or “Scroll Up” options.
- Airturn Settings – This will allow you to pair the Airturn pedal with the app. You will see the screen below when you tap “Airturn Settings”.
To get the Airturn pedal work with the app you must turn on the Airturn Support and connect your pedal. When the pedal is connected tap the “Which mode should I use?” link to help you choose the right mode.

Support of Bluetooth pedals other than Airturn
Your Bluetooth pedal should be configured to send the following keyboard commands:
- Pedal 1: Page Up
- Pedal 2: Page Left
- Pedal 3: Page Down
- Pedal 4: Page Right
In “Settings” tap “Airturn Settings”. Turn “Airturn Support” on. Choose “Keyboard”. Your Bluetooth pedal is Bluetooth Keyboard where the pedals act like keyboard keys.
The downside of this approach is your keyboard will be the Bluetooth pedal. You won’t see the onscreen keyboard unless you disconnect the pedal. Getting an Airturn pedal is another way to solve this problem.
