Important update October 2018 (new MIDI Mode):
The pedals AirTurn PED and AirTurn PEDpro now have a new MIDI mode (mode 7).
This mode is very recommended, because the other supported modes that simulate a keyboard have side effects to the function of the virtual onscreen keyboard of the iPad.
You can configure this mode 7 and install a firmware update (if needed) with the app "AirTurn Manager". See here for more information: https://www.airturn.com/support/midi/airturn-manager-setup-for-midi.
With the default settings of mode 7, the left pedal sends a ControlChange 64 with value 127 and the right pedal a ControlChange 66 with value 127 (both on MIDI channel 1).
The pedal can then be connected from SongBook+ with on the button "...", then "Bluetooth MIDI LE", then "Bluetooth LE MIDI devices".
In the MIDI foot pedal settings of SongBook+, in submenu "Freely configurable ControlChange" you can configure e.g. the following:
- if controller 64 changes to 127, execute this action: Jump to previous page.
- if controller 66 changes to 127, execute this action: Jump to next page.
