Using a Foot Pedal or Keyboard to Turn Pages

Connect a Bluetooth foot pedal or keyboard to Music Stand to enable hands-free page turning.

  • The AirTurn pedal comes already set up to work with Music Stand by pairing it with your Bluetooth settings. For more information, see AirTurn's article on how to Connect a BT-105 or DIGIT with an Android Tablet.
  • The PageFlip Pedals (Cicada & Firefly) have 5 buttons to choose what characters to use. Choose button 3 for up/down.
  • You can also use any other bluetooth pedal or keyboard without any extra setup by using the up arrow to go to the previous page, and the down arrow to go to the next page. 

If you'd like to customize Music Stand to turn pages when you hit different keys than the default up/down arrows, tap Settings from the sidebar.

Troubleshooting Bluetooth Pedal Connections
