Need help with Orpheus? You’re in the right place!

How do I connect a foot pedal to turn pages while I’m playing?

Orpheus has been tested and is compatible with the following Bluetooth page turners:

In Orpheus go to Settings > Enable foot pedal. Make sure your pedal is paired correctly with your device and it should work right away with no further configuration.

Orpheus uses a standardised left/right/up/down control to communicate with any bluetooth keyboard or page turn device. This is an industry standard, so it is highly likely to work with ANY bluetooth page turner. However, the brands mentioned above have been fully tested and are definitely 100% compatible. 🙂

Maeve Lander is a software developer by day, jazz trumpeter by night. She created Orpheus ~6 years ago, when Android was first born. It has gone through iteration over the years, but has always held true to the original vision; a minimalist sheet music reader that just does one thing, really well.

Are there plans to develop any kind of page turning capability via a smart watch? I’m an organist (and have plenty of pedals to worry about!) — adding a page turning pedal isn’t very feasible.

Very cool idea David, I’ll add that to our requests list and consider it in the future.
PS. I wonder if a TAP pedal like this might be more your style?
