News January 2021 / Believe In Music

We hope that you’ve had a nice, safe, and healthy start into 2021!

Here at Bome we’ve been safe and healthy… and very busy! We’re currently finalizing updates to Bome Network, MIDI Translator Pro, and the BomeBox firmware… (sorry no release yet!). Here are some related news.

NAMM Believe in Music Week

Next week is this year’s NAMM show — an all-virtual event: Believe In Music Week. Organizations and manufacturers present their products on the Believe In Music’s Swapcard site, and you can schedule virtual meetings. There are also a lot of streamed video sessions, performances, and concerts.
The best part: it’s free to attend for everyone!
There is also a virtual Bome booth, we’d love to see you come by 😉 … or schedule a meeting!

MIDI Innovation Awards

This is a new award for innovative MIDI products. Of the many very interesting contestants, 10 finalists were selected by a panel of industry reviewers (which included yours truly). Now, public voting has started, so you can vote, too!
The grand finale will be streamed next Thursday in an awards show, including a high profile jury, MCs, and live performances.
Check out the finalists, vote, and attend the live stream here:

Streamed MIDI Sessions

Organized by the MIDI Association, there are 4 interesting sessions on January 18 as part of the Believe In Music week:

All times are in the Pacific time zone. See the web site for more information:

Now I’m going back to implementing (some) MIDI 2.0 features in the BomeBox firmware…

November Update

Hey there!
We hope that you are safe and healthy during these troubling times in many parts of the world.

How about some nicer news?

BomeBox with Flange

This version of the BomeBox is widely available now. While functionality and connectors are the same as for the normal BomeBox, the mounting bracket allows affixing the BomeBox with screws:

We usually don’t have Black Friday sales, but we want to celebrate this additional BomeBox form factor with an introductory offer: for a limited time, it’s on sale for the same price as the normal BomeBox:

And while we ship world-wide from our web shop, we continue to expand our global network of distributors:

New Forum

When we retired our traditional forum in 2017, we hoped to provide a modern solution for improved user support and community discussions. Unfortunately, that Q&A-style forum continued to have technical deficiencies and seemed more confusing than our own products 😉

Joking aside, this new forum is powered by Discourse, and for me, it’s pure joy to see the community feel coming back — in just 5 days already! Check it out:

Software Updates

Exciting new features for Bome Network, MIDI Translator Pro, and BomeBox firmware… coming soon!

The MIDI Association and MIDI 2.0

These are great times for MIDI! In the MIDI Association, I am participating in the development of new standards for the MIDI 2.0 ecosystem. And at Bome, we’re also working on first MIDI 2.0 implementations in our products.

Here is a new introductory MIDI 2.0 video by the MIDI Association (maybe you can spot a Bome signature product?):

Now back to translating some MIDI…

News and May is MIDI Month – Fundraiser for Artists

Hello Everyone,
we, the Bome team, hope that you are keeping your spirits up despite the COVID-19 situation. How about some Bome news?

May is MIDI Month!

May is MIDI Month is the MIDI Association’s yearly fund raiser. Because many MIDI users are severely affected by COVID-19, this year’s proceeds go to the Grammy/MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Grammy/MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund

The fund provides help for musicians and other creatives affected by the pandemic. Maybe you are lucky enough to be able to donate? All donations via the MIDI Association are matched by factor 10 by MIDI Manufacturers Association sponsor companies. As a silver sponsor, we are happy to have pledged $500 in matched donations.

Furthermore, the MIDI month brings you tips and weekly MIDI webinars on Saturdays. Check out for more information.

Bome Network Beta

Bome Network 1.2.8 BETA

An update to our Bome Network tool is overdue! Because the next version will feature many new features, we decided to open up a pre-release version (beta). If you’d like to check out Catalina support, a flexible MIDI Router, full control over virtual MIDI ports (including an add-on for purchase to create arbitrary virtual MIDI ports), and a new GUI, download it here:

We’d be happy to hear your experiences with this beta version!

And you may have been intrigued by the last connection entry in the screenshot above… yes, we’re currently evaluating if we want to publish Bome Network as an app for iOS devices. If you’d like to check it out, please ask us.


We’re currently preparing an interim firmware update with minor improvements. Later this year, we expect a major update with multi-stream support and MIDI 2.0 features. Stay tuned!

Stay Safe and Healthy!

Wishing you all the best,
Florian and the Bome team
