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 midi.org 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:
https://www.bome.com/products/bomenet#downloads

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.

BomeBox

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
