Hey gals and guys, we’ve just released the Bome Network tool for connecting to the BomeBox (mainly), and demonstrated some nice new MT Pro features at the NAMM Show two weeks ago.
With the Bome Network tool you connect your favorite DAW or other MIDI software to the BomeBox from a Windows or macOS computer. It works with Bome MIDI Translator Pro, too! It’s free for connecting to a BomeBox. Bome Network Pro costs EUR 29 and lets you connect from computer to computer, too (much like Apple’s network MIDI/RTP-MIDI).
At the NAMM Show in Anaheim, we’ve shown early versions of a couple of new features for MIDI Translator Pro:
- OSC actions: use OSC input and output actions in MT Pro projects for translating OSC to and from MIDI, or to mouse/keystrokes or even other OSC
- OSC Router: create flexible OSC routings for multiple OSC apps
- Improved MIDI Router: create routes from MIDI Output ports to another Output (duplicate MIDI output streams), from Input to Input (duplicate incoming MIDI data as if it comes from another port, too), or from Output to Input (feed it back to the router and the processing engine). This will facilitate many connection issues!
- Improved Serial Ports: your serial port settings are now stored in the project file, and the MIDI-over-serial feature has been greatly improved.
The best thing is: all these new features will also come to the BomeBox with a firmware upgrade! At NAMM, we’ve shown a smartphone running TouchOSC directly connected to the BomeBox via its built-in WiFi, where we’ve been running an MT Pro project translating the OSC messages to MIDI, and playing a synthesizer connected via 5-pin DIN. No computer necessary for your performance!
Also, we will post an interim update of MT Pro to fix a few compatibility issues with macOS “Sierra” 10.12.
