Recently I purchased a small 2.4  GHz Qwerty keyboard which works right out of the box with the Bomebox.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wireless-Mini-Keyboard-Mouse-Backlit-Touchpad-Remote-Control-For-Android-nt/163125423625?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

However, it’s not quite small enough  for me while the keys are a little too small

I also have this tiny Bluetooh Qwerty keyboard.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wireless-Bluetooth-3-0-Keyboard-Mini-Pocket-Size-Tablet-PS4-Phone-Raspberry-Pi/382682084425?epid=1000142417&hash=item5919a13449:g:GAIAAOSwKV9cGorm      Just a perfect size for my purpose and the keys are nice and big.   Is there anyway I could connect it to the Bomebox using a USB Bluetooth receiver?    Or does anyone know of a similar sized 2.4 GHz keyboard?

BTW, my X-Tempo Pok foot controller works great with the Bomebox.

Instead of trying to pair a mini Bluetooth Qwerty to a USB Bluetooth receiver for my Bomebox, I think I found a solution.   This one 5 inch wide.  The keys seem to be big and yet the unit is small enough for my purpose.    https://www.amazon.com/iPazzPort-Wireless-Keyboard-Touchpad-Rechargeable/dp/B078W16Q66/ref=nav_ya_signin?keywords=2.4+ghz+mini+keyboard&qid=1553496804&s=gateway&sr=8-62&

Yes, probably a much safer bet. I think the link I sent you for Bluetooth was more for a MIDI keyboard as opposed to a QWERTY keyboard anyway. Price looks pretty good on this keyboard too. This is what I use but the keys are pretty small. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KF9IVKC/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I’ve also successful used this in hardware mode as it sends out standard PC scan codes. It is much more spendy however. Most of the time I have it connected as a supplemental (hotkey) keyboard on my PC. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003MB780E/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Does the BomeBox support Bluetooth?
There is no built-in Bluetooth in the BomeBox, but you can plug in a Bluetooth-MIDI dongle like WIDI-Bud for connecting Bluetooth MIDI devices to the BomeBox.

Hi,

The BomeBox is currently not designed to work with Bluetooth keyboards. I’ve heard of a few users that got lucky but it is not officially supported.
