hi there, I’m looking for some help with how to achieve a particular goal of mine. I’m currently using MT pro to expand the capabilities of my factory mapping on my mpk249 but i was curious if there was a way i can take my project from MT pro and have it as a loaded preset on my controller. anyone know how i go down that route?

You will not be able to put your Bome Project File on the controller as stand alone, but if you have your controller configured with your Bome MT Pro project file and want to use a given controller configuration when using with MT Pro, you can use a tools like SendSX (on Windows) to re-dump what you have captured when you created the syx file back to the controller, then load up MT Pro to use it.
On a Mac you can also use “sendmidi” but this is beyond the scope of Bome Support we provide here. Here is a link to SendMIDI

Yes I saw the basics of how it operated when I got the Syx from the controller that it was currently using, but I’m not sure where to go from here.
Basically what I’m asking is am I supposed to
1.edit that specific file I got from the controller
1 and 2) I’m not sure what you would do with he syx file from your controller. My guess is that is just a mechanism that saves your current settings. You should probably discuss this with the controller manufacturer.
The key use of MT Pro is to use it as a “translator” between an existing controller and an application (or other MIDI device) to help extend or customize the functionality you want.
So what exactly would I have to do to get everything working standalone on the controller. I know I have to dump to syx file I’ll use as a preset on the controller and I know I’ll be able to send it using send Sx but how do I actually come up with the file to send. What do I need to do to come up with a .syx file to send that will work.
I can’t tell you how to get it working as standalone with the controller because I don’t know how you want your controller programmed and what software/hardware you will be interacting with. It may or may not work standalone. You would need to talk to the vendors of the hardware and software products to get it working that way. After that, anything not working you could come back here and see if we can get Bome MIDI Translator pro to interject to do what you want it to do. Bome MT Pro is not a sys manager. It simply is a translator between your MIDI devices to augment MIDI messages that are not otherwise natively supported.
I’m not 100% sure I understand what you are asking.
2) You want to send a Sysex configuration at project start to program your controller for a specific configuration for use with your project file?
If it is 1, then it really depends on the capability of your controller. You would have to program it to use as you wish then send a SysEx dump to your computer for later use.
If it is 2, then you can create a translator that executes a file at startup that sends the SysEx file.
In either case if you are on Windows, you can use SendSX as a tool to both capture and send Sys Ex. If you are on Mac, you could use a set of tools on available github called sendmidi and rcvmidi. Both of these tools have a command line option so you could use an “Execute Command” output action in MT Pro to call them up with the correct parameters at the point you want (assuming of course your controller can send and receive sys ex dumps). Some controllers only allow their own “configuration tool” for this type of functionality.

Definitely #1. I am on Mac but I did use my windows laptop to receive the .syx dump from my Akai MPK 249. I have the half done .bmtp file (only half because i was finished then came up with more things to do 😅) now I’m just not sure what I’m supposed to do to get it on the controller. Am I just supposed to send the .bmtp file to the one controller or how do I go about getting my project on the controller so it works standalone without the MT pro running on my computer
Are you able to let me know what I’m supposed to do or possibly link some other pages where my question is answered?
