My, was I proud of myself to set up each keystroke to send multiple PC messages on multiple MIDI channels!    Now I can use a Bluetooth keyboard to call up sounds.   Neat.  I know this is a very basic function of MT Pro, but if I tell others about it, it sounds like I am doing very complex midi work.   It is complex, but MT Pro makes it so easy.     Now, all this leads me to  the question I posted before;   I’d love to do the same with an IOS device.

So,

1. Is MT Pro for IOS coming soon?

2. QWERTY keyboard support for the Bomebox?

3. When the Bomebox supports the QWERTY keyboard, does it mean I can use a Bluetooth keyboard?    I posted on this forum that a Bluetooth midi transmitter works right out of the box with the Bomebox.

Thanks

Hi, there is a Beta version of BomeBox firmware that partially supports Qwerty keyboard. I have tested the Beta Version. It supports key up, key down, and keystroke but not text.  I tested it with a wireless (but not Bluetooth), keyboard.  It will likely support bluetooth keyboard but I’m not sure.  I’ve never seen Bome to “pre-announce” upcoming functionality and as far as I know, there is not an MT Pro version for IOS.

Thanks, Steve. That’s good to hear. If you were able to use a wireless keyboard with the BomeBox, I’d think that a Bluetooth keyboard would work also. What kind of a wireless keyboard use? You must have used a wireless receiver connected to the BomeBox? Where can I download the beta version? Thanks. Chris

Use the “email support” link to request a copy of the beta.
Here is the keyboard I tested with:
