MIDIBuddy Frequenlty Asked Questions (FAQ)
What you can do with MIDIBuddy that you can’t do with Bome MT Pro by itself?
How do install/deinstall MIDIBuddy?
Simply unzip the executable and put it in a folder of your choice. Note that the folder needs to have write user privledges to this folder to store an maintain the configuration file. There is no install/deinstall script.
On first open or changes to your existing MIDI ports, it will prompt you for an output port. Select the input port you wish to monitor with MT Pro as defined in your MT Pro project
After that, MIDIBuddy will sit in your system tray and you can right click on the MIDIBuddy icon to reconfigure ports, change other settings, etc. You can also quit from here our use the defined shortcuts as indicated in the supplied Readme file.
What messages does MIDIBuddy send?
MIDIBuddy sends special MIDI System Exclusive (SysEx) message. We do this to not conflict with any other pre-defined MIDI standards. Of course, you can convert these messages to anything MIDI messages you would like with Bome MT Pro. The format of all supported output messages are available in the “Readme” file supplied with the software. We also supply a Bome MT Pro template that contains the possible incoming messages. You can use this template to customize the rules and actions you want to take when receiving MIDI events from MIDIBuddy.

If the question or issue is with the functioning of MIDIBuddy, please email email@example.com. As the user base grows, we may have a web site/forum to handle increased volume of questions.
Many of the questions we have had so far are less about MIDIBuddy and more about how to set up MT Pro project files to handle MIDIBuddy input. If the question is more of a “how to I get MT Pro” to do X when I get MIDIBuddy event Y, these questions are best handled by going the bome support site (just like any other MIDI product out there).
