Hi. I just rebought a Bome Box in order to test a new idea I had to connect my Rane Twelve MIDI HID Turntable to Serato and Houdini simultaneously on 2 separate laptops. I was hoping that I could plug the Rane Twelve into Bome Box and take a USB-MIDI In/Out 3 port cable (1 USB, 2 MIDI–1 in 1 out) to plug into the Serato laptop for Serato to read the Rane Twelve MIDI turntable data, and then pass the second signal over the network with the Bome Box Network Tool to the second laptop running Houdini. Technically this would work and the proof is that Serato can see the Rane Twelve sort of. Unfortunately Serato sees the turntable as a USB MIDI Device, rather than as a “Rane Twelve” and this means that since the identity “Rane Twelve” is stripped when the signal passes through the Bome Box to the Serato laptop, you cannot use the Rane Twelve to perform as the hardware is intended and designed.
So my question is: is there a way to go into the Bome Box Settings webpage and configure cable-connected MIDI signals to remain unaltered, keeping their device identity? Or will Bome Box always try to create its own identity over the MIDI signal?
