Bome Box Allen Heath Qu16 control

Hi There,

I'm trying to work out if I can use Bome Box (configured with Midi Translator Pro) to use my Qu 16 faders to control hard-to-access internal parameters back inside the Qu16 without a computer connected. The way I see it, I can setup a qu custom layer, and have all faders send generic midi messages out --> Bome Box --> Translate to what I want (MSB/LSB messages) --> back into Qu 16...

But I'm confused/concerned by the lack of Qu16 midi connectivity. It has a USB B port; but that states it needs a driver for windows... I'm not sure that the Bome Box will connect to this?

It also has a single ethernet port for TCP connection - will this port send AND recieve to and from the Bome Box? Or is it just one way??

Sorry - I know I'm talking about another manufacturers functionality here; but I do see that Bome "supports allen heath Qu mixers"; and I'm wondering if you've tested this out-of-Qu(16/24/32) --> back-into-Qu(16/24/32) functionality (or if you know it's possible etc.).

If this is not possible; then I assume the functionaility would work one way into Qu16 via TCP, and I'd need to use a separate midi controller to control my chosen Qu features?... Which is ok; but if the above is possible, that's way better for my application :)




Hi Jonny,


BomeBox supports Allen & Heath Qu mixers over the network. You can both send and receive from your Qu16. You will need to purchase Bome MIDI Translator Pro and load your project file on your BomeBox with your PC or Mac. Then you can run it on BomeBox without a computer.

At the bottom of the below page, there are a few screenshots that show how it gets connected.  I can help further here if you have a specific question/translation you want.

Steve... whaoh... haha I literally just got shivers!


That is the best news I've... hmm... ever had?... Well music-production wise ;)


Finally one of my "if I only I could" moments is actually possible. It's my bday Thursday, so will buy myself a B-Box (and translator software) as a present :)


Super cool product by the way --> thanks!!... Will touch base again if I have any issues setting things up...

Great, yes I've helped a few people with the Qu-16. And I don't even own one.


Happy Birthday!
