Bome Virtual Outs

What is the difference in the following?

Bome MIDI Translator 1 Virtual Out
Bome Virtual Port 1

They are the same port however one is an automatically created alias created for backwards compatibility with previous versions of MT Pro.

If you look a them, you will see the first name as an alias pointing to the second name which is the physical port name. You should open only either one or the other but not both or you will get duplicate output. Better still, create and use your own alias for better compatibility if you move devices around.

You can learn more about aliases from this tutorial.
