BomeBox + iConnectivity mioXM

Hi folks

Want to extend the bomebox with additional Midiports (USB+DIN). The only information I got, is to take something with MIDI USB class compliance.
I would like to take this one, which is class compliant : iConnectivity mioXM

Anyone using this as “port-expansion” for the Bome box? Any experience?

Best regards from Germany

Reinhard

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

I don’t have the mioXM but I have an iConnectivityMIDI4+ which is a predecessor and it works just fine with BomeBox.

Dear Steve,

thx for your response.
2 additional questions regarding your environment.
Do you use the bomebox also Standalone with the midi4+ without a PC/Mac
Does you attached DIN and USB MIDI to your midi4+?

I’m not using it now but when I did, yes it was stand alone (no Computer) and yes it had both USB and MIDI DIN devices attached.

The reason I don’t use it anymore is because all but one of my attached devices are now USB MIDI and so I only need 1 MIDI DIN port which I can just use with BomeBox. I just use a simple USB powered hub for my MIDI USB connections. The iConnectivity 4+ just sits on my shelf and I only pull it down when helping other users with Bome Products when trying to duplicate or approximate their configuration setup.

In my opinion, the iConnectivity is now a bit of overkill since the BomeBox is so smart (with an MT Pro project running on it), I can configure the port routing, filtering and conversion with the project file running on the BomeBox. I originally purchased my icm4+ prior to having the BomeBox.

Dear Steve,

thx for further infos. May you check if you can use the USB Hub vor the USB devices and connecting the IC4+ to this Hub as well. If this work, indeed a cheaper solution would fit. That is important for me, as I have to connect more than 1 Midi Din Device
I do use actually a motu Express 128, but this device does not seems to be class compliant ;-(

best regards

Yes, I just connected via unpowered MIDI hub and also connected MIDI Fighter Twister to that hub and I can see all USB ports. I believe the icm4 is configured so that the MIDI DIN ports are exposed as 4 of these USB ports.

I also have a recent consulting customer with a mioXM and he says it works well with BomeBox.
