Hi, these are different features of Bome Network. I apologize for the lack of documentation or tutorials. It’s pre-release software at this time. We will provide documentation soon.
1. Bome Network Pro
This is an add-on to Bome Network which allows you to run MIDI from a computer to a computer. Without this add-on, Bome Network only works from computer to BomeBox(es).
A license for Bome Network Pro is not required for accessing BomeBoxes.
2. Unlimited Named MIDI Ports
(New in v1.3 – currently in public beta test). This is an add-on which allows you to create virtual MIDI ports and route them to and from other virtual MIDI ports, network MIDI ports, and physical MIDI devices. This is very similar to the IAC ports in MacOS or loopback MIDI ports on Window. But it allows you very fine grained MIDI routing, and free naming of these virtual ports.
A license for Unlimited Named MIDI Ports is not required for accessing BomeBoxes.
3. Remote Direct MIDI
This new feature in Bome Network v1.3 allows you to directly access all MIDI ports of a remotely connected BomeBox. You need BomeBox firmware v1.5 or later for that (currently in closed beta test), but you do not need to purchase a license for that. Only if you want to use Remote Direct MIDI ports on other computers, you need a license of Bome Network Pro.
Using Remote Direct MIDI with BomeBoxes is free of charge.
I hope this clears things up. I’ve also improved the instructions above for setting up Remote Direct MIDI ports.
