I am a brand new user to Bome MIDI Translator Pro (just purchased a licence), using it to allow the connection of two Akai APC Minis into vMix (by putting them onto different MIDI channels).
I have successfully setup the first APC Mini in Bome and it now presents all the MIDI Messages to vMix on Channel #2. I even managed to get bi-directional communication working (with the help of some posts on this forum) so vMix can send feedback to the APC Mini to change the button lights. This first APC Mini presents to Bome and is listed in the devices as "APC MINI".
I am now setting up the second APC Mini. I just connected it to the computer, and Bome seems to give the last connected device priority. There are now two devices listed in Bome: "APC MINI" and "APC MINI (2)". However, the latest connected device (i.e. the second APC Mini) is given the title "APC MINI" and the device which was previously connected is relegated to being "APC MINI (2)".
This has the issue that none of the buttons or lights now work on the first APC Mini, they are now active on the newly second connected APC Mini.
Any ideas how to tell Bome that it should keep using the originally connected APC Mini when another identical device is connected? I have tried setting up an Alias but when the underlying device changes the alias then also points to the incorrect device.
Thanks in advance!
Update. I also just found another strange issue. I have setup another set of translators for the second APC Mini, which are configured to translate the MIDI commands onto channel #3 for vMix. These translators are only configured to read from the second APC Mini device. However, when I press a button on the second APC Mini it not only sends out that command over channel #3, but also over channel #2 (i.e. the channel used by the first APC Mini). When I disable the translator it no longer happens (i.e. pressing the button on the second APC Mini does nothing at all) so it definitely seems related to that translator.
I have attached the .bmtp file in case that helps!
