I'm trying to change the name in boards: micro.build.usb_product="Arduino Micro” to micro.build.usb_product="other name”, but it doesn't change anything, it still shows up as Arduino Micro. Is there a way to change its name?

Thanks!

Looking for a easy way for the burning issue without creating a device id and manufacturer registration. Teensy provides the functionality to the newbie for changing the USB Midi name in Windows. Hence, using ARCORE should also be feasible. Please share the mechanism.

Thanks silveirago for your suggestion. I tried this and now I am getting "USB IO board" instead of "Arduino Micro" as the device description. Still far away from desired goal.
My intent is to use Arduino Micro Pro for custom midi controller with custom name. If you are currently using MidiUSB library you can even let me know how to solve the problem using that library.

Still doesnt work~ can't change the usb device name.

micro.build.vid=0x999
micro.build.pid=0x999
micro.build.usb_product="My midi controller"
And save the file.

Still can't change the usb device name to anything other than "USB IO Board". Please help. This feature is badly needed.

Thanks for quickly responding. Would this work for arcore?

Any further help?

Thanks Silveirago for all the help.
Can you suggest what changes I need to make in order to change from arcore to midiusb? Please confirm whether I am on the right path -

  1. change board in Arduino IDE from pro micro (arcore) to sparkfun pro micro.
  2. I assume that non-midi code remains untouched. Will it work without any changes?
  3. Include midiusb.h ?
    I am not sure what changes to the midi specific code I need to make. Any changes expected in latency after shifting to midiusb library? Any significant change in the code size / footprint?

Hi, I was wondering if someone here succeeded changing MIDI device's name.

I use MIDIUSB.h or midi_UsbTransport.h
So, I added this board, and I still have "Arduino Leonardo" as MIDI device name.
Any ideas?

Thank you!

Thank you @silveirago ! This helped. I liked the way @facchinm, in another thread, added a new board, so one would not have to change the Arduino app itself. This is how I ended up doing it: http://liveelectronics.musinou.net/MIDIdeviceName.php
