Improving analog and digital design since 1985
For nearly four decades, Apogee has been perfecting analog recording art in a digital world. BOOM continues that legacy by focusing on details and high-quality components - making your projects stand out.
- BOOM's conversion stages use high-end components for analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion, not low-end codecs.
- All inputs accept a professional maximum input level of +18 dBu, which ensures an unaltered audio signal even with the loudest sources.
- The microphone preamps provide class-leading gain of 62 dB to clearly capture sensitive sources and drive popular microphones like the Shure SM7B.
- The BOOM's zero-ohm headphone output provides an audiophile experience and can drive even high-impedance "hi-fi" headphones with power, clarity, and perfectly balanced frequency response.
Choose the best workflow
BOOM is the first audio interface in its class with integrated hardware DSP. With the Symphony ECS Channel Strip (tuned by Bob Clearmountain, the legendary mixer) you can process your input sources with a 3-band EQ, compression and a Drive control that creates the warmth and pressure of analog gear.
Create the perfect live streaming production with the built-in mixer and loopback mode. This way you can listen to your game, Spotify playlist and/or chat notifications at the same time and at the perfect volume.
2 In - 2 Out
BOOM has 2 inputs and 2 outputs. The inputs on the front are for connecting your microphone, your guitar or your synthesizer, the outputs on the back are for connecting your speakers or headphones.
Touch and Go with the iPad
BOOM is compatible with any iOS device*, making it an ultra-portable solution for content creation on the go with your iPad Pro. The ECS channel strip's touch controls make it easy to find great sound.
Just plug BOOM in with the included USB-C cable to get started. No external power supply is needed*.
