Sound Amazing with BOOM

Powerful Mic Preamp and Pristine Conversion

Rise Above the Noise

No other product in its category outperforms BOOM when it comes to sound quality. BOOM’s preamp can power the most demanding mics like the Shure SM7B with up to 62dB of clean, noiseless gain. Capture that signal with Apogee’s legendary analog to digital conversion for pristine, professional recordings that will make your tracks stand out.

Drew Kapner & Damian Hudson Recording With BOOM

Can you connect BOOM to iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, etc.)? arrow down

Yes! Thanks to the Apogee Control 2 iOS app you can easily record with BOOM on any iOS device.

Does BOOM require external power? arrow down

No. BOOM is USB-Bus Powered.

What plugin can you run BOOM’s onboard DSP? arrow down

BOOM runs the Symphony ECS Channel Strip which gives you a 3-Band EQ, Compressor, and Drive knob to shape your recordings.

Can Boom’s Headphone Output power high impedance headphones? arrow down

Yes, Boom’s headphone output is designed to drive both high and low impedance headphones optimally.

No additional headphone amp would be required to power high impedance headphones.

We recommend using headphones with higher impedances (50 Ohms and higher) for the best audio quality.
