BOOM is made with musicians, podcasters, and streamers in mind, and offers the famed Apogee sound quality and onboard DSP we’ve come to know and love at a solid price point.
The onboard DSP will allow users to record through the Symphony ECS Channel Strip – tuned by legendary mix engineer Bob Clearmountain – to add the warmth and grit of analogue gear with a three-band EQ, compression, and drive.
The Apogee BOOM can record audio at up to 24-bit/192kHz, and boasts an onboard preamp that offers up to 62dB of gain.
There are two balanced 1/4-inch outputs and a 1/4-inch headphone output, as well as a “studio grade” headphone amp, and a zero-ohm output provides an audiophile experience, resulting in more clarity, dynamics, and a perfectly balanced frequency response.
The inclusion of a Loopback mode makes streaming for Twitch and YouTube a breeze, allowing you to blend and tune audio from things like video games, your DAW of choice, and Spotify playlists – all at the same time.
The interface works with Mac, Windows, and iOS devices that are USB-C compatible, and comes with Ableton Live Lite, and the Apogee Soft Limit plugin.
BOOM is available now and will retail for $499.
