For The Creator In All of Us

Musicians

From recording guitars, to vocals, to synthesizers, BOOM will capture every nuance of your performance. You shouldn’t sacrifice anything when it comes to your music, especially sound quality. BOOM features built-in hardware DSP and the Symphony ECS Channel strip to dial in the perfect sound while you record with zero effects latency.

Podcasters

Whether you are recording your first podcast episode in your bedroom or traveling to capture your 200th show, BOOM is the perfect solution for telling your story with unrivalled sound clarity and has enough gain to drive popular content creation microphones like the Shure SM7B. 

Live Streamers

Let your voice be heard and never leave your chat hanging with poor audio quality. Create your own production studio with BOOM’s mixer, on-board DSP processing and Loopback mode. Having a great microphone is only half the solution, let BOOM do the rest.

Bring Your Passion To Life With Superior Sound Quality

For almost four decades, Apogee has been perfecting the art of analogue recording in a digital world. BOOM continues that legacy by focusing on the details and premium audio components - allowing your projects to stand out from the rest.

  • BOOM’s conversion stages employ high-end analogue to digital and digital to analogue components, not low-end codecs.
  • All inputs accept a professional-spec maximum input level of +18dBu, ensuring a pristine audio signal even with the loudest sources.
  • Mic preamps offer a class-leading 62 dB of gain, for capturing delicate sources with clarity.
  • BOOM’s zero-ohm headphone output provides an audiophile experience, able to drive even high-impedance “hi-fi” headphones with power, clarity and a perfectly balanced frequency response

Go with the Best Workflow

BOOM is the first audio interface in its class to offer on-board hardware DSP. With the Symphony ECS Channel Strip (tuned by legendary mixer, Bob Clearmountain), you can sculpt your input sources with a 3-band EQ, compression and a drive knob that adds the warmth and grit of analogue gear. 

Build the Perfect Stream

Create the perfect live streaming production with the on-board Mixer and Loopback mode. Allowing you to listen to your game, Spotify playlist, & chat notifications all at the same time and at the perfect level.

2 In - 2 Out

BOOM comes with 2 Inputs and 2 outputs. Connect your mic and guitar, or synth to your inputs on the front and your speakers or headphones to your outputs on the back.

Touch and Go with iPad

BOOM is compatible with any iOS device*, making it an ultra-portable solution for content creation on the go with your iPad Pro. Touch control of the ECS channel strip makes it easy to dial in a great sound.

The Road-Ready Sidekick

BOOM’s compact and rugged design make it the perfect partner in crime for capturing content anywhere. Built with a steel casing and rubber pads along the base, BOOM is sure to stand the test of time. 

Plug-In-Play

Simply plug BOOM in with the included USB C cable to get started. No external power supply needed*.

*Connection to Lightning devices requires Apple Camera Connection kit and a powered external USB Hub.
