BOOM is the only interface in its class that lets you fine tune your input sources with premium built-in hardware DSP FX. Are you a creator on-the-go? BOOM is powered by your device - just connect BOOM directly to your Mac, iPad Pro or Windows laptop, and let your ideas flow wherever you go.
Perfecting Analog with Pristine Digital Design Since 1985
For almost four decades, Apogee has been perfecting the art of analog recording in a digital world. BOOM continues that legacy by focusing on the details and premium components - allowing your projects to stand out from the rest.
- BOOM's conversion stages employ high-end analog to digital and digital to analog conversion 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 and powering popular microphones like the Shure SM7B
- 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
Intuitive Workflow to Shape your Sound
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 shape and sculpt your input sources with a 3-band EQ, compression and a drive knob that adds the warmth and grit of analog gear. The ECS Channel Strip is also available as a native plugin from Apogee, so you can add the same character too any track in your mix.

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.
