Boom Recorder

Boom Recorder is a multitrack field recorder. It has been designed to be used during the high stress production of a tv/film shoot, a concert or a live stage performance. Boom Recorder has many metadata fields that are used during a film production, making it easy to keep track of the many audio files in post production. For concerts and live stage performances it is possible to record up to 256 (Boom Recorder Pro) tracks continuously for many hours.

Once you have downloaded Boom Recorder you have a 30 day trial license which is equivalent to the Boom Recorder Pro license level. This will give you time to test the full production flow and decide which of the two license levels below you would like to order:

Quotes

"Boom Recorder is the field recordists dream, It is the epitome of directly serving the needs of location recording with a simple and direct robust program which appears to be quite sturdy in every way...." - Charles Maynes, sound designer on 'Flags of Our Fathers'

"The two most significant features I took a shine to were 1) the metering system; its size and resolution are nearly perfect... highly useful without overkill. The ability to design my own preferred scaling for red, yellow, and green 'zones' is sheer brilliance. A quick glance is all I need for immediate, relevant feedback. I love it! And 2) the adjustable pre-roll buffer. I don't know anyone who hasn't been caught off guard by a momentary diversion that resulted in a near (or even a complete) miss of a cue in the heat of the battle. That buffer is worth the price of admission alone. Apart from those most significant features, I really appreciate the simplicity of the uncluttered interface that boils all of the required field-accessible in formation into a minimalist presentation. Everything you need is there, but JUST the stuff you need. Wonderful!" - Cletus Baker from Studio B, Ltd.

"I'm using Boom Recorder again on Season 2 of Project Runway Canada hosted by international fashion icon Iman. Boom Recorder worked flawlessly for me on Season 1 --in fact it never once locked up or crashed my MacPro system. Reality television's high track count means I'm often recording 24 tracks of 24 bit audio, 16 hours a day for 30 plus days of shooting --the thing is rock solid. Big ups for the fantastic application." - Mark Krupka, Head Audio Recording Engineer, Project Runway Canada.
