We hope all you people out there have been having a pleasant experience with the first beta of Boom 2.0 so far. The community has been very helpful in sending us feedback with every minor detail being reported and being worked upon. After collecting data related to crashes and bugs, we’ve made changes and introduced a new feature in this new beta update that comes out today. Although we’ve tried to address all reported issues, we’re still working on some of them and they will be addressed real soon. Also, we received a really touching testimonial from a user and we just had to share it with all of you.
With the release of the 2nd beta, we’ve introduced finer audio controls for a more intricate equalizer experience. You can find frequency constraint controls in the equalizer section. When using either the regular 10-band equalizer or the advanced one, you will be able to have better control over the bands. Clicking on the bass, mid and treble icons in the 10-band equalizer will allow you to simultaneously move the nodes present under that category simultaneously.
Under ‘Advanced’, you’ll be able control and move all the frequencies at once that are categorized under bass, mid or treble. This gives a more precise and pro-like setting for you to make the most of. You also have a slider to the right of the equalizer that can be used to shift entire presets up and down in one go.
When this feature is ON, you can select a node. Next, all nodes in the same category will go up or down in proportion to the moves made.
Apart from this, there are several improvements that have been carried out in other areas. We’ve further polished the app in terms of audio and this is where we’d like to share what Mr. Ronald Norton, a veteran from the US Air Force, had to say about Boom 2.0 helping him out.
Hello, I have a few medical issues that Boom 2.0 helps me greatly. I am a Viet Nam era veteran of the US Air Force and I have a problem with my hearing. It is not just about getting more volume but the actual pitch of the volume that really helps me. I used your app with Bass Boost and it actually helps without causing other issues. I can’t speak for everybody, but I can speak of my own experience. I have PTSD and TBI from a brain infection and I am “100% Permanently and Totally Service-Connected Disabled.” Some applications just add volume and for me, that would be a total disaster. One of the residual impacts of the brain infection is that I am now an epileptic with grand mal seizures and the strange thing is what triggers them. For me, it can be as simple as an odor or scent, flickering light or certain types of sound. The important thing is that type of sound or the pitch of the sound, these are all important in helping the medication to prevent the grand mal seizures. Thank you for this opportunity to share my perspective on the use of your application.
We’re really happy that Boom has helped Mr. Norton in his everyday life and it only motivates us further in developing products that make a difference. Boom isn’t just about loud audio anymore. Boom 2.0 takes Mac acoustics into the future with added emphasis on the quality of audio that it churns out.
