My name is Ron M and I’m from Sydney, Australia. I’m a professional Sound Supervisor/Audio Director who’s into my fifth decade of ongoing work in the field, mostly live and on location.
I’ve now spent five months using Boom on a daily basis, waiting to discover “the catch”.
In my experience, Boom’s clever multi-band companding (controlled by the “Boom Volume “slider”) rivals that from digital rack-mount systems at around ten times the price, …having adjustment ranging from the truly subtle and transparent “evening-out” of perceived loudness to the harshest imaginable dynamic boosting that’s either for the hearing-impaired, or is a valuable “last resort” for recovering intelligibility from horribly degraded source material.
That tool alone would be worth Boom’s cost, but then, …there’s the absolutely intuitive to operate, (roughly octave-spaced) graphic equaliser that “remembers” user-defined presets.
It boasts just enough sliders to facilitate the rapid “panel beating” of any sound or system in the absence of pink noise and measurement microphone.
Speaking of “absence”, the addition of harmonic and temporal distortion is also notably absent when using this device.
In over forty years of touring audio worldwide, I’ve experienced nothing that approaches Global Delight’s “Boom”.
Boom stands alone as the “weightless” system that allowed me to instantly turn the “sow’s ear” formed by a large-scale distributed array of “peaky-sounding” ceiling speakers into the smooth-sounding “silk purse” that distributed seamless, top-quality, full-spectrum “dinner music” from my MacBook pro to over a thousand diners…
…And that “Boom Preset” remains, for return engagements.
As for “the catch”…
…I’m still waiting.
