30 October 2018

Audio recorder for live events, film.


Boom Recorder Pro 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 is 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 128 (Boom Recorder Pro) tracks continuously for many hours.

  • 16-bit, 24-bit integer, and 32-bit float sample formats.
  • 48 kHz, 96 kHz, 192 kHz, and other sample rates, with optional fake pull up for each.
  • Broadcast WAVE Format (BFW) audio file format; compatible with most digital audio and video editing workstations.
  • Can either jam or continuous sync against timecode signal read from any audio channel, or use wall clock time in cases where no timecode signal is available.
  • Long recordings are continued over multiple 2 GB audio files.
  • multi-polyphonic file handling; allows multiple copies of audio in mono, stereo, and polyphonic audio files.
  • Stores metadata such as project, scene, take, roll, date, and track names in the iXML chunk and in the sound reports.
  • Solution for reading BWF files into Final Cut Pro with timecode.

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 (Pro or Lite) you would like to order.

$111 for this???? A bit too minimalistic for that kind of dough, don't you think? At best, this is a $40 app ...tops. Get real. And good luck.

Unlike other commets here, I've had a great experience with Boom Recorder, which has taken over as my chosen app for in-field recording. My needs are simple: 24bit 48KHz recording from various Mics via an Edirol UA-25. I want a high quality uncompressed file format, and appreciate the ability to record a couple of versions and have a 'log file' of what happened. QT just can't do this out of the box. I have SoundTrack Pro, but it seemed to hiccup, making otherwise good takes unusable. Then there's little things: the meters on input don't match the meters on output. It's not viable for recording. Sorry. No Cigar. Boom Recorder on the other hand turns my PowerBook into a sort of Nagra - it just works. I love the new Cmd-Opt-T split take feature. Furthermore, the Time-Of-Day time code recorded in the audio is preserved in Final Cut Pro - even the new CAF format doesn't do that. The only reason I can't give it a perfect score is that I really want to monitor what's been recorded. It's vital for STP because when it drops the ball you can hear it. But I've been using this app intensively as of late, and it's won my confidence.

$30 for QuickTime Pro, which enables recording functionality in QuickTime and supports OSX compatible device. $0 for "Audio In" , a free audio recorder. What's this have that others don't? SMPTE. Truly SMPTE is an essential for professional recording work. I know that CoreAudio has support for SMPTE. So theoretically, it shouldn't be hard to add support for SMPTE when coding using CoreAudio for recording. I question wether the price of this program reflects real-world development costs. Of course, if I had the time to make a better app then I would. So there we are.

The application BoomRecorder has unexpectedly quit. The system and other applications have not been affected. Would you like to submit a bug report to Apple? ... Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001) Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS (0x0001) at 0xfffeff00 Thread 0 Crashed: 0 0xfffeff00 0 + 0xfffeff00 1 0x92eef460 -[NSCustomView nibInstantiate] + 0x174 2 0x92e9aa24 -[NSIBObjectData instantiateObject:] + 0xbc 3 0x92ea1a50 -[NSIBObjectData nibInstantiateWithOwner:topLevelObjects:] + 0x88 4 0x92f93808 loadNib + 0xfc 5 0x92eea9f4 +[NSBundle(NSNibLoading) _loadNibFile:nameTable:withZone:ownerBundle:] + 0x2e8 6 0x92f698f8 +[NSBundle(NSNibLoading) loadNibFile:externalNameTable:withZone:] + 0x9c 7 0x92f7b0f8 +[NSBundle(NSNibLoading) loadNibNamed:owner:] + 0x174 8 0x92f69760 NSApplicationMain + 0x174 9 nl.vosgames.BoomRecorder 0x00002848 _start + 0x158 (crt.c:272) 10 nl.vosgames.BoomRecorder 0x000026ec start + 0x3c ... Enough said, however, I'd like to continue... Reading the manual makes it very clear that there is no sample editor. For $111, I would expect to get Adobe Audition at least. -or Audacity, which is free software! If you can't edit the samples, what is the purpose of such program ? (I'm speaking as a programmer and a Audio/Video editor!) Not rated, because it crashes.

Elementary question here: What interface is used to get the discrete audio inputs into the Mac? Manufacturers? Models? What do you recommend? It would seem that the mating of this software to that hardware would be esssential -- let the software release is silent on this. Thanks.
