NOTE: Do NOT update to v1.3.14 as it introduces yet-another-bug that is NOT present in v1.3.13. *sigh* The bug, at least so far from my testing, blocks volume control via the keyboard. What you get is the dead volume symbol of a zero with a slash through it. (Grumble, how do they manage to mess Boom 3D up yet again?! Annoying). SO! I'm going back to nicely working v1.3.13, if I can find it in my backup stash.

Release Notes for v1.3.13, as found after installing the update and running the app: • New feature: Boom 3D can now automatically change the equalizer preset based on the app that is playing audio. This feature can be turned on in your setings! • We've fixed a bug that was causing excessive memory usage. • Minor fixes and performance improvements. - - So far so good. I'll post further if any of the recent rash of bugs (v1.3.12) show up again. - - BTW: I made a visit to their 'Support' today and had to laugh. When you try to make a support request, they don't even acknowledge that macOS 11 or 12 exist. That's how far behind their 'Support' system is. I so wish they'd get their act back together.

I am very frustrated with Boom 3d. If you are running a USB DAC, please do not buy Boom 3d. It simply will not work. I only heard distortion when USB DAC is used. Get EQMac or something else but boom 3d.

When I set BOOM 3D to start up at login, it does so every time...which is good. BUT, it opens the app every time visually on my screen and I have to click to hide it while it is on. Is there a way to have it start at login in without seeing the app on my screen but just the app icon in the menu bar on my Mac?

And... *sigh* the apparent memory leak problem is causing havoc with the Sound System Preferences. Either the Boom Audio sound output disappears OR it says it's 'Unknown'. Once it happens, it's persistent through system reboots. The workaround is stupid but it works: (1) QUIT Boom 3D app. (2) Boot Boom 3D app again. (3) Watch it ask to install its helper, again. Approve it. (4) You then get nonsense that you have to reboot your system. DON'T. But you'll find that Boom 3D isn't actually working at that point. SO! (5) QUIT Boom 3D a second time. (6) Boot Boom 3D a second time. ∑ = Tada. That buggy thing is working fine again. - - I've been attempting to get their [expletive] tech support to pay attention, but all I get are responses worthy of a BOT, named 'Amurtha'. VERY disappointing. But when I get time, I keep bugging the bot with new bug report information, whether it wants it or not. - - Then... nothing changes. I seriously doubt they have anyone doing testing over there at this point. AND the fact that they've chopped the price of the app indicates IMHO and experience that their head developer walked out and the apps gonna die. Or so I imagine. IOW: AWFUL tech support. What a shame. I love the app! . . . When it's not screwed up.

Huge memory leak problem. After about ~24 hours of use, the memory usage for this app is about 3 ~ 5 gb. I have no idea how this even passed your QA. However, the app is truly amazing the way it enhances every sound. If not for the memory leak i would definitely recommend it to my fellow developers and friends.

It's still working on M1 Macs. However, it has a quirk whereby you wake your Mac and the sound is GaRbLeD very badly. I run into this occasionally. It only happens on M1 Macs. The solution is to Quit Boom 3D, then run it again. If that doesn't clear it, reboot your Mac. Boom 3D needs an overhaul to make it directly M1 compatible. I use it all day, every day.

Just got it (v 1.3.11) and still learning what it does and doesn't do, but the visual face is terrible. Dark gray tiny numbers against black isn't my idea of easy to read.

v1.3.11(029) is a minor update from the initial v1.3.11. It features: "Minor defect fixes." - - I use Boom all day, every day on both macOS 10.14.6 and iOS 14.4.2. It's excellent. I've found the manual EQ setup to be particularly useful for my office speaker setup. Over time, Boom 3D has had bugs and quirks. But they've always ironed them out and kept adding new features. It's one of my 'must have' apps.

TLDR: Great trial, horrible purchase. Do NOT buy! I purchased this a week ago after the trial expired and it still says trial expired and doesn't let me use it. When I click on the account screen it is all white. When I try to do forgot password I get an error. I emailed their support about this 7 days ago and still haven't heard a response. I DO NOT recommend giving these unscrupulous people your money.

I have a Desktop tower 2019 Mac Pro running macOS Big Sur version 11.2.3 and I have Boom3D version 1.3.11, on the Mac System Preferences, there is a SOUND Pane for Effects, Output, and Input. I use External Headphone port for OUTPUT and Boom 3D "used to" show up here and you could modify the output volume or mute it and even change the LEFT / RIGHT balance. boom 3D no longer appears here and sometimes it FAILS to work at all. Apple or Boom or better BOTH need to work together to get macOS and Boom Cooperating MORE Complete as Boom 3D sometimes will appear after Multiple REBOOTS --- unreliable stability but SOUNDS great when it does work,

The product is fine but I've been absolutely bombarded with constant pop ups for Boom ever since. They cover almost 25% of a page so it's very annoying and interferes with viewing. The company didn't know how to get rid of them. When I asked for a refund, I never heard from them again. Very poor customer service. I guess I will just have to uninstall it to get rid of all their marketing pop ups. It's a good product but I would never recommend buying it unless you like pop ups.

Very nice app. I'd appreciate it if you could get it to work sooner because it doesn't seem to be compatible with the latest MAC-OS
