Air Music Technology originally created Boom as part of the Creative Collection of instrument plug-ins included as part of Avid Pro Tools. As the popularity of Pro Tools grew, more and more musicians and producers relied on the incredible sonic firepower of this amazing Drum Machine. Boom continued to evolve, and demand grew.
Boom features a slick modern interface that pays homage to the most popular vintage drum machines of the past.
It includes a diverse collection of 10 different classic electronic drum kits, offering variations on the classic 808 and 909 kits, more aggressive Dance and Urban-style kits and a powerful retro style kit modelled on the concept of a ‘CR78 merged with a 606’.
Each kit contains 10 different drums, you can adjust:
• the panning,
• and decay of each drum within a kit.
Each drum channel also contains a special tuning screw that can be turned to make a sonic adjustment, specific to a particular drum. This tweaking ability provides for nearly limitless possibilities with a user-friendly interface.
For instant inspiration, over 50 presets are included :
• classic electronic / urban musical genres.
Boom also has an on-board sequencer that enables you to create and trigger your own patterns, which can be saved and recalled as presets.
The Matrix display in the top left enables you to program a pattern, but if you prefer you can also use the keys along the bottom, this time with Pattern Edit mode selected.
