"Not Our Fave Purchase"

Overall: 3 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
We wanted to give Apogee a try,as we needed a buss powered via USB-C interface for a new laptop. We use an Antelope Audio Discrete Synergy 4 as our main studio interface,previously used an RME Babyface. Our travel/remote rig laptop uses a Mackie Producer 2-2,which is dependable tank. The Boom sounds great as a sound card but rates a 3/5 everywhere else. Argh...excruciating-- the amount of effort it takes to register the Boom's software is ridiculous. Compared to that old Mackie,feeling disappointed in the Apogee experience. Overall,should have went w Antelope Audio's USB-C unit; a little more dough but worth it. Same intensive registering via iLok as AA but nowhere near the payoff. The included fx bundle is just okay,the good stuff cost you extra. Preamp is the saving grace.
