Boom Recorder

Boom Recorder is a software field audio-recorder. It can be used in combination with high-resolution audio hardware, intended to be used to record live stage and film set performances. It support 16, 24, and 32 bit sample formats, high sample frequencies, and 128 channel recording. It is able to decode time code signals that are fed to any audio channel, and will add this and other metadata as iXML in BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) and CAF (Core Audio Format) files.

    Release Notes: 128 channels are now handled. Channels which are not armed are shown in grey-scale. The registration code in the window now shows dashes like when it was entered. The registration window now shows more messages. The registration window also tries several different cases of the name. The "Report lost samples" option was added in preferences. If selected (which it is by default), it will stop recording when samples are lost. The unselected part is the new feature. Hold time on the meter bridge is now configurable. The soundlog window remembers its column settings.
