Boom Recorder 7 released
VOSGames has released Boom Recorder 7, an easy-to-use audio field recorder that can be used in combination with high resolution audio hardware to record up to 64 channels with timecode. The software can record isolated tracks for all actors and boom operators when recording for film/TV, and users can feed Boom Recorder the timecode signal on an audio input to sync sound to picture. Boom Recorder adds a timecode that users can import natively into Final Cut Pro with the bundled QuickTime BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) Importer component, and the application can record from one file to the next on each 2GB boundary resulting in hours of recording on end. Boom Recorder 7 requires Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later, and is available in Lite ($45), Pro ($260), and Studio ($515) editions.
