How to improve the sound of music and enhance the sound volume on the Mac [Video]




Many people like to listen to music loudly, and those who have no neighbors behind, do it again and at any time of the day or night. But how sad is if “moments mood” you can not adjust the sound the way you want, and all because there is no suitable equalizer.


On a Mac solution may be to Boom 2. The developers have positioned this app as an advanced sound equalizer for OS X Yosemite. The program is loaded from the directory is not Mac App Store, and on its own website developers. For some reason the application with the stated functionality is not welcomed by Apple.

Boom 2 adds to the upper menu OS X icon drop-down menu, with which you can change the sound level of the usual slider. Hence it is called the main program window. It consists of two functional tabs and two additional settings startup and use of social networks.


The first main tab Boom 2 is designed to adjust the sound. Located on top of the slider “The volume Boom». Developers identified the main levels – the minimum (0%) and maximum (100%) and Boom (150%). Moving the slider to the far right, you can significantly increase the volume.

Just below is a 11/31-band equalizer and 17 presets. One of the presets is personal, it is set by default, depending on the model of Mac. In the case of the MacBook Air – setting one, with the Mac mini – is quite different. EQ adjustment is made automatically when the program starts. 16 remaining presets suitable for different genres and types of multimedia content – a classic, electronics, jazz, film, pop, rock, film, dubstep, vocals and more. Selects the appropriate preset (or customize your own) and listen.


At the bottom configures effects. There are two options available to improve sound – Setting and accuracy. The first creates the effect of surround sound with echo and reverb. Purpose of the second on hearing could not be determined.


Besides the main purpose – improving the sound and the gain – Boom 2 offers the function “File gain.” This is the second tab of the program. If you have a music track or movie with a low level of sound, enough to move it to the program window and press “Strengthen files.” After a short initial file will lie in its place, and the new, “pumped” – in the default directory with the music in the folder with the name of the application and the prefix «_boosted». The program supports the formats mp3, m4a, aiff, caf, wav, mov, mp4, m4v, 3gp, 3g2 and dv.


How Boom 2 affects the autonomy MacBook, hard to say. But what effect will – no doubt: the use of even a native equalizer for the iPhone and iPad have a negative impact on their battery life.
