What does MICRO-BOOM mean?
What we recorded
We made use of some really rare and vintage but also modern and unique analog devices such as the Ampex AG-440 analog tape recorder from 1969, the NED Synclavier, Yamaha CS-60, Rhodes Chroma, E-Mu Emulator II, – just to mention a few of them.
Here are some of the devices we recorded to design the unique sound we had in mind.

Total War: Warhammer, ANNO 1404, The Elder Scrolls Online etc.
For the Total War: Warhammer release trailer I created some layers of the big impacts using pitched down versions of the BLACK POWDER and HISTORICAL- FIREARMS libraries. Generally speaking, whenever we are missing certain sound effects we know that they will be available in one of the many construction kits. They are absolutely irreplaceable.
I recently completed the sound design and re-recording mix on an IMAX film for the Maryland Science Center's theater in Baltimore Maryland. If it weren't for the excellent cannon and firearms recordings from BOOM's "Black Powder" and "Historical Firearms" libraries, this film would not have sounded nearly as good as it does. The variations and long-tail reverbs on the cannons were especially helpful in placing the shots in space, since most of the cannon shots take place over water. The BOOM recordings really put the huge IMAX speakers to work.
