The Boom 2 Remote turns your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch into a remote control for Boom 2 on your Mac.
All things being equal(ized)
Syncing the Boom 2 Remote is simple. Just launch the app and it scans for any Mac computers using Boom 2 on your network. Then, just by clicking "Allow" on your laptop or desktop machine, you can control all your audio remotely.
Using Boom 2 Remote you can control the Boom 2 equalizer from your iOS device. Its main display enables you to adjust both the system volume and the boosted audio that Boom offers from a handy, onscreen dial.
An icon on this screen also lets you pull down a menu to switch between iTunes, VLC, QuickTime, and Spotify players. Once selected you can control playback with Play, Next, and Previous virtual buttons.
Full control, remotely
The other two main features that Boom 2 Remote can control are Boom 2’s Equalizer and Effects. And yes, again, these are both easily accessed from clear icons on the main screen.
As you can see in the review, setting these correctly is crucial to getting the best audio experience with Boom 2. If you set it up poorly, playback can be tinny or muffled – but this can be entirely dependent on what you are listening too. Thus, careful management of the options can be important if you are switching between voice and music tracks – or even different genres of music.
Here is one of the main benefit of Boom 2 Remote. The app allows you to easily change the system audio without having Boom 2’s main interface get in the way of video playback.
Boom, you’ve got to grab this
If you are using Boom 2, then the Boom 2 Remote is a must have – and a brilliant free value-add to the premium equalizer.
