BOOM-1 Tactile Transducer Processor

Now you can feel your monitor mix, too. BOOM-1 is designed to dramatically enhance a performer's personal mixing experience by adding powerful, optimally-processed low-frequency tactile information to any in-ear or headphone monitor mix.

Designed by the personal monitor experts, the BOOM System is easy to use and provides a natural low-frequency extension to your monitoring environment. The BOOM System products are compatible with all Aviom personal mixing systems and can easily be connected to any audio device that can provide a headphone or line-level output.

 

Front Panel

  • 1/4-inch TRS Stereo Headphone In and Thru
  • Strength control with Signal and Clip LED indicators
  • Three selectable Feel presets adjust multiple DSP settings for user-preferred Tight to Loose feel
  • Transducer Mute with LED (easily compare your mix with and without the tactile transducer engaged)
  • Seamless integration with any personal mixing system

Rear Panel

  • Locking Transducer Out
  • Tailor the response of the BOOM-1 to a variety of tactile transducers with the DSP Profile settings
  • XLR mono input for direct connection to the A360 Personal Mixer
  • XLR mono out provides the DSP processed signal for connection to an external power amplifier for driving large tactile transducer arrays

 

Made for musicians using in-ears

In-ear monitors provide a detailed and personal monitoring experience. Adding a well processed low-frequency tactile transducer (also known as a 'bass shaker') to a drum throne, keyboard seat, guitarist's stool, performance platform, or even to the floor of a stage, allows the body to feel bass frequencies, adding realism to the mix. The BOOM-1 Tactile Transducer Processor brings Aviom-optimized DSP to the tactile experience.

Being able to hear and feel your mix can significantly improve the user experience when using in-ear monitors and/or headphones, providing powerful sound usually achieved only with high volume and large, high quality speaker cabinets.

Tactile transducers are especially beneficial to performers using electronic drum kits, as well as guitar and bass amp simulators. Why? Because playing an acoustic drum kit or an electric guitar or bass through an amp actually vibrates the floor and this vibration becomes part of the live performance experience. When you switch to an electronic drum kit or a modeled amp system without speaker cabinets, those natural vibrations are eliminated. ...Until now.

A Great Combination

Using personal mixers and IEMs/headphones along with tactile transducers allows performers to achieve powerful, exciting monitor mixes at lower in-ear levels. This reduces sound-level-induced fatigue allowing longer, more enjoyable performances while also promoting long-term hearing health.

 

BOOM System Products

Aviom makes adding tactile transducers to your monitoring system as easy as possible by providing a set of products that are designed to be plug-and-play simple. We've partnered with some of the industry's leading manufacturers to offer tactile-enhanced versions of their products that can be directly connected to the BOOM-1 Tactile Transducer Processor.

The CTT-1 Clamp-On Tactile Transducer has a universal mount that makes connecting a tactile transducer to the stem of most drum thrones or stools easy. At the heart of the CTT-1 is a premium ButtKicker® transducer, and an integrated locking speaker cable ensures a solid connection to the BOOM-1 processor.

New to Tactile Transducers?

A tactile transducer is similar in concept to a speaker (without the paper cone) and is designed to be most effective reproducing low frequencies like those produced in music by bass instruments and drums (typically 200Hz and below).

They are also quite effective when used for games and with sound effects for movies. But since a tactile transducer is designed without a speaker diaphragm, it can be used to allow you to feel low frequency vibrations while making very little audible sound.

 

That makes a tactile transducer a great addition to a personal mixing system when performers are using in-ear monitors. The frequency spectrum is more complete, and you'll be able to monitor at lower volumes while retaining all the fullness and excitement of performing at higher volumes.

 

Personal Mixers + InEars + BOOM

Compatible with Aviom's industry standard A360, A320, and all other Personal Mixers, the BOOM-1 can be connected easily to the line- or headphone-level audio outputs of a performer's Personal Mixer.

 

It's Simple To Set Up

BOOM-1 can be added to any personal mixer or to mixing consoles. All that's required is a stereo headphone output or a dedicated mono line-level output. BOOM-1 takes care of the rest.

Connecting BOOM-1 to your existing system is easy:

Connect the TRS stereo headphone output from a Personal Mixer to the BOOM-1 Tactile Transducer Processor's headphone-level input.

For A360 Personal Mixers there's even a dedicated XLR line-level input on the BOOM-1 rear panel. Just connect a standard mic cable from the the A360's Mono Mix Out jack instead of using the Headphone output.

For mixing consoles, connect any aux send to the BOOM line input.

Connect the Transducer Out to your tactile transducer using a locking-style speaker cable.

Setup

The examples below show various Personal Mixers connected to the BOOM-1 Tactile Transducer Processor. The system diagrams use a drum throne as an example, but you can use any tactile transducer equipped seat, stool, performance platform, or stage instead. The connections between the BOOM-1 processor and transducer input are the same.
