No, there’s no spillover mode for BOUM, spillover is only applicable on delays and reverbs.
There’s a relay inside our units for true bypass purpose. So the click noise you can hear is normal. If it annoys you, you can use the Spillover relay mode, but you won’t have a true bypass when ACTIVE is off.
If you experienced also a click on your speakers (without signal passing thru), that can be a DC leakage from your mixer, audio interface, source,…Try another setup to identify from where this leakage is coming.
Also the Spillover mode will cancel the pop noise coming from a DC leakage.
Hi, unfortunately there’s no CC for the Tap Tempo. I add it to the TODO list !
No problem. Maybe your BAM is in Spillover or Aux bypass mode ? In these 2 modes, the sound is muted when ACTIVE is off, so there’s no VU. It’s can’t be fixed but firmware because it’s a hardware limitation.
Yes, sorry, this new feature isn’t documented yet. The second line let you set the gate release time.16 November 2021 at 17 h 39 min in reply to: BIM – Delay pot doesn’t work when receiving midi timecode #84883
When it receives MIDI clock, BIM sets the right RANGE parameter and virtually move the DELAY pot in order to reach the right delay time. You can only change the DIVISION parameter when BIM is in sync.
Thanks for pointing the size CC problem in thru mode. I’m aware that there’s some problems with the Thru mode, I should work on it on a next revision.
There’s no bug here. All 3 units can display a VU meter (see the display mode setting on the User Manual), not only in bypass but whenever you’re not changing a parameter. BIM can also display its LFO speed which creates this nice LEDs dance !
I have a beta for BOUM with a Gate release time parameter, and a MIDI bug fix.

The Chorus parameter adds modulation to some of the reverb internal delays.
This kind of modulation was inherent of the first reverb algorithms (EMT 250, Lexicon 224,…) to avoid metallic ringing on the reverb tail.
Like other parameters, it applies on all the reverb algorithms. You can try to change from Off to Strong with a long reverb decay time to listen the action of this parameter.
The Chorus type is a 8-voices chorus along with a reverb. So you can also add the chorus parameter to the chorus type ! I agree that it can be confusing.
During the development of BAM, I tried to code a shimmer algo but I wasn’t happy with the sound. It sounded very cheap compared to the others algos. So I gave up !
The first version of the “tap to reverb time” was not very accurate.
There were a lot of discrepancies between the different algos.
That’s why I removed it. I will work on it, but unfortunatley this fall will be very busy with new OTO products & ideas !
Answer to your email about this issue was sent.
If you didn’t get it, please let let me know.
The noise level seems normal for me (the 8-bit conversion noise is more obvious with simple sounds like sinewaves,…). You can upgrade the signal to noise ratio by increasing the DRIVE until you see the BYPASS switch going orange on peaks, and/or lowering the LPF frequency to remove the 8-bit noise.
Thanks for your suggestion. The feedback limiter is an analog hardware feature so we can’t add new settings on it with a firmware upgrade. Sorry !
All the best,
