Boom 3D and Apple Mail

Has anyone had an issue with Boom 3D and Apple Mail alert sounds? Both the new mail and sending mail alerts for me are "broken." The new mail is a muffled blip and the sending mail sound seems to be out of one speaker only and not the crossing sound. The sounds work fine when I quit Boom.

Is there a way to exclude an app from Boom 3D so this is not an issue, or is there another solution?


  • It's not specific. It's a design choice to lessen CPU and power consumption. It happens because Boom 3D (as well as Boom 2) takes some time to "detect" that something's playing and "wake up" to do its job. Try playing a song that starts instantly after a period of audio inactivity. You'll notice that the song doesn't start playing immediately.
