OVERVIEW

Plug and play guitar interface with Apogee conversion.

JAM brings the legendary sound quality of Apogee to iPad, iPhone and Mac. Now guitarists can have a pocket-sized, plug in and play interface at an unprecedented price and experience ultimate tone with the guitar amps and effects in Apple's GarageBand software or other compatible applications.

Apogee JAM is a premium digital converter featuring PureDIGITAL technology which delivers your guitar's true tone to your iPad or Mac without compromise. JAM is the first high quality interface that makes a digital connection to both iOS devices and Mac. You will notice the sonic difference between JAM and other similar products immediately.

Who is JAM for?
JAM is great for beginners and advanced players who want a high quality guitar sound for practicing, recording, or just jamming on both iPad and Mac.

Ready to rock-status and level indication
It's easy to tell if JAM is connected properly by the status LED on the top panel. If it's green, you are ready to rock and the light becomes your input level indicator. If it turns red, you are rocking too hard and you need to turn your gain down with the control knob.

Crank it up and dial it in with easy level control
JAM features an input gain control knob. This rotary style wheel is conveniently located on the side of JAM for easy thumb access and allows you to dial in the level of your guitar without accessing software.

Did you know?
JAM is a true digital device featuring special circuitry designed specifically for guitar and bass. The Apogee engineers responsible for JAM's sound quality have created professional audio hardware found in recording studios around the world and heard on countless hit records.

Comments about Apogee JAM Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and Mac:

I guess I expected better materials for this price but the case is all plastic and feels/looks cheap and it wouldn't take much to break it. There should be some kind of clip or a way to attach it to the guitar, iPad, iPhone or belt. Instead you get a strip of Velcro. You get a quick start folder with very little info and no software. The sound quality is great and it is easy to use out of the box.

    Comments about Apogee JAM Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and Mac:

    Apogee Jam is a good sounding, easy to use and easy to connect interface. It came with both 30 pin and lightning cables, which is good, because I have iPads that use both of those connections.

    When I need to lay down guitar or bass parts in a song, I connect the Apogee Jam to the iPad, then I use an amp sim, my current favorite sim is BIAS!

    Then I record the result into Auria. After I am done laying down all of the guitar and bass tracks, I export all of the audio into Logic for mixdown.

    Apogee Jam makes it possible to lay down great sounding guitar and bass tracks virtually anywhere.

      It goes wonderfully with Amplitube and Garageband! I just wish I could have more power behind the sound I get. But hey it is just a little computer.

      Lots of bang for the money! Does a great job with garage band for electric guitar on I-pad 3, but I also have used it with a tabletop mini analog mixer and SM58 for vocals thru clean amp apps with good results!

      Comments about Apogee JAM Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and Mac:

      The apogee jam might be the best equipment money I have ever spent. I am using a souped up macbook air as my main recording device. I am currently recording my own album using bare-bones equipment. I run everything into the jam. Guitars, bass, mics, you name it! If you can put 1/4 jack into it, it seems to take it. If you are recording 1 track at a time and on a budget, this is what you've been waiting for. I have dropped it once and it kept working fine, but I would not want to try it a second time. I keep mine in a tough eyeglasses case with its cable and that keeps it safe during travel. If you are looking for a simple recording device to use with your mac device that can deliver fantastic sound, break out the money now. I know some people have complained about the price, but for all the uses for it + the quality I think it's actually a deal.

        Jam works well with iPhone, which i can use to rehearse. It has noticeable latency when using it with Logic on my iMac, even with Low Latency Mode.

        Comments about Apogee JAM Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and Mac:

        35+ yrs. as a musician, 10 yrs. independent recording artist. This is by far the very best quality when using an iPad in conjunction with Garage Band or other recording software. The secret to the quality is that this is plugged into the lightning port not the headphone port, this makes all the difference in the world. It's 3x's the price of other similar pieces, but it also delivers 10x's the quality of signal without having to put up with noise or glitches. If it cost too much to afford right off the bat, save your money and wait to buy this before wasting your money on the other designed pieces. Buy this once and you'll never have to worry about this piece of the sound chain.

        Comments about Apogee JAM Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and Mac:

        This replaced an old analog input I had been using for years, that had terrible latency.

        I don't notice a bit of latency with the Jam. Great product. Easy to use.

        My biggest complaint is that it's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for.
