"Looking to get super serious about that recording habit? Add this USB audio interface to your wish list. The command center packs four channels of analog / digital conversion, six balanced outputs, a headphone jack, monitor controls, MIDI I/O, full-color displays and QuickTouch pads for sorting through all those connections."
"Well it’s that time of the year again! And FutureMusic comes bearing gifts. Well, not actual gifts, but FutureMusic-Approved holiday suggestions for that special DJ, producer or musician in your life."
"Record podcasts, home demos or album cuts on this sturdy studio-quality microphone – which directly connects to the iPad, iPhone and Mac – straight into GarageBand."
"Get studio quality sound right at home with the MiC by Apogee Digital! This is the first studo quality microphone to make a direct digital connection to iPad, iPhone & Mac and great for musicians on the go!."
"Only about the size of an iPhone, MiC is a studio-quality microphone that plugs in directly
to an iPad, iPhone or Mac. The MiC can record anywhere, capturing any range of sounds
you can create, whether it be vocals, voice-overs, instruments or interviews."
"The slick metal MiC is iPhone and iPad-enabled so I can quickly plug it to take with me to any event. It's an inexpensive but quality choice for amateur filmmakers, avid concertgoers and at-home podcasters."
"The first thing I noticed when setting up Apogee’s MiC is that it’s built the way a microphone should be. I’ve worked with many in my time, be it in bands, shows, plays, etc. I’ve been on both sides of them. And although I by no means consider myself a sound expert, I know that quality mics have a certain feel to them. A certain weight."
"As the Gorillaz, One Like Son and other artists have proven, in the right hands, the iPad is more than just a consumption tool. Help a friend or loved one find their muse with some music accessories for the iPad, such as the Apogee Jam, which records digital audio from an electric guitar or other 1/4-inch input, or the iKlip, a microphone stand adapter for the tablet.
"I’ve seen very few gadgets that are as easy to use as this one. Plug it in, it’s detected, simple instructions, and you’re off! If you’re a Garageband user the input works fantastic allowing you to quickly begin recording."
"The chances are good that there’s a guitar player in your family. The Apogee JAM lets someone combine their favorite electric guitar with their favorite smartphone or tablet."
"Jam is small enough to fit in a guitar case and provides an instant interface connection between any guitar/bass instrument. I like the LED metering for status/input level monitoring, the simple control knobs, instrument pre-amp gain up to 40dB—plenty of gain for low output piezo pickups, the 44.1/48 kHz and 24-bit A/D conversion plus the locking output connector."
"I’ve had my guitars for years. One of them is an electric acoustic, but I don’t have an amp. Thanks to the Apogee Jam, I was able to take my old 12 string Yamaha and plug it into my iPad. I was extremely impressed with this, as will pretty much anyone on your gift list that plays guitar. It allows you to work with Garageband, ToneJAM and several other great apps."
"Apogee extends its sound quality to iPad, iPhone and Mac with its new JAM. Guitarists have a pocketsized plug in and play interface to record those spur of the moment ideas and even the well-thought out ones. JAM is a digital converter featuring PureDIGITAL technology."
"This is a gift not only to the giftee, but also to you, which justifies the $99 price-tag. The Jam connects a guitar to an iPad, iPhone or Mac via USB, and it does it digitally for maximum quality.
"The best digital recording interface in the business is sleek, travel-ready and costs a fraction of a home studio.
