The Jam That Started It All

In 2010 Jam was introduced in Apple stores worldwide as the first high quality digital interface to connect guitars and instruments with Mac and IOS devices.  Jam set a new standard in mobile recording by combining Apogee’s renowned conversion specs and components into a simple and portable design.

Jam+ continues the evolution in the series bringing the best advances in Apogee’s design and engineering into an all new metal chassis with enhanced PureDIGITAL circuitry for the greatest ‘true tone’ audio resolution.  Jam+ now includes a powerful headphone output with zero latency monitoring and overdrive mode to make practise and recording sessions better than ever.

Connect-it-all

Connect it All

Connect any instrument-level input you can imagine to your computer or iOS device using Jam+.  Synth and keyboard, electric guitar and bass, dynamic microphone and acoustic instrument with a pickup - it all works with Jam+.

Keep it Pristine & Clean

The PureDIGITAL signal path to smooth, noiseless tone, Clean Mode is the ideal setting for pristine, unaffected instrument recording.

Put it in OverDrive

Drive Mode gives you that responsive amp and pedal feel from subtle to snarling distortion and makes virtual amps and fx sound more like the real thing.

Transform your pristine direct signal into a rich, warm overdrive that can provide everything from a clean boost to a thick distortion in the tradition of the most coveted vintage amps and stompboxes. Dialing up Drive Mode also makes your favorite virtual amps and fx sound much more realistic. Drive Mode gives you great tone for direct, zero-latency recording.

The Blend feature lets you play and record with zero latency

Jam+ also features an ⅛” stereo headphone output and Blend function for zero latency monitoring. The Blend setting allows you to easily adjust how much direct instrument input you hear mixed with software playback, enabling you to dial in the perfect mix.

Listen with More Level

Whether you’re monitoring as you play and record, or streaming music from your favorite app, the stereo output on Jam+ dramatically improves the playback quality of your audio. With high resolution sample rates up to 96k and ample headroom, Jam+ delivers incredible clarity and plenty of volume to your headphones or powered speakers.

It’s an instrument input, AD and DA converter

Jam+ combines an analog overdrive circuit, instrument preamp and high quality A/D and D/A converters into one compact device.  Apogee has designed each part of Jam+ to deliver the highest quality signal possible with the lowest noise – we call this PureDIGITAL.
