True amp sound. More gain. Higher resolution.

Go ahead, crank it up. JAM 96k brings classic boutique amp sound and feel straight to your guitar, so you can dial-in lush tones without sounding like you’re using amp simulation software. We took guitar input technology to a new level with JAM 96k by using a discrete, Class-A JFET input stage to emulate the warmth and character of a tube amp circuit. With 24-bit, 96kHz recording ability, JAM 96k lets you capture all of your best licks in high definition – from pristine cleans to soaring, overdriven sustain – at the highest pro-level standards.

These sound samples compare JAM 96k to another HD guitar interface. Note the additional gain (volume) available with JAM 96k and the rich, overdriven amp tone.

Apogee JAM with iPad Padcaster Video Rig

JAM and The Padcaster

Use JAM to record high-quality audio
for video on iPad

The iPad is an incredible tool for mobile video creation, especially when paired with accessories such as the The Padcaster. The Padcaster fits around the iPad and allows you to attach lenses, lights or audio peripherals to its surface, making it easy for anyone to capture broadcast quality videos in remote locations entirely on iPad.

The most spectacular of videos can be easily ruined by inferior sound quality. Apogee JAM can easily be attached to the side of Padcaster, providing the ability to capture professional quality audio for HD video. Simply connect JAM to the iPad and any analog microphone such as a shotgun or lavaliere to JAM’s 1/4″ input.

“...when I’m in my hotel room at 3 in the morning and I wake up with an idea, JAM sounds great… and it’s much smaller and much, much lighter than my Marshall rig.”

Apogee JAM Customer Reviews

I can dig it

GoldStars

“Yes! Finally a guitar interface for iDevices that actually works as any disriminating musician would expect. I tried the IKM iRig months ago and returned it the next day because it was pretty awful as most of the reviews indicated. I wasn’t holding out a whole lot of hope for the Apogee Jam, but I must say I am pleasantly surprised.”

Fantastic Product!

“Worked without a flaw on a iphone 4s. Used with Garageband and Daw Multitrack. It’s great that it sets itself up and that you can control the input level. Very clean and no latency issues whatsoever. You will be happy with this product. Price seems reasonable too.”

“Apogee has hit one out of the park with the Jam. I have been disappointed with other interfaces I have used with my Mac Book Pro and Garageband. The Jam is not only easy to use, but sounds great. My guitar tracks are clean and the gain control ensures that my signal is strong. Any reservations about the price evaporated once I started using it. This is a serious recording interface.”

Recording Magazine - Pocket-sized interfaces with Apogee power

"The sound quality and fidelity, low latency and ease of use that we’ve come to expect from this company are again present in these new products. I expect more and more recordings to be produced using these types of interfaces. I, for one, am hooked."

The Next Web - Apogee JAM guitar interface review

“For $99 the Jam would be an absolute steal if it only worked with your Mac. But given that I can easily switch out the interface cable and plug it into my iPhone or iPad, it seems like a near-impossible price point for the quality of audio that it produces”
