Solid, flexible, hi-fidelity
The Jam far exceeds the other connectors by Griffin, iRig and the like. No feedback, solid connection to the Pad, and gives my cheaper axes a nice “direct box” punch of fatness. Further, this can connect via USB to computer–no one trick pony here. Apogee’s got a great reputation for a reason. Perhaps would like a way to anchor the device to a table when using with the Pad. Works great with GarageBand.

I can dig it
“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.”
Christopher from Guitar Center
Small size, Big sound
“I surprised how easy this was to plug into my iPad2 and record into garageband. The should quality of the amps in G’band with the Jam rivaled any pedal effects pluggin I’ve used to date. Great investment for another way of getting your guitar into the digital realm.”
Skip the iRig & AmpKit…get the JAM!
“Out of the box simple! Plug one end into the iPad dock port and your guitar in the JAM input and off you go. Has a handy input level control with colored LED’s to let you know if output signal gets too hot.Plugged in my Tele and was recording a song in GarageBand in minutes. Sound quality was excellent… ”
Brian from New Orleans
Absolutely LOVE it!
“The title says it all. I love my Apogee JAM. I am also a huge proponent of Agile Partner/Peavey’s AmpKit, which this works perfectly with. However, if you plug it in while using AmpKit, you’ll have to close and open the app. No big deal, though. Also, compared to the Amplitube iRig I used to have, the sound quality difference is phenomenally better…”
MS from CHURCH HILL
Amazing writing/jamming device
“Thanks to the combination of the Apogee Jam and GarageBand for iPad. I’ve been writing a lot more music. It’s incredible how good the guitar signal and the amps sound with this set up. Thank you Apogee and Apple.”
SR from North Hollywood
Great fidelity for recording heart sounds too!
“For medical education, I’ve been missing a way to digitally record heart sounds from my thinklabs stethoscope. as the iPhone audio input cuts off low frequencies, which are part of those sounds. The JAM has an excellent low frequency response, and combined easily with the peavey ampkit for recording.”
TB from Mountain Top
“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.”
Frank from Sweetwater
Great Practice Interface
“I couldn’t be happier with the money I spent on this interface. It’s very mobile and when I travel it’s great for practice and getting down ideas. It works very good with Ampkit which was developed by Peavy but the add-ons can get pricy. For what the jam is intended for, it won’t let you down.”
Madseason from Musicians Friend
Pro Gear for cheap
“With Lion and iLife 11, GarageBand and Apogee JAM marry perfectly. Latency is non existent. Gain is adjustable on the hardware. GarageBand covers all other functions. It has a small hardware footprint and a small software print also, there is none. Use it with Logic, GarageBand, any software. Try it!!!”
Robert from Guitar Center
“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.”
Rudy Mikula from Waxahachie, TX
Great Little Interface!
“I was using the iRig input for both ipad and iphone, but it seemed like there was always too much noise regardless of the guitar pickups, so i decided to get this device assuming a dock connector/ usb connection would be less noisy, and it works perfectly! I’m getting no noise and great sound quality for the device!”
Evgeny from Richmond Hill
Have the new iPad?
“Originally I purchased an iRig with my new guitar and my New iPad. Problems matched those discussed in the Apple Support Community. I was able return the iRig and got the Jam. Excellent choice. Worth the difference in price.”
David from Calgary
“The one thing that really impressed me about the idea of recording to my IDevice was that there is no buzz, no 60 cycle hum! I have a stock 1972 Telecast Thinline with 40 year old wiring and it has never sounded so clean. Apogee has impressed me once again with we’ll built great sounding product!”
