In this video, Peter Frampton can be seen playing electric guitar and recording a song using the Apogee JAM guitar input. He says: "I’ve always been an amp guy. You know, I’m a Marshall and Fender and all things lovely, with tubes and stuff. The [Apogee] JAM definitely has its place and being able to be in my hotel room at 3 in the morning when I wake up with an idea - It’s pretty cool to be able to actually not just play my acoustic, but pick up my electric and get a really decent… I mean sounds have come a long way, the plugins and the guitar sounds and everything. It’s much smaller, and much, much lighter than my Marshall rig. It’s always with me in my go-to bag and on the road."more
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.
This is another awesome product I have from Apogee. It's the easiest, most basic way of recording any instrument directly into a Mac, iPhone or iPad. Just plug in, adjust the gain and start recording! Works for guitars, keyboards, ukuleles, bass, even dynamic microphones if you have an XLR to 1/4" adapter. The sound is great too, of course!
My guitar teacher gave me this during a beginners recording class that I took, and I have to say that for the simplicity it works pretty well. I have an older mac, and so the issues that I have had could be my computer, but sometimes the light will light up but no audio will be transferred to garage band. This is probably just my computer, but overall this product is a decent input device that can be used on the go.
