    Second to none

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    It's my second Apogee (I own MIC which I love). I'll just say this: no latency and no hum. Almost unreal. Crystal clear signal. Absolutely brilliant.

    Apogee JAM - A Fantastic Device

    • Written by from Carol Stream

    I bought this unit, plugged it in - it worked perfectly right off the bat. No drivers to install. I could not have asked for a better result. I highly recommend the Apogee JAM. It is however a little pricey — but as they say — you get what you pay for.

    It Works Great First and Every Time !!!

    • Written by from Kings Park

    It's true it works great right out of the box. The first time I used it I had so much fun I didn't even realize I had been playing it for over 2 hours. I can finaly play my electric guitar in my house again. This lets me play like I am kickin my amp up full volume, and not disturb anyone .
    I LOVE IT !!!

    Great product! Love it!

    • Written by from Toronto

    Just upgraded to the Apogee Jam and have been loving it. So far I have used it with Ampkit and GarageBand and it works seamlessly. Easy setup and easy to use. Would recommend to any guitar player looking for mobility or the ability to mess around with different setups.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Hopkinton

    I just got this today, and I can already tell it is a brilliant product. It worked right out-of-the-box, with only a little bit of fiddling. The only gripe I have isn't really with the Jam, it's with GarageBand. I feel like GarageBand should have a button or switch that turns the input on, or off. As it is, I have to exit the app and re-enter until the light on the jam turns green. Not a big problem, just a thought.
    Overall great device! I would recommend it to anyone.

    Sounds great

    • Written by from montreal

    I first bought the Peavey Ampkit Link and I was not impressed because it is very noisy. I have just received the Jam and it is way superior. I use it with the Amkit App for iPad (which I recommend). With the Jam, the sound is so clean; no need for a Noise Gate. It does not require batteries. The light that tells you whether your input is too high makes setting it up very easy. It feels more sturdy too. It is more expensive but you get what you pay for. No doubt why Apple sells it and recommends it.

    Fantastic device!!

    • Written by from Everett

    I have a Apogee Duet on my IMac and I just love it so when it came time to get something for my iPad and iPhone the JAM was preferred product. I am stunned by the sound quality! 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!

    Have the new iPad?

    • Written by from Calgary

    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.

    Outstanding Interface

    • Written by from Westlake Village

    I have used this interface for both Guitars and Bass Guitars. It's got fantastic sound far superior than interfaces I've used in the past. On the negative side, it does not have direct hardware play through. However, performance with a modern Mac should make this less of an issue and a nonissue for most...

    I'm impressed!

    • Written by from Oshawa

    iPad2 or iMac, effortless connection and really amazing sound quality through a good set of headphones. I must admit I was expecting run of the mill, noisy sound. Not so. A very pleasant surprise.

    Simply Superb

    • Written by from Bandon

    I had my eye on this for a while, but was always turned off by the price. I tried homemade connectors, and the iRig, and even plugging the audio out from my amp into my Mac, but everything i tried gave so much noise, it was unbearable to play. So i finally caved and bought this, and wow! the quality is amazing! there is absolutely no noise, no interference, and the tone is so crisp and beautiful, i can't tell the difference between this with a Mac and decent speakers and my 15W Vox Valvetronix Amp. I used it on the iPad too, and this plus gargeband for the iPad is just a joy to play, i can take my guitar anywhere without having to lug an amp around, and those 2W mini-amps are lousy quality, and noise-ridden and the iPad is almost as loud. It works great with Logic Pro on the Mac, my main software and of course garageband

    Would highly recommend 10/10

    Great Little Interface!

    • Written by from Richmond Hill

    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!

    Works great with Mac and ipad!

    Wife scored serious brownie points with JAM!!!!

    • Written by from Marina Del Rey

    Got Apogee JAM for Christmas and I LOVE it!! Had trouble connecting at first but I called Apogee and they walked me through updating the firmware. It was a pretty painless process!! Working great now and the sound quality is unreal! I can't believe I'm getting these tones on my iPhone!!!! Hahaha..... don't know how I'm gonna get any work done now! Tried connecting one of my keyboards last night and it worked too!! Now I'm on a mission to try connecting all of my different gear! Best Christmas present I've gotten in years!

    Brilliant, but flawed

    • Written by from St Austell

    I've never heard my Telecaster sound so good; really lovely quality tone. But beware; like a couple of other people here, I have serious connectivity problems. It can be solved by plugging/uplugging the USB end of the 30pin cord from the Apogee, and eventually it's recognised. I can always get it to work if I keep at it, but frankly, for £80, this should just work. This is on an iPad 2 running the latest IOS with an up to date Garageband. I get the same problem with Ampkit, so it isn't just Garageband.
    Apogee are sending me another 30 pin lead, so we'll see...

    Amazing!!

    • Written by from Basking Ridge

    I say it is a little exspensive but it is completely worth it. I took it out of the box plugged it into my guitar then into my iPad and it was crazy good. If u are using garage band like me, if you explore the app itself, you can make it sound perfect. With sooooo many options.

    perfect for ipad, not so much for osx

    • Written by from West Pennant Hills

    on my ipad it works like a charm, get shredder and garageband, they both rock and transform your ipad in any set of amp+stompboxes

    on osx it seems delayed and I actually got in a situation where whatever I hit on my guitar, it was about 3 seconds off, don't know yet if that's a problem with the jam or just with any digital input being processed by garageband on osx. But if you're going to use an ipad and plug that into your amp, this is the best stompbox/amp replacement you can get, $110 or so for every shredding combination out there sure beats buying stomboxes ;-)
