      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 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. As far as build quality, I would have preferred a light metal to the plastic, but I enjoy it not weighing much. Overall excellent product for amp simulationon the iPhone/iPad!

      Wow

      Got this as a Christmas gift and my god...the quality of sound is incredible!! Now personally I don't really have patience when it comes to my music making ,so Got this as a Christmas gift and my god...the quality of sound is incredible!! Now personally I don't really have patience when it comes to my music making ,so the fact it's essentially plug n play through my Mac and iPad, this is perfect. Throw it in my gig bag with my iPad and when something pops in the brain...BAM....recorded. Cannot say enough good things about this product. If you are a Mac user and guitarist/bassist you need this in your life. The only thing I have noticed (and I haven't looked into this yet) when I have the jam plugged in and forget to close GarageBand when I'm done, I get a signal delay. Easily solved by closing GarageBand and restarting. I also unplug all connections and reconnect them (force of habit from my job). But all in all hands down best product out there.

      Apogee Jam is the best!

      I've tried another rig (analog) and had problems with line noise, signal loss, and less than stellar sound quality. The Apogee Jam is phenomenal! It's easy to u I've tried another rig (analog) and had problems with line noise, signal loss, and less than stellar sound quality. The Apogee Jam is phenomenal! It's easy to use, the cables are all interchangeable and work well, and it is CLEAN. The sound quality makes things sound professional. Now if I could only play that professionally... (LOL)!
