    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...

    Easiest way to record

    • Written by from Big Rapids

    I just received my JAM today, plugged it into my MAC and played. Simple to use and it sounds great. Functions like a direct box for your computer. Outstanding product.

    I just plugged the JAM in and couldn't believe how easy it was! Wow! It works perfectly with my iPad, iPhone and my Macbook Pro as well. I was getting sick of trying to play on little keys or strings! Keep up the great work!

    Best in class

    • Written by from Mississauga

    Thrilled with this device and it delivers tremendous performance. Apogee is my go to brand and they do not disappoint with the JAM. Works great on the original iPad and even on my iPhone 4S. Never imagined recording my musical ideas on such devices, but thanks to Apple and Apogee, this is now a reality. I am also really impressed with the sound quality on the Mac. True to the tone of my guitars. Wish I had all of this when I started playing 25 years ago!

    Working flawlessly! Thanks Apogee!

    • Written by from Boston

    I wanted to purchase Jam last week to use with my iPad2/iPhone 4, but I had been a bit concerned based on LP's comment. I did some searching and found an Apple support article acknowledging an issue with iPad 2/iOS 5, and providing a workaround... This week I saw Apogee released a new firmware to fix the issue, so I picked up Jam, loaded the firmware, and it's been working great - no issues! Very easy to use. Might even pick up another one for my brother as a christmas gift!

    Simple, clean and sharp!

    • Written by from Miami

    This has to be by far THE BEST sounding converter for iOS devices! I am extremely happy with my purchase. This device is easy to use, I simply plug it in, open up GarageBand on my iPhone or iPad and BAM a full mobile recording studio right in my hand!
    I've even tried using a simple dynamic mic, and it sounds great! Perfect way to jot down all these ideas in my head before hitting up the recording studio. The sound this device offers simply beats all other similar products out there. I use Apogee in my home studio, and love the sound of their equipment! I'm glad they made it to the mobile world.

    *** Another HIT from Apogee! ***

    • Written by from Agoura Hills

    You have GOT to get JAM. No problems no issues. I registered my Jam when I bought it and Apogee sent me an email about a product update for jam. It added 48k sampling capability and addressed a connection issue with iOS 5 and iPad. Sorry LP from Utica, I don't know how you contacted Apogee or if you did but their customer support is the best. Just contact them and they'll get you straightened out.

    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.

    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 !!!

    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.

    IF YOU PLAY GUITAR...!!!!

    I'm learning guitar and I LOVE this product. I never knew GarageBand was so useful! I mostly use the amplifiers, but I can easily see someone with more skill making this thing dance. Must have product.

    Wow

    • Written by from Airdrie

    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!

    • Written by from Dallas

    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)!

    Just perfect!!

    • Written by from ─░stanbui

    This product is just unreal!! All of your need to gig just in your pocket. Sound is very hot&real just like a tube amp. Noise is minimum, nothing to worry. I'm using this with jamup xt with metal signature pack, it blows me away. If you need something like this, don't think too much.. Just buy it, you don't regret.

    Salute.

    Good, but not great.

    • Written by from Santa Monica

    It does what it says, but does pick up a bit of a buzz if your laptop is floating (not plugged in to the wall).
