    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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).

    Second to none

    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
