    Very good bit of kit sounds great

    • Written by from CHESTERFIELD

    Before this I had a griffin guitar connect cable it only cost £25 but I wish I'd bought this in the first place. Because this plugs into the 30 pin connector the sound is so much better than just a cable on it's own. It's not a serious bit of kit by any means if you think you can get studio quality recording then you will be disappointed but considering I now have a whole bunch of amps and pedals and effects on my ipad it's amazing.

    Pricey but worth it.

    • Written by from Montreal

    I have an Apogee Jam and IRig.

    If you are just putzin around and $$$ is an issue then take the 13$ IRig clone from Deal Extreme.

    If sound quality (specifically noise) is an issue for you the Apogee Jam works very well.
    There is a VERY small amount of latency (IRig as well). It doesnt appear as a latency, more of a clickiness to the sound that doesnt appear in anything you record.

    Jam doesnt work with Amplitube so the best free solution is JamUp Lite. Garageband works very well with the Jam.

    4 Stars because it isnt indestructible.

    Pros: Good signal to noise ratio. Built in level control.
    Cons: Doesnt work with Amplitube.

    To steal a quote from harmony-central: If it were lost or stolen I would not hesitate to buy it again.

    Ipad 2 Excellent. Mac varies...

    • Written by from Bristol

    I have toyed with buying this product for months (since launch) but have always been put off by the lack of reviews and stories of faulty units. However, I have recently had to move away and was unable to bring my amp so took the plunge with the Jam.

    On the Ipad 2 I think that it is faultless. Great tone, easy to set up and absolute minimal latency/delay to the point that it is unnoticeable. Works with Garageband and Ampkit seamlessly. Only improvement would be if Garageband had a few more pedals (ie. Octave pedal).

    On Macbook it's still pretty good. Links up easily although the delay varies. Once minute it is perfect and other times very noticeable. This I found is corrected though by pressing play and then stopping. Have no got it to work with GuitarRig but Garageband is excellent. Again no Octave pedal but a good array of amps and other pedals.

    If buying for Ipad 2 only, it is excellent. However if you want to use it with a Mac, performance can vary although at £80, it is still the best option out there.
