Apogee JAM Guitar Output to bluetooth speakers. How does this work?
what app supports to get the guitar forwarded to bluetooth speakers?
I can forward and hear all tracks from GarageBand on my bluetooth speakers, but as soon as i turn on the "Monitor Switch" to listen to my guitar too, I fail.

Due to the technology of Bluetooth it has a lot of "latency" or delay meaning that sound coming out of Bluetooth is not in real time. This makes playing live music over Bluetooth a drag. You can connect directly to speakers with a headphone connector for best results.

How can you monitor your guitar playing if iPhone 7 has no headphone jack?
I want to buy the JAM 96k and the MiC 96k for use with an iPhone 7, but first I must know: If the iPhone 7 no longer has a headphone jack how are we supposed to monitor our vocals when using the MiC or monitor our guitar when using the JAM. I must be able to monitor the tracks while recording. Is there a solution? There is no such thing as a multi-female port lightning cable. And your MiC and JAM don't have lightning ports on them for daisy-chaining a set of headphones.

I can confirm Belkin's Rockstar adaptor does not enable a line out for effective use of the Apogee Jam.

Will the Apogee JAM Guitar Output work with iPhone 7 if there is no headphone jack? Will Bluetooth headphones work?
or is there a 2 in 1 kind of cable that can be used to connect both headphones and the Apogee Jam?

What makes this interface better than the Line 6 mobile in, iRig, or Guitar Jack?
I bought the new iPad primarily for recording music specifically guitar. What makes this interface better than the Line 6 mobile in, iRig, Guitar Jack Model 2, or the other guitar inputs being sold now? The new iPad will be my first apple device other than the iPhone4s. If anyone has any experience with any of the interfaces I mentioned please explain how they perform on the iPad and the GarageBand app. I am very excited for the Jam session feature on Garageband and want the best IF I can buy.

I can't comment on the Line 6 but I had the iRig and Jam. I returned the iRig.
The Jam has built in analogue to digital converters and they are very good. It changes your analogue guitar signal into digital and then sends it digitally to the phone through the dock connection.
The iRig plugs into the headphone/microphone jack and uses the AD converters in the phone which aren't as good as the Apogee converters. The result was an unacceptable amount of hiss and inferior sound quality.
Hope this helps.

Will this work on my MacBook Pro with an electric cello?
I'm getting a Cecilio electric cello, but I'm wondering if I'll be able to use this to connect it to my MacBook Pro (13'') and record my cello on Garageband?

Yes, you will be able to record that into Garageband. You will need either an adapter for the 1/8 inch jack on the left side of your computer or an after market sound card to plug your cello into. M-Audio is a company that makes affordable, entry level sound cards that you can plug into a USB port and use to record your cello. Alternatively, you could buy a microphone and hook that into the 1/8 inch jack and record that way, though you will probably get better results using the sound card since you are investing in a cello that is meant to be used with one.

Will the apogee jam work with I pad 2 running iOS 5?
I have see reports of problems with the apogee jam and ales is io dock, but don't know if they have been fixed.

This is the answer I got from Apogee regarding this question;
Apogee only supports the use of Apple's 30-pin to Lightning connector. Using this adapter causes no loss in quality or increase in latency. I have heard that some people have been able to make JAM work through the USB camera adapter, but this is not supported by Apogee.
We will be releasing direct Lightning cables for our entire line of iOS products. Hopefully they will start to become available in July.
