Leo Amuedo Working With Jam X

Is it USB-C? arrow down

Jam X comes with a Micro-USB to USB C cable.

I hear a delay between what I play and what I hear in my headphones or monitor speakers. Can I do anything about this? arrow down

This delay is called latency, and is caused by your computer and/or recording software. Here are a few ways to minimize the latency through your system:


1. Set your Amp sim or DAW software to a sample rate of 96kHz – this divides latency in half.

2. Lower the buffer setting on your software as low as possible while avoiding audio dropouts or glitches. If you have a powerful computer and your sessions use a moderate amount of plugin processing, you may be able to find a buffer setting that works.

3. If latency is still too high, turn Blend on to engage Direct monitoring. Blend On – Direct Monitoring When Blend is on, you hear your instrument BEFORE it’s been routed through your Amp Sim app or DAW.

Is the 1/4″ instrument input on balanced or unbalanced? arrow down

The 1/4″ input is an unbalanced TS instrument input.
