True amp sound. More gain. Higher resolution.
Go ahead, crank it up. JAM 96k brings classic boutique amp sound and feel straight to your guitar, so you can dial-in lush tones without sounding like you’re using amp simulation software. We took guitar input technology to a new level with JAM 96k by using a discrete, Class-A JFET input stage to emulate the warmth and character of a tube amp circuit. With 24-bit, 96kHz recording ability, JAM 96k lets you capture all of your best licks in high definition – from pristine cleans to soaring, overdriven sustain – at the highest pro-level standards.
These sound samples compare JAM 96k to another HD guitar interface. Note the additional gain (volume) available with JAM 96k and the rich, overdriven amp tone.

JAM and The Padcaster
Use JAM to record high-quality audio
for video on iPad
The iPad is an incredible tool for mobile video creation, especially when paired with accessories such as the The Padcaster. The Padcaster fits around the iPad and allows you to attach lenses, lights or audio peripherals to its surface, making it easy for anyone to capture broadcast quality videos in remote locations entirely on iPad.
The most spectacular of videos can be easily ruined by inferior sound quality. Apogee JAM can easily be attached to the side of Padcaster, providing the ability to capture professional quality audio for HD video. Simply connect JAM to the iPad and any analog microphone such as a shotgun or lavaliere to JAM’s 1/4″ input.

Apogee JAM Customer Reviews
Love the tone
“I’ve tried other devices for my guitars but nothing compares to this little beauty..”
I can dig it
“Yes! Finally a guitar interface for iDevices that actually works as any disriminating musician would expect. I tried the IKM iRig months ago and returned it the next day because it was pretty awful as most of the reviews indicated. I wasn’t holding out a whole lot of hope for the Apogee Jam, but I must say I am pleasantly surprised.”
Christopher from Guitar Center
“Worked without a flaw on a iphone 4s. Used with Garageband and Daw Multitrack. It’s great that it sets itself up and that you can control the input level. Very clean and no latency issues whatsoever. You will be happy with this product. Price seems reasonable too.”
