rockerdad's review"Perfect solution for guitarists"

Apogee Jam
The Apogee Jam is designed to allow you to record your guitar or bass into an iPad, iPhone or other Mac OS. It's about the size of a very small cell phone (even smaller) and does one thing and does it very well.

I'm using it with an iPad and iPhone to record electric guitar.

Zero latency! Those 2 words are the wishes of most recording professionals when using computers or idevices to record, and the Jam provides that or very close to that! Another HUGE plus is the inclusion of a gain control knob on the side of the Jam. Signal too hot? Easy, adjust the gain. The Jam will tell you how your signal is by the light...green is good, orange is getting hotter and red is too hot.

Using the Jam is as simple as:

1) Plug the included cable into the Jam
2) Plug the other end of the included cable into the dock of the iPad/iPhone (or included USB cable into your Mac)
3) Watch the blue light come on
4) Once the light turns green, you are good to go.

No drivers or software necessary to download or install...it's that easy!

After trying the iRig and Peavey Ampkit Link to record with my iPad and receiving less than stellar results, the Apogee Jam was a breath of fresh air. The sound is excellent, ease of use is perfect and overall, the unit delivers what it is supposed to: allowing you to get YOUR guitar tone into a recording using your iPad, iphone or Mac OS.No feedback, just pure guitar tone. The sound you achieve is clear and the results will make you want to record more.

Depresso's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Pleasantly surprised"

Apogee Jam
I was looking for a small, efficient, accessible interface, and a fair price. Suffice to say that I do not believe it too, to test the Apogee gear. I used to record my iPhone and iMac, tested on iPad also, it goes nickel.

I have used with GarageBand where the interface is automatically recognized. It plugs, the light turns green and bam! We do not waste time before play is very effective. Very correct latency necessarily worse than their higher-end interfaces, but for the amateur recording is just perfect.

Installing a simple copy. The manual is somewhat basic, but at the same time there is nothing to say it works alone :)

I use it for about a year, I encountered no problems whatsoever. I like its small size, its efficiency and quality / price ratio. One of my best purchases!

charlycbu's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent"

Apogee Jam
Excellent sound reproduction, no latency on my Mac mini with GarageBand, MainStage and Logic Pro 9
A summary of the config of my equipment (basic)

Model Name: Mac mini
Model Identifier: Macmini6, 1
Name: Intel Core i5
Processor Speed: 2.5 GHz
Memory: 4 GB

No latency, I use GarageBand, MainStage and Logic Pro 9.
The drivers seem very stable.
There is no latency.
It is true that I only use one instrument at a time (piano and guitar).

This tiny box is recognized by Mountain Lion seamlessly and instantaneously (plug and play).
Its use is very simple.

I did not try other external sound cards.
What I appreciate most is the sound quality of this little box.
The price is ultimately can relatively expensive for the quality of this product, because it is the appointment and the case is not made by slaves but Chinese manufacturers in the USA.

I remake that choice without hesitation.

michelrocca's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Great product compared to line 6 mobile in"

Apogee Jam
Sound quality
Connector locks on ipad

Adjusting the gain

Ease of implementation

Recently purchased to replace my line 6 mobile in 2011 (cheaper of course).

Tested on ipad / garagband with a PRS single cut and identical settings (clean and crunch)

The two are good products but the Apogee Jam is really best.
More gain and a much more "rich".
I'm just an amateur, but I think the converter should be better.

Well, I just wanted to share this info as I struggled to compare the two.
That said, I did not try the other existing interfaces.
