JAM - A New Guitar A/D Input Device for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch

Apogee Electronics have released JAM - a new A/D guitar interface for iOS devices.

Apogee are billing this as "Studio Quality", so we should point out that it's a 44.1 kHz / 24-bit audio to digital converter - some people consider studio quality to mean the higher sampling rate of 96 kHz.

Putting that to one side, this does look like reasonable value for $99 based upon the specs, and of course it's perfectly timed with the launch of iPad 2 which includes Garage Band.

It's a multipurpose A/D converter, in that it also works with your Mac computer.


The main features are:

  • Designed for electric guitar and bass
  • Plug and play
  • Works with GarageBand on iOS devices or with any Core Audio compatible application on a Mac
  • Control knob allows easy input level adjustment
  • Multicolor LED for status indication and input level monitoring
  • Studio quality instrument preamp with up to 40dB of gain
  • High quality locking output connects directly to iPad, iPhone and iPod touch dock connector port or USB port on a Mac
  • 44.1kHz, 24-bit analog-to-digital conversion
  • Auto Soft Limit for optimal input level
