It builds up on the original Apogee Jam by upgrading the circuit, resulting in improved sample rate and audio processing.

The original Jam was one of the first purely digital audio interfaces that offer studio quality connection. It has helped the iPad and iPhone attain their reputation of being professional audio workstations for musicians on the go.

Now Apogee is taking the Jam to the next level by updating its circuit. It is still designed for the guitar and bass, only this time it offers higher sample rate of up to 96kHz for improved audio recording quality.

Another nifty addition that this new interface provides is its emulated Class A Input stage, resulting in a more responsive feel and tone, as found on tube guitar amps. Although most guitar apps alraedy come with amp modeling, it maybe a good idea to have the input stage emulated on the interface itself for a more organic sound. the demo video so far shows impressive results:

Aside from the circuitry, the exterior also received an update, now featuring a sturdy nickel plated housing with black soft touch end caps. The multi-color LED feature is retained for providing straightforward status indication and input level monitoring. Also retained is the control knob for easy input level adjustment and the built-in instrument preamp that has up to 40dB of gain.

The new Apogee Jam 96K works with the iPhone, iPad or Mac and it is bus-powered for convenience and portability. It is currently retailing for $129. For more details, visit Apogee Digital.
