Apogee Electronics and UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd are pleased to announce the new Apogee Jam+ USB Instrument Input and Headphone Output for iOS, Mac and PC.
In 2010 Jam was introduced in Apple stores worldwide as the first high quality digital interface to connect guitars and instruments with Mac and IOS devices. Jam set a new standard in mobile recording by combining Apogee’s renowned conversion specs and components into a simple and portable design.
Jam+ continues the evolution in the series bringing the best advances in Apogee’s design and engineering into an all new metal chassis with enhanced PureDIGITAL circuitry for the greatest ‘true tone’ audio resolution. Jam+ now includes a powerful headphone output with zero latency monitoring and overdrive mode to make practise and recording sessions better than ever.
Professional Instrument Tone on your iPhone, Mac and PC
Apogee Jam+ is a professional, USB instrument input and headphone output. Jam+ connects your electric guitar, bass, keyboard or any acoustic instrument with a pickup directly to your iOS device or computer. With an adapter (sold separately) you can also connect a dynamic microphone. The simplicity and portability of Jam+ make it ideal for capturing your best take anywhere you go. The ease of use and sound quality make Jam+ a must-have for beginners and pros.
Connect to any Instrument
Connect any instrument-level input you can imagine to your iOS device or computer using Jam+. Synth or keyboard, electric guitar or bass, dynamic microphone* or acoustic instrument with a pickup - it all works with Jam+.
*Requires microphone adapter, sold separately.
Keep it Pristine & Clean
The PureDIGITAL signal path to smooth, noiseless tone, Clean Mode is the ideal setting for pristine, unaffected instrument recording.
Put it in OverDrive
Drive Mode gives you that responsive amp and pedal feel from subtle to snarling distortion and makes virtual amps and FX sound more like the real thing.
Play Without Delay
The Blend feature lets you play and record with zero latency. Jam+ features an ⅛” stereo headphone output and Blend function for zero latency monitoring. The Blend setting allows you to easily adjust how much direct instrument input you hear mixed with software playback, enabling you to dial in the perfect mix.
It’s an Instrument Input, AD/DA Converter and Headphone Output, All in One
Jam+ is actually an instrument input, A/D and D/A converter and headphone output all rolled into one seamless device. Apogee has designed each part of Jam+ to deliver the highest quality signal possible with the lowest noise - we call this PureDIGITAL.
Listen with More Level
The headphone amp in Jam+ gives you plenty of level and high quality sound to power your headphones or even powered speakers. Whether you’re monitoring as you play and record or simply streaming music from your favourite app, Jam+ improves audio playback quality with sample rates up to 96k.
