Santa Monica, CA (April 6, 2011)–Apogee Electronics has launched JAM, a plug-and-play guitar input for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Mac.
JAM enables musicians to practice and record using the guitar amps and effects in Apple’s GarageBand software on iPad 2 or Mac. Further, it works with any Core Audio-compatible application.
Features include 44.1 kHz/24-bit operation; instrument preamp with 40 dB of gain; locking output dock connector/USB port; level-adjustment knob; multicolor LED for status indication and input level monitoring; and Apogee’s Audio Soft Limit circuitry.
“We’re very excited to enter the rapidly growing world of iOS with this incredible product,” says Apogee co-founder and CEO Betty Bennett. “JAM is the first high-quality interface that makes a digital connection to your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and the only one that also works on your Mac. You will immediately notice the difference between the sound quality of JAM and other similar products. Its converters are designed by the same team of engineers who are responsible for our award-winning, high-end, professional interfaces. JAM promises to become a standard for guitarists who want a professional, portable way to connect to these devices and benefit from the amazing music-making apps they offer.”
