Designed specifically for guitar and bass

There are many great audio interfaces out there but few offer the kind of quality for guitar and bass that the Apogee Jam 96k does. That's because Apogee designed the Jam 96k with nothing but the high-impedance circuitry of guitar and bass in mind. Not only does that mean you'll get clearer sound in general when you plug your instrument into a Jam 96k than some generic interface, it also means you'll get the full headroom you need, providing you with all of the dynamic range you could ask for.

Metering and soft-limiting protect your sound

The Apogee Jam 96k comes with two vital features that let you get the most out of your signal: essential metering and a built-in soft limiter. The metering is really simple - a single multicolor LED lets you know if your levels are fine or too hot. In case you do run a bit over the line, the Jam 96k's soft-limiter keeps your level from clipping, sparing your sound from harsh digital distortion.

Simple to set up and super-easy to use

There really is nothing to setting up the Apogee Jam 96k, thanks to its Class Compliant architecture. Just connect it to your iOS device with the lightning or USB cables, fire up your favorite app, and you're good to go. The same is true in iOS, where its Core Audio compatible USB connection provides true plug-and-play convenience.

Apogee Jam 96k Features:
  • 24-bit/96kHz digital conversion provides studio-quality sound
  • Designed to provide high-quality sound for electric guitar and bass
  • With no confusing setup, you can start recording in minutes
  • Works with any Core Audio compatible OS X or iOS application
  • Studio quality instrument preamp with external control knob delivers up to 40dB of gain
  • Multicolor LED for status indication and input level monitoring lets you keep an eye on your levels
  • Auto Soft Limit provides optimal input level without clipping
  • Powered by connection to iPad, iPhone or Mac - no batteries or external power needed
  • Includes Lightning and USB cables
  • Designed and manufactured in the USA

Simple and effective

The Apogee Jam 96K was easy to set up (virtually plug & play) and very effective as a simple digital interface for guitar. It's very small and light; to make it easier to keep in place I put a strip of velcro on the back and a matching strip on my desk near the computer.

Excellent Product

Truly excellent product. Well made, quiet, good headroom and smooth transparent sound with very low latency which is really important. Pairs up really well with my iPad 4th Generation running latest IOS and Jam Up. Truly a joy to practice and record with. My sales guy Jason Koons recommended this as the best of the portable guitar interfaces for IOS. Jason was spot on.

I love the Apogee 96k

Simply, it is an inexpensive, high quality, portable tool that turns my macbook pro into a home studio. The jam 96k is quiet too. This is my first Apogee product and I am impressed. It is recognized instantly by Garageband which makes it super easy. I think it may sound better with the 10.0.2 version Garageband than my POD HD I bought at the same time. I figure if it's good enough for Pete Frampton to lay down ideas in his hotel rooms, then it's OK for my guitar memoirs too!

Great Sound, No Noise

This is an awesome little guitar interface that I mainly use to practice with my iPhone/iPad running JamUp Pro. (It works equally well on Mac or PC) Its small, light, and high quality. In a nutshell, I think its one of those rare things that you will actually use and enjoy using. The sound is incredibly clear with pretty close to zero signal noise. You really have to crank up the gain to hear any kind of hum and like that I almost never need to use a noise filter. As far as professional usability is concerned, I say go for it. Software amps are getting scarily good and you could definitely record with this and be quite happy. I also love that its USB powered and I don't need to plug anything into the wall or worry about batteries. Overall, I highly recommend it. By the way, I've used the older version - this is a clear step above and well worth the extra bucks.
