Apogee is introducing a high quality guitar interface for Apple devices, providing another option for guitar players who want a quick and easy way to record at home or on the move. Jam ($99) features a 1/4″ input and gain control, and it connects via USB to your iPad, iPod or Mac. Simply plug in your guitar or bass and hit record to get started – a status LED on Jam turns green when it’s connected properly, and red if your levels are too hot.

Jam is designed to be plug-and-play, and works with Garageband, Logic, MainStage, and any other application that runs on Core Audio. It’s powered through USB, and provides 40dB of gain and 44.1kHz/24bit audio conversion. Apogee touts Jam as a high quality alternative to similar products like the iRig or AmpKit Link, and it’s the only one available that doubles as an interface for Mac computers in addition to portable devices. Jam is available March 31st, check out for more info. -Mike Bauer
