Apogee JAM 96K Guitar Audio Interface for iPad / Mac / iOS

Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommendation

The JAM 96K appeared on our recommended list for iPad Audio Interfaces from May 2017 until October 2019.


The Apogee Jam 96k is a compact audio interface designed specifically for guitarists and bassists - and their iOS devices.

It converts your guitar signal to 24-bit/96kHz digital audio that can be sent to your iPad and other iOS devices. And since its preamp circuit is especially tuned for instruments, it provides the right amount of headroom and dynamic range that other multi-purposes interfaces may lack.

Other features include built-in limiter for preventing signal clipping, discrete gain knob and LED monitoring.

Aside from the mentioned features, the Apogee Jam 96K offers nothing extra, making it streamlined, compact and affordable. And since its from Apogee, sound quality and compatibility with Apple devices are already a given.

If you're looking for a high-quality and portable way of interfacing guitar/bass straight to your iPad, then the Apogee Jam 96K is a good option.
