Apogee has announced Jam+, an upgraded version of its USB input for users wants to connect dynamic microphones and musical instruments to a Mac or iOS device for recording.
Apogee said the peripheral features of the Jam + included enhanced circuitry for better analog to digital conversion, a digital encoder knob and stereo output for direct headphone or speaker connections. A "blend" button turns on low-latency monitoring, and an "overdrive" mode is intended to make virtual amps and pedals feel more realistic.
The Jam+ supports 24-bit, 96-kilohertz recording, and comes bundled with Lightning, USB-A and USB-C cables. It also comes with Positive Grid's BIAS JAM FX software for Mac and Windows, which includes three amps, six effects and an assortment of "essential" pedals. The original Jam dates back to 2010, and is still on sale.
The Jam+ is available now at a cost of $159.
