Apogee Electronics has announced the release of JAM 96k, a professional 96kHz, 24-bit USB guitar input that makes it easy to connect your guitar directly to your Windows or Mac computer. With JAM 96k and your laptop, you can make studio-quality guitar recordings anywhere.

JAM 96k is a premium digital converter and instrument preamp featuring Apogee’s PureDIGITAL technology. PureDIGITAL means no noise, just great guitar tone. JAM’s special circuitry is optimized to make the amps and effects in any guitar or music creation app sound their best. You will notice the sonic difference between JAM 96k and other similar products immediately. There are three models of JAM; The original JAM for iPad and Mac, JAM 96k for iPad and Mac and the new JAM 96k for Windows and Mac.

“The original JAM was launched in 2011 and was wildly successful. It put incredible, portable sound quality in the hands of guitar players and empowered them with the simplest way to record on their iPhone or Mac,” commented Sean McArthur, Apogee’s Director of Marketing. “We are excited to offer these high-performance products to Windows customers,” he continued. “In August, 2016, we introduced MiC 96k for Windows and Mac.
