Apogee Electronics have just announced that they will be releasing updated versions of their JAM and MiC products, with both now capable of recording with a quality of up to 24-bit/96kHz (as opposed to the 48kHz of the original units).
The Apogee JAM 96k allows you to connect your guitar to an iOS device or Mac computer, and record it to your favourite App/software with amazing detail and clarity. The JAM 96k even has an updated circuitry design, which has been created in order to bring out the 'true' tone of your instrument. It also comes with a lightning iOS cable, 30-pin iOS cable, USB Mac cable and quick start guide.
The Apogee MiC 96k is a microphone that you can hook up to your iOS device or Mac in order to record vocals or instruments to your favourite App or DAW. It comes with the same cables as the JAM 96k, but also includes a table top stand and microphone stand adapter.

OFFER HAS NOW ENDED
Apogee have announced that all of their 'iPad and Mac'-compatible units will soon be shipping with a lightning cable included in the box! However, for those that purchase an Apogee product before this promotion comes into play (i.e. before the new stock arrives in the UK), you can claim a free or reduced price (depending on the product that you own) lightning cable directly from Apogee.

iOS guitar apps and products have exploded onto the scene within the last couple of years. From apps that simply act as metronomes and tuners, to apps that help you to learn your instrument, to apps that model whole amp and effects rigs and a lot more in-between, the product market has had to move fast to keep up with these recent software advances...
