    Apogee Jam into JamUp.

    I might never buy another amp again, and if I do, it's gonna be something small; an RD5 into a 1x12 or something. Apartment living is not conducive to 50/100 watt heads and cabs.

    I think Positive Grid has done a sick job with this; IMO it smokes anything this side of an AxeII or a Kemper, and it's made GAS waaaaaaay cheaper. Want a new delay? $5....lol.

    That is two of us. It lays somewhere at my friend's place. He can make a better use of it, because he has no iOS device.
    Guitar Toolkit is not a modeler.

    Focusrite iTrack Solo, Line 6 Mobile In, Positive Grid JamUp Plug into Jam Up app, Auria DAW (Overloud THM and Convolution Reverb plugins), Garageband (bass plugin).

    The Laney is pretty good for that application.

    Don't do anything but high gain stuff, but a buddy of mine did some good Marshall patches with some delay. Check out user Big D. His mid gain stuff sounds pretty good; he's using this instead of his JVM for gigs.

    How well does JamUp XT Pro run on the iPod Touches? Really thinking about pickup up a used one for the occasion.

    Also, is it really better than the HD modeling? If so, the IK bluetooth MIDI thing looks mighty spiffy...

    EDIT: I just did some reading, and with a proper MIDI interface, you can even use a Behringer FCB MIDI Controller. Son of a bitch. :lol:

    It's a bit scary how good that Jamup app is. I was NOT expecting that...
    I use it with the Line 6 Sonic Port and I really can't find any faults with that setup at that price point.

    Had both; sold the HD500...this thing kills it. And it's way cheaper too...with the Apogee Jam, the upgrade, the metal pack and the sig pack I'm $130 in. Slays, dude. Get it if you can. There's tones for days in there.

    Does the Apogee Jam handle very high gain without hissing and clipping like a b**ch?

    Thinking of grabbing one but had a bad experience with the original irig.

    Other than that, I used to love Ampkit+. Some nice tones out of that thing, and if the apogee can handle the high gain models, I'm ordering one now!

    Anyone using the Jamup for bass? They have a sale going on right now, 50% off bass bundles (at the time of writing)

    Anyone tried the Jamup for bass and have any recordings?

    Jamup is a truly beast of an app, it sounds great, it's damn cheap and it's really plug n' play, I think it's way better than the pod hd 500, which I own.
    I use a cheap iRig interface with it but I've not heard many positive things about it, and tha Apogee Jam seems to be awsome in comparison, but the problem is that it works with iOS devices only, and I'd like an interface that could work with both my iPad and my PC, so I can play with VST's in Reaper. Does anyone know a thing like this exists?

    As for the HD stuff vs JamUp. I'd say it close. The HD I find can sound better through a PA than JamUp but I've also found that it is way easier to tweak JamUp and get something sounding good very quickly. I actually got back into JamUp and AmpKit+ because my HD500 was bothering me, nothing I did made any of my patches sound balanced. They were all too bright of way to dark.

    I think with the right monitors and tweaking time the HD series is better from a sound quality standpoint, but when you factor in price there is no comparison. Especially if you use the JamUp Plug instead of one of the $100 interfaces.

    Agreed. Say Misha have you uploaded that patch you used in one of your videos, with Ola's War amp? I just can't get that amp model to sound great. Very fizzy and dark. Any tips?

    You could get the Line6 Sonic Port. With that you can be using your iPad and then send the signal out through an audio interface into your PC.

    But now that I read your question again, I'm not sure if there is an interface tha can work with iOS devices and PC's using modeling from either iOS devices or PC's.
