Similar to the company's i-BLOX, the i-JAM 3-n-1 serves as an audio interface that connects an instrument to iPhone applications. What's different is that the built-in amplifier affords electronic musicians the ability to render the amplification of their instruments without additional equipment. The MP3 play along feature is also the perfect application for early learners to get their footing.
“Our customers were really excited about the i-JAM 3-n-1's features when we first exhibited it at last year's NAMM Show,” says Lucas McCulley, marketing specialist for The RapcoHorizon Company. “For musicians on the go, the i-JAM 3-n-1 has proven to be must-have piece of gear as it combines three interfacing solutions into a singular, portable device.”
To use the built-in amplifier, musicians can simply plug their instrument into the input and connect their basic speakers or headphones to the output jack, turn the interface on and jam away. The integrated circuitry and design of the box provides low noise operations and ensures a rich, clean, smooth sound. The practice amplifier does not require an amplification application but players are welcome to use one of their choosing.
Musicians can also use the built-in amplifier simultaneously with any MP3 player, for practice or small impromptu performances. By connecting their instrument, small speakers or headphones and an MP3 output device, users can play along with their favorite tracked music – whether it is their original work or a song by their favorite artist.
“For on-the-spot auditions, the i-JAM 3-n-1 is a great tool for local artists,” continues McCulley. “Ideal for players novice to expert, it's an excellent tool to teach or be taught.”
As the most recent addition to The RapcoHorizon Company's iPhone interfaces, the i-JAM 3-n-1 boasts a sleek aluminum design ready for any wear and tear. An added belt clip allows musicians to safely secure the box to their side, providing maximum portability. The interface operates off a 9Volt easily replaceable battery, which allows for extended play time.
