Apogee GiO Apogee's GiO, audio interface and foot controller for the Mac, follows closely their ONE unit except GiO is a floor unit designed to work hands-free for guitar players. Like the ONE interface, it's powered by USB and built into a rugged aluminum case and works perfectly with Apple's new Logic Studio and GarageBand '09.

GiO takes advantage of the many new features in Logic Studio including Amp Designer, Pedal board, MainStage 2, Playback and Loopback. GiO is the perfect adjunct for GarageBand users for connecting their guitar to a Mac, control recording functions and triggering stompbox effects all using their feet.

GiO's instrument input is specially designed for guitar signals and the five transport control buttons let players record, play, stop and quickly navigate through a project without taking their hands off their instrument. The same buttons are assignable as user-defined functions within MainStage 2, Apple's live performance application. The five stompbox buttons individually control any of a guitarist's favorite Pedalboard effects in Logic Studio.

GiO features include: unbalanced 1/4-inch high impedance guitar input, MIDI expression pedal jack input, line-level, stereo output for headphones, powered monitors or an instrument amplifier, 24-bit.44.1/48kHz A/D and D/A conversion, five color-coded stompbox buttons, and five lighted transport control buttons. GiO sells for $395 MSRP and for more information check: www.apogeedigital.com/gio.
