The GiO audio interface and foot controller for the Mac is designed to work with Apple''s new Logic Studio and GarageBand ''09. Powered by USB and built into a rugged aluminum case, GiO gives guitar players hands-free control over recording and many new features in Logic Studio, including Amp Designer, Pedalboard, MainStage 2, Playback and Loopback. GiO is also plug-and-play with GarageBand ''09.
GiO''s instrument input is designed for guitar, and the 1/4-inch stereo output offers a true Apogee listening experience. GiO''s five transport control buttons let guitar players record, play, stop and navigate through a project without taking their hands off their guitar. The same buttons can be assigned to functions selected by the user with MainStage 2. Guitar players can use the five stompbox buttons to individually control their favorite Pedalboard effects in Logic Studio while GiO''s color indicators automatically adjust to match the colors displayed onscreen.
The GiO will be available in September 2009, with a $395 price tage. Find out more information about the Apogee GiO.
