Computer Hardware : Apogee unveils GiO : The Guitar Player's Interface For The Mac - macmusicApogee presents GiO, an audio interface and foot controller for the Mac, designed to work seamlessly 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 making it easy for GarageBand users to connect their guitar to their Mac and control recording functions and stompbox effects with their feet.

GiO's instrument input is specially designed for guitar and the 1/4" stereo output offers a true Apogee listening experience. GiO's five transport control buttons let guitar players record, play, stop, and quickly 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, Apple's live performance application. 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.

• Unbalanced 1/4" high impedance instrument input
• 1/4" MIDI Expression pedal input
• Line-level, 1/4" stereo output for headphones, powered monitors or an instrument amplifier
