Apogee Gio Stomp Box Brings Garage Band, Logic Studio and MainStage Controls to Your Feet
Apogee’s GiO is a pretty cool looking instrument controller is aimed at you Mac users that are looking to get a little bit more out of GarageBand 09 – it will also play nice with Logic Studio 9 and MainStage 2.
The Gio is designed to give you full hands-free recording – the stomp box is kitted out with five buttons that are dynamically colour coded to match software effects, plus five Transport control buttons that are dynamically lit when engaged.
The device is also sporting all the ports you’d expect, including a 1/4″ instrument input, a 1/4″ MIDI Expression pedal input, a headphone jack, and that all-important USB port, which is also how the box is powered.
This handy home rig is due out in September and will cost $395 – check out their site for more details.
