Rock your Mac with incredible guitar tone
Apogee GiO is a studio quality guitar interface that turns your Mac into the ultimate guitar rig for recording, rehearsing, or performing live on stage. GiO unlocks total control of the virtual guitar amps and effects in GarageBand, Logic, and MainStage through a single foot controller and professional audio interface. Easily turn effects on and off, select presets and control recording functions without ever letting your hands leave your guitar. With Apogee’s industry-leading conversion and preamps, you won’t need to lug around an amp or other heavy gear to sound amazing.

Who is GiO for?
GiO is great for any guitar player with a Mac looking for a wide variety of virtual amps, effects and guitar tones for recording, rehearsing, or live performance. It’s easy to connect GiO and start rocking.

SOFTWARE CONTROL WITH GiO
Stomp on it. Effects control without the mouse.

Imagine finding your sound without going back and forth from your guitar to your Mac. With GiO, you can audition effects presets in GarageBand, Logic and MainStage, and turn effects on and off while playing or recording… all without touching your keyboard.

Hands free recording.
GiO frees you from key-command recording allowing you to concentrate on your performance and not the space bar. The five transport buttons on GiO let you record, play, stop and quickly navigate thru your track without taking your hands off the neck of your guitar.

“Next” preset please.
Previous and Next preset select buttons let you quickly audition and toggle between guitar amps and effects presets in Logic and GarageBand and the patch lists in MainStage
