In order to use the Apogee GiO on your Mac you need to have a PowerPC G5 processor with at least 1GB of RAM. Your operating system needs to be version 10.5.7 or higher. I have used Apogee GiO in GarageBand and Logic. It has worked great in both of those programs and never gave me any issues.
You will have full control over your guitar tone and you won’t even have to use your hands at all! Being able to find your sound, or get the sound you are looking for without even having to touch my Macbook was a huge deal for us. I immediately felt like I got my money’s worth the day that I got the Apogee GiO and used it for about 30 minutes.
It does come with a manual that is easy to understand. Also it comes with a long USB cable, the cable is probably around 10 feet long. It is great to have a long USB cable come with it because you never know how your set up will be when you go places and you might need to have your computer a good distance away from the Apogee GiO. If you had to go out and buy your own 10 foot cable that would be another large expense. Thanks to Apogee you don’t have to do that.
