Apogee's guitar interface joins the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus 12/02/10
Here's the press release that we received from Apogee...
Apogee has embarked on another year's journey with the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, this time with more gear on board as it roams state to state across America, inspiring one future recording musician after another. Already equipped with Apogee Big Bens, Symphony Systems, AD-16Xs, DA-16Xs, and Ensembles, GiO is the perfect addition to the mobile studio, especially with Gibson's recent participation. Lead Guitarist Dustin Belanger of AfterMATH (pictured) took some time to play with GiO on the bus after his band won the first annual SchoolJam USA competition, presented by NAMM.
GiO, Apogee's new guitar interface and foot controller, is made for the Mac and allows guitarists to select amp and effects presets, turn effects on and off and record all without taking their hands off their guitar. Hands-free rocking and recording has arrived for Apple's GarageBand, Logic and MainStage, and it's heading your direction. About the John Lennon Education Tour Bus
