    Hello,

    I would like to use my Apogee One to input guitar into Logic, and then output the sound to a guitar amplifier. Apogee's website states that the output on the One can be connected to "powered speakers" but mentions nothing about an amplifier. Would I need some sort of pre-amp for this to work, or is the output powerful enough on the One to get sound out of a guitar amplifier?

    Thank you!

    Yes, this should work absolutely fine. The Apogee output is easily powerful enough to drive a guitar amp (you will probably have to turn the volume down a bit).

    What you're doing is called 're-amping' - it's a good trick to get the performance recorded as a clean track, then play with the amp sound later.
    Google for reamping if you want to find out more.

    Yep, I have done re-amping with my ONE and it works fine. You just need the right cable and to set the output to the amp setting in Logic.
