If I wanted to use the GiO to gig with, could I still use my overdrive and boost pedals? Where would they go in the signal chain?

That's a Loaded Question on Effecting with a USB Audio Interface. Boost/Overdrive/Fuzz/Distortion Pedals boost the signal output a lot to cause harmonic distortion/clipping in tube amps. It's pointless to overdrive the Guitar's signal going into the GiO where You want clear and clean resolution on Input like if You have Logic Pro 9 Mainstage for Live use like say Nine Inch Nails and Reznor as example... so You have Stereo Outs on the GiO for Amps/Monitors... You're better on an Audio Interface to put them Post-FX on the Output to Amp for best Overdrive FX to amp/sound system Live. Otherwise using those pedals going into the GiO You have to turn down output on them so You don't fry the circuits in the GiO.

The GiO has a connection for an expression pedal. Apogee officially supports the Yamaha FC-7 and the Roland EV-5.
