How can the Apogee ONE be connected exactly to a mixing console for live sound? Would Duet be a better choice for this?

I was wondering how to connect ONE exactly to a mixing console. I am a keyboard player and am thinking of playing live using my MIDI keyboard and connect it through USB to my MacBook Pro and use also the Apogee ONE in my MacBook Pro. From there, there is only one 1/8" output on the ONE. How can I connect that to a mixing console? Do I need to use a DI box and use 1 channel? Or is it possible for ONE to be directly connected to the console? Furthermore, will ONE give a mono or stereo sound? Thank you very much

    the output on the one is stereo and you can run directly into a board.
    I would use a 1/8" to SPLIT L/R RCA cable that way i can run the left and right RCA cable into the board. or attach RCA to 1/4" adapters and run it into two separate tracks on the board.

    If you can afford Duet, I would go for that.
    It has a Stereo Output and a Headphone out.
    You could run one output into an amp onstage and the other out to the board.
