Some articles have Vimeo videos embedded in them. In addition to the high quality analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, MIDI input and output 16 channels allows for bridging other MIDI controllers.

Everything has a satisfying air about it. Each channel has a dedicated gain knob and a rear panel insert jack for external processing.

Akai EIE Pro Audio Interface Review

You could connect these devices directly to your computer, but your typical computer will not have great latency or audio quality, which is fine for Skype calls, but not ideal for producing music. They’re back-lit and, better still, their lights change to a ‘warning red’ when signal overload is detected.

Additionally, capture the payback sessions with the convenience of the digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters. Every knob and switch feels as good as it looks and all inputs and akao are more than ever seen at this price point. I sie plug in and go. The design itself is clean and functional—almost industrial—with a brushed aluminium front and glossy black edges.

All I had eeie do to solve it was disable the laptops internal sound card in the control panel “sound” settings as evidently the drivers were conflicting with each other. Found out how to record all 4 inputs of this beast 96 kHz 32 bits with Reaper Install latest software.

Akai EIE Pro review | MusicRadar

It features four microphone preamps with switchable phantom power in pairsand each input can also be set to accept a line input or an instrument input, such as a guitar or bass, or a synthesizer. Our only gripe is that the input ports are all on the front panel.


Track four aai channels simultaneously. All in all, it makes the EIE Pro a real workhorse and the phrase ‘jack of all trades, master of none’ finds an exception here.

All-access artist interviews, in-depth gear reviews, essential production tutorials and much more. Rated 3 out of 5 by mtrepus from Never used – Software Not Available I bought the product solely to get a copy of Pro Tools Express 11, since I have been on Avid’s waiting list for 4 months for Pro Tools First, with no sign of ever getting the download e-mail from them.

All in all, a very good starter or backup system but no match for a UA Tube Pre and Rosetta AD, but then that costs almost ten times as much and at some point, you get what you pay for.

It is made to be a desktop interface but I have it rocking on the road with me as a tough and ready breakout for my computer and a rack case pfo to drums, and the cap on top of my midi and mixing rig.
