Rated 4 out of 5 by voicecoop from Nice box What more could you want? 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 eeie from them.

These can be used to extend the number of connections your computer offers, so they can host external hard drives or even USB keys used to enable your plug-in libraries.

See all 2 brand new listings. Pretty much what goes in is what comes out. But for a band simply wanting to make ‘four instruments appear separately in their DAW’, this is going to be magical. Use your headphones for playback sessions by connecting to the TRS headphone output. They’re back-lit and, better still, their lights change to a ‘warning red’ when signal overload is detected.

There’s a clarity and a natural brightness which doesn’t aoai the sound but adds a slight sweetness to microphone sources in particular. Non-consent will result in ComScore only processing obfuscated personal data. To the right, twin VU meters keep you updated with levels with options to monitor either pair of inputs or returns, while a master level dial serves as the main monitor in either mono or stereo.

Track four individual channels simultaneously. Found out how to record all 4 inputs of this beast 96 kHz 32 bits with Reaper Install latest software. The sound quality is excellent. But did they succeed? 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.

I literally have never used a USB interface before but this screams fun, class, pro, and options. USB audio interface with up to bit recording resolution aka all standard sample rates Akai needs to get there act in gear!!

Bit Depth bit Sample Rates I’m very pleased with the look, feel, and functionality of this unit. The lowest-priced brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging where packaging is applicable.

The rest of the switches and dials on the front are for controlling levels and altering the way eoe interface behaves, but more on that later. This unit offered four-channel recording but capped audio at bit resolution. Generally speaking, I get the impression that great deal of thought has gone into the look and feel of the Akai EIE Pro, from proo flicky switches to the VU meters that light up red when you clip.

Some people prefer to keep that stuff out of sight and a nice clean work space up front.

Fine prl most applications but limited by the standards of some competitors, and it’s perhaps no surprise that Akai now returns with a more commanding version of their intriguing EIE concept, the ‘Pro’. He earns his sandwiches fixing automatic transmissions.

I’m sure it is a decent product, but no software is a no go for what I wanted.

I love the compact full featured size and look, the pri easy to understand layout, VU meters that instantly light red to signify clipping and it sleek style. Phantom power can be switched on in pairs, with a switch each serving inputs 1 and 2 and inputs 3 and 4. We were initially concerned that the VU meters might not provide the most accurate visual feedback when setting levels, but this proved not to be the case.

Each channel has a dedicated gain knob and a rear panel insert jack for external processing.

Most relevant reviews See all 11 reviews. In general, though, EIE Pro seems to be considered a solid, capable audio interface that is well worth the price.


Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. If you can get a deal on this get it! Rated 5 out of 5 by Denim from Solid workhorse for any audio enthusiast I have this bench proven dreamboat running a love rig through my MacBook Pro. Encoding was also indistinguishable from the Rosetta when I used the same mic and preamp.

Great Gear A Steal on Ebay!! Similarly, the headphone switch can chose one and two, three and four, or all.

We suspect this flexibility will be the secret to its success, particularly with the to our knowledge unique selling point of offering ‘studio expansion’ via the additional USB ports and the dedicated insert points. Things get a little muddy when you start getting into the operational aspects of the unit itself. If you look on Amazon or certain other marketplaces that allow consumer reviews, you might find more than a handful of negative reviews from people who bought the Akai EIE Pro and had trouble getting it to work properly.

Going to the download link to get the software gets you a message stating that Pro Tools 11 is no longer available and the site redirects you to get a copy of Pro Tools First from Avid, which you can’t just download. USB audio interface with up to bit recording resolution supporting all standard sample rates No data is shared with Paypal unless you engage with this feature.
