Akai EIE Pro Audio Interface Review

A playback of several dozen pieces coded with a Rosetta all sounded fine. You could connect these devices directly to your computer, but your typical computer will not have great latency oro audio quality, which is fine for Skype calls, but not ideal for producing music.

Ratings and Reviews Write a review. It’s my new favorite purchase. Fine for 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’.

It connects to your computer usually via USBand you can then plug certain devices into it microphones, guitars, MIDI devices, etc in order to record them. Generally speaking, I get the impression that great deal of thought has gone into the look and feel of the Akai EIE Pro, from the flicky switches to the VU meters that light up red when you clip.

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.

This USB hub allows you to connect to peripherals with additional USB inputs if you have limited ports on your computer. No data is shared with Facebook unless aiai engage with this feature. I’m sure it is a decent product, but no software is a no go for what I wanted.


Pros Flexible input and monitoring options; USB ‘hub’ connectivity. Never plugged the product in, nor turned it on. It’s an impressive feature-set that allows for huge levels of flexibility. We know it amai handle four simultaneous audio tracks, but would it start to degrade if you began copying lots of data to a USB memory stick at the same time?

This thing is amazing so far, love all the inputs and outputs, it has it’s own power supply which is great the extra usb ports come in handy for sure! First time using any kind of media interface for recording purposes. Phantom power can be switched on pto pairs, with a switch each serving inputs 1 and 2 and inputs 3 and 4.

Javascript software libraries such as jQuery are loaded at endpoints on the googleapis. The mic pres are incredible and the VU meters are very accurate and really helps you get a much more consistent meter reading vs.

This is used to eke charts and graphs on articles and the author center.

This is a great if you need or want to put multiple mics on an instrument or guitar cab and then tweak the output from each later. 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.

AKAI Professional – EIE Pro

The interface is a chunky, solidly built unit. Google provides ad serving technology and runs an ad network.

I have no complaints and highly recommend the EIE Pro. Akai, a name with a long history in audio equipment, threw their hat in the audio interface ring with the Akai EIE and EIE Pro, an audio interface aimed at the home recording market with the goal of delivering professional quality equipment at home studio pricing.

There is nothing on the market selling at twice to thrice that price I would trade it for. pgo

But did they succeed? No eiw is shared unless you engage with this feature. For example, the four mono inputs can also operate as two stereo inputs, and there is a switch to choose between these modes.

It was no problem to set up; working properly without a hitch from the start. One of the most crucial components for any recording artist—be it at home or in a professionally built studio—is the audio interface. And, of course, there are the unfortunate souls who just received a faulty unit. One area where there is a separation of each input is around the back.
