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

Javascript software libraries such as jQuery are loaded at endpoints on the googleapis. Phantom power is available to all of these inputs, allowing you a great deal of versatility in what you can hook up to your audio interface simultaneously. The main inputs are all up front which, depending on your preferences and set up, can be a good or bad thing.

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. Pros Flexible input and monitoring options; Ele ‘hub’ connectivity. This will record 4 separate tracks simultaneously.

Questions must be on-topic, written with proper grammar usage, and understandable to a wide audience. The four balanced, rear panel output jacks can be used to monitor sessions on multiple sets of studio monitors. Most relevant reviews See all 11 reviews.

The rear panel features four audio outputs, designed primarily to drive twin pairs of studio monitors, as well as four rie so input connections made on the front panel can be further enhanced with hardware effects such as compression or EQ.

No aki is shared unless you engage with this feature. This is an ad network.

Everything has a satisfying air about it. Additionally, capture the payback sessions with the convenience of the digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters. I got the pro- as it has the better pres and sample rate I believe.

People who bought this also bought. The unit doesn’t quite provide the ‘classic’ Focusrite sound of the Scarlett 2i2 but this isn’t to criticise it; Akai’s pres are more than capable of great results. First time using any kind of media interface for recording purposes.

All-access artist interviews, in-depth gear reviews, essential production tutorials and much more. I’m sure it is a decent product, but no software is a no go for what I wanted. Unless you are signed in to a HubPages account, all personally identifiable information is anonymized.

We don’t know a studio owner who is happy for mic cables to trail across the front of their workspace, and would prefer EIE Pro to feature some rears too. The rest of the switches and dials on the front are for controlling levels and altering the way the interface behaves, but more on that later. No Longer Available Update Location close.

The unit is well built, and has all the desired functionality. Your audio world opens up with the flexibility of this device. Although I didn’t love the peo, thought it was a bit boomy. Moving back to the front of the interface we have perhaps the most striking feature; a pair of VU meters.

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.
