Not really the most dependable interface (drivers)

Noamek, 16.06.2017
DON'T GET THIS INTERFACE IF YOU'RE USING WINDOWS 10

I re-installed windows 10 due to getting a new graphics card, and did a clean install of all drivers.
The newest version of windows 10 and the newest drivers for this interface make windows crash as soon as any audio starts playing back!
Bluescreen& this error:
"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
What failed: akaieiea.sys"

////
The interface looks amazing, it's a solid piece that seems to be really robust.
I love the look, the analog VU meters look just amazing.
Sadly, only the input one is usable - the output one will only move 1mm when the sound is at maximum.

I use it with 2 Yamaha HS7, with windows 7 everything worked ok most of the time. I got random crackles, and sometimes the samplerates randomly switched making the audio all distorted.
Uninstalling all audio drivers (realtek, etc) and disabling other audio devices (display with speakers, etc) seemed to fix most of the sample rate problems but i would still get some crackles now and then. That was slightly annoying but didn't really cause huge problems.

Now i recently upgraded to a new PC running windows 10, the samplerates are switching all the time leaving me either with distorted audio or hihat-like glitchy clicks playing over all audio.
Downloading and switching to ASIO4ALL driver fixes the problem, but it creates another one - no multiclient support. This means if i have ableton open, i can't hear any other sounds unless i save my work and close ableton. This creates problems when you have a huge library of samples/look for samples online while working.

Works well, for a while

08.12.2015
I've had my Akai EIE Pro for just over a year now, and for a long time it worked very well. The four combination sockets on the front are exceptionally useful, and the built in MIDI sockets and USB hub are a very good design feature, however I can no longer use my EIE to it's full potential due to its lack of OSX support. For Windows, however, I have found no issues, on 7, 8, 8.1, or 10.

Be aware that the XLR sockets are not properly balanced, and so it cannot handle long cables (had a lot of interference issues with 15 and 20 meter cables). Also be aware that in non-DAW programs, the interface treats input 1 and 2 as a Stereo pair, so if you only use one microphone, it will come out of one side, e.g. Input 1 would be on the left side only.

I would highly recommend this interface for anyone who is using a Windows-based DAW, but be cautious when using an OSX based system.
