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.

solid

lead, 23.04.2017
Cool solid piece of hardware, but i do find that there is a lot of noise on the inputs when using a mic, or just that the noise to signal ratio is very high, i think a way around this could be to use a pre-amp, as the signal is very low without one.
