Make great-sounding audio recordings

Don't compromise recording quality just because you want an interface that fits your budget. Akai Professional's EIE interface lets you record 44.1kHz audio at 16-bit resolution. You'll love the EIE's flexible inputs, which accomodate both microphones and instruments. Plus, those genuine VU meters look cool and display levels accurately.

Desktop friendly design, road tough construction

Akai Professional made the EIE the perfect size for your desktop studio - and, they built it road tough, so you can record wherever your inspiration takes you. This rugged audio interface features an ultra-durable cast-aluminum chassis. The EIE is compact enough for easy transport, but Akai made sure to put the connections and controls right where you need them, for absolute convenience and better workflow.

All the connections you need

Because many of the best recording laptops feature a limited number of USB ports, Akai Professional decided to give the EIE a trio of extra USB inputs. That means you can take your controller keyboard, pad controller, and external hard drive, with you, and still have USB ports left over for your iLok or other peripherals. Plus, onboard MIDI I/O lets you hook up any MIDI based gear as well.

Akai Professional EIE 4-channel Audio/MIDI USB Interface Features:
  • Compact 4 x 4 audio interface with integrated 3-port USB hub makes an ideal nerve center for your home studio
  • 4 XLR/TRS combo jacks with phantom power - works with all your favorite mics and instruments
  • 2 VU meters with source selection, accurate level readings at all stages of recording
  • MIDI I/O ports and four 1/4" outputs on the rear, for the connectivity you need
  • Compact desktop format with rugged construction - perfect for your desktop or portable rig
Akai Professional's EIE interface helps you turn your inspiration into great-sounding reality!
