Supporting up to professional-grade 24-bit/96kHz format, this rugged 4-in/4-out tabletop USB audio interface adds quality audio I/O to your favorite Mac or PC DAW. Four front-mounted XLR/TRS combo jacks provide easy access for your microphone-level, line-level, or instrument-level sources, and VU meters let keep a close eye on your levels. And in addition to its main USB 2.0 port, three additional USB ports let you hook up the rest of your gear, making the Akai Professional EIE Pro the perfect interface for your laptop studio.

Record professional-quality audio

Just because you're looking for a good deal on an audio interface shouldn't mean you have to limit your recording quality. That's why Akai gave the EIE Pro professional-grade digital converters. The EIE Pro lets you record 24-bit audio at 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, or 96kHz resolution. Are you ready for professional studio work? The EIE Pro is!

Built to handle life on the go

When Akai designed the EIE Pro for life on the road, they weren't fooling around. This rugged audio interface features an ultra-durable cast-aluminum chassis. So no matter where your music takes you, your EIE Pro will be ready to record when you get there.

The perfect interface for your portable studio

But a tank-like exterior isn't the only thing that makes the EIE Pro an ideal audio interface for laptop-based recording. Because many of the best recording laptops feature a limited number of USB ports, Akai decided to give the EIE Pro 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.
