A convenient interface (EIE Pro)

By CerotoneSystem, 25/11/2014
The features that attracted me the most are:
The number of inputs / outputs (4 mono or 2 stereo) XLR or Jack with insert behind the card and the level mic / guitar Line facade.
The meters are very practical and true (although I feel it captures the master of the signal without effects on my ableton which can make typing in the red even with a limited eg ... ).
The practical side of Headphone Select for the headphone output, a mix knob for the signal in or out or in between. Phantom power, and switch level mic / guitar. Gains of knobs.
It covers the 16/24 bit and 44 kHz / 96 kHz.

I turn to the config following: 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 / 8GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Mac OS X mid 2011 (running in dual core 2x4 for now).


I had no installation problems, I think Akai-corrected bugs early version. I can listen to music on the net with, as I can work in computer music

I use Ableton native or Waves VST plugins but mainly as Razor, U-he ... and they look pretty good even now my computer lags (BAWE it consumes these brands) 2x4 go dual core. In contrast, with native plugin Ableton we can put a lot of track with quite substantial chaining.

Then I use to get the hardware (comps, synths ...) and I've used Live without worries. (As against the card is a bit grossse to transport)


Installation was made without problem as I said above, I rarely even too much hassle to install with friends, for jam sessions. So no worries to report incompatibilities my side.


I use it for a few months and I've never had any major problems with the card has a few bugs that I had it or not detected because the lighting was probably occurred at a bad time. I had a m-audio fast track before.

This is not LA sound card, but a good face (a pretty cool aviator side), it is stable even after several hours of consecutive use. But precisely at this price it has many more advantages than disadvantages.

excellent sound card (EIE Pro)

I mainly use it with my PC. Sometimes I am also serving on my Akai DSP 16.
I also connects via USB on a PV8 console and a Peavey 24 ZMX Electronic Alto home. Never a problem.


The drivers are stable. I often use with Ableton or Mixcraft 6
Ability to record four tracks, but I have never recorded more than two tracks simultaneously.
The gain knobs are accurate. The VU meters are enlightened in red that you exceed the limits which is very useful especially when you are recording alone. Inters micro / line selection are useful.


I installed the drivers and everything worked from the start. So easy config.


I use it since 2012 and if I had the choice again no hesitation. Never planted, reliable brief excellent quality and good quality / price ratio. I made this choice because I already had the hardware Akai jnen and am very happy.
