[NAMM] Akai EIE Pro
Akai Pro has announced the EIE Pro, a new digital audio interface and USB hub.
The EIE Pro is a tabletop audio/MIDI interface with USB hub in one box.
The USB audio interface on the EIE Pro is tailored for professional, project and portable studio setups. This four-in, four-out (4×4) device enables recording at up to 24-bit resolution and sample rates of 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz or 96 kHz into a DAW, recording or performance software on a Mac or PC. The EIE Pro also houses three convenient USB inputs, in addition to its main USB port, enabling it to connect to controllers, hard drives or any other peripheral when native ports on a computer may be limited. The compact recording audio interface contains components including nickel-plated input jacks, analog-style VU meters and an aluminum casing.
