The EIE I/O also houses three convenient USB inputs, in addition to its main USB port, enabling users to connect controllers, hard drives or any other peripheral when native ports on a computer may be limited.

The bus-powered USB interface is class compliant for plug-and-play operation with Mac OS X and Windows XP, Vista and 7.

The EIE I/O features traditional MIDI In and Out jacks for playing and controlling software with keyboard and pad controllers, workstations, and other MIDI-compatible instruments.
