Akai Professional, the name synonymous with music production, announces the new EIE I/O premium audio interface and USB hub.

Premium Audio Interface Provides Simultaneous 4-Channel Recording, Dual Stereo Output Pairs and Three Additional USB Ports for Peripherals.

The EIE I/O is a tabletop USB audio interface perfectly tailored for project and portable studio setups.

This four-in, four-out (4x4) device enables users on Mac and PC-based systems to record up to 24-bit resolution into virtually any DAW, recording or performance software.

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 compact recording interface contains high-quality components including nickel-plated input jacks, analog-style VU meters and a rugged aluminum casing for a powerful, professional, portable audio solution.

Each channel of the EIE I/O has a XLR- pots and Mic/Line/Guitar switches.

The EIE I/O sends and receives four audio channels on a single USB cable for simple, universal interface to a computer.

The three additional USB ports allow EIE I/O to function as a hub as well, bridging other MIDI controllers and hard-drives to the computer.

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.
