Hi dubhausdisco, just wanted to say I finally got around to buying the AKAI EiE. When the guy in the store handed it to me the first impression was "Wow, this is a solid piece of kit!"

I had brought my iPad with me and we checked that everything worked. Now I am getting familiar with it at home. I must say I love the headphone/monitoring setup - very useable.

Thanks for your advice at the start of the month :D

Phil.

You are very welcome!
I've recently hooked up my old Ashly compressors to the inserts... Lots of fun!

I bought the Akai EIE (NOT PRO) because of this thread.

It was on sale at Guitar Center's website for $136 as of Feb 20, 2013.

It works without a powered USB hub.

Very nice build quality, not a toy.

Got my EIE!! Seems great, can't wait to get stuck right into it... Does anyone know if there is a way to use a USB microphone with it?? I have a yeti blue which works great and would be awesome if it can be connected. Is there such thing as a USB to Xlr adapter or is there another way around it?

I don't think the Yeti needs an interface, just a powered hub and camera connection kit.

Matt,
You cannot use a USB mic with the EIE.
Even if you could, the yeti has a fixed sample rate of 48khz,
and the EIE is fixed at 44.1khz.

Hello fellow auriaers your encouraging words
on performance of the EIE have put me of a mind
to aquire one for my modest needs. I assume it doesn't
ship with a cable so my question based on study of
the backside photo(enlarged) would be is the output
connecter next to the usb icon a standard B?
Do you need an adapter or special cable to get
into the cckit? I'm pretty new to computers of
any kind- thanks so much to everyone sharing
their knowledge/experience    jp

Thanks Dubhaus

Didn't think so but worth asking. Will look into other mics as well...

With a little more research I found a dealer that included photos of everything shipped
and there was the A to B cable! So it's EEE-YI-EEE iO off to multitrack I go
