    Each channel of the EIE has a XLR inch combo jack, dedicated sturdy gain-pots and Mic/Line/Guitar switches. The EIE features four discrete-design preamplifiers with 48V phantom power for use with virtually any microphone. On the back of the unit you'll find four insert points for connecting external cessors such as compressors or gates. There are also an additional four analogueue outputs to allow connection of multiple monitors or for use as cue sends. Both pairs of outputs can be monitored visually with the high-quality, analogue VU meters viding classic features with modern style. For remote tracking and alternative playback, the EIE has a 1/4 inch TRS headphone output. The high quality analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue converters ensure that every detail of your session or performance gets captured and played back faithfully.
    The EIE sends and receives four audio channels on a single USB cable for simple, universal interface to a computer. The three additional USB ports allow the EIE to function as a hub as well, bridging other MIDI controllers and hard-drives to the computer. EIE's USB interface is class compliant for plug-and-play operation with Mac OS X and Windows XP, Vista and 7. The EIE features traditional MIDI In and Out jacks for playing and controlling software with keyboard and pad controllers, workstations and other MIDI-compatible instruments.
