Im looking to be able to export tracks individually to a daw in my cpu from my Motif 6 classic. I was told I may need this device. How does the technology work? And Would I need an audio interface like the audio gram6? Also wold I specifically need cubase It would make a faser workflow to be able to ouutput the tracks! Thanks!

An AIEB2 (not AEIB2) will provide six assignable audio outputs (three left-right pairs) plus coaxial and optical digital audio. It’s typically used with a mixer.

However, if you intend to work with a DAW, an mLAN8E interface would probably be a better choice. It would require that your computer be equipped with a FireWire (IEEE 1394) port.

The Motif only has one space to mount either an AIEB2 or an mLAN8E, so you have to choose which is more appropriate for your needs.

What is coaxial and digital audio and how and that benefit my workstation? What mixer type should I search for to make the AIEB2 work if I can not find an mlan8e?

Digital audio from an AIEB2 is in S/PDIF format.
Coaxial is via RCA connectors. Optical is via TOSLINK.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S/PDIF

Both provide digital versions of the main analog output from the Motif - that is, 2-channel stereo.

Typical usage for an AIEB2 is live play where separate outputs can be controlled via a mixer, as desired. How the assignable outputs can be routed with a DAW depends on the interface with your computer.

-----------------

Note:
Upon investigating the mLAN8E further, it seems that support for its protocol is lacking in recent computer platforms and applications, so it likely wouldn’t be practical. (The mLAN16E2 and FW16E, for use with the Motif XS and XF, are still supported.)
