Comparisons for AI8 to other versions???? LE?

I found this chart for Artist versions -

BUT - no clue if any of it relates to AI8 or not?

I have this version of AI as part of the hardware bundle but no idea if it’s worth learning to use or not.
I need -
Muti-channel MIDI I/O
Ability to import/export otherDAW compatible audio files (post internal processing)
Possible MIDI re-channelizing/routings
Import Export SMF would be nice.
