Features


ME-1_16_assignable

16 Backlit Keys

Each key is assignable to a single mono or stereo source (e.g. bass guitar) or to a group of sources (e.g. the whole drumkit).


16 User Presets

Levels, pan, mutes and key assignments can all be stored and recalled at the touch of a button. Presets can also be stored to USB and recalled on any ME-1 unit.


Groups

Sources can be grouped within the ME-1, so each performer can use different groups without consuming buses on the main console.


ME-1_OLEd

Custom Naming

ME-1 can display custom names for all channels and groups. ME-1s connected to a dLive or SQ mixer automatically pick up names from the console.


ME-1_Custom_Naming

Built-in Ambient Mic

The ambient mic keeps performers in touch with the stage sound and lets them hear the audience and communicate with each other without needing to pull out their ear pieces.


Which ME is right for ME?

Although superficially similar, ME-1 and ME-500 are quite different solutions for different types of users and scenarios. For resident artists (such as a broadcast house band or church praise band), shows with high channel counts and plenty of rehearsal time, ME-1 allows the engineer to configure each unit to perfectly reflect each artist’s tastes and needs. For budget-conscious or low channel count applications, or for more impromptu scenarios where the engineer and artists have very limited soundcheck time (festivals being the typical example), ME-500 is a great solution for getting the show up and running with minimum fuss.

System Examples


 

ME-1 and ME-500 mixers can be directly connected to any available ME, SLink, dSnake or Monitor port in an Allen & Heath digital mixing system. Multiple ME-1 and ME-500 mixers can be daisy-chained with all mixers powered via external PSU.

The ME-U hub can be connected to any available ME, SLink, dSnake or Monitor port in an Allen & Heath digital mixing system. ME-1 and ME-500 mixers connected directly to the ME-U are powered via PoE. Additional ME-1 and ME-500 mixers can be daisy-chained and powered via external PSU. Multiple ME-U hubs can be daisy-chained together if more than 10 ports are required.


 

ME 3rd Party Options

The ME-U hub can be fitted with a Dante or MADI option card enabling the connection of 3rd party digital mixing systems.

ME-1 and ME-500 mixers connected directly to the ME-U are powered via PoE. Additional ME-1 and ME-500 mixers can be daisy-chained and powered via external PSU. Multiple ME-U hubs can be daisy-chained together if more than 10 ports are required.

ME-1 and ME-500 can be used as drop-in replacements for older AVIOM® A-16ii units.

DiGiCo and ME

The DMI-ME option card enables selected DiGiCo consoles to send up to 40 channels to a ME system. See the DiGiCo website for more details.
