16 Channel Personal Mixer

16 Channel Personal Mixer

ME-500 is a walk-up-and-mix solution that is quick to set up and can be used instantly with no learning curve. With plug ‘n’ play setup and self-sufficient musicians, ME-500 is also a massive time-saver for the audio engineer.

16 inputs

Control up to 16 stereo or mono inputs with level and pan controls for each input.

Master 2-band EQ and Limiter

Protect your ears and craft the overall tone of your mix.

Automatic Setup

Plug in and start mixing.

8 User Presets

Levels, pan and mutes can all be stored and recalled at the touch of a button. Presets can be saved to USB and easily transferred to different ME-500s.

Engineer Friendly

Automatic Setup

With ME-500 there’s no time-consuming configuration. The first 16 channels/mixes sent from the mixer will be automatically mapped to ME-500’s 16 select keys, so it is fast and simple to deploy personal mixers in pressured situations such as festivals.

Musician Friendly

No Learning Curve

The intuitive hands-on controls and clear visual display make it easy for musicians to control their own monitor mixes. The uncluttered top panel makes control quick, easy, and intuitive: press a key to select one of the 16 sources and turn the rotary control to adjust the volume or push and turn to adjust the pan. Dedicated Mute and Solo switches ensure fast, instinctive control of the mix.

ME With 3rd Party Mixers

You don’t have to own an Allen & Heath mixer to benefit from the ME Personal Mixing System. If you’re using other console brands, the ME-U hub is your gateway to the ME system, with MADI and Dante option cards allowing a digital feed of up to 40 sources from third-party systems.

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