Allen and Heath ME-1 40-Channel Personal Monitor Mixer

Give every performer fully customizable control of their monitor mix. Allen & Heath's ME-1 receives 40 sources via CAT5, plus there's a built-in ambient mic.

The Allen and Heath ME-1 Personal Mixer puts the musician in control of their own monitor mix. Each performer can be given a tailored setup that works perfectly for them, whether they crave maximum control over the fine details of their mix or just want the minimum of keys to press. Operation is intuitive and elegant, with simple controls, clear visual feedback and custom naming for instant familiarity.

ME-1 is the cornerstone of the ME Personal Mixing System and is ready to use with the Allen & Heath QU Series, GLD, dLive Series digital mixers. ME-1 is complemented by the ME-U hub, which opens up the benefits of ME to users of other professional digital mixers via Dante, EtherSound or MADI. ME-1 also has an Aviom compatibility mode for use with Aviom Pro16 systems.

Equally at home on stage, in rehearsal rooms, houses of worship or recording studios, with ME everyone benefits from slicker soundchecks, lower sound levels on stage and quicker setups, while the engineer will be saving precious buses on the mixer and cutting the time spent tweaking monitor mixes. Whether you are monitoring on headphones, wired or wireless in-ears, using drum thrones or local speakers, the ME Personal Mixing System offers access to an unprecedented number of channels, rugged Allen & Heath construction and unrivalled sound quality.

ME-500 vs ME-1: 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. read more 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.

16 assignable user keys

Backlit rubber keys make ME-1 controls perfectly visible in the dark. The 16 user keys can be assigned to a single source (mono or stereo) or to a Group, with all the convenience of pressing a single button no matter what you want to control -- the vocalist mic, a stereo pair or the whole drumkit. Preset store/recall can be enabled or disabled per key to present only the control that is needed.

16 user presets

Levels, pan, mutes and key assignments can all be stored and recalled at the touch of a button.Presets for different bands and application scenarios can be conveniently copied to USB key or the whole configuration saved. Ideal for archiving or quick transferring to other units.

Groups

Groups make it possible to mix up to 40 sources with only 16 keys. They also save a lot of buses at the main console: whereas other personal monitor systems rely on subgroups and pre-mixes sent from the console, ME-1 has the sophistication to do it all on-board whilst remaining easy to use.

OLED screen

Provides a clear display of level and pan for the selected source, system setup and information menus, and a highly responsive stereo signal meter. Can be dimmed for low-light operation.

Custom Naming

It helps to know which source you are tweaking! ME-1 can display custom names for all channels and groups. When coupled with an Allen & Heath GLD system using dSNAKE, the ME-1 does the work for you by picking up source names automatically from the stream.

One knob controls everything

A single, large rotary control beneath the display is used to access and navigate all of ME-1's most commonly used functions and menus, including:- Input control of level & pan- Group control of master level- Level/pan for each member of the group- Control of master EQ and limiter- Global Trim (simultaneously adjusts all channel levels to prevent running the mix too hot)

Master level and key

Dedicated control and key to access the Master 3-band EQ and limiter settings.

Built-in ambient mic

With ME-1, musicians are not isolated from the rest of the stage. The ambient mic keeps them in touch with the stage sound and lets them hear the audience and communicate with each other without the need to pull out their ear pieces. The local mic level is independent of the master level control.

Solo and Mute keys

Individual sources, groups or masters can be muted. Use the Solo key to meter and listen to just their contribution to the mix.
