Allen & Heath ME-500 16-Channel Personal Mixer
The ME Personal Mixing System 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 and clear visual feedback for instant familiarity. The system has earned respect for rugged reliability on the road, and of course, it lives up to Allen & Heath’s reputation for exceptional audio quality.
16 Channel Personal Mixer
ME-500 is a powerful walk-up-and-mix solution that’s quick to set up and easy for just about anyone to learn in moments. The ME-500 personal mixer’s intuitive hands-on controls and crisp visual display make it easy for musicians to quickly build and control their own monitor mixes. With plug ‘n’ play setup and self-sufficient musicians, ME-500 is also a massive time-saver for audio engineers.
For budget-conscious or low channel count applications, or for more impromptu scenarios where the engineer and artists have very limited soundcheck time (festivals for example), the ME-500 is a great solution for getting your show up and running with minimum fuss.
With ME-500 there’s no time-consuming configuration of individual units. The first 16 mono/stereo channels and/or mixes assigned from the mixer will be automatically mapped to ME-500’s 16 select keys, so it’s fast and simple to deploy personal mixers in pressured situations such as festivals.
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
