The Allen and Heath ME-1 Digital Personal Mixer is designed to give individual musicians, performers, and presenters the freedom to control their own tailored monitor mixes for use on stage or in houses of worship, rehearsal rooms, studios, conferences, or live events. This standalone digital personal mixer receives input from up to 40 sources via a single CAT5 cable from the main console (sold separately) and mixes these to a stereo and mono output to drive headphones, in-ear monitors, loudspeakers, or other monitoring devices over 3.5mm or 1/4″ outputs. The mixer features a simple user interface with intuitive, clear visual feedback, and custom naming system. This mixer is the cornerstone of the ME Personal Mixing System (sold separately) and is ready to use with the Allen & Heath iLive and GLD series Digital Mixers. It is complemented by the ME-U Hub, which opens up the benefits of ME to users of other professional digital mixers via the Dante AVB-Ready Audio Networking Solution, EtherSound Audio Network Card, or MADI Audio Plug-In Card (all sold separately). It also has an Aviom compatibility mode for use with Aviom Pro16 systems. Eliminate the need to use up main console buses by grouping the 40 channels within the mixer to simplify control for each musician. Key features include 16 assignable backlit user keys, 16 user presets, OLED screen, custom naming, rotary control knob, built-in ambient mic, solo and mute keys, headphone outputs, aux input, link in/out, DC in and USB port. ME-1 can be freestanding or surface-mounted. Allen & Heath is known for building high quality mixers for the last 40-plus years. At any time of day or night, across the globe, there is an Allen & Heath mixer out there working hard, sounding great and making life a little easier for the person at the controls.
