The ultimate in stage monitor control.

With the ME-1 Personal Mixer, wild gesticulations from the stage to the sound engineer are a thing of the past. The musician is in control of his or her own personal monitor mix right from their spot on stage. 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 to make common adjustments. 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 dLive, iLive, GLD and Qu 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 faster and more productive sound checks, lower sound levels on stage and quicker setups, while the engineer will save precious buses on the mixer and cut 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 unrivaled sound quality.

Sixteen assignable 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. Levels, pan, mutes and key assignments can all be stored and recalled at the touch of a button, with 16 user presets. 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 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.

One Knob Control
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 and pan, group control of master level, level/pan for each member of the group, control of master EQ and limiter, and global Trim (simultaneously adjusts all channel levels to prevent running the mix too hot).

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.

ME-1 can be powered via Cat5 using a PoE switch or the ME-U hub, or mains powered using the included power supply. Its USB port lets you update firmware, and archive and transfer individual presets or the full configuration. You can mount it on top of a mic stand with the built-in 3/8 in. insert, or mount it on the side of the stand with the supplied bracket.
