    ME-500 - Overview

    16 Channel Personal Mixer
    Allen & Heath's 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 the audio engineer.

    Fast Setup
    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.

    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. 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.

    Note: Cat5 Link cables are not provided. Cables of suitable length will be needed to meet your application requirements.
