Take Monitoring On Stage Or In The Studio To The Next Level With The Allen & Heath ME-500 16 Channel Personal Monitor Mixer

The ME-500 personal mixers intuitive hands-on controls and crisp visual display make it easy for musicians to quickly build and control their own monitor mixes. With plug and play setup and self-sufficient musicians, ME-500 is also a massive time-saver for the audio engineer.

ME-500 is ideal for keeping onstage sound levels under control and speeding up sound checks in a wide variety of live environments, from touring bands to orchestral performances and houses of worship. The ME-500 is also a smart, cost-effective choice for foldback mixing in the studio.

Simple And Powerful

ME-500 is designed to give musicians powerful, detailed control over their monitor sound, without the distraction of complex menus and clutter. The rotary control beneath the display navigates and controls most functions and, together with the dimmable, backlit keys including dedicated Solo and Mute controls and display, makes it easy to find your way around ME-500, even in the dark. Each ME-500 can store and recall 8 user presets, so mixes can be saved for different songs, musicians or shows. Presets and whole configurations can be saved to USB for archiving or swapping between ME-500s.

Plug And Play Setup

With ME-500 theres 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-500s fast and simple to deploy personal mixers in pressured situations such as festivals.

Build Quality

Designed in the UK and built to Allen & Heaths zero compromise standards, the ME-500 is tough enough for the rigors of touring. Add the peace of mind factor of locking EtherCon connectors and you have a mixer that's ready for whatever you throw at it.

Sound Pedigree

We know that the quality of their monitors has a profound effect on a musician's performance and on their enjoyment of the show. ME-500 continues Allen & Heaths long-standing tradition of exceptional audio quality, delivering 16 channels of clean, uncolored sound. The headphone amp design delivers plenty of power, complemented by ME-500 ears from unexpected spikes in levels.

Compatible With Allen and Heath And 3rd Party Mixers

When a personal mixing system sounds this good you want everyone to hear it, so we've made it possible for ME-500 to interface with most digital audio systems. If you're using one of our own digital mixers, ME-500 is compatible right out of the box. If you're using other digital mixers you'll need to add a ME-U hub fitted with a Dante, MADI, Waves or EtherSound module.

Scalable

Whether you're working with a soloist, a full orchestra or more, ME has you covered. There is no limit to the number of ME personal mixers you can add to a system, plus you're free to mix and match ME-1s and ME-500s, so everyone can enjoy great monitors. Secure EtherCon connectors allow ME-500s to be daisy-chained, or deployed in a star topplogy using the ME-U or an off-the-shelf PoE switch.

8 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.

Free Standing Or Surface Mounting

ME personal mixers have a threaded 3/8 - 1/4 insert for mounting directly on the top of a mic stand. ME-1 also come supplied with a bracket for mounting on the side of a mic stand. This bracket is available as an optional extra for ME-500 (part number AB8999).
