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 unrivalled sound quality. 16 assignable user keys 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. 16 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. Groups 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. Custom Naming It helps to know which source you are tweaking! ME-1 can display custom names for all channels and groups. When coupled with an Allen & Heath GLD system using dSNAKE the ME-1 does the work for you by picking up source names automatically from the stream. One knob controls everything 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 & pan Group control of master level Level/pan for each member of the group Control of master EQ and limiter Global Trim (simultaneously adjusts all channel levels to prevent running the mix too hot) Master level and key Dedicated control and key to access the Master 3-band EQ and limiter settings. 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. Solo and Mute keys Individual sources groups or masters can be muted. Use the Solo key to meter and listen to just their contribution to the mix. Shifted functions System setup standby mode and preset store are protected from accidental operation by holding Shift while pressing other keys. All input levels can be simultaneously trimmed by holding Shift while turning the rotary. Headphones Minijack and 1/4” headphone outputs with powerful discrete amplifier design. Mono Out 1/4” TRS balanced line out (mix only no ambient mic). Aux Input Stereo input for local sources such as MP3 players or click tracks. Sensitivity is well matched to portable consumer devices.
