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.
ME-1 and ME-500 mixers can be directly connected to any available ME, SLink, dSnake or Monitor port in an Allen & Heath digital mixing system. Multiple ME-1 and ME-500 mixers can be daisy-chained with all mixers powered via external PSU.
