The Allen & Heath ME-500 is a standalone digital personal mixer that receives up to 16 mono or stereo sources over a single Cat5 cable and offers a flexible and easy-to-operate solution for individual musicians, performers, and presenters who wish to control their own monitor sound whether on stage, in houses of worship, rehearsal rooms, studios, conferences, or live events.

ME is a 48 kHz system compatible with most Allen & Heath mixers including the dLive, GLD, and Qu systems, as well as Aviom A-Net 16. Additionally, the unit will work with other devices with MADI, Dante, and EtherSound connectors via the optional ME-U hub. Mute or solo individual channels, adjust the tone using the on-board 2-band EQ, and set the limiter to prevent loud peaks. Once a mix has been created, simply save the set for recall at a later date. A USB port on the rear of the interface provides transfer settings and firmware updates via USB key. The Allen & Heath ME-500 ships with a power supply.
