Allen and Heath ME-500 Personal Monitoring Mixer

16-channel personal mixer with intuitive hands-on controls and crisp visual display
MFR# AH-ME-500

Product Description

The Allen and Heath ME-500 is a 16-channel personal mixer with intuitive hands-on controls and crisp visual display designed 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.

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.

Sound Pedigree

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 & Heath’s 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’s built-in limiter to protect performers’ ears from unexpected spikes in levels.

Compatible with Allen & Heath and 3rd party mixers When a personal mixing system sounds this good you want everyone to hear it, so Allen and Heath made it possible for ME-500 to interface with most digital audio systems. If you’re using one of Allen and Heath's 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 topology 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 mounted

ME personal mixers have a threaded 3/8” 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). ME-1 also comes with a headphone hanger, which can also be purchased as an accessory for ME-500 (part number AA8705).

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.

I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
