It’s in the ME-1 User Guide 🙂

– GLD dSNAKE or MONITOR port (40 channels + stereo links + names) – Use the I/O / Monitor screen.
– iLive Port B ACE via ME-U hub (40 channels + stereo links + names) – Use the Outputs / Port B:ACE screen 21-60. Connect Network for stereo links and names.
– iLive Port B ACE direct to ME-1 (40 channels, no stereo links or names) – Use the Outputs / Port B:ACE screen 21-60.
– iLive MMO Aviom® port (16 channels + stereo links, no names) – Use the Outputs / Port B:MMO screen.
– Aviom® A-Net 16 (16 channels + stereo links, no names)
– Other via ME-U hub (up to 40 channels via Dante, MADI, ES) – Use PC > Network for stereo links and names.

The reason is that ME-1 is designed to work seamlessly with dSNAKE, and the channel allocation on dSNAKE (albeit invisible to the user) is 21-60 for Monitor outputs. 1-20 are reserved for AR2412 and AR84 outputs. ACE has many other applications and to preserve flexibility we cannot have a dedicate Monitor output patch, so you’ll have to tell the ACE cards explicitly to use 21-60 for ME-1.
