    Launching at NAMM, the new ME Personal Mixing System from A&H, a next generation personal monitoring solution. Check it out now on http://www.allen-heath.com/!

    In the video, it is stated “ME1 works out of the box with our GLD and iLive Range”.

    For GLD this is demonstrated, for iLive how is this possible without an option-card?

    Found the answer, at least ACE option card needed.

    That’s correct, wouter. If you have an MMO or Multi-Out card, you could also use the Aviom® socket on that.

    I was wondering. Are ME1’s only consumers of ACE data?

    If so, I was thinking that the ACE downstream could be copied using a level-2 switch with VLAN capability and the capability of setting up a port as receive-only (to avoid conflicts) on the same VLAN.

    Hi Wouter

    Yes, the ME-1 is a consumer of data only, with ‘Link Out’ retransmitting whatever is being received by ‘Link In’. It accepts ACE, dSnake, or Aviom® 16-channel A-Net®. Any system that provides this should work; We have had ME-1s running with a managed Gigabit PoE switch using VLANs, and with an unmanaged 100 megabit PoE switch.

    Hope this helps.

    So, in theory you could use a switch that supports port mirroring, connect that between the MixRack ACE in port 1 and your MixController, and use SPAN-out ports to feed the ME1’s?

    If this were true, fixed MixRack users that already have Dante installed in port 2, could also benefit from ME1 without a major investment in an extra Dante option card + ME-U.
    I would then be interested, for instance :-)

    Fixed format iLive does not allow to route any audio to the integrated ACE port (except surface local I/O, PFL and TB). You can use ME-1 on Port A ACE of modular iLive though.

    Ah, that’s good to know :-)
    Is this a hardware restriction or is it just not implemented in the firmware (as there is/was little need)

    Good question Wouter! (hardware restriction?). Is there any affordable way for fixed iLive users to get signal to them if already using a Dante card in port B? That 10 port hub with a Dante option card looks like it might be expensive?

    ME system certainly looks good! Just as a matter of interest I see Aviom have also got a new model A360 out at NAMM with more channels etc: http://www.prosoundweb.com/article/aviom_introduces_new_a360_next_generation_personal_mixer/

    Does the ME1 require a Gigabit POE switch or will it work with a 10/100?

    This has already been addressed in an above comment. 100mb is fine. Also the ACE link is only 100mbit so there’s no way that downlink could be gigabit.

    They look great. Even more glad I bought an MMO card when we did! When do they ship?

    I got to play with these at a trade show in Australia yesterday. Very nice gear. I was advised that it’s shipping quite soon. They are much nicer to use than an Aviom. The ambient mic works really nice too. Time to go shopping!
