Allen & Heath is debuting its new ME Personal Mixing System, and GLD Remote iPad app at the 2013 NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. Central to the universally compatible ME system is the small, fully-customisable ME-1 personal mixer, powered and connected via CAT5 and capable of managing up to 42 sources. ME-1 receives 40 sources via CAT5 (either mono or linked as stereo), and has a built-in ambient mic and local stereo aux input. The mixer’s flexible grouping function enables any combination of sources to be mixed and laid out on the surface from a simple 2 button ‘Me and Everything else’ set up to a full mix of 16 buttons, allowing the user to control the whole mix with just 16 or fewer keys. The configuration and up to 16 presets can also be stored, recalled and transferred via USB key for quick set ups or archiving. “We have listened to requests from engineers and installers for tools to create a truly bespoke mix for each artist without burning precious buses on the main mixer, but at the same time we wanted to make the performer experience as effortless as possible using just a few simple controls,” said A&H product specialist, Nicola Beretta. “The end result should be quicker sound checks, lower sound levels on stage and happy musicians!” Also debuting at NAMM is Allen & Heath’s latest addition to its range of iPad apps: the new GLD digital mixing system controller, GLD Remote, providing a comprehensive suite of mixing controls for remote wireless applications using the iPad or the iPad Mini. GLD Remote connects to the GLD-80 mixer on a wireless network and gives the user instant access to any of the mixers channel faders and mutes, DCA faders and mutes, image controls, aux sends and assignments as well as channel input and output processing, mic-pre control and full metering. www.allen-heath.com
