ANALOG MONITORING IN 1U

Mastering-grade transparency and analog detail in Antelope’s TEC Award winning Satori

Satori provides a monitoring solution that maintains sonic accuracy while routing and switching between source material, especially when the D/A is handled by the clear and natural-sounding Antelope family of converters. Antelope Audio’s extensive background in designing pristine analog circuitry, highly optimized PCB layout and power supply technology result in mastering-grade transparency at a project studio price.

DESCRIPTION

THE SOUND OF STUDIO LEGENDS

Analog summing functionality in-the-box

In addition to providing outstanding monitoring capabilities, Satori includes a fully analog 8-channel summing mixer. Analog summing allows engineers who work completely “in-the-box” to mix signals in the analog domain for a more natural blending of instruments. The summing mixer inside Satori maintains punch, headroom and excellent dynamics, while offering the analog sound usually found only from legendary analog consoles.

…tons and tons of features in this box and it sounds absolutely wonderful!”

ANALOG ACCURACY

Innovative attenuator architecture with utmost precision

Whereas relay attenuators, being mechanical switches, provide the best sound quality, they suffer from popping or zippering artifacts when the volume is adjusted. Satori employs an innovative, patent-pending technology that dramatically reduces these artifacts while retaining all the advantages and excellent sonic performance.

The greatest advantage of using relays is that they achieve 0.05 dB stereo accuracy and stable L/R balance even at lower listening levels. Satori also boast .5db increments of source and output trim offset control. This pristine, passive attenuator signal path fully preserves audio signal integrity while revealing even the most subtle nuances.

HEADPHONE AMPS & TALKBACK

Satori comes with not one or two, but four independent headphone amps.

Surpassing most monitoring controllers, which offer one or two headphone outs, Satori features four independent headphone amps ready to provide several band members their own, unique input feed with independent volume control. Satori’s headphone drivers are audiophile-grade and are the same as those used in Antelope’s premium line of high-end home audio converters, able to drive both low and high impedance headphones.

A unique software talkback solution allows for instant communication with performers. Satori provides great flexibility by offering several kinds of talkback mic sources – via the built-in mic on the front panel or R4S; the 1/4” TRS connector on the rear panel or the built-in mic in the engineer’s laptop, and the mic on your phone when using the Satori App.

EVEN MORE FREEDOM

Control Satori via its own dedicated R4S remote control

Satori is bundled with a bus-powered remote control – R4S. The remote is specially designed for Satori, completely replicating the front panel functionality. It provides engineers with ease and ergonomics, controlling Satori directly from the mix position. R4S allows for lightning fast control of all sources and monitors, as well as talkback.

Turn your smartphone/tablet into a pro remote control for your monitoring system

Satori also comes with a free mobile application available for iOS and Android mobile devices. The intuitive app turns your smartphone or tablet into a professional remote control for your monitoring system. It completely manages Satori’s entire functionality, giving the producer the comfort of having fast and easy monitoring control at their fingertips.

ADVANCED SOFTWARE CONTROL

Satori offers flexible software control from any corner of your studio

Flexible and accurate control capabilities are made possible by Antelope’s next generation of software control panel technology, which has opened the door to a whole new generation of analog devices, such as the Satori Monitoring System and MP32 32-channel mic preamp. For Satori this means fast and responsive source and speaker output switching, accurate remote volume control and also Mute, Mono, Dim, Mid/Side monitoring.

Switching and adjusting inputs and outputs, assigning headphone monitoring for the artists and even talkback, is now possible from anywhere in the studio. This is all achieved due to the Satori’s elegant front panel, software control panel, ergonomic remote control and mobile application.

EXTENDED CONNECTIVITY

All I/O you might need in a device taking up just 1U space

An abundant number of I/Os Satori provides a generous amount of connectivity options. No other 1U monitoring system has eight stereo inputs and four stereo outputs and features such a comprehensive choice of connections: XLR, 1/4” TRS and D-Sub 25. Satori also boasts a subwoofer output and four 1/4” independent headphone outs.
