The TEC Award winning Satori is a digitally-controlled true analogue monitoring and summing system designed for today's studios. Antelope's Orion32 and Zen Studio interfaces have both been praised for their digital clarity, while maintaining the realism of analogue sound. Satori features the same high level of uncompromising sound quality thanks to advanced analogue circuit design.
Now Satori 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. Antelope's flexible software architecture allows you to have multiple mobile devices connected to the same Satori. This provides artists the opportunity to control the volume levels on their headphones themselves, while the engineer retains the control of the monitoring functions from the control room or even the play room while setting-up.
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 analogue circuitry, highly optimised PCB layout and power supply technology result in mastering-grade transparency at a project studio price.
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 of the relay attenuators. 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.
Analogue Sound With With Flexible Remote Control
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, optional ergonomic remote control and now a mobile application.
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 analogue 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.
Analogue Summing Functionality
In addition to providing outstanding monitoring capabilities, Satori includes a fully analogue 8-channel summing mixer. analogue summing allows engineers who work completely 'in-the-box' to mix signals in the analogue domain for a more natural blending of instruments. The summing mixer inside Satori maintains punch, headroom and excellent dynamics, while offering the analogue sound usually found only from legendary analogue consoles.
Headphone Amps And Talkback
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 inch 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.
An Abundant Amount Of I/O
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 inch TRS and D-Sub 25. Satori also boasts a subwoofer output and four 1/4 inch independent headphone outs.
