Digitally controlled analog monitoring and summing system.
Satori is a true analog monitoring and summing system. A Japanese Buddhist term referring to enlightenment, Satori is designed to deliver an 'epiphany' experience to the sound engineer. Antelope's renowned relay-controlled stepped attenuator, the extremely versatile connectivity options and great selection of stereo effects such as mid-side monitoring, place the Satori among the most advanced monitoring controllers in the world, equally suited to both commercial and project studios. Satori expands upon the acclaimed design architecture of Eclipse 384 “ Antelope's award-winning mastering AD/DA and monitoring controller. Carefully designed analog circuits and fast, transparent relay attenuators ensure the audio integrity throughout the whole signal path.
Stepped relay attenuator with precision accuracy
Satori employs advanced, quiet gold-plated relays and precise resistors to facilitate fast, responsive level attenuation, without sacrificing excellent sonic performance. These relays achieve 0.05 dB stereo accuracy and stable L/R balance even at lower volume levels. The pristine, attenuator signal path fully preserves audio signal integrity while revealing even the most subtle nuances.
Headphone amps and talk back
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.
Analog summing functionality
In addition to providing outstanding monitoring capabilities, Satori includes a fully analog 8-channel summer. Analog summing allows engineers who work completely œin-the-box to mix signals in the analog domain for a more natural blending of instruments. The summer inside Satori maintains punch, headroom and excellent dynamics, while offering the analog sound usually found only from legendary analog consoles.
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, ¼'' TRS and D-Sub 25. Satori also boasts a subwoofer output and four ¼'' independent headphone outs.
Analog sound with digital control
The exceptionally clear sonic performance of Satori is derived from advanced analog circuit design. But the 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. The Satori Control Panel also features stereo peak meters for instant signal visualization.
Sleek and functional front panel control
Large warmly-lit front panel buttons and an ergonomic aluminum volume knob provide the user with elegant and fast management of all major monitoring functions. The result is a powerful state-of-the-art device that still feels user-friendly and simple to operate.
