Antelope Audio Satori Monitor Controller with Remote

Digitally-controlled true analog monitoring solution designed for today’s studios
MFR# Satori + R4S

Product Description

The Antelope Audio Satori Monitoring Controller is a digitally-controlled true analog 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 analog sound. Satori features the same high level of uncompromising sound quality thanks to advanced analog circuit design.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
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.

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.

Features:

  • A complete palette of inputs and outputs
  • Precise stepped relay volume control
  • Four independent headphone outputs with dedicated volume controls
  • Analog Summing allowing easy mixing
  • Extremely flexible routing
  • Analog sound with digital control
  • A user friendly desktop application available for both Windows and OS X

Just pristine sound!

By yohami z on March 25, 2021

Things to know.... You WILL hear clicks and pops when adjusting volume or toggling inputs, outputs or functionality features. This threw me at first, but when I realized what it was (it’s the high quality audio relays within the unit) and started to appreciate the clarity I gained, I got over it very quickly. The other major bummers all deal with the remote (r4s): 1.) it will not work without the software app open. Both the sarori and the r4s connect to the computer via usb cables, and the software acts as the bridge between the two. It would have been better if the r4s connected directly to the Satori so all “core functionality” worked on the r4s WITHOUT the software (ie: volume, speaker and input switching, mono and Mid Side engage, sum engage), but the other features like effects, headphones and summing volume had to be run via the app... basically just as if you were manipulating the front of the rack unit. 2.) There is no switch on the r4s... I choose to power down the rack gear in my console and my screens but leave the studio pc powered on so I have network connectivity to my studio machine, and all the gear in the console shits off when I do this except the r4s, again, because it’s connected to the computer and is bus powered, rather than powered by the Satori. The leds on the r4s go into a scrolling mode when the Satori is off, so I have to unplug the usb plug from the back of the remote every time I’m closing up for the day/night.

The positives of the Satori are great. Sound is unreal. You hear things in songs you’ve listened to since you were a kid that you’ve never noticed before. The input output connectivity is first rate. I don’t use it as a headphone distribution system, so I’m unsure I’ll ever need 8 stereo ins but they’re there if I need them. The summing feature is a moneymaker. I hear a very large difference when I bus 4 stereo stems to stereo inputs 5-8 and record the analog sun back to the daw. The mix is more glued but there’s also more space.

The Satori is an amazing unit. Most of the quirks come with the r4s, but I wouldn’t let it sway you from buying it if you need a high quality monitor controller combined with an analogue summing mixer and a headphone distribution system.
