Antelope Satori + R4S
Digitally Controlled Analog Monitoring and Summing System with R4S Remote Control, 4 Independent Headphone Outputs, and Control Panel Software – Mac/PC
Designed for the needs of modern studios, the Antelope Audio Satori is a digitally controlled analog monitoring and summing system with an advanced circuit design that delivers mastering-grade transparency while maintaining vivid analog realism and warmth. Satori comes with an easy-to-use software control application for Mac and Windows that gives you comprehensive remote control along with recallable user presets. Under the hood, quiet platinum relays and low-noise precision resistors provide accurate, stepped control room level attenuation, while four independent headphone amps serve individual band members. Satori includes a fully analog 8-channel summing mixer that lets you mix signals in the analog domain while working “in-the-box.” This bundle includes the R4S remote control.
Fully equipped to handle any studio monitoring scenario
Antelope Audio Satori employs premium stepped relays and precision resistors, giving you accurate level attenuation while maintaining sonic excellence. But Satori goes way beyond most monitoring controllers that offer just one or two headphone outs, with four independent headphone amps that give band members their own feeds, complete with independent volume controls. These audiophile-grade headphone drivers — the same as those found in Antelope’s high-end home audio converters — easily drive both low- and high-impedance headphones.
Mastering-grade sound at a project-studio price
Satori gives you a monitoring solution that maintains the sonic integrity of the source — especially when the D/A is being handled by one of Antelope’s outstanding converters. Antelope Audio’s extensive expertise in designing pristine analog circuitry, optimized PCB layouts, and high-tech power supplies enables them to endow Satori with mastering-grade sound at a project-studio price. Satori is a perfect match with Antelope’s popular Orion32 AD/DA interface (a Sweetwater best-seller). This dynamic duo would be an ideal complement to any mixing or mastering setup that requires the highest level of monitoring quality — whether in your home or in a world-class studio complex.
Analog summing functionality and generous I/O
Satori isn’t just an outstanding monitor controller, it also rocks an onboard 8-channel summing mixer! If you work completely “in-the-box,” Satori lets you mix signals in the analog domain for a more natural blending of instruments. Satori’s summing mixer maintains maximum headroom and wide dynamic range, while giving you the characteristic warmth and punch of legendary analog consoles. Satori provides generous connectivity options not found on other 1U monitoring systems, including eight stereo inputs, four stereo outputs, and a comprehensive choice of connections that include XLR, 1/4″ TRS, and D-Sub 25. Satori also rocks a subwoofer output and four independent 1/4″ independent headphone outs.
Analog sound, comprehensive digital control
Satori’s impeccable sonic performance comes courtesy of Antelope Audio’s advanced analog circuit design. But the flexible and comprehensive control capabilities you’ll enjoy are made possible by Antelope’s next-gen software control panel technology. For Satori, this means fast, responsive source and speaker output switching and accurate remote volume control, along with Mute, Mono, Dim, and Mid-side monitoring. The Satori Control Panel also gives you stereo peak meters for quick signal visualization. On Satori’s front panel, you get warmly lit buttons and a big aluminum volume knob, for quick, elegant management of major monitoring functions.
The convenience of remote control
The Antelope Audio R4S is a remote control for the company’s Satori monitoring and summing system. Connecting to Satori via USB, the R4S gives you control over Satori functions such as input select, monitor select, talkback, mono and mid-side modes, dim, and subwoofer channel on/off — all right from the convenience of your control room sweet spot. A big aluminum knob with a surrounding LED readout lets you control your monitor volume with precision repeatability.
