The SAT-2 is a passive stereo audio device that provides you with  attenuation and control over your signal level wherever you may need it,  whether it be at the output of a pair of high-gain mic preamps, or  before your studio speakers as a compact desktop monitor controller.  Exceptional build quality and high-grade components ensure noiseless  operation, without any degradation or coloration of the source material.

When using the SAT-2 as a monitor controller, simply connect it in  between your playback device or recording interface and a pair of  powered speakers. The SAT-2 is equally useful in a recording studio or  with a simple PA rig to control the overall output levels. Both XLR and  ¼" TRS options are provided for the inputs of the SAT-2, eliminating the  need for adapter cables. XLR outputs connect to your speakers, while  the trim knob provides an easy-access master volume control. Mute and  mono switches allow you to silence the outputs or sum left and right  together to check mixes for mono phase compatibility. A handy dim switch  with adjustable level control allows you to temporarily lower the  output volume without losing the setting on the main trim control.

The SAT-2 can also be used to attenuate signals before sending them  to your audio interface, so you can drive your mic preamps hard for  coloration without clipping the inputs of the digital audio converter.  This allows you to have your preamps turned up to their sweet spot  without having to engage the input pad or risk overloading when  recording. A high quality 4-pole rotary knob ensures consistent L-R  tracking over the entire range of the trim pot, fully maintaining the  left-right balance of stereo sources.

Compact but extremely rugged, the SAT-2 is housed in a 14-gauge solid  steel enclosure, with a book-end design that protects the connectors  and switches from damage, and I-beam construction that prevents stress  on the circuit board. The SAT-2 provides clean and transparent operation  with a number of useful features and applications, making it a simple  yet powerful device for your audio toolbox.
