UK - Austrian Audio and UK distributor Sound Technology report that Austrian Audio OC818 and OC18 microphones, including a limited edition OC818 Studio Set Launch Edition, are shipping now.
The new OC18 and OC818 large diaphragm condenser microphones, made in Vienna, both featuring the same handmade capsule at their heart. Royal Marines commemorate fallen comrades with EM Acoustics
The single-diaphragm OC18 and dual-diaphragm OC818 both feature a new handmade ceramic CKR12 capsule, resulting in no compromise in sound between the two models. In fact, any OC18 and OC818 can be used as a matched pair due to the extreme precision of our manufacturing and measuring processes.
Since the OC18 and OC818 are sonically identical your choice is based only on application. The OC18 features a classic cardioid pick-up pattern and includes a selectable high-pass filter plus a -10/-20db Pad. The OC818 features the same filter and Pad, plus a variety of pick-up patterns selectable from the body, and some incredible extra features up its sleeve.
The OC818 is also the first multi-patterned microphone to feature the world’s first wireless pattern and switching control via an optional transmitter/receiver (OCR8) that can be fitted to the rear of the microphone. This feature allows for a previously unheard of 255 discrete polar patterns between figure-of-eight, through all of the cardioid versions and into omnidirectional. The free control software, PolarPilot, will be available for iOS and Android. This all occurs in the analogue domain and there is no processing or conversion of the mic’s signal to digital.
Both microphones are available as two Sets to fit different needs; a Studio Set with a custom Spidermount included, and a Live Set containing a pair of mics.
