    The OC818 by Austrian Audio is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with multiple polar patterns, suitable for a range of applications.

    Key Features

    • Handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule, made to the same critical dimensions as the classic CK12 capsules
    • Two different analogue high-pass filters with three settings
    • Multiple polar patterns: cardioid, omnidirectional & custom programmable 
    • Two different types of analogue pads
    • Microprocessor control of polarisation voltages 
    • Dual outputs for recording each diaphragm separately 

    The critically acclaimed OC818 now comes in black! Engineered and manufactured in Austria, the OC818 has the ability to handle everything from a whisper to extreme SPL sources, making it an advanced choice microphone for studio, broadcast and live applications. 

    The optional OCR8 remote control and the PolarPilot App allow you to control your OC818 wirelessly and to create 255 discrete polar patterns. You also have real-time, wireless control over the analogue high pass filters and pad integrated in this mic giving you total command over your recording process.  

    You can use one OC818 in Dual Mode or put a second mic on top, then by using the OC818 StereoCreator Plugin you can choose between various stereo recording techniques such as M/S, X/Y or Blumlein. Harness the creative capabilities available in the AmbiCreator Plugin and get an ambisonic B-format signal out of two OC818 microphones!
