Description

Engineered and manufactured in Austria, The OC818 is Austrian Audio’s premier, professional, large diaphragm microphone. Its high sensitivity, low self-noise and ability to handle everything from a whisper to extreme SPLs make it the most advanced microphone for studio, broadcast and live applications. As the unique ceramic capsule design is so consistent, any OC818 is match-paired with any other OC818, and when in cardioid mode, it can also be match-paired with any OC18, its affordable, smaller sibling.

Features:

  • Handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule
    Made to the same critical dimensions as the classic CK12 capsules
  • Multiple polar patterns
    Cardioid, omnidirectional and custom programmable
  • Microprocessor control of polarisation voltages
    Allows remote controlled polar pattern settings
  • Two different analogue high-pass filters with three settings
    40 Hz, 80 Hz, 160 Hz
  • Two different types of analogue pads
    -10 dB, -20 dB
  • Dual outputs
    for recording each diaphragm separately

Handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule, made to same critical dimensions as the best legacy CK12 capsules we could find, measure, and record.

POLARPILOT APP
OPTIONAL OCR8 REQUIRED

The free PolarPilot app (Android and iOS) allows wireless control over your analog: patterns, high-pass and pad in real-time via BlueTooth!

  • save, recall, and share favorite settings
  • Discover and create 255 discrete polar patterns. Unheard of!
  • one setting may be stored in OC818 for use without PolarPilot app
  • Your OC818 is always pure analog. It is only the analog bias voltages that are being governed remotely. Switching also is always analog.
  • No digital in either the audio or bias paths. It’s everything you want with none of what you don’t.
  • 60 second OC818 clipping monitor/logger
  • Wireless control from the comfort of your chair!

POLARDESIGNER
OPEN-SOURCE PLUG-IN

  • design the polar pattern of your dreams
  • craft different polar pattern responses across 1-5 crossover bands
  • store, recall, and share presets
  • powerful Terminator AI for eliminating or rescuing selected frequencies and instruments
  • Equalization control for imprinting the tonality of free- field or diffuse-field idealized responses.
  • solo/mute each band
  • full automation of course
  • phase linear
  • optimized for use with the OC818 in Dual Output mode but works with any dual output source
  • Excellent for busy sessions (we’re looking at you, Nashville!) tune instrument pickup during the mix stage!
