Austrian Audio OC818 Studio Set Launch Limited Edition

The Austrian Audio OC818 Studio Set Launch Limited Edition is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with multiple polar patterns that also allows you to save, recall, and share favorite settings. The initial product range consists of two large-diaphragm capacitor microphones, both entirely manufactured in Vienna and based on Austrian Audio's new CK12–inspired capsule.

The limited editon features Austrian Audio pop filter.

Polar pattern:
You can change the polar pattern with the slider below the graphic. For small changes, you can also use the ''-'' or ''+’' buttons. Please note that the microphone needs a few seconds to adapt to the new pattern, especially if you switch all the way from figure-8 (left) to omni (right) or vice versa (this gives any sluggish electrons time to catch up). Please also note that if you are using the slider, the polar pattern will only start to adjust once you have released the slider!

High Pass Filter and Pad Switch:
The high pass filter and the pad switch can be remote controlled as well and work the same way as the physical switches on the OC818. The physical switches on the OC818 are always inactive in Preset Mode!

Preset Mode:
If you unplug the OC818 will keep the latest pattern settings and store them in the “•” (= Preset Mode) position. By setting the microphone to this position, you can always retrieve the stored setting at any time, including Pad and High Pass settings. Note that the hardware controls for Pad and High Pass on the microphone are overridden in PresetMode and only become active again once you switch to another polar pattern position.

Austrian Audio OC818 Features

  • multiple polar patterns
  • microprocessor control of polarization voltages
  • 2 different analog high-pass filters with 3 settings
  • 2 different types of analog pads
  • dual out- puts for recording each diaphragm separately
