Austrian Audio's OC818 is the result of decades of experience and unique innovation, and is the world's first dual output microphone with a switchable polar pattern. Based on the legendary CK12 microphone capsule, the Viennese audio engineers designed their own, further developed CKR12 capsule by tracking down various originals of the famous vintage capsule around the world and meticulously testing, measuring and evaluating them for their best characteristics in order to develop much more than just a copy from the data and experience gained.As a special feature, the lovingly hand-crafted microphone has a second output that allows the producer, engineer, musician and forward-thinking artist to record the rear-facing capsule independently of the front-facing capsule. When recording both capsules on a stereo or dual-mono track in the DAW, the free and open source PolarDesigner plug-in (MAC/PC: VST, AU & AAX) allows unprecedented control and adjustment of the polar pattern between 1 and 5 bands with selectable transition points.To flexibly configure the OC818 in real-time in complex live situations or during sound check, the optional OCR8 Bluetooth dongle can be attached to the back of the housing. The PolarPilot app for Android and iOS can then be used to access the behaviour of both capsules, as well as the high-pass filter and pad switch. This unique tool allows for an unprecedented 255 discrete polar patterns ranging from figure-eight, all cardioid versions to omnidirectional.The OC818 Studio Set includes the OC818, the OCS8 microphone spider, an OCH8 microphone clamp, an OCC8 mini-XLR adapter, an OCW8 windscreen, and a case for microphone and accessories.
