Everything you need for the Studio

The Austrian Audio OC818 Studio Set has everything you need for the studio. The set includes a single OC818 microphone, pop/windshield, shock mount, mini stand mount, XLR breakout cable and carry case. Ideal for use in your own studio or for when you prefer to use your own microphone at someone else’s, the Studio Set has the studio basics covered.

Handmade ceramic capsule for exceptional pickup quality
Handmade in Austria, a CKR12 ceramic capsule lies at the heart of the OC818. This exceptional quality capsule is critical to the OC818’s outstanding performance. Made to the highest standards, the capsule ensures that every detail is clearly expressed.

Dual outputs for recording flexibility
Dual outputs lets you record the front and rear capsules independently. This is ideal for when you might want to record separate channels for close-up vocals and ambient noise from the rest of the room, such as when recording a live performance.

Multi-polar patterns for recording flexibility
Thanks to its multi-polar pattern implementation, the Austrian Audio OC818 is extremely flexible. You can tailor the mic to suit the sound source and vocal style. This type of mic also helps in reducing feedback, controlling bleed during live recordings and even when being creative with varied mic techniques.

Polar Designer plug-in
With Austrian Audio’s free and Open Source PolarDesigner plug-in, you can extract the full potential of the dual outputs. When recording to stereo or dual-mono track, the plug-in software (Mac/Win: VST, AU and AAX) gives you unprecedented control of between one and five bands, each with selectable crossover points. Once you’ve hit on the perfect setting, you can store, recall and even share the preset.

Optional Bluetooth adaptor for even greater choice
Maximise the full potential of the Polar Designer plug-in, with the OCR8 (extra cost option). This connects to the rear of the microphone and delivers, world’s first, wireless pattern and switching control. The unique feature lets you discover and create an unprecedented 255 discrete polar patterns.

Open Acoustics Technology for natural sound
Austrian Audio’s proprietary Open Acoustics Technology positions the recording capsule and mount in as much free space as possible. This means that the mic captures every subtle nuance of sound, giving the most detailed recording or playback performance. The reduction of sound-reflecting surfaces also helps in keeping the sound as resonance-free as possible.

Maximise your studio time potential, with the flexible Austrian Audio OC818 Studio Set.
