Austrian Audio – OC818 & OC18 – Kondensatormikrofoner med smart tvist

Austrian Audio har kombinerat gammal expertis med nya smarta innovationer för att leverera fantastiskt bra stormembranstudiomikrofoner till ett väldigt övertygande pris. 

Den nya handbyggda CKR12 keramiska kapseln är byggd på samma sätt och av samma personer som byggde de klassiska AKG mikrofonerna C12 & C414 där originalkapseln CK12 hittas.

En ny smart funktion är att karaktäristiken på OC818 kan fjärrstyras via BlueTooth med OCR8 BlueTooth Dongle. Perfekt för användning vid installation, overhead och uppmickning av kör mm. OC818 har även dubbla utgångar (extrakabel medföljer), vilket medför möjlighet att spela in rundupptagande på två separata kanaler.

Alla CKR12 kapslar är så noga matchade att man i praktiken kan använda vilken som helst som ett stereo par. Dvs 2x OC818 eller 2x OC18.

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.

The heart of the OC818 is the CKR12 Ceramic Capsule

”We bring passion to everything we do, and nobody brings more than our engineering team. Every CKR12 ceramic capsule is handmade in-house at our facility in Vienna and now we are developing the next generation of transducer and microphone builders to serve our expanding customer-base.”

Key Features OC818:
-Handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule. Made to the same critical dimensions as the classic CK12 capsules
-Multiple polar patterns. Cardioid, omnidirectional & 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

Key Features OC18:
-The same handcrafted design as the OC818. Classic cardioid
-The same handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule. Only Single diaphragm
-Every Austrian Audio OC18 and OC818 is within 1dB of each other Making any two microphones a stereo pair.

Polar Designer

Austrian Audio’s open-source PolarDesigner plug-in is available as a free download from their website, compatible with VST3, AAX, AU (OSX 64 Bit / Windows 32 & 64 Bit) formats. It’s intended primarily for use with the OC818, but should work with any microphone that allows back–to–back cardioid capsules to be captured separately — obvious candidates include the Lewitt LCT 640 TS, Sennheiser MKH 800 Twin and Pearl ELM-A, as well as the Townsend Labs Sphere modelling microphone. In fact, the functionality of Polar Designer overlaps to some extent with that of the Sphere system’s plug-ins, though there is no attempt here to model the characteristics of other microphones.
