Designed by a team of former AKG personnel, the Austrian Audio OC18 Studio Set is a large-diaphragm studio condenser microphone offering detailed audio capture for vocalists, voiceover artists, musicians, and producers in personal and commercial recording facilities. The handmade 1" ceramic capsule features a gold-plated polymer membrane and a cardioid polar pattern, which yields reliable on-axis directivity with enhanced off-axis rejection. Front-panel switches are provided for easy access to the pad and roll-off settings.

Set the pad to -10 or -20 dB to avoid distortion when miking loud sources such as drums or guitar cabinets. Activate the high-pass filter at 40, 80, or 160 Hz for attenuation of low-frequency problems including rumble and proximity effect. The OC18's housing is constructed of zinc-aluminum alloy for strength and durability. The OC18 Studio Set includes a vibration-reducing shockmount, a traditional mic clip, a windscreen for mitigating noise from breaths and blasts of air, and a protective carry case. Being 48 VDC phantom powered, the OC18 does not require batteries or an external power supply.

Handcrafted Condenser Capsule - Handcrafted CKR6 ceramic capsule like the CKR12 capsule, but with a single diaphragm
Precision Matching- Matched within 1 dB of every other OC18 or OC818 to allow the creation of stereo pairs (additional microphones available separately)
Studio Sound Quality - High sensitivity and low self-noise means it can handle everything from a whisper to extreme SPLs without distortion
Onboard Settings - Two-stage pad (-10 or -20 dB) to prevent distortion and high-pass filter with three positions (40, 80, or 160 Hz) for reduction of low-frequency rumble and excessive bass
