OC818 Live Set - Stereo set of dual-output large-diaphragm condenser microphones with switchable directional characteristics

Dual Output Condenser Microphone

Austrian Audios OC818 is the result of decades of experience, as well as unique innovation and the world's first "Dual Output" microphone with switchable directional characteristics.

Based on the legendary CK12 microphone capsule, the Viennese audio engineers designed their own advanced CKR12 capsule by tracking down various originals of the famous vintage capsule around the world, meticulously testing, measuring and rating them to their best advantage Experience much more than just a "copy" to develop.

As a special feature, the lovingly hand-crafted microphone has a second output that allows the producer, engineer, musician, and future-oriented artist to record the rearward facing capsule independently of the forward facing capsule. When both capsules are recorded on a stereo or dual mono track in the DAW, the free and open source PolarDesigner plug-in (MAC / PC: VST, AU & AAX) provides unprecedented control and alignment between 1 and 5 Bands with selectable transition points.

To flexibly configure the OC818 in real-time in complex live situations or during the sound check, the optional Bluetooth OCR8 dongle can be attached to the back of the case. Subsequently, the behavior of both capsules, as well as the high-pass filter and pad switch can be accessed via the PolarPilot app for Android and iOS. This unique tool allows for an unprecedented number of 255 discrete directional characteristics ranging from eight, all kidney versions to omnidirectional.

The OC818 Live Set includes two OC818, OCH8 microphone terminals, one OCC8 mini XLR adapter, one OCW8 windscreen
