Austrian Audio announces that its new large diaphragm microphone, the OC818, will be displayed for the first time at the AES NY show courtesy of Cranborne Audio.

Handmade in Vienna, the OC818 is a multi-pattern dual-output condenser microphone equipped with a world-first: optional wireless control. Its unique design and outstanding sonics, combined with new wireless control technologies offering highly optimised workflows, has garnered the OC818 five-star reviews from all over the world in its first three months on the market.

The OC818 also features a second output that allows the recordist, engineer, musician and forward- thinking artist to record the rear-facing capsule independently of the forward-facing capsule. If both capsules are recorded to a stereo or dual-mono track, our free and Open Source PolarDesigner plug-in (Mac/Win: VST, AU & AAX) allows unprecedented control and tailoring of polar patterns between 1 and 5 bands with selectable crossover points.

At the heart of the OC818 is the patent-pending, handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule, made to the same critical dimensions as the best legacy CK12 capsules but with far more stability which means every OC818 is inherently paired with any other OC818, or even the OC18, its smaller and more affordable sibling.
