Common name: Austrian Audio OC18
Production Status: In production
The OC818 is large diaphragm multi-pattern condenser microphone engineered and manufactured in Austria. It features high sensitivity, low self-noise and ability to handle extreme SPLs. It is equipped with a switchable 40, 80 or 160 Hz 6 dB/octave low-cut filter and a -10 dB or -20 dB attenuation pad. It is ideal for studio, broadcast and live applications. The unique ceramic capsule design is so consistent that any the OC18 can be match-paired with any other OC18 or paired with any OC818 set in cardioid mode. The handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule is manufactured to the same critical dimensions as the classic CK12 capsules. Microprocessor control of polarisation voltages allows for remote controlled polar pattern settings and dual outputs for recording each diaphragm separately. Includes stand adapter, shock-mount and foam windscreen.
