The Austrian Audio OC818 Microphone has now arrived at Funky Junk!
You’ll know from our Very Rough Guide to the AKG C12/C414 that we’re big fans of most things with a CK12 capsule and especially the early C12s and C12As that boasted the prized ‘brass capsules’; so when we heard a group of Austrian engineers were on a mission to recapture this capsule in all its fizzy glory, you can imagine our excitement.
Not only has great attention been paid to microphone capsule history – but a thought has been spared for the future of the microphone for live and for studio. Austrian Audio are building on the polar pattern remote control that came with the original C12s by introducing their PolarPilot App for Android and iOS as well as an open-source plugin in-depth polar pattern designer.
We’ll be putting a pair through their paces up at our SNAP! Studios shortly, so watch this space for Marco’s expert opinion.
