Making Passion Heard
At the heart of Vienna is a deep tradition of love for music. At the heart of our revolutionary OC818 and OC18 is an equally passionate commitment to sound and engineering excellence. Each of these Large Diaphragm Condenser (LDC) microphones has a handcrafted Austrian Audio CKR12 ceramic capsule as its heart and the heart & soul of any classic microphone is the capsule. There are very few people that can design, let alone construct,
a classic edge-terminated capsule. There is also the question of building them by hand in Europe. The good news is that the skill, knowledge, and tradition live on at Austrian Audio. We’re proud to begin
“Made in Vienna. Again.” in 2019.
MADE IN VIENNA. AGAIN.
THE NEW VIENNESE ORIGINAL
Features the only handmade, Viennese, ceramic capsule; the CKR12. Each CKR12 made by Monika to the same critical dimensions as the best legacy CK12 capsules we could find, measure, and record | True Multi-Polar Patterns | Microprocessor control and stabilization of bias voltages | 2 different analog high-pass filters with 3 settings | 2 different types of analog pads | Dual outputs for recording each diaphragm separately | Debuts Austrian Audio’s Open Acoustics Technology | Handmade in Vienna, again!
NO FRILLS. PURE PASSION IN CARDIOID FORM.
| As per the OC818 but classic cardioid | Same handmade CKR12 ceramic capsule but single diaphragm | No microprocessor (factory calibrated bias voltage) | No microprocessor means no wireless control and no Preset Mode | Classic “Made in Vienna” mic, of course, but stripped down to the essentials | Every Austrian Audio OC18 and OC818 is within 1dB (same sensitivity) of each other so any two microphones is a stereo pair! | Add an OC18 to an OC818 for a spaced pair at any time!| Debuts Austrian Audio’s Open Acoustics Technology
