Austrian Audio has released the OCR8 Bluetooth Dongle, which enables control over the directional characteristics and pad switches of its OC818 microphone via Bluetooth from a smart mobile device.

Austrian Audio OC818The OCR8 is an external Bluetooth device that enables ‘remote-control’ of the flagship Austrian Audio OC818 microphone. It iis inserted into the OC818’s second diaphragm output to be powered alongside the microphone’s 48V phantom supply; no batteries are needed.

The OCR8 works alongside an app called PolarPilot. This app is the main interface that enables control of the OC818 via Bluetooth. Downloadable for both iOS and Android devices, PolarPilot has a pattern slider that continuously blends between the pattern options that exist on the microphone’s physical switches.

A total of 255 polar patterns are available using PolarPilot, ranging from omni to Fig-of-8, simply by adjusting the blend and biasing between the front and rear capsules of the CKR12’s dual diaphragms.

The Austrian Audio OCR8 Bluetooth Dongle is available in the UK via Sound Technology priced at £129 RRP inc VAT. The OC818 microphone is available in two packages – a Studio Set priced at £879 RRP inc VAT and a Live Set priced at £1679 RRP inc VAT.
