Philip from Austrian Audio introduced us to the OC16, a cardioid large-condenser mic with the same Vienna-made capsule as the OC18, but in a more affordable package. Equipped with a 2 step hi pass filter, the OC16 is an extremely flexible all-rounder and can be used on a wide variety of instruments: From drums to electric and acoustic guitars, pianos, wind and string instruments to vocals. Next we got a glimpse of the OD303, delivering Austrian Audio's Open Acoustic technology in a rugged package designed to withstand live environments at an affordable price point. We also got to see some of their new instrument microphones.
