Austrian Audio and UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd have announced the immediate availability of the Austrian Audio OCR8 Bluetooth Dongle. The OCR8 is used to control the directional characteristics and pad switches of an OC818 microphone via Bluetooth from a smart mobile device.

The Austrian Audio OCR8 is an external Bluetooth device that enables ‘remote-control' of the flagship Austrian Audio OC818 microphone. It is a small black device that is inserted into the OC818’s second diaphragm output to be powered alongside the mic’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.

Two-hundred and fifty-five polar patterns are available using PolarPilot and they range from omni to figure-of-eight, simply by adjusting the blend and biasing between the front and rear capsules of the CKR12’s dual diaphragms.
