Metropolis Studios’ senior engineer, Paul Norris recently tested Austrian Audio’s OC818 microphone at the London studio complex. After gaining his degree in music technology at Hull University, Norris landed his first work experience job at Metropolis Studios in 2010.

On a recent visit to London, Austrian Audio’s CEO, Martin Seidl personally delivered a pair of the award-winning microphones to the studio.

“I’ve used them on every recording session I’ve done since we got them: on overheads and room mics for drums and piano, and I recorded strings on them the other day, then on a choir session,” enthused Norris. “My favourites were on the piano: it sounded amazing, but they’re also fantastic for drum overheads.”
