Austrian Audio OC818
A big favourite at our most recent Gear showcase punching well above its pricepoint, the Austrian Audio OC818 is a revolutionary multi-pattern dual-output large-diaphragm condenser microphone with optional wireless control. Onboard, the OC818 offers a choice of four selectable polar patterns, 10dB and 20dB pads, and three switchable highpass filters. But with Austrian Audio's open-source PolarDesigner plug-in (Mac and Windows), you can craft custom polar patterns for up to five different frequency bands. What's more, the PolarPilot mobile app (iOS, Android) gives you real-time wireless remote control over polar patterns, highpass filter, and pad settings via the optional OCR8 Bluetooth dongle.
Although small this very mighty product perfect for multiple applications from project studios to podcasting. .

With two mono channels with SuperAnalogue mic pres, SSL compression,plus EQ, insert points,full-size faders and not forgetting the legendary highly coveted SSL Bus compressor make this an incredible offering.
ATC SCM 25A
The new standard in nearfield monitoring, the ATC SCM25A Pro is a compact 3-way active ported studio reference monitor, with an integrated 235W amplifier, well suited for smaller to medium studios. The first compact 3-way in the range, the ATC SCM25A Pro had a tough brief to live up to - big enough to sound like its larger ATC brothers, but small enough for nearfield and outdoor broadcast work. Hence the compact 3-way design.
Using the renowned ATC 75mm soft-dome driver for the mids, a hand-built 7" paper-cone driver for the bass end and a 25mm soft-dome tweeter were obviously steps in the right direction. To make the ATC SCM25A Pro active meant installing a 235W Class A/B to power it all along effortlessly and give you the exemplary performance that you expect from ATC. Having been making speakers for several decades ATC have always moved with the times, delivering quality audio wherever it is required.
