Measuring wind-noise performance Modular Windshield Kit perform ance graph

Wind-noise reduction is difficult to characterise - the figure depends upon many factors including frequency, the type and size of microphone used, and even the wind itself. Rycote is known for making realistic measurements and quoting honest, conservative results. The figures given here - attenuation @ 100Hz - are the result of tests using a Schoeps CMC641 microphone under laboratory conditions.

Modular Suspension & Connbox Shock Rating: MAX Featuring Rycote’s patented Lyre® suspension webs, our Modular Suspensions provide second-to-none isolation against handling and cable-borne noises, whilst always keeping a firm grip on the microphone. Made of Hytrel, the Lyre® suspensions are virtually unbreakable, and since they do not use any elastic or rubber components never need replacing or re-threading. A Connbox is fitted as standard to Small, Medium and Large Suspensions, to allow for maximum reduction of unwanted noise by breaking the transmission path of cable-borne noises. The comfortable pistol-grip handle allows for hand-held use of the suspension, but also features a 3/8” adaptor for quick and easy fitting directly to a boom pole.

Modular Windshield & Windjammer速 Windshield Rating: MAX Designed to provide excellent wind-noise attenuation with minimal high-frequency loss, the Modular Windshield is a lightweight, durable basket design, offering 37dB (100Hz) windnoise attenuation when used on its own - without a Windjammer速. First introduced by Rycote in 1985, the Windjammer速 is a highquality synthetic fur cover, designed to fit perfectly over the Modular Windshield to give an additional 13dB (100Hz) of wind noise attenuation. Achieving a total of 50dB (100Hz) wind-noise attenuation with little high-frequency loss, the Windjammer速 allows for an excellent standard of audio recordings even in very high wind conditions.

Stereo Windshield Kit Windshield Rating: MAX

Shock Rating: MAX

Modular Windshield Kits are now also available for Stereo pairs. This complete modular system can be configured to allow almost any stereo pair, single shank stereo microphone, and stereo capsule microphone to be shock-mounted and provided with varying degrees of windshielding. Stereo Windshield Kits include the following components: Suspension, Windshield & Windjammer速 (Connboxes are not included, and are available separately) Benefitting from the patented Lyre速 technology already in use with all our mono suspensions, the new stereo suspensions are now more robust, easier to set up, less prone to shocks and vibrations, lighter, and more versatile.

Product Variations Rycote’s new ORTF Windshield kit is designed for matched pairs of Schoeps CCM or Sennheiser MKH 8000 mics, and consists of a Lyre® suspension, a cable clamp, and a 145mm Stereo Windshield & Windjammer® large enough to comfortably accommodate the microphones. A specially designed Rycote mounting adapter bar keeps the microphones’ capsules spaced 17cm apart, and at an angle of 110 degrees to each other; and the Lyre® suspension and shared windshield combine to provide a solution that is extremely resistant to wind noise and unwanted vibrations such as cableborne and handling noise.

Mono Extended Ballgag Windshield Rating: MAX Mono Extended Ball Gags offer a unique and highly effective solution for compact condenser microphones requiring wind protection and maximum shock isolation. It completely surrounds the compact microphone, sliding onto the XBG Suspension to provide up to 25dB of wind noise attenuation. The wind attenuation performance is equivalent to a Rycote® full sized Windshield yet in a much smaller and lighter package – only 170mm x 105mm including end caps. High quality synthetic fur-cover for XBG Windshields providing the highest possible protection against extreme wind-noise. When using a Windjammer® fitted over a Windshield up to 35 dB of windnoise attenuation can be achieved, producing excellent exterior audio recordings.

14


Product Variations We also offer a Mono XBG Kit with a Suspension setup for an “M/S” (Mid-Side) stereo arrangement with two microphones. We only recommend this for applications where having the smallest size windshield is priority-one. This M/S setup is less effective in windshielding and isolation for M/S compared to our Stereo Extended Ball Gag Mono Extended Ballgag (XBG)

Baby Ball Gag Windshield Rating: MAX Designed to slip directly onto the body of a microphone, Baby Ball Gags (BBG) use basket windshield techniques to give much better wind-noise performance and acoustic transparency than a foamstyle windshield. Windjammer速 covers are also available to fit the BBGs for maximum wind protection. The mics can then be shockmounted with a Lyre速 suspension, making them suitable for lowprofile boom applications as well as for hand-held operations and interviews. The Ball Gag consists of two halves that can be separated to fit microphones with a ball-head or tapered body (max head diameter: 60mm; max body diameter: 25mm) and are also widely used with ORTF or NOS microphone pairs.

Softie® Kit Windshield Rating: MEDIUM Shock Rating: HIGH Including a Softie® Windshield, Lyre® shock-mount, Pistol-Grip handle and 40cm Mogami cable, the Softie® Kit provides a simple, robust and cost-effective windshielding and shock-mounting solution for the tough environment of modern day ENG and location recording.

The Softie® Windshield is a slip-on, cavity foam windshield with integral fur cover. Designed to offer up to 40dB (100Hz)* wind-noise attenuation with very little high-frequency loss, the Softie has now become a world-wide standard in the broadcast industry. The Softie® Lyre® Mount is a complete shock-mount using the patented Lyre® system to provide isolation against handling and cable-borne noises. The holding clip accepts microphones from 19 to 25mm diameter and features a moulded-in soft-feel grip to prevent the microphone from slipping or twisting. The Pistol-Grip can also be fitted on a boom-pole thanks to an integrated 3/8” thread adaptor. 20


Product Variations To work effectively, a slip-on windshield must cover all the ports of the mic. Please choose the windshield size accordingly (a 12cm slip-on windshield being suitable for a shotgun mic with slots no further than 12cm from the front of the mic). The diameter of the microphone is also key, as the fit must be tight to achieve a good seal. Softie® windshields come in two diameter fittings, Standard (19-22 mm) and Large (24-25 mm).

Mic Flag Rycote’s Mic Flags are made from durable shatterproof moulded plastic and avoid the use of perishable foam inserts to make the flags fit the microphone. Instead, an array of internally fitted hardwearing red and black rubber ‘vanes’ secures the flag around the microphone, allowing Rycote’s Mic Flags to be used with any microphones ranging from 19 to 38mm in diameter. Lightweight and extremely hard-wearing, Rycote’s Mic Flags provide a large printable area for sponsors’ logos. Three- and foursided flags are available, in either black or white; the square type offers a printable logo area 57mm wide by 48mm high on each of its four sides, while the printable area of the three sides on the triangular flag measure 89.5mm wide by 48mm. With all of the black and red ‘vanes’ fitted, the Rycote mic flag will securely hold mics from 19 to 32mm wide

To fit the flags to mics of up to 38mm in diameter, users simply remove the lid of the mic flag and slide out the black vanes, creating a looser fit which allows the broader mics to slide onto the flag.

InVision® Universal Studio Mount Shock Rating: MAX The InVision® Studio, or Universal Studio Mount (USM), is the latest addition to the Rycote InVision® range of microphone shockmounts, and is designed to accommodate any large-diaphragm side-address microphone from 18 to 55 mm in diameter. Using the patented Lyre® technology, the USM can offer up to 12dB better attenuation of unwanted vibrations – that’s four times in terms of sound pressure level – compared to many conventional “cat’s cradle” elasticated microphone mounts. Stand and cable-borne noise just disappears. Made of Hytrel, the Lyre® are virtually indestructible; and as the USM uses no elastics, it will never sag or need re-threading.

InVision® Studio Kit Pop attenuation: HIGH

Shock Rating: MAX

The InVision® Studio Kit is a complete suspension and pop filter system, which combines the Universal Studio Mount (USM) with a new Universal Pop Filter to make a complete vocal microphone suspension and pop filter system that will accommodate virtually any microphone. The Pop Filter is designed to lock tightly on the USM’s outer support ring, where it can be left while mics are quickly and easily swapped in the USM. Rycote’s Studio Kit is fast and easy to use, and has also proved harder-wearing, more vibration-resistant and better at protecting your mic from vocal pops and thumps without high-frequency loss, than any traditional elasticated microphone suspensions.

If you record vocals, you owe it to yourself to try one!

InVision® Stereo Pair Kit Windshield Rating:N/A The InVision® Stereo Pair Kit comprises two of Rycote’s patented vibration-reducing Lyre® suspensions mounted on a rigid, slotted stereo bar. The dual InVision INV-7 HG MkIII Lyre® webs used in the Stereo Pair Kit can accommodate larger shotgun mics from 19 to 25mm in diameter, and up to 300mm long. The spacing between the two webs, and thus between the two mounted microphones, is quickly and simply adjustable from 40 to 200mm on the slotted bar by loosening a brass wheel under each Lyre and moving it laterally as required. A star-shaped knob underneath each Lyre® also allows each mic to be rotated and/or inclined, and then secured once optimal stereo imaging has been achieved. The complete kit may be fitted to mic stands with 3/8-inch or 5/8inch threads (adaptors for both types are included),

The suspension is combined with Rycote’s InVision® Pop Filter, allowing the mic to be used for voiceover or dialogue replacement work in studio. The InVision® Pop Filter, launched in 2011, features a carefully designed custom mesh which attenuates low-frequency pops and thumps by up to 20dB without causing the high-frequency loss associated with cheaper nylon pop screens. The foam mesh filter may also be removed for cleaning or replacement. The complete InVision® INV-7 Pop Filter Kit may be fitted to mic stands with 3/8-inch or 5/8-inch threads (adaptors for both types are included in the kit)

It is sold separately, or together with a suitable Rycote InVision® INV-7 HG MkIII Lyre® mount if required. This optional mount holds microphones from 19 to 25mm in diameter, and will securely hold microphones of up to 250mm in length when mounted in the Table Stand. As always, Rycote’s patented Lyre® web decouples a mounted microphone extremely efficiently from the Table Stand, resulting in the minimum of vibrations (and thus unwanted noise) being passed to the mic capsule.

The new Softie® Lyre® Mount with Microphone Holder Replacement (MHR) replaces built-in or accessory camera mounts or clamps, and is supplied with three sets of metric screws (20mm-long M2.5, M3 and M4 types), allowing the mount to be connected directly to many common camcorders, such as the Panasonic DVX-series, Sony NXCAM, DSR, HVR, PMW and HDRseries, and many Canon X-series models. The mic clip based on Rycote’s established and patented Lyre® technology is designed to hold shotgun microphones from 19 to 25mm in diameter, included the flat-barrelled Sennheiser MKH range.

Cable with Tac!T Filter Windshield Rating:N/A The Rycote Tac!T filter is an in-line, active “third-order” (18dB/ octave) filter with a “knee” at approximately 60Hz. This enables it to pass, unaffected, virtually all of the desired audio, while massively reducing wind and handling noise, and floor transmitted vibrations. The energy in these extreme low frequency and infrasonic sounds can be very high, and if not attenuated, would otherwise cause overloads and disturbances across the entire audio spectrum. The Tac!T filter draws its power from the P48 phantom supply while also passing power on to the microphone. It is electronically symmetrical and does not disturb the intrinsic balance of the microphone circuit, nor does it introduce any signal loss for normal programme frequencies. A key feature of the Tac!T filter is that it fits entirely within the body of a Neutrik XX-series XLR connector. It is not switchable, and the electronically buffered circuitry ensures that its performance is consistent for almost all phantom-powered microphones and preamplifiers in general use.

Micro Windjammer® Windshield Rating: MEDIUM Even the smallest compact cameras allow you to shoot high-quality video these days — but if you’ve ever tried filming outdoors on a blustery day, you’ll know that the wind can wreck your perfectly composed soundtrack in a matter of seconds. Our new Micro Windjammer® provide easy-to-fit, all-in-one wind protection for your camera’s built-in microphone, giving you greatsounding audio whatever the weather! Rycote’s Micro Windjammer® come in individual packs, which contain 30 stickies and 6 grey fur discs, and are also compatible with the Iphone, Ipad, and most of mobile phone devices.

Lavalier and Ristretto Windjammer® Windshield Rating: HIGH Designed for use with Lavalier microphones worn on the outside of clothing, the Lavalier Windjammer® (or Furry) is the most heavyduty of Rycote’s windshields for personal microphones. In recognition of the fact that most broadcasters today prefer their microphones to remain as unobtrusive as possible, a reengineered version of the Windjammer® has now been added to Rycote’s product line which is more discreet on camera. The fur on the new Ristretto, as it is known, is considerably shorter than that on Rycote’s existing Lavalier Windjammer®. Like the existing Rycote® Lavalier Windjammer®, the Ristretto is secured to its microphone by a foam connector, but a rubber ring has now been added to both products for better grip and retention. Suitable for use in windy outdoor interview conditions, the Lavalier Windjammer® Range greatly reduces microphone noise and clothes rustle, while also providing up to 15dB windnoise attenuation.
