More about Rycote
For more than forty years, Rycote has specialised to develop and make the industry standard shock & wind protection for the extremes of field production sound.
When a windnoise reduction device is fitted, its effect on the audio response is a constant factor – if it causes some loss of HF it will do it at all times. However the amount it reduces windnoise by depends on how hard the wind is blowing. If there is a flat calm it will have no beneficial effect at all and the sole result will be a degradation of the audio performance of the microphone. However, in a strong gale a small deviation from a perfect flat response may be a minor compromise to make for a recording with >30dB reduction in windnoise. Rycote strongly recommends fitting the minimum shielding necessary at any time.
