Rycote recently announced the release of Portable Recorder Audio Kit, which includes a complete solution for reducing wind and handling noise on portable recorders.
A combined Windshield and Suspension solution, the kit contains everything needed to protect a handheld digital recorder from outdoor wind noise, and also to isolate it from unwanted vibrations, whether from handling or stand-borne noise. It is aimed at journalists, film-makers, or anyone using a handheld digital recorder to make professional-quality audio recordings outdoors. It can be used location soundtracks or outside broadcast, or for simple audio podcasts or outdoor radio reporting.
Featuring the new 1/4″ to 3/8″ Swivel Adaptor, the suspension fits any portable recorder with a 1/4″ female thread. The suspension can then be mounted on a 3/8″ male thread, mic stand or boom pole, or be attached to a camera hot shoe. The 180° swivel allows for easy orientation of the recorder so it can point in the exact direction of the speaker.
I think it’s something that many of us have been waiting for, plus it seems to work really good. Check out some reviews and demonstrations below.
