The Rycote 080211 ORTF Windshield Kit consists of an ORTF Modular Suspension (040249), a Stereo AE Windshield (OD 145 mm x Overall length 350 mm), a Stereo AE Windjammer, and an MZL Stereo Connbox.
The ORTF stereo recording is defined as using a stereo pair of microphones with the capsules spaced 6.7” (17cm) apart, and at an angle of 110° to each other. The ORTF windshield kit is designed for matched pairs of Sennheiser MKH 8000 microphones, and consists of a Lyre suspension, a cable clamp, a 145mm Stereo Windshield, and a Windjammer that is large enough to comfortably accommodate the microphones.
A specially designed Rycote mounting adapter bar keeps the microphones at the correct spacing and angle for ORTF recording, and the Lyre suspension and shared windshield combine to provide a solution that is resistant to wind noise and unwanted vibrations such as cable-borne and handling noise. Additionally, the included Rycote Connbox offers protection against cable-borne noise.
- Lyre suspensions provide complete isolation against handling noise whilst safely gripping the microphone
- The Connbox version isolates and minimizes handling and cable-borne noise
