It can be used for DSLR and camcorders and is suitable for recording music and atmospheric ambience, which is essential in building a realistic audio scene.
The microphone retains all of the switch locations and other features as the previous model and features a high-pass filter switch at 75 Hz for minimizing low-frequency noise, and a -10 dB pad for maximizing headroom on behalf of capturing loud signals without distortion. It allows you to capture broadcast recording quality with the on-camera microphone. In addition, the kits Rode Deadkitten artificial fur windshield is designed to minimizes wind noise, while also remaining acoustically transparent.
The Stereo VideoMic Pro Rycote from Rode builds on the success of the Stereo VideoMic Pro with a few improved upgrades such as a Rycote Lyre shockmount, higher-sensitivity X/Y capsules, denser foam windscreen, better RF shielding, and a thicker Kevlar braided cable. The microphone retains all of the switch locations and other features as the previous model, for use as an on-camera DSLR and camcorder microphone for video applications.
The integrated Rycote Lyre shockmount system protects against handling noise. The Stereo VideoMic features a high-pass filter switch at 75 Hz for minimizing low-frequency noise, and a -10 dB pad for maximizing headroom on behalf of capturing loud signals without distortion. The +20 dB level-boost switch is specifically designed to provide a higher-quality signal with DSLR cameras. When activated, the camera preamp level is reduced, resulting in a lower noise floor and a much clearer recording.
The Auray Custom Windbuster for Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro (and with Rycote Lyre) provides dual-layered wind protection that is designed to substantially reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high-frequency loss. It has been tailor-made to fit the Rode microphone and can be used over its existing foam windscreen.
Featuring a simulated fur outer layer, the windbuster works in tandem with the acoustic cloth inner lining in the front and sides to protect the microphone from wind. It is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds, and it is most effective in light-to-moderate breeze conditions (4 to 17 mph).
Users can generally expect a 30 to 40 dB reduction in wind noise with modest dampening of high frequencies, and with dual-layered wind protection, the Windbuster helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The Windbuster for Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro offers an extremely effective solution for wind protection.
