Suspension Medium ORTF is suitable for compact condenser mics in ORTF Stereo configuration in an AE Stereo Windshield such as the Schoeps CCM series or the Sennheiser MKH 8000 series. ORTF stereo recording was pioneered by the engineers at the French state broadcaster in the 1960s, and is defined as using a stereo pair of microphones with the capsules spaced 17cm apart, and at an angle of 110 degrees to each other. A specially designed Rycote mounting adapter bar keeps the microphones at the correct spacing and angle for ORTF recording, and the Lyre suspension provide a solution that is extremely resistant to unwanted vibrations such as cable-borne and handling noise.
Small Modular suspensions are suitable for shotgun microphones from approximately 120mm to 210mm in length, and diameters ranging from 19-25mm, 30mm or Sennheiser MKH microphones. Medium Modular suspensions are suitable for shotgun microphones from approximately 210mm to 400mm in length, and diameters ranging from 19-25mm, 30mm or Sennheiser MKH microphones. Large Modular suspensions are suitable for heavier shotgun microphones from approximately 400mm up to 540mm in length, and diameters ranging from 19-25mm, 30mm or Sennheiser MKH microphones.
- Patented Lyre suspensions provide complete isolation against handling noise whilst safely gripping the microphone
- The new small and medium modular bars are now more durable and less prone to wear and tear
- Comfortable pistol-grip handles allow handheld use, but also have a 3/8" boom adaptor in the base for quick transfer boom operation
