Rycote Softie Windscreen

Access Privileges: Must have taken Sight and Sound I (FMMC 0105) or Sound Aesthetics and Production (FMMC 0346)


As a smaller alternative to the Windjammer, the Rycote Softie attenuates high wind and atmospheric noises up to 25dB. The Softie is constructed of an acoustic foam base covered by a specially designed synthetic fur fabric together with a separate shockmount with its own bracket and either pistol grip handle or boom adaptor.

With a thick 10mm coat of fur, this microphone wind protector provides a fast, flexible and cost effective solution for ENG on camera microphones. The Softie is compatible with most on-camera microphone sizes.
