The Stereo Cyclone uses custom mounts and cable rigging to open up all the benefits of the Cyclone System to stereo mic users. These kits are designed for shotgun mics mounted in parallel, including the Schoeps MiniCMIT, Sennheiser MKH 8060 and 416, Sanken CS-1, and DPA 4017C.
The Cyclone has been designed with ease of set-up and use as a priority for the location sound professional. The windshield basket design uses a magnetic Z-Locking system that can be opened and closed in the blink of an eye – using just one hand. Reassembly is automatic as components magnetically snap into perfect alignment.
With an aerodynamically efficient asymmetric shape, it is covered with Rycote's new-age 3D-Tex® material. This provides enormous benefits in terms of surface turbulence and acoustic impedance resulting in such a level of wind noise reduction that a fur cover is unnecessary. An optional Windjammer allows for recording in extreme “weather warning” conditions.
Inside the Cyclone, Rycote uses a system similar to the Lyre® microphone suspension system to reduce the bulk of shock and handling noise. The Cyclone takes the Lyre principle and incorporates it in a Floating Basket Suspension. This innovative technique provides vibration isolation between basket and pole, thus attenuating handling noise at source.
