Following the success of the PIANO, the PIANISSIMO is mainly designed for the new generation of short shotgun microphones and coincident stereo, surround-sound combinations and many other mics shorter than 8 in (21 cm).
As with all other Cinela windshields since 2007, Pianissimo integrates a unique full-cage isolation to prevent vibrations and handling noise by an additional ~15 db. This Cinela invention, the well-known “floating basket” principle, is achieved by four flexible “U” isolators installed around the cage. A rubber bellows at the bottom of the cage insures flexibility and keeps wind out.
Remote Audio’s HN 7506 High Noise headsets have been a big hit for professionals who want to protect their ears while monitoring the quality of their recordings. Heavy duty yet surprisingly comfortable, these headsets seal off outside ambience by as much as 45dB, and they’re designed to match the sound quality of the industry standard Sony MDR-7506.
The new Tig Q28 timecode generator is just 2.8 cubic inches, which is about a third the size of the original Tig. Loaded with features, its tiny size fits even the smallest cameras and rigs. The variable timecode output level and “flow through audio design” adds practicality for cameras and recorders that are not designed to receive timecode.
