Tips for the Best Setup
When using a rectangular microphone, place the microphone into the mounting clip with the long side vertical and push it down until it rests against the two small bumps on the inside of the inner arms. When using a rectangular microphone, there is usually a small hole in one of the larger faces of the microphone. The center of the pickup pattern will be located at that small hole. Adjust the microphone so this small hole is in line with the tips of the two support rods.
When using a cylindrical microphone, the center of the pickup pattern is slightly behind the end face. Adjust the microphone so that the end face is just beyond the end of the two support arms. (1 mm, or 1/16″, is adequate.)
If a windscreen is being used on the lavaliere microphone, remove the windscreen the first time you adjust the microphone's position in the Sound Shark. Note the position of the microphone for future installations. Mount the windscreen to the microphone and locate the microphone at its proper location.
We recommend using some type of wind protection (windscreen, wind muff, windshield, etc.) on your lavaliere microphone when not using the Sound Shark Wind Cover. However, you can use both the wind protection on your lavaliere and the Sound Shark Wind Cover with no noticeable change in audio quality.
