PIANISSIMO, PIANO, ZEPHYX & ALBERT Windshields

PIANISSIMO, ZEPHYX and ALBERT windshields
were designed in the continuity of OSIX design

Zephyx ovoid cage
Albert windshield mounted with Scheops CCM ORTF pair

The main goal is to optimize the performances on several main points:

  • Wind protection
  • Acoustic transparency
  • Handling noise
  • Ergonomy

ZEPHYX windshield incorporates an exclusive feature of suspension that ensures effective vibration decoupling of the main cage itself. The high wind protection is achieved by natural ovoid shape of large diameter (18 cm), which helps « omnidirectional » aerodynamics and increases the area of protection around the microphone.

ZEPHYX allows adaptation for:

  • « short » mono mikes
  • MS or XY pair
  • Double-MS setup
  • Ambisonic mike

In its basic version, ALBERT consists of two MINIX microphones suspensions for Schoeps CCM or Sennheiser MKH 8000. Each microphone has to be naturally screwed in the connector inserted in the cradle.

The ALBERT's suspension mounting rail allows continuous adjustment of the distance and angle between capsules:

  • AB ORTF pair: 2 x Cardioid, 17 cm, 110°
  • AB omni pair: 2 x Omnidirectional, 20 cm max
  • XY coincident pair: 2 x Cardioid, 0 cm, 90°
  • Special pairs (example: Supercardioid, 20 cm max, 90°)
