    Hi :) !!!

    I don't have an answer to your question. Just wanted to point out you don't have to include the "Hi :) !!!" as the prefix to all the threads you start.

    Windsocks reduce the noise produced by moving air hitting the diaphragm of a microphone. They can be useful anytime you have wind noise in a recording, be it because you are outside or because somebody breaths into a mic.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your message : ) !!!
    Do you think this kind of recorder
    may be very sensitive to wind noise?
    I'll be mostly interviewing people in
    a closed enviroment, rarely walking
    on a noisy or quiet street. The re-
    corder will always be at least four
    inches away from the interviewee's
    mouth, and usually between six and
    ten inches away.

    Thank you again, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    If you are inside than it probably won't be necessary. It could help with combating plosives ("p" and "b" sounds), but I would try it without first. You can always pick one up later.

    This is intended for outside recording, to reduce the low-frequency rumbling caused by wind. I believe a foam cover ships with the product, which can be helpful in reducing plosives if the mic is too close/incorrectly positioned to the speaker.

    For outdoor recording, these mic add-ons make all the difference. To some extent that also applies when running around with a mic indoors - you still have air moving over the microphone. A zeppelin with a fur cover ("dead cat") gives you outstanding sound quality even in very strong wind.
