Using the Procaster

  • The Procaster is a broadcast-grade end-address microphone, and for optimum results you should address the microphone at a distance of no more than 5cm (2”).
  • The stand mount includes a thread adaptor allowing connection to either 3/8” or 5/8” stand threads.
    Alternatively the PSM1 shock mount and PSA1 studio boom arm is optionally available to isolate the microphone from external vibrations.
  •  An absorbent crystal pack is supplied with the Procaster. This should stay in the zip pouch at the head of the
    microphone when not in use to prevent any build up of moisture. When the crystals turn pink, they can be
    dried out in an oven at 100 – 150 degrees celsius for approximately ten minutes. Once they turn blue they can be reused.
