    Ways to reduce handling noise


    I've been using Rycote Invision INV-7-HG-Mark III shockmount with softgrip handlebar and before that I tried Rode Blimp. Both solutions picked up my handling noise pretty much. Type of my mic (AT BP4025) is also contributing to this situation. I had less issues with Rode VideoMic Pro and Rode NTG4+

    I slightly hear my bones clinking in lows, no matter how steady I try to hold it. My shoulder, elbow or hand bones make a sound eventually.

    So far I tried the handling the softgrip with padded gloves as well as switching the low-frequency roll-off on. These have mitigated the issue to a point. What else do you suggest?

    I'm using a mic which is reasonably good at resisting this handling noise but I would like to know if there are any methods, tools or plugins

    It might not apply to your mic setup, but I have found handling noise sometimes transmitted up the mic cable bypassing the mount.

    Changed to a more flexible cable, loosely stressed and well supported by light foam guides strategically placed on boom to dampen vibrations.

    use a microphone stand, that's the better solution to avoid hand noises.
