    Royer Labs has introduced the Sling-Shock microphone shock mount, designed to provide excellent isolation between a microphone and mic stand from a maintenance-free design.

Figure 1 (click to enlarge) Such a truly Quadraphonic device, developed by engineer Carl Countryman and producer Brad Miller, is in external appearance… View this story
