Wind Interference

Ok so I've ran into this problem ever time I've made a movie. I will eventually run into working on a day where the wind sucks and totally distorts the audio. The bad thing is it is present all over the audio. I always have to cut a ton of low end and doctor the rest so at least some is audible. Then I use a reverb to at least widen the little audio I still have. It sounds better but does anyone know a better way to correct this?

Try putting a sock over your microphone. Make sure you haven't been wearing it otherwise a singer might think that your microphone stinks.

That's why they call it a wind sock. That's what the original was. A dead cat or a fox may also be used. Although I recommend foam or one of those very fuzzy fake for types.

Omni directional microphones don't suffer from as much wind noise out of doors.
