annoying sound recording

Recommended Posts

I am trying to record a narrative for my video short. I'm using Adobe Sound Booth with a headphone set and microphone. On saying certain sounds such as B or P, I get, what I can only describe as over amplification of the syllable, which is unacceptable. I have tried various distances from the mic but there comes a point where the mic will not pick up the sound Any ideas as to how I can overcome this?

For $10 or 15 dollars go to your local music shop like Guitar Center and buy a Pop Screen. This is attached between your microphone and yourself and will significantly help in providing pop noise protection and as an effective reducer of sibilance in speech.

John,

Just noticed that you are from the UK. There is a company there called Editors Keys that makes a double pop screen that works beautifully. Here's an old review I wrote on a few of their products.

Or you can just place your microphone 45 degrees off to the side so that it still picks up the sound but doesn't receive the blast of air on those plosives. This is what Jay Rose recommends in this book.

Alternatively, in a jam, use the sheer lining from stocking/leggings/tights. Works just as well.
