Are you podcasting? Are you being a little rough on your Ps and Ts? Blog Relations has tips and techniques to help you deal with the explosive sounds your words may smack the microphone with.
Plosives are the bane of podcasters. They are the breathy sounds that sneak into the microphone, however hard you try to keep them out. “Ps’ are apt to explode all over the place. I often hear them popping out of the most experienced podcasters’ microphones.
As always, it’s best to avoid them in the first place. Haul a pop guard over your microphone, or even use a silk pop screen in front of a condenser mic. Point the microphone at your chin, rather than directly at the mouth. Try to hold in and soften those p’s with your lips.
But despite your best efforts, some plosives are bound to find their way onto the track. But don’t despair. In many cases, it’s still possible to edit them out.
If you are adding podcasts to your blogs, just try saying “adding podcasts to your blogs” without popping and spitting into your digital recordings. If you are, then check out this helpful article on those plosives to keep the noise down.
