Last night I did live sound for a major awards event. I was working Front of House and there was this woman who came up to give a speech and she leaned into my MK41s at point blank range for the duration of her speech.
I'm now back home at my studio prettying up a replay mix.
Every T, K, CH, SH, B, F, H, basically any consonant which expels air when you say it popped my mics. And you know how a Schoeps sounds when it pops.
Unfortunately, they were so bad they made it into the house so my house ambience mics have the booms, too. I thought of ditching those mics for that person's speech and added a natural reverb plug-in, but I wanted to see if there was anything I can do to it otherwise.
Anyone got an easy way to eliminate these?
I'm going to try the Oxford Suppresser. Already going to roll it off at 100 Hz, possibly higher (luckily it's a female so her voice isn't effected too much).
I'd really like to save the editing time of filtering them out one by one.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
Thanks - Ryan
