Surprised with all the years this list has been around that I couldn’t find in my searches any discussions on ways to fixing
Voice Over tracks with plosives (P, B, T) that were recorded already on a live interview from a mic connected to a video camera at a local live show.
all the web results are using a high pass filter from 80 - 300 hz…
The way I was taught to do this was to make a 2nd track and cut and bring the offending plosive segment down to that 2nd track and treat only that track with the high pass filter (rolling everything off lower than 80hz and if that doesn’t work then trying to raise the freq til it does up to as high as 300 hz to get rid of the percussive blast.
However, I’m trying to do that with this one track and using the builtin channel eq of C8.0.30
It’s not working on most of them, only the least of the offenders.
Has anyone figured out any other solutions for this problem?
note: the track is 1/2 hr straight talking from start to finish (edited down from 1 hr), so taking everysingle wave and using a pencil will be my last resort as that is very slooooo to do with so many. But will if no alternative is found. haha
I did see Greg Ono do a demonstration of C8 when it first came out and he was using some kind of side chain and envelope plugin (all stock plugins with Cubase 8) to alter the attack of individual drums to brighten them up.
I was wondering if the reverse could be used to soften an attack, but that was a while ago and I forgot how he did that whole setup and have yet to learn how to actually use sidechaing.
Anyone care to chime in and help me out on this dilemna?
It would be much appreciated. Need to turn this around after a couple weeks of editing the overall project and this is the last remaining problem to solve.
