Noise gate plug-in

I’m trying to apply the noise gate plug-in to a vocal track in order to eliminate the breathing sounds.
I’ve got it set for the noise gate’s lead vocal preset.
The problem is that the noise gate is also eliminating a number of the softer words/notes being sung. I’ve tried increasing/decreasing the noise gate’s threshold setting, but since the softer words/notes are apparently about as loud as the breathing sounds, it really hasn’t worked to fix the problem.
Anyone have any suggestions?

A noise gate is not a good solution to that problem.

You would be better to edit by hand, you could speed up the initial cutting by using detect silence, then trim by hand to perfection!


then trim by hand to perfection!
