High Screechy 'S' Sounds Help Please

Got me the Audacity 2.0 here

I am very very new to audio manipulation. I am trying to create some videos using one of them headphone mics. In the video, when I talk, I get a screechy S sound when I say words like ‘simple’ or 'sensible etc. It sounds like I have a front tooth missing and I am kind of whistling my ‘S’ sounds. This makes viewing my videos painful to people with headphones.

Is there a way for me to fix this using Audacity? I figured out how to import the sound into the program and I tried the normalize effect. I dont know how to setup the noise removal effect because its a part of my voice and I dont want to remove the S sounds but reduce their pitch.


It’s sibilance ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sibilant ) .

Try and move the mic boom further from your mouth.

After recording, use a de-esser plug-in like the Spitfish VST plug-in ( http://www.digitalfishphones.com/binaries/the_fish_fillets_v1_1.zip ).

See this page for how to add VST plug-ins to Audacity:
