I record a bunch of guided meditations using Audacity. My mic is the Apogee MiC. I always get a ton of mouth noise. I can use RX 8 to remove most of the mouth clicks, but several always remain. Audacity’s de-click feature hasn’t been helpful.
Post production aside, I’m looking for tips on how to avoid recording it in the first place. I experimented with swishing lemon juice in my mouth today before recording each track (I’ve heard acid can reduce saliva, which may be causing the noise). I don’t think it helped. I notice that I get more mouth noise as the recording session goes on. Which makes me think that maybe I have too little saliva?
Any tips for reducing mouth noise while recording? Thanks!
It should be, considering that the current list price ranges from $129 to $1199. (We do not condone the use of pirate software)
(I have not used RX as it is incompatible with my machine, and I prefer open source software.)
Where possible, please provide solutions using Audacity software (this is the Audacity forum).
When additional software is required (such as plug-ins) free and open source software that is compatible with Audacity is much preferred to commercial products and services.
Thanks! I tried the angles, but it didn’t help. I’m also trying to speak differently, but it’s hard. None of the lemons, apples, etc. have been helpful. I actually went to my local recording studio on Wednesday to troubleshoot with a professional. We tried a bunch of different mics. No easy/obvious solutions. He showed me a bit about how to use RX 8, which I think is my best option. I just crank the sensitivity all the way up, and it miraculously removes most of the clicks. Hurrah!
I have had the same annoying issue also… And what has helped me are sparkling water sodas…
I shop at [Advert removed] and I purchase their [Advert removed] drinks great…
I think the carbonated water tends to break down saliva and perhaps residue left from dairy foods like milk or yogurt or even coffee with creamier. Obviously going without saying a good mouthwash gargle helps also.
If you try this method I’d love to hear from you if it’s worked. or any other tips!
