Pop Filter [ID:1396] (1/1)

in series: Screencasting.

Pop filters are used in professional audio studios to attenuate plosives and sibilants, as well as avoiding accidental spit ruining your expensive microphone.

But even veteran audio experts create their own home made pop filter.

A pop filter brought to you by an audio hardware company ranges US $30 - $200.

With enough tools (which you can get at a home tool depot ) you can create your own pop filter.

very helpful


A great idea. I didn't consider the sibilance reduction as well. Better than a de-esser!


Thanks. I will made one for me.

thanks a lot for the video -info I've been mixing music for almost 30 years but I never use a microphone, now I want to star making my own songs and don't have any clue about microphones or pop filter or anthom powers or stuff like that, therefore this video its a great help for the newbies around the net, thanks a lot and keep it up guys!!! :)


You're right. Brilliant graphics to demonstrate the difference..

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for gasto
