I get it - most of the folks on this forum are recording music. But I'm recording audiobooks, and deperately need some editing help.
I want to eliminate the mouth pops that occur in the pauses between speaking. Up to now, I've just been manually cutting them out, but there's GOT to be a better way.
I tried messing around with the noise gate that came with my Cubase LE4, but it gates to complete silence, causing the recording to sound choppy, unnatural, and "dead". (If you cut out all the breathing sounds, it sounds very animatronic.)
Is there a way to reduce the volume in the pauses automatically, without eliminating the sound entirely? Like a "gain reducing gate?
