Audio Podcasting  - 
 
What are proper methods for removing or reducing breath sounds (inhaling)?

I have an ATR2100 mic with a foam windscreen and use Garage Band for editing (moving to Audition soon). I also have an Alesis MultiMix 8 mixer in my main studio, but sometimes record remotely without it. I'm generally a good 12 inches away from the mic and speak off to the side.

I use the noise gate in GB, but don't find it terribly helpful since pushing it high enough cuts off words or makes a crackling sound. There's no smooth transition with it, unless I'm doing it wrong (entirely possible).

I feel like the mic is a good distance away and it's off to the side. It sounds like I need to work on breathing techniques.

I do notice it's worse on videos where I use a teleprompter. I probably don't plan enough breaks to let me catch my breath.

Thanks for all the great input!

Did you miss the live show? That's ok, here's the video replay. We talk about how Facebook is looking to give companies their own internal social networks with FacebookAtWork.

Also, a teen reveals the truth about how they use social networking apps. Are they really leaving Facebook like everyone says?

It wasn't on the agenda, but we couldn't resist talking about how Snapchat wants $750,000 per day to advertise with them!

Join us next week for the live show on Thursday at 10pm EST/ 7pm PST. Learn more at MarketingRecap.com #MRcap

Twitter Offers: Are they too complicated?
Twitter is offering this new ad type starting this Holiday Season.
You won't believe the steps you have to take to accept one of these Twitter offers if you use a debit card. Am I being too picky? What do you think about this new ad feature?
