GKKmon was also the first to know about this plosive and sibilant sound since YouTube started,
People who do not have prior knowledge of microphones usually go through this phenomenon after recording the first low-cost microphones that are easily accessible from nearby. When you listen to them, the sound quality is very poor, so 'Oh, Mike is cheap.' It 's easy to go, but it' s not really.
It does not mean that a low-cost microphone or a high-end microphone is the same, and a low-cost microphone can record only a plosive sound, and a high-priced microphone can record a low quality sound if it does not catch a plosive sound.
A sure way to prevent plosives,
However, the method of catching the noise of this plosive sound is much simpler than I thought. As you can see from the previous dictionary meaning, it is a phenomenon that occurs when a momentary strong wind reaches the microphone, so if you stop the instantaneous strong wind, you can catch it very easily.
A typical way to block the wind is, first, a pop filter, which is a round windshield in front of the microphone when singers record or play. It is the most effective and professional equipment, and it is also the most expensive of the examples. It has an additional effect in front of the microphone, which acts as a windscreen. It also prevents foreign matter as well as wind from reaching expensive sensitive microphones.
The second one is Sponge foam. It is a black sponge on a mini-stand type gooseneck microphone that you can see on internet broadcasts or on YouTube. It is also the principle that this sponge blocks plosives and foreign matter.
The third is a microphone cover. This is a disposable hygienic microphone cover that is placed on a coin changer when you go to a coin karaoke room. As you can see from the name, it is a big guy to play the role of hygiene, but this also has the effect of preventing plosive sounds.
And the hairy microphone that you can see when you are interviewing outside is somewhere between the sponge foam and the microphone cover, but the principle and role are the same.
You can create a simple filter directly.
Because the principle and purpose of this filter is simple, you can use it without purchasing it (it will surely be less quality than professional equipment), but it is so simple that you do not have to search it separately.
The most popular and well-known method is to use stockings. You can get a frame to make a round pop filter or hang on a stocking. Once again, you do not have to search for a way to make it right, you just have to make a plate with a stocking and place it between your microphone and your mouth.
It does not have to be stocking. Anything is possible if the sound passes moderately and the momentary strong wind blocks it. Even if we put the mask that we usually carry around properly, like a microphone cover, it works. 'If you put anything like this, can not the sound be recorded properly?' I can think of it as well.
Second method, Avoid right angle mute (Record)
There is one other very simple way to catch a plosive sound, in addition to putting something like this in the filter.
Normally, the microphone (especially the gooseneck mic mentioned above) has a hole in the front for recording the sound, which is recorded here. So if you goose neck, you can just twist the microphone neck slightly. If you use condenser type or karaoke microphone, if you record it by sliding it to the side, it will reduce the plosive sound and prevent the foreign material by a little less than the above mentioned filters because the wind does not enter the front.
However, this method does not record the sound at right angles unlike using the filter, so the sound may become smaller or the sound quality may deteriorate in some cases.
