COMBATTING "MOUTH NOISE"
Here's my problem: Not all the time, but too often, there's a click or a smack ( I've heard it referred to as a glottal shock) in the silence
between one word and the next. I have tried taking a sip of water
just before opening the mike. It doesn't always work. One listener
complained to my PD about it via email. She said it sounded like dry
mouth and she wishes I would just chew gum or something. What would
Here's the secret that voiceover people use:
Take a bite of an apple before opening the mike. The apple counteracts the saliva that contributes to "mouth noise."
A sip of apple juice should do the trick, too (instead of a sip of water).
Hope this helps!
