Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Taming plosives and sibilance, part of Audio for Film and Video with Pro Tools.
In this movie, let's take a look at two other problems that you're very likely…to run into as you work on audio.…These are called plosives and sibilance.…Plosives happen when syllables like P or B create some wind that actually…strikes the capsule of a microphone, and it causes a lot of low-end to be heard.…Let's take a listen to some plosive audio.…(Woman speaking: The principal ate the potatoes prior to the presentation. The principal ate...)…That's a pretty extreme example where there are four plosives in one sentence.…But sometimes that occurs.…I mean the way to avoid this really is to have a screen called a pop filter in…front of the talent's mouth when they are speaking into a microphone.…
In this case, obviously, there was no pop filter and that wind struck the…capsule and we have these plosive sounds.…So we're left to deal with it in post-production.…There are some methods we can use to deal with these problems.…So let's zoom in on the first plosive here and get into it.…If we zoom in pretty close, this is the first plosive.…

Q: This course was updated on 4/04/12. Can you tell me what changed?
A: This update was initiated when Avid released Pro Tools 10. It explains that this course can be taken with either Pro Tools 9 or 10 (the exercise files are compatible with both), and we also added movies that explore the enhanced clip-based gain and Audio Suite features in Pro Tools 10, both of which are useful when building a soundtrack.
