Aside from the quality of your video clips, audio quality can also make or break your video project whether it’s in your background music, dialog or narration. There’s a lot of factors to consider for an overall better quality audio recordings, today we’ll discuss on how to improve your audio recordings using a DIY pop filter for your microphone.
A pop filter or pop shield is a noise protection filter for microphones, typically used in a recording studio. It serves to reduce or eliminate ‘popping’ sounds caused by the mechanical impact of fast moving air on the microphone during recorded speech and singing.
It basically reduces the pressure of the air coming from your mouth to the microphone allowing for a much more clearer audio.
Other use of a Pop Filter?
A pop filter can also protect your microphone from unintentional spitting when you speak or sing through the microphone.
Why not just buy a Pop Filter?
You can argue that buying a pop filter is much easier than building it yourself and it’s actually not that expensive. The thing is, when you buy a pop up filter, when it becomes damaged or becomes dirty in someway, you can’t just replace the mesh part of it but when you built it yourself, you can just replace the panty hose without additional costs. You can also customize it on how it looks like.
