LOL!

He means one of those foam pop-suppressors or pop-filters - usually
like a little fuzzy-looking spheroid that fits over the business end of the mic... helps prevent the plosives, the 'p' sounds from making loud pops if the singer's mouth is close to the mic. Most often seen on cardioid dynamic mics for stage use, like the famous Shure SM58 , which has one built in - but you can fit them to almost any stick-type mic, condenser mics included. You'll often find them supplied as accessories with condenser podium mics intended for spoken voice applications, e.g. in a church pulpit.

Is this some sort of clothing?

Couple of things come to mind: first, blankets spread around the room sometimes help kills sound if your in a room that echoes a little bit. Second, I would try lowering the amp on it and bring the vocals a little closer to the mic. Remember to have a poper on when you do this!

Hope it helps,

Josh

Hi,

This isn't really an audacity question but I'm sure someone can help me -- I bought a new microphone for vocals which is so much better than my old one -- the problem is it picks up EVERYTHING in the room, even my fingers pushing down the keys of my keyboard! What can I do? Is this a room problem?

Thanks, Kathy
