I'm recording a text book in garageband with apogee duet, macbookpro and rhode 2NA. (1 chapter per new file, mono, realtrack). Problem: I have a lot of breath and mouth sounds and clicks in between sentences, which are sometimes difficult to edit - and very time-consuming. I don't know if I should use a gate when recording, and if so, how much? I haven't used a gate for the first few chapters, so if I did apply it now, would there be a noticeable difference between those first non-gated and any later gated chapters? I have a pop filter. I've tried repositioning the microphone, but when I move it further away, I lose quality/resonance. I don't want to do any eq or mastering, nor do I want to manipulate the file too much at the recording stage. Any feedback is much appreciated.
