I'm reading my book for Amazon and need a pop filter. I looked in the manual and found it for vinyl records but I don't think it's the same. Any advice?
Appreciate your help.

Thanks
Janet

Your best bet would be not to record the bad stuff. But, your subject
line is ambiguous: Do you want to avoid sibilants ('S') or plosives
('Pop')?

If the former, you might be able to improve your recording with a
notch filter or some judicious eq in the vicinity of 8 kHz. Or you
could use a de-esser plugin. Or watch your fricative consonants. Wink It
could also be that your mic is emphasizing frequencies to provide
"presence".

If it's the latter, use a pop filter halfway between you and your mic.
You can improvise one with an embroidery hoop or wire clothes hanger
covered with nylon stockings stretched over it. Experiment with
different thicknesses of stocking until you're satisfied with the
result. Or you could spend money on essentially the same thing from
any of a number of manufacturers.

Experimenting with mic placement might also provide some relief.
Recording is science and art.

You don't really notice how much of this
stuff has sharp edges until it gets dark.

Pop shields are very cheap, check this page.

Sibilance control is usually done in hard or software and could cost quite a lot, particularly in hardware (de-esser), have a look at this page.

Good luck.
