1) I’ve recently learned a couple of great tricks to kill those nasty “S’s” n “T’s”! If you’re poor like me and can’t afford to sound-proof and dampen a room, here’s a quick solution to kill that open room drywall sound! Place a boom stand behind a straight stand, throw a blanket over it, get under and sing your heart out!

2) I’ve also recently discovered that simply placing your thumb over the diaphragm kills a lot of sibilance as well! But a tongue depressor works too…..  :)

Hello T,

Cool, and a well filled clothing closet works well too…  Another tip although not for simbilance, here’s a nifty cheap reverb, set your recorder up in an all tile bathroom and sing away, of course most multi tracks have built in reverb, but I have used my single track one take WMA voice recorder like this and get a mild reverb effect.  Best wishes,

Speak soon,

I had no idea that sibilance was made worse by an undampened room. Thanks for the tip, Tony.

I was truly amazed when I put that blanket over my head lol, my room is a lot brighter than I thought. The tongue depressor REALLY cuts those S’s though! :)
