Tips to Avoid Silent Pauses When Recording

If you want to make your videos without any unappealing silent pauses, you must make sure that minor noises are eliminated. Later, the silent parts can be deleted through silence detection.

Here are some tips to ultimately remove silence from MP3.

#1. Ensure a quiet recording environment

The best way to remove silence is by choosing a quiet recording area. An enclosed area serves as a great place to record without any air or other unwanted audio. This way, you can later use the silence detection feature of an editor to remove silence and obtain a seamless recording.

#2. Use a Pop Filter to soften the plosives

In order to completely remove silence from your videos, you must minimize the noise that naturally emits while a person is speaking or singing. Using a pop filter, a physical barrier that eliminates the air that emits from plosives can help you remove silence. This filter serves to reduce or remove the air rush hence making it possible to remove the silent parts without any issue later.

#3. Select a tight-sound microphone

The kind of microphone significantly affects the recording quality. The use of a cardioid microphone can help you remove silence. It is also known as a unidirectional microphone that only captures the sound coming from a single source and hence naturally eliminates the surrounding noises. The area captured by a unidirectional microphone is limited, so it doesn't record any unwanted or far-away noises.

#4. Setup a Microphone Noise Gate/Threshold

A noise gate software eliminates all sounds below a specific threshold value. For that, you must first download software like NoiseGator that removes background noise by closing a virtual gate when someone isn't speaking. Then, download the Virtual Audio Cable from VB audio site. Restart your computer and open sound settings and NoiseGator. Adjust the audio settings on NoiseGator. Then, select your microphone as the input source and the Output cable as an output source. Now, all the audio from your microphone will pass through the noise gate, and background noises will be eliminated.

#5. Get proper breathing techniques for recording

Breathing sounds can ruin a recording. You must train yourself to breathe through the nose or very slowly and deeply through the mouth so that you can later remove silence from MP3 by using the silence detection tool. You can also practice recording in ways that sync with your breathing pattern.

Summing up

Finally, making professional-grade videos has been rendered easy. Since audio affects any recording's overall quality, it is crucial and must be edited to perfection. All this has been made possible with the silence detection feature available on Filmora. Now, you can create flawless videos and record high-quality audios by making precise adjustments with this silence detection tool.

By adjusting the settings, even the smallest duration of silence can be easily deleted-with a single tap. So, hop on to Filmora to automatically remove silence. Enhance your recordings by using the silence detection feature to create exceptional videos with ease.
