Plosives (P Poppin)

I am having a problem with a recording of mine because of the pops that are caused by the P's in the lyrics. I lack the money to get a screen, so at the moment i am looking for a VST plugin of some sort that can help me reduce the problem. Any suggestions? Or possible just another way to do it?

Why dont you just use some pantyhose or something?

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!

what he said.

Take something round, the harder/firmer the better.
and hollow, perhaps bend a wire hanger or use the lid to a coffee jar, sugar jar, etc (cut a hole in the middle)
and put panty hose over it.

socks also work, but let less through then panty hose will.
so panty hose is ideal.

all you want to do it catch the air before it hits the microphone,
you want to hear the sound coming from the mouth, not the air.

good luck.

You can get a pretty decent screen for $20-25. I use one in that price range and it works perfect. Any plugins that reduce "P"s or "S"s can only do so much and prevention is the best method.
