    Best I've Found

    Good news...this is by far the best DeBreath available. Bad news...this can be useless depending on the type of breathing involved. First let be point out that the name of this thing is misleading because, while it does "de-breath" (completely remove breathing noise), it can also be easily set to reduce brathing noise should you want breaths left in at a lower volume. I'm a male narrator and this works really well on my narration. My wife also narrates and it doesn't work well at all with her narration. Her breathing is admittedly more pronounced than mine with more treble. I think this confuses this software. I've tried "fooling" this software by EQ-ing her vocal track to make her breaths more managable but I always wind up having to repair chopped off words and partial breaths. I've wasted a lot of valuable editing time trying to make this software work with her breaths and now I don't even bother - I adjust her breaths manually in less time. I love it for my narration - hate it for hers. The Waves support team has been top notch except when I asked them if I could send them a file (my wife's narration) and have them effectively apply this software and send me the settings. They said they have no way of playing her file on their computer. It's a simple WAV file! So, I was not amused by their response that particular time. I've tried several other similar products, but this one does do the best job, and, as with all of Waves products, it is extremely intuitive with almost no learning curve. I use also use Waves NS-1, Vocal Rider, which I highly recommend.
