My P's and B's sound too sharp. Is there a spoffle around?
Noun: Slang term for a pop shield, put on the microphone to prevent plosive consonants from registering too forcefully during studio recording of voice overs.
"Can we put a spoffle on the mike because I'm getting too much pop o the Ps."
Slang term for pop guard or pop cover: the foam cover put on microphones to prevent "popping" that results from loud consonants. Originated by Hugh Laurie during a BBC radio interview.
This spoffle helps cut down the amount of editing I have to do later around those Ps and Ts.
