I have no formal training with voiceovers, so every new discovery is a magical moment. Today I learned of the FFT filter in Audition called "Kill the Mic Rumble." It creates a sharp FFT that goes from 0 dB to - infinity dB between 100 and 80 Hz and stays dead throughout the lows. Any time a plosive escapes through your pop filter, you just need to highlight the offending word and throw on this filter and it completely neutralizes the pop, without changing the quality of voice or sound. I had a mid length gig (12 minutes finished) and QC told me there were still some plosives hidden around. Ran the filter on the whole file and it eliminated everything, and the revised file was accepted immediately.
If you use Audition and didn't know about this tool, I hope it can help with little mistakes that inevitably pop up. If you did know about this tool, I'd love to hear about if you use it, as well as other light effects that can help fix broken audio.
