Your voice will get deeper and more gravelly. Cue George Best on any given morning…. So avoid any diuretics — coffee, caffeine, Coke, dairy, tea, Red Bull and so on — and just drink water. Proof of this is the fact that we always need a wee in the morning. On my long-form projects, we start at 9am and so hydration the previous night is drilled into my voice-artists! Your distance to the microphone and how loud you project are key components in fighting the mouth-noise battle. If you consider then the extreme example of me shouting at you from 30 feet away, the relative balance between the volume of my dialogue to my mouth noise is going to be huge.
You will never hear my mouth clicks. Delivering dialogue louder does not increase mouth noise as well, as mouth noise is just the tongue, saliva and teeth working together. Likewise, if I put my mouth next to your ear and whisper to you, you are much, much more likely to hear my mouth clicks. No matter how loud you shout, or how soft you whisper, the mouth noise and clicks will remain the same volume….
This is replicated in the same way in front of a microphone. If you are close to the mic say 3 inches and whispering, you will need to turn up the input gain to record at a suitable level. Therefore, the dialogue is quiet, and the noise floor and your mouth noises are louder, comparatively. Therefore, the dialogue is nice and loud and the noise floor and your mouth clicks are quieter, comparatively. You see, most voice artists forget that while you are speaking during a voiceover session, you are dehydrating.
You need to keep up with the water drinking throughout. This…is the mark of a pro. Yes, you will be on the toilet in every single break, but you will be re-hired because your voice sounds delicious. You have been warned! Ok, so look, everyone knows that if you eat half a green apple, your clicky-mouth will cease almost instantly. In fact, this works with anything that has that sharp, citric acid. This cleans through the mouth and eradicates the nasty, clicky, dehydrated saliva. You want headlines? I have been a fan of yours since I purchased a course through groupon some time ago. Always spot on as far as advise goes and wonderfully informant, I enjoy your posts thoroughly. Please keep up the good work. To misquote Tony Blair.. Hydration, hydration, hydration.
They are invariably not my best efforts. Still in deficit. But thank you for this, particularly the pictorial evidence. I appreciate the background behind all of the points — it all makes good sense. Take care! Thanks for all the good info, Hugh and the humor! I have another question though, for me, it seems like I actually have too much saliva rather than too dry a mouth, any ideas or suggestions? This is also relatively common believe it or not. The analogy is kids playing computer games who forget to blink…. We keep rolling, back up to the last breath, and repeat the flubbed phrase, getting it right the second time.
The clap, snap, or whatever creates a vertical spike in the wave form, allowing us to see where the error is on the first pass of editing. Why not do the same thing to facilitate a swallow? All the bad stuff will be deleted in the first pass of editing, and the added benefit is that you will see where the swallow is when editing, eliminating the possibility that one will get by and remain on the final audio compression brings out swallowing noise, as well as mouth noise.
Yep I agree with this one. I find, for me, a dry mouth is much better than a moist one so whenever I feel a need I pause, swallow, and make two loud clicks at the side of my mouth which makes editing easier later without disrupting my flow. Thank you so much Hugh! I am relatively new to endeavors within the voiceover industry. My background experience has been with singing, dancing, acting, and instrumentals for stage shows, tv and recordings. I am enthused to have found solid footing for increasing my ability and experience for having signed up with GFTB!
If only I had found you 6 years ago I might have a more active career now. I get so tired of scraping the mud off my rear fender.. Thanks Hugh. This kind of pop sounds kinda like a billiards ball gently hitting another ball. I could continue holding my breath after saying the word and the pop would only happen once I released and took another breath. Essentially any sound that would close off the vocal cords and create a vacuum would cause this pop. That makes the largest difference. And standing up may play a small role as well. I think this is the first time someone has explained so thoroughly the click issue. I do Hydrate and as a consequence have to run to the loo frequently but had not appreciated the effect of compression and the impact 7 inches can have!
I have a couple more things to purchase for my new studio audio chain but becoming a member of GVTB is working its way up my priority list. Thank you for what you and your colleagues are doing for the VO industry. Ian Russell — The British Voice. Hope to see you inside GFTB soon. Yes, always best to fix things at source: you can get a good 5dB more voice relative to clicks simply by throwing away the cans whenever practicable, or turning down the volume.
Try it! Software or hardware, some compression is too slow to catch a millisecond click. This is really helpful. Explains relative volume of clicks in the sound mix, and how mic proximity and projection are the first thing to look at. Try: backing off from the mic speaking louder not using cans standing up for greater projection energy. Hugh- Great post and worth its weight in water.
It seems to have a soothing affect and does an incredible job of cleansing clicky-mouth. Does everyone do this? Seems my continual massive water consumption has yet another benefit! This one really unlooked for, I was just focused on the health aspects! Now, Please, how do you stop hissing Ses? You project more and back off slightly. Rock solid, from top to bottom, gratitude everyone! Annoyances will always be there, but if you keep things balanced, you can cope with them a lot easier-. I found this to be very helpful. One thing I need to ask … will learning to deliver with less mouth and tongue movement, reduce the clicks? Hi Debra — there is that train of thought but down that route madness lies! Just sort out the hydration, distance and projection and you should be ok!
Hi Hugh, not sure if my last message got through. It advertises itself as a way to reduce clicks and other mouth noise. Ta, Tug. Hi Tug. Izotope is one of the better ones to be sure. Do you have an opinion on it? Great article and funny too! I have been very vigilant about hydration which is tricky for me as I am am an avid long distance runner living in Los Angeles. Very hard to stay adequately hydrated here at the best of times. I have cut down on my coffee intake also. A friend says that my mic may be overly sensitive for the job at hand. I am using a Neuman TLM Do you have any thoughts on that? Yep, Not to mention, your brain and motor skills are WAY impaired if you are dehydrated, so reading and speech decline as well! Drink Water!!
Hello and thank you. Thank you. I m sorry to say that all this article just to say drink water was a bit too much. And not even one mention over apple juice…. You will hear a thousand different remedies, old wives tales and more misinformation about how to prevent mouth clicks. Great article! A long time ago, I had the very unpleasant experience to discover constant clicking sounds after recording an entire audiobook. I thought that my voice was incompatible with highly sensitive microphones and I am still itchy whenever facing a Neumann. I am so happy to read this article Hugh! Great advice as always Hugh. This is why I always have a bottle of water at my mixing desk and another one in my sound proof booth.
My other secret weapon is Fishermans Friends Originals and between the two you can record voice overs for hours. There are various problems created by that…. I will work on the distance factor. Thanks for this. Enjoyed this article Hugh. Thanks for the reminders. One aspect to add, if I may, is support from your diaphragm! And of course, its usually good practice to support from the diaphragm, anyway. Another item to make note of is: the sinus cavity. Scanning through the material beforehand to locate good breathing spots has helped. I am apparently blessed with few diction bad habits and have attributed that to Russian language instruction. Thanks for your knowledge and instructions. Cannot emphasize it enough — learn your craft. This, is an important part of it.
Keep drilling it home! Excellent article! I have just spent 8 straight months working in a call center, speaking to 30 to 40 clients a day, I used this time to listen to my voice, and found many things that helped me to sound better, and yes, hydration is HUGE!! I have all the equipment I need, with plenty of practice using it. Now it is time to get real and , with lots of patience, hopefully, successful! This is useful advice for all speakers. Great article. Works like magic.
He only conveys pure revelation revealed to him by Allah. The Divine Word is a reminder and an admonition for the God-conscious people. Allah knows that despite knowing the absolutely incontestable truth many people will continue to reject it. Consequently, it will be a source of eternal remorse, disappointment and punishment in the Hereafter for the disbelievers. In the end, Allah says:.
There is no room for any doubt or suspicion in it. This will relieve his distress and grief. So, proclaim the purity, and glory of your Lord and be among those who prostrate. The best remedy for his distress and grief is to glorify Allah, praise Him and prostrate before Him. According to overwhelming majority, it is Sunnah to recite them and repeat them thrice. Some scholars say it is obligatory. Name The Surah takes its name from the word al-Haaqqah with which it opens. Period of Revelation This too is one of the earliest surahs to be revealed at Makkah. Its subject matter shows that it was sent down at the time when opposition to the Holy Prophet upon whom be peace had started but had not yet become tyrannical.
I stood behind him and listened. Then suddenly an idea came to my mind that he must be a poet as the Quraish alleged. It is a Revelation from the Lord and Sustainer of the worlds. On hearing this Islam entered deep into my heart. For details, see introduction to surah Maryam and Introduction to surah Al-Waqiah. Theme and Subject Matter The first section vv. The first section opens with the assertion that the coming of the Resurrection and the occurrence of the Hereafter is a truth which has to take place inevitably.
Then in vv. In vv. Those who had spent lives in the world with the realization that one day they would have to render an account of their deeds before their Lord, and who had worked righteously in the world and provided beforehand for their well being in the Hereafter, will rejoice when they see that they have been acquitted and blessed with the eternal bliss of Paradise. On the contrary, those who neither recognized the rights of Allah, nor discharged the rights of men, will have no one to save them from the punishment of Allah, and they will be cast into Hell.
In the second section vv. The Messenger by himself had no power to increase or decrease a word in it. If he forges something of his own composition into it, We will cut off his neck-vein or heart- vein. For this is the Truth absolute and pure: and those who give it a lie, will have ultimately to regret and repent. The word al-Haaqqah as used in the text means an event which has inevitably to take place and the occurrence of which in the future is so certain as to admit of no doubt or suspicion.
To use this word for Resurrection and to begin the discourse with it by itself shows that the people were denying its occurrence. They are being told: That which you are denying is inevitable: your denial will not prevent its occurrence. These two questions, one after the other, have been put to arouse the listeners, to make them understand the importance of the theme and listen to what follows with full attention. As the disbelievers of Makkah denied Resurrection and took the news of its coming lightly, they have been warned at the outset, as if to say: Resurrection is inevitable: whether you believe in it or not, it will in any case take place.
Then, they are told: It is not a simple and ordinary thing that a person accepts the news of the coming of an event or not, but it has a deep relationship with the morals of the nations and with their future. The history of the nations, which lived before you, testifies that the nation which refused to believe in the Hereafter and thought this worldly life only to be the real life and denied that man would have ultimately to render an account of his deeds before God, corrupted itself morally until the punishment of God overtook it and eliminated it from the world.
The word al-qariah is derived from qar, which means to hammer, to beat, to knock and to strike one thing upon the other. This other word for Resurrection has been used to give an idea of its terror and dread. These words describe different aspects of the same calamity. The reference is to the towns and settlements of the people of the Prophet Lot peace upon be him , about which it has been said in Surah Hud Ayat 82 and Surah Al-Hijr Ayat 74 , We turned them upside down. The illusion is to the deluge of the Prophet Noah peace be upon him , in which a whole nation was drowned because of this very crime, and only those people were saved, who had listened to and obeyed the Messenger of Allah.
We boarded you: Because the whole human race that exists today has descended from the people who were boarded in the Ark thousands of years ago and thus saved from the deluge. It means: You exist in the world today because in that deluge Allah had caused only the infidels to be drowned and had saved the believers. The conscious ears: the ears which may hear it consciously and take it in. Although the word ear has been used, it implies the hearers who may hear the event and always remember it, take heed from it, and may never forget what dreadful fate the deniers of the Hereafter and the disbelievers of the Messenger of God would ultimately suffer.
While reading the following verses one should keep in mind that at some places in the Quran the three stages of Resurrection which will occur one after the other at different times have been mentioned separately, and at others all the three have been combined and mentioned as a single event. For example, in Surah An-Naml Ayat 87 the first blowing of the Trumpet has been mentioned, when everyone will be suddenly struck with terror. In Surah Az-Zumar , Ayats , mention has been made of the second and third blowing of the Trumpet.
On the second blowing of it everyone will fall down dead, and when it is blown for the third time, all dead men will rise back to life and present themselves before Allah. For explanation, see E. Ns 46, 47 of Surah YaSeen. This is an ambiguous verse the meaning of which is difficult to determine. We can neither know what the Throne is nor can understand what will be the nature of the eight angels upholding it on the Day of Resurrection. It is, however inconceivable that Allah Almighty would be sitting on the Throne and the eight angels would be upholding it along with Him. The verse also does not say that Allah at that time would be sitting on the Throne.
Besides, the conception of God that the Quran gives also prevents one from imagining that the Being Who is free from physical existence as to body, direction and place, should be residing somewhere and His creatures should sustain Him. Therefore, pursuing any research to determine its meaning would be tantamount to disbelief. All this is meant to bring the real Truth within human understanding; it is not, therefore, right to take it literally. It is probable that at the time the records are distributed the righteous man himself will extend his right hand forward to receive his record. For on account of the good treatment that he would have received right from the moment of death till his appearance in the Plain of Assembly at Resurrection would have given him the satisfaction that he was there to be blessed and not to be punished.
At many a place in the Quran it has been explicitly stated that right at death itself it becomes clear to every man whether he is entering the next world in a blessed or wretched state. Then from the moment of death till Resurrection the righteous man is treated like a guest and the evil man as a culprit under custody. After this, from the time the second life starts on the Day of Resurrection, the condition and state of the righteous is entirely different from the condition and state of the disbelievers, hypocrites and culprits. That is, he will be overjoyed as soon as he receives his record and will show it to his companions.
That is, he was fortunate because he had been conscious of the Hereafter in the world and had lived his life with the belief that he would have to appear before God one day and render his account to Him. In Surah Al-Inshiqaq it has been said: And the one whose record is given him behind his back. Probably it will be like this: As the culprit would already be knowing that he was a culprit, and would be aware of what his record contained, he would dejectedly extend his left hand forward to receive it, and then would immediately hide it behind his back so that no one else saw what he had received. That is, I should not have been given this record in the Plain of Assembly and thus publicly disgraced before all mankind, but should have been awarded secretly whatever punishment I deserved.
That is, I should not have been told what I had done in the world. Another meaning of this verse can also be: I never knew what an account was: I never had imagined that one day I would also have to render my account and that all my deeds would be presented before me. That is, I should have become extinct after death in the world and should have experienced no other life after death. The word sultan of the text is used both for an argument and for power and authority. If it is taken in the sense of an argument, the meaning would be: The arguments that I used to give would not work here. Here, I have no argument which I can present in self-defense. And if it is taken in the sense of power, it would imply: The power of which I was so proud in the world is no more.
I have no army here and there is none to obey me. I stand as a miserable helpless creature, who can do nothing to defend himself. That is, not to speak of feeding a poor man himself, he did not even like to say to others that they should feed the hungry. Read my Record! Would that the death that came to me in the world had made an end of me! Little do you believe! Little do you reflect! And Muhammad peace be upon him has seen him on the bright horizon. Here, the question arises; In what sense has the Quran been described as the word of Muhammad peace be upon him and of Gabriel.
The answer is: the people were hearing it being recited by the tongue of the Prophet peace be upon him and the Prophet peace be upon him by the tongue of Gabriel. Thereupon, in one way it was the word of the Prophet peace be upon him and in another way of Gabriel, but a little below it has been explicitly stated: It is indeed a Revelation from the Lord of the worlds, which is being presented before Muhammad peace be upon him by the tongue of Gabriel and before the people by the tongue of Muhammad peace be upon him.
The word Messenger itself points to the truth that the word belongs to neither of them but they have presented it as Messengers of the One Who has sent it down. Another meaning also can be: Hearing the Quran your heart sometimes itself cries out: This cannot be mortal word. Yet you behave stubbornly and refuse to believe in it. In short: I swear by whatever you see and by whatever you do not see that this Quran is not the word of a poet or a soothsayer, but it is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds, which is being presented by the Messenger peace be upon him who is noble and gentle.
Let us now consider in what sense this oath has been sworn. That which was visible to the people was. Everyone knew that he was the best man of their nation in conduct. It could not be expected of such a man that he would forge a lie and attribute it to Allah, Lord of the worlds. He had ruined his business, he had abandoned every ease and comfort, he was being cursed and abused by the same people who had shown him the highest veneration and esteem and had caused even his family and children to be subjected to these agonies besides himself.
A person having selfish motives could not have submitted himself to such tribulations. The word of no poet or soothsayer has been known to have brought about such a wonderful moral change in the people that his follower should become ready to face every hardship and bear up against every persecution for his sake. Apart from stubborn disbelievers, no one could say that the language of the Quran was the language of poetry or sorcery. For a detailed discussion of this, see E.
Ns of Surah Ash-Shuara , E. That is why even if his opponents alleged that he obtained that information secretly from somewhere, no one in Makkah was prepared to believe it. In it they could see no sign and evidence of the polytheism and denial of the Hereafter, which the Arabs had adopted as their creed, but there were signs and proofs of the existence of One God and of the truth of the Hereafter which the Quran was presenting. All this they could see, and what they did not see was: Allah Almighty alone is the Creator and Master and Ruler of this universe: all others are only creatures: none beside Him is God.
Resurrection has to take place inevitably; Muhammad peace be upon him has really been appointed a Messenger by Allah Himself Who is sending down the Quran to him. An oath has been sworn by both truths to affirm that which has been stated in the preceding verses. The object is to impress the point that the Prophet peace be upon him has no authority whatsoever to make any change in the revelation. If he did so, he would be severely punished. The style depicts the prompt and quick action of a king who strikes off the head of an official, holding him by the hand, if he commits a forgery in his name.
Some people have misconstrued this verse to mean that if the heart-vein or neck-vein of an impostor is not immediately severed by Allah, it would be a proof that he was a true prophet, whereas in this verse what has been said is about a true prophet and not about the impostors. Same impostors have even claimed to be God and have thrived and lived long lives in the world, so it could not be a proof of the truth of their claim. For a full discussion of this question, see E. That is, the Quran is an admonition for those who wish to avoid wrongdoing and its evil consequences. Surah Fatiha 2. Surah Baqarah 3. Surah Imran 4. Surah An-Nisa 5. Surah Maidah 6. Surah Al Anam 7.
