Don’t ever rely on it completely!
Yeah… some people consider breaths in their recordings almost as a defect and want them to be removed completely, some just want to reduce them slightly… but the fact is that many of us frequently struggle to remove/reduce them manually, and it’s very boring!.. That’s why major developers (iZotope, Waves) offer their ‘Breath Control’ modules. But do they work as we want them to?
Check out some stuff about the automatic Breath Control procedure — why it’s not the best idea to completely rely on automatic tools yet.
By the way, the same is true for De-Clickers… absolutely!
