Hope you are doing all fine. Have a few questions, hope you can help.
Regarding Mike Presets, I was trying to level the audio of all clips, using the tips Mike gives in this video: https://youtu.be/izbmLO83DX0
I am using the MRC presets, every time when I try to switch to Default, like Mike is suggesting, it switches back to custom?
I try to level all clips to the same volume, using matching clip loudness. My graphs immediately go into the red zone if I aim for 16 Lufs (See picture 1) but the sound of it is still oke (I guess). Even when I play the professionally produced intro, it’s into the red zone. I lowered the master with -12 and -13 as you can see. This makes the podcast very quit. I don’t know what to do, trust the meter, that red is really red and this should be seen as bad audio or just trust on my ears.
To reduce the editing time. The man voice has a lot of mouthclicks. And the women voice shows this a lot (see picture 2) while pronouncing, ge’s and ke’s in words like great and think. Any tips? would removing the windscreen of the Shure Sm7B and placing a pop screen in front help reducing these g’s and k’s for the women voice? Any tips beside the not drinking of dairy products etc… for the men voice? Thanks Guys!
The picture of the audio snippet belongs to this audio clip. The whole clip the meter is in red.

I guess this is the same question as above, trust the meter or the ears. How can I make sure the meter is displaying it correctly so I can work with the meter in the future.
