Agree with the dietary issues!  And you have me thinking along technical lines:  Our voices are always going to be volume-compressed by a producer at some point, or we may do some of that ourselves, particularly in a demo.  Compression brings up background, including clicks.

If the compressor is an analogue one (and they do have admirers, soundwise) it may be of a kind that cannot act fast enough to hold back sharp clicks like the sound K or T, so you end up with clickety-clack.  I think engineers call it overshoot.  I call it embarassing.  Wonder if anyone will please give us a tech steer on this?

Hi Zook - yes, anything dairy gives me the clicks even powdered coffee creamer.  I'm careful what I eat and drink during the day.  Usually it ends up all I eat are granny smith apples and chase it with Red Bull LOL!  Kat did a great job with that article and all her research!

Good Info, Thanks for that link Diane.  Being a heavy coffee addict  I've had the 'dry mouth ' problem. I find  throat lozenges or cough drops help to trigger the salivary responce.
