Update Podcast template so that speech control is not automatically on
I am not a sound engineer, but I had to source one when I could not understand why breath sounds on the podcast were being distorted and amplified.
The response from Adobe was to try a different mic. However, the issue was with the podcast template which automatically switched on this function under the Mixer button.
I was not familiar with this function, and it is not on the tutorial I viewed. Neither was my Adobe contact it seems. The engineer, however, was able to locate the issue and switch it off. There is no need for this to be set to "on" by default, as it makes an otherwise natural voice sound raspish and harsh.
It also hugely over-emphasises breath sounds. Would be very grateful if you could fix this for future users.

Agreed! I was wondering why the quality of my mic went to sub-par levels. I just have a Blue Snowball iCE. Maybe the preset works better for dynamic XLR mics? The tutorial should really tell us something about this.

You can easily export your own template with your preferred settings.
