De-Breath can automatically reduce or eliminate annoying breath sounds. Voice Leveler can automatically make the levels of your recording consistent. These two plug-ins are essential to achieve good-sounding content, but some small tips can get your audio from good to great!
1) Use De-Breath after the Voice Leveler. Voice Leveler detects all quiet parts and increases their volume to match the louder ones. If there are a lot of breaths in your recording, then Voice Leveler might mistakenly increase the volume of some breaths as well.
The Breath Control feature of Voice Leveler excludes most of the breaths from the processing, but some can slip through the cracks. Placing De-Breath after Voice Leveler ensures that all breaths will be caught, so you can process them the way you like.

2) Enable the Monitor Breaths only button and use the Sensitivity slider of De-Breath to ensure that all breaths are detected precisely. You may therefore disable the Monitor Breaths only button and apply the desired processing.

3) If your recording has background noise, using Noise-Remover before removing any breaths will help De-Breath a lot! It will get rid of all the unwanted noise, so De-Breath can more accurately detect the breaths.
