Looking for a Certain Audio Effect

Does anyone know of a way to make a sound effect of someone breathing sound like your own breath does when you cover your ears?

I'm using FCP and wondering if there's a certain setting or filter I can use. Thanks.

it is the noise of air passing into a tube, so just do the same.
choose carton tube (even wet) because plastic or metal will have different frequency behavior.

are you looking for just the breathing, or also the "rumble" noise you get when you cover your ears?

It's mostly lower frequency stuff (muffled sound). Try a parametric EQ with the highest band (shelf) set to cut, and drop it to maybe 1,000Hz to start with. This will give you only mid-bass and bass. You can slide it back n forth to fine tune it. Also try without 'cut' mode, and just drop the higher frequencies by 20 dB or so, depending on how much you need intelligibility in the sound.
