To delay & reverb an instrument's sound in live performance without the volume overwhelmed


    Feb 16 2020 | 7:47 am
    Hello, I'm using tapin~, tapout~ to create a delay effect in live performance. While I was testing it using the microphone and speaker in my mac, the sound kept layering on one another and the volume is immediately overwhelmed. Would it be the same in a concert hall using separate microphone and speakers? (There would be a mic pointing at a clarinet and 2 or 5 speakers placing around the hall, at the same time playing other sounds, maybe some low rumbling sound. But I only want to delay the clarinet's sound so maybe a shotgun mic would help. I haven't got the chance to test it in the hall though, so I'm wondering if anyone had similar experience. ) I want to reverb the clarinet's sound as well, but the result tested on my mac is the same. I hope the question is not vague. Thank you in advance!
    Here's the files I tested:

      Your best solution: work with someone who has experience with sound reinforcement: they will help you not only with the choice of microphone (many options, depending on the application and budget - surely not a shotgun for a clarinet, where the sound is louder out of the instrument at many different points depending on which note you're playing), but also with being present during rehearsal and performance. If you have to use your computer's microphone to test a patch, just listen through headphones.

      Ok, thanks for your advice! I'd better consult my teacher about this.

      I'd say , use cardiod condenser (preferably small diafragm) place it 30 cm away, facing to the center of the Clarinet.
