I just entered High School, and became sound guy, and am having a little trouble getting used to the better actors. They act a lot closer to eachother, thus causing comb filtering, and sounds bad. The play we did was Darn Yankees, which has a lot of different romances from Joe to Lola and Meg, where they get close, and talk, then walk away, then get close, and back and forth a lot. Our Applegate also liked to talk to people with his nose resting on their foreheads. (...not really) Anyways, what is the best way to deal with these phase cancellations? When they are close together for a long time, I can easily just turn one down, but what do you do if they keep moving around a lot? Do you just get better at moving one mic up and down accordingly? I have heard of just moving the gain instead, but that would mess up the level where I want it. Is there some ancient Chinese technique I have never heard of?
