I'm shooting an instructional video with a guitar, voice and piano. Sound is live, i.e. no headphones. Guitar and Piano come out of the speakers, but the mic does not. I have a RODE NTG-1, but no matter where I position the speakers, the RODE picks them up, a lot! (trying to position the speakers in the dead area of the polar pattern appears to do nothing). I also have a Shure SM58 that does a great job of not picking up the speakers, but it seems to not be nearly as sensitive as the RODE, and doesn't pick up the voice very well unless the subject's lips aren't more than a couple inches away. Whereas with the RODE, the mic could be up to 2 feet away and still sound great. I also notice when I up the gain using the Shure, there's a lot more noise and rumbling heard, practically non existent with the RODE, and I don't have to increase the gain anywhere as much to get good signal from the RODE. So the question is, is there a mic that can do both: Allow me to position the mic just above the picture frame so it doesn't have to be an inch from his lips Not pick up the sound coming from the speakers that the musicians need to hear? I came into the Shure mic by accident, so I don't know it's history of usage. Is it possible that there's something wrong with the Shure or is what I described the norm (lips must be no more than a couple inches away to get good signal)? Thank you for any suggestions!!
