I have a shotgun microphone which I'd like to be able to use while using my speakers. I find this to be very practical when, for example, talking to other people without needing a headset. However, unless I have my speakers to a really really low level, the microphone will pickup. How could I make so that this microphone doesn't pickup the speakers too much?
I think that I could use the fact that it's a shotgun to be able to get it out of the speaker's field while still catching my voice, but I've had trouble to get it in a good position (I think it might be due to the reverb in the room in which I am located). I would like to, if possible, not have to use software such as Audition so that I don't have load my computer more. However, if it makes a big difference, it would be ok.
I've looked at other questions, such as this one, but I do not feel like it exactly relates to my problem.
