Me and my girlfriend are side-by-side when playing video games, and we would like to stream the game, so the question of how to pick up the sound had to be brought up. I bought two cheap unidirectional shotgun microphones like this one in order to get the two voices differentiated (we are on a voice channel and it is important to know who talks, one microphone for the two doesn't make the job) but it obviously doesn't work and both microphones pick-up the sound from the other person...
Here is how it is done right now : (top view, the "------" are the screens, the "/" and "\" are the microphones)
\ ------ ------ / [me] [gf]
I tried it this way, with the same result
------ / \ ------ [me] [gf]
Does anyone have a clue about how to tackle this problem ? Is it the wrong type of microphone, or only a positionning thing ?
