Today i (sadly) witnessed a funeral, in a church.
Now, when people are speaking through the mic, this weird phasing thing happens. It's really like the mic is hooked up to a phaser. Got me thinking. Would this be due to the heavy reverberation that feedbacks into the mic? Or does it have something to do with the way the audio from the speakers reaches me (direct from speakers and indirect through reverberation)?
Because when the orchestral band starts playing, at the other side of the church , no phasing happens, as there are no mics\speakers used.
Could somebody enlighten me? I know it's a FUNDAMENTAL learning thing, but i couldn't figure it out...
