Is there a way to make a clarinet sound smoother?
When I use a clarinet (E flat) the notes sound very "separate" rather than sounding a steady sound that changes pitch to the next note. A real clarinet has a smooth sound where the volume is constant, and doesn't decay, the way a piano does for example. A pedal on a piano gives the smoother, continuous tone, but it doesn't work for a clarinet. It just holds the notes and "adds" the next ones, building up the volume and sounding awful. I tried bringing up the reverb on the mixer, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
Any ideas are welcome.
Thanks. This forum has given me a lot of help and it's appreciated!
