I have been told by the first trumpet in my Wind Ensemble that things are progressing nicely for me. He said that the next for me is to start recording myself to listen to the way I sound and start to refine and work on specific things. I tried with microphone and my lap top and it was awful. I really hope I do not sound like that. Even worse the sound would cut-out, I think because the PC just can not handle the dynamics.
What sort of set-up do you use to do this? Thanks your any advice.
