I was wondering what some of your thoughts are about using reverb and delay in recording trumpet pieces. I am not so much talking about fusion pieces or wah wah type of things. It's more about reverb and delay. Sometimes I hear a recording where the delay is a bit over the top and it hides the true sound of the trumpet... I would call it a crutch. My gut is a little bit of delay or reverb gives the recording more of a live feel because the trumpet recorded straight into a microphone is very dry and doesn't blend well with a pre-recorded track. I just wonder if the purist and pros hear that stuff and feel it's not giving an honest recording.
