Recording a brass or woodwind section can be quit a challenge. Were does everyone sit? In what order? What mic’s should you use? Were should you place the mic’s? The first thing that is needed is an general understanding of how brass and woodwind instruments produce sound. Brass instruments have a metal mouth piece that the player blows into. While blowing in to the mouth piece the player then makes a buzzing sound with there lips, called embouchure. The tighter a player makes the embouchure the high the note produced, the loser the embouchure, the lower the note produced.
