‘Music For Ever’ is my motto these days. It has been the last live solo I performed in the beginning of March 2020 at the International Theatre Amsterdam in the presence of Dutch composer Calliope Tsoupaki. The music exhales hope and resilience. Its an excellent practice piece for intermediate and advanced students I believe. For this trumpetsolo I have first used a ZoomQ8 videocamera with a SSH-6 stereo microphone in usb mode as sound tool. The picture is straight from the Zoom video meeting at my house. Enjoy!
In next slideshow a Royer Labs R-10 ribbon microphone has been used which gives a very warm sound to the trumpetsolo ‘Music For Ever’ by Dutch composer Calliope Tsoupaki.
In Sonobus (audio online app) I recorded live following cheerful Dixieland tune using a Mackie ProFX10v3 usb-mixer, an Audix i-5 dynamic microphone together with a CD backing track.
In the following video I compare three dynamic microphones: a Shure sm57 and Audix i-5 – which are priced around €100 – and a budget Behringer B906 (€40) in combination with a Mackie ProFX10v3 usb mixer audio interface.
During online lessons cd-accompaniment can be used to play along nice songs. The following video gives an example of a more advanced piece.
In the following video I compare two condenser microphones: a Mackie Element EM-91C and a Mackie Element EM-91CU (usb-microphone) which are priced around €80 (EM-91C) and €50 (EM-91CU).
